  • Is hard to believe the guy pictured is 43! Looks like it might be his Dad? Either way hope he is found safe!

  • That’s called hard hard miles ya know like a road full of potholes ,all fun aside I hope he is not dead ,but it don’t look good .I’d hate to speculate on how many unmarked grave s in them there hills are lost and forgotten .

  • A lot of times, flatlanders come out West and don’t know how to drive in the hills.

    • Better chance he wasn’t in the car and something else happened. Super sad for his family. Hope this turns out ok.

    • Pennsylvania is not flat, it is full of mountains.

    • I hope you realize Pennsylvania sits within the appalachian mountain. We’re far from “flatlanders”, you can’t drive anywhere workout dealing with mountains and crapy roads.

    • I’m shocked and saddened to hear this about my friend. Please don’t judge him and certainly don’t make assumptions of any sort. Everyone has a story. He has a heart of gold and the most charming smile. Just be positive for his family and say a prayer or two. Btw
      There are plenty of mountains in Pa!!

  • Lotta bears up there (sigh)

  • So many missing persons. 🙁

  • This story hits deep.. Except my brothers car was never found. I pray for his loved ones.

  • Prayers for His Loved ones😢

  • Thank you to all who have expressed hope and sympathy it is very much appreciated.
    To those who feel the need to comment on the way this man looks you should really feel shame. You have no idea who this man is, you have no idea what this man has faced in life. You have no idea the struggles, the pain, the sorrow that he has had to endure throughout his 43 years. For you to sit there and pass judgment when that is no place of yours, and to make your own uninformed assumptions and post your opinions of him for the world to see…. For those who love him to see? If you look past the initial barely even glancing at him as I’m sure you did when first reading this article, you will probably see sadness when you really look at him. I truely pray for you that you are never faced with the situation we are faced with right now.
    This man’s heart is one of the warmest that I have ever known. This man is extremely loved and cared for, by many people. And now our souls may never rest while we are still walking the earth without him, if that’s how this turns out to be.
    You should really feel ashamed that you have so little respect for another human life that all you can really think about is wow look at him no wonder. If you would like to backlash and give me all kinds of stupid childish comments please feel free. Honestly that only says just a little bit more about your true character. In which case, I again feel very sorry for you.

  • This is so sad….I can’t believe ppl are commenting on his looks. Seriously this man is missing, no need to judge. I feel so bad for his family. I can’t even imagine what they are goin through. I know his daughter, she is the sweetest person and I’m sure he is too. Such a sad story…prayers 4 him and the family…
