Could we change the quote of the week to a link here? We used to have that thing from the charity electro-man up there.

I do not really know Dennis, but would it be in his character to suddenly disappear in that way? From what I've read, based on his posts here, he seemed to me like a person who would speak his mind about almost anything.

In any case...I hope he is OK. I will try to keep my eyes aware for him during my city travels.

He is. Though his forum vitriol is more play than real.

It's not that that isn't on anyone's mind PeZ, or that it is an unconsidered circumstance and outcome, it just that I think everyone is trying to stay positive y'know?

Let's not forget that his family and friends other than Nomad may be looking at this page... Nothing is served by speculating and Dennis is best served, I think, by keeping the discussion here limited to the facts.

If it is ok, I'll be sending emails to all cab companies in NYC and ask them for info and for any help they can give. Maybe if more of us email them it'll get more attention? It is a long shot but who knows?

Somehow I don't think they're going to care about emails from random strangers on the internet that don't have any direct connection to him. Especially considering the sheer amount of traffic NYC cabs get. Wouldn't the cops be investigating them anyway?

Probably but if there are enough people asking them for help\info, maybe they'll help out? As I said before, it is a long shot.

What's the status of getting the banner changed to link to this thread? I see the quote of the week changed, but I think this is more important.

Just figured out the quote thing.

Just to add in my own worthless two cents, does anyone have access to his computer? One would think a meeting like this would have been coordinated in advance via e-mail, instant messenger, etc, and log files including their full names may exist.

I believe his brother had accessed his computer to check for any messages. Obviously, I don't know if he found anything.

Wow, this is rough. Had missing person situations on a few different boards I read. Usually they're resolved in a few days. Worst one was a woman's teenage daughter who just ran off to do stupid kid shit. My sister managed a bad one where she disappeared off the bus she was supposed to be on for a trip to see a friend. They had a breakdown and layover that delayed the trip by a few hours. Her friend shows up at the depot and they say the bus arrived and she wasn't there. They were reading off the schedule of when it was supposed to be there rather than whether it actually did. She had her cell off for some stupid reason and never saw fit to call anyone so it gave us all a good scare. We didn't hear shit until she actually got to the destination and called for her ride.

Hope he turns up ok.

i remember at one point in third grade some idiot kid went to a friends house without telling his grandmother and the police wound up getting called. Yeah it was resolved in 90 minutes but it still shows how easily this kind of shit can happen.

I'm starting to get a bit...miffed at the inability to locate Ron and John. Not at Nomad, but Certainly NYPD should be able to...figure something out. subpoena the cell phone company (surely there is a record of calls made to/from there and certainly calling them will yield SOME kind of results) I mean - these two jokers likely hold the KEY to finding him and I'm wondering why the police aren't busting down doors trying to find those two. Just....pisses me off.

Welcome to the wonderful world of the Law As Written.

Until and and unless the NYPD can get a warrant to check those guys' phone records their hands are tied, and given that so far, their involvement is limited to 'he wanted to meet us' as per hearsay I seriously doubt that would allow for anything more than polite interrogation even if Police knew who they are. Which they don't seem to.

And while I'm unsurprisingly personally in favour of the 'keep kicking in doors until somebody talks' approach to solving crimes, the real world doesn't work like that.
