T&P needed please for my family (XP)

Please keep my family in your T&P. While we were on vacation I got a call from my mom saying that her uncle - my great uncle - has gone missing. He lives alone in Alaska - his wife passed away several months ago - and no one has seen or heard from him since the beginning of June. There is a detective on the case and he checked the bank records and phone records and no activity has been made since June 10th. He took out $500 on June 10th and hasn't touch his account or cell phone since then. His house has gone untouched and he hasn't made it to any of his classes (he teaches AA classes faithfully). He was last seen at a church crying out that he needs to see his family in Tx. The Alaskan police contacted the Canadian gov't and asked them to keep an eye out in case he crossed through to head to Texas - but no one has seen him or his truck.

Please pray that we find him. The detective has said he has no hope that we will find him alive - either way - the family would just like closure.

Thanks guys - I appreciate it!

I'm so sorry. How old is your uncle? Does he have any signs of dementia. This same thing happened recently to a family friend. Her dad went missing. He showed early signs of Alzheimer's. They did find him though. I hope your family is able to get some answers. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

He's 69. He has never showed signs of dementia but I guess we don't really know since he lives up there away from family. I hope its something like that and not what the detectives and family assume.

Thanks ladies!

Thanks everyone - My mom has been calling the local police this week to see if they have any more updates - but it looks like they have hit a dead end. :confused: Now we just sit and wait.

Oh, no Jenn..how strange. Is this totally out of the norm for him to take off like this? Hopefully he just had a spontaneous urge to head south. Thinking of you guys....
