    Someone was close enough to see how tall he was and what he was wearing, but not his race? Huh. Do they want tips to find him or do they want to ignore the elephant in the room?

    Ignore the elephant it is.

    I'll be on the look out for a medium build guy in regular clothes. May or may not still be running.
