No word on Paul yet. It's been almost a full month. With the holidays we're surprised we haven't heard from him...I did find a cool website where you can get the word / pictures out:

I'm sorry to hear about your brother :( Paul has the mental capacity of a 10 year old...he's very trusting, and often taken advantage of. I'm hoping someone saw him get on a bus or ??? He took garbage bags for protection from the cold.

My brother John has been missing for 3 months now. We hope that your loved one is found, you never know how much they mean to you or to others until it's too late.Before moving to Oakridge he lived in the same apartments in Spfld. behind Darimart.
