    I think it was mentioned, but it's worth saying again. He has the stickman tattoo on his right arm.

    I hate to type this, but here's an update.

    Today on the 6 PM news, it was reported that police will be searching a landfill. I suppose the silver lining is that they're leaving no stone unturned so they're searching everywhere for everything.

    I wish I had more, but that appears to be it at this moment. Keep your eyes on http://www.nbc4i.com (NBC affilliate) and it appears that our local CBS affiliate http://www.10tv.com is now offering updates as well as this link with video.



    Here's also a related story from the local ABC and Fox affiliates (they share the same news team), but don't seem to update their website as much as the others. Apparently some of the flyers were pulled down due to their condition, but were scheduled to be replaced this morning with new ones.
    http://www.wsyx6.com/newsroom/oh/topstory/topstory2.shtml


    Here's this update as well:
    Brian's family and friends will be taking donations tonight at The Lodge Bar in the Arena District from 7 to 9 pm. The money will be set aside for Brian's reward fund.

    If any Central Ohio people don't know where that is, it's quite close to Nationwide Arena. If you want to go, please be advised that there is a hockey game tonight at the arena from 7 PM to 9:30 PM (or so), so you may want to have a friend drive you so you don't have to find, then pay for parking. If you're more familiar with a bar called the Brickyard, it's actually been re-named. What's sort of cool about that, is that Even Flow actually played there in 2003, around the time that Pearl Jam appeared at Germain.

    If you are outside the area, or can't make it tonight, 1-800-645-8477 or 1-800-645-TIPS is the crimestoppers number. I don't know how you can donate money to Brian's specific fund over the phone, but i'm sure there's a way.

    That's awful...well, hopefully his family and g/f will find him soon. But, it did say his mother just passed away a few weeks ago, so I imagine he might want to be on his own for awhile, but still it's hard to understand why he'd leave his family like that.

    I don't think he left his family...even if you were that upset, you would have talked to someone - at least somebody out there.

    But that didn't happen at all...and someone mentioned it happened to a girl at the same place last year...

    Especially after two weeks...that's just too long not to talk to someone under that state of mind. You gotta eat somehow? Surely, they have ran checks on his debt card/account to see if it was used/withdrawn somewhere...

    It doesn't look too good in my opinion. :(

    But I'm holding out hope for his family/friends/girlfriend's sake.

    I hope this will turn out to be a HUGE relief for everyone invovled!!!

    Indeed you would. In fact, I think we'd all like to know what happened to that one person who said they knew something. And now they're not talking? I think we'd all like to know why they're not talking, not necessarily just what they know. In this case, I think "why" might be more important than "what".

    I think one of those three links I recently posted mentioned that there's been no activity on his credit/debit cards. Obviously that would provide a huge lead.

    Seconded.

    Let them sing:
    "I just want to scream, "Hello."
    My God its been so long. Never dreamed you'd return."


    And not:
    How I've opened up. Release me.
    Release me. Release me dad. Release me.


    or even:
    And now my bitter hands shade beneath the clouds of what was everything.
    All the pictures have all been washed in black. Tattooed everything.


    You get the idea. The first sample is definetely a lot happier (in my opinion) than the second two.

    has he been checking his myspace from somewhere? I noticed his last login was only on the 12. Or is someone else doing that.

    This is going on too long...no sign of Brian??

    Another thing bothers me is that even with the passing of his mother a few weeks prior to his disapperance, he still planned to go on spring trip with his girlfriend - which indicates that he's willing to go away to be with his girlfriend and away from the sadness/pressure.

    If you were to disappear just for a few days, you would have known better to cancel all the arrangments for the trip - hotel/flight and whatnot... to save some $$.

    Not getting a good vibe right now...it's depressing me. :(

    .......so, I have to do something.......anything........
    I'm spreading the word to other message boards, and did a mass email to everyone in my address book, including the link to the Lantern (thanks, Kat).
    If anyone has any more ideas on how to create more awareness, please speak up.

    So sorry to hear about this. Makes my heart heavy.

    Brian, still thinking of you.

    Fins, i've been loosely following this story via this thread and i've noticed that you've had a particular interest in it. Do you think that the missing man could have posted here during this? I have a suspicion. I am wondering if you do, too.

    And if it is so, Brian, if you're reading this, whatever it is that has you doing what you're doing, it's gonna blow over, everything will be alright.... Just take your time, do what you have to do... I think you know there are a lot of people here waiting to hear from you. It's okay.

    Peace.

    I hope he returns, haven't really been following it though. He may be reading this right now, like you said you don't know.

    I'm thinking, if the homeless guy's statement is credible (see my post above), then people in Brian's area who post on here could try to memorise his face from the photos on the webpage, and then when you're in the busier places of town where street people tend to congregate, make an effort to look in the faces of a few of these people to see if there's a match. Really, you might see something that the cops miss.

    Fantastic Idea. If he's a fan, he may be at some of the shows too.

    this sucks.
    he seems like a guy that can take care of himself, so i'm having a hard time believing he was overtaken by some dark force out there, you know?

    then there's the suicide sort of thing.

    i hope not, but it's beginning to seem that way.
