"most of us"? Who wouldn't?
As for what you posted.... On the contrary.
She should be giving every detail possible, staying in communication in every format possible, and interacting with the people that frequent that area.
If it were my son, I would be telling everyone every update and tiny piece of information that might help, no matter what people say.
Nobody was insulting her or her son, making light of the situation, or even blaming her or her family.
Not sure where YOU are coming from.
Thanks Rik... I do try to interact with people who are familiar with the area and who have the means/ability to help out in finding Mickey, or to just pass along information to others outside of Facebook..
Spreading his images and the fact that he is missing is about the best thing I can do right now, outside of spending 24/7 in Anza Borrego trying to find him.. Personally, I think he made it out of the desert-- but there are 3 possible scenarios that are stuck in my mind:
~he made it to Shelter Valley or Hwy 78, called someone or found someone who took him in, and he's still with them-- whether or not by choice, I don't know
~ it would've probably been dark when he made it to 78.. he could've been hit by a drunk driver or by anyone, no telling what could've happened there.
~ he found an abandoned shelter, found some means to get food, and is just hiding out.
Those are my hopes.
Nothing besides the blanket (from his Jeep) was found in the desert, which is good.. but I understand the reality of this~ he was alone, he was probably tired, he had no food or water (as of 3pm Friday,leaving Mobiland where he was camping), no map, no gps, he did NOT know the area (media says he'd been out there several times, but thats not true), the moon set at 1am that night so it would've been dark, he had no money, no phone service, and the wind was blowing hard that night & there was a light rain-- temps were in the 40s. And there were coyotes and mountain lions..
I "think" he would've found shelter from the weather, and continued to walk when the rain stopped or hopefully when the sun came up (which lessens the chance of being hit on 78)..
But what happened from there, I just don't know..
Someone here insinuated that I'm not welcome here, and if thats the consensus, I'll leave. Thanks to the people who have helped out/will help out/sent good thoughts.. The only thing I ask is for people to keep an eye out for him because he's out there somewhere, and all it takes is for ONE person to see/hear something that leads to finding him...and my goal is to find that person.
