    Well...yes, I was being sarcastic about the description (or lack thereof), but didn't intend any disrespect to the family. And I think if I was the family, I'd want there to be some more information out there to make it more likely that he'd be found.

    Your point is well-taken regarding the description; however, consider how you would feel if this were your loved one/family member - - and you saw this sarcastic comment...

    Quick! Everyone be on the lookout for a slightly tall white dude wearing jeans. I've seen at least 25 people matching this description today. I think the CH police are sick of my calls.
