    Well, I would hope it was 5am as the other poster said that he was IN his parents home and not NEAR it. And if he was NEAR it, why didn't someone ask him where he was going at that ungodly hour with only a guitar case? Come on people - if you want us to help find missing people, tell us the whole story.

    Life is good, that makes way more sense. I am in Wilson, and will certainly keep an eye out for him. Praying for a safe return.

    It was 5 am Wed. morning and the guitar case said "This machine kills FASCISM". I hope we can find him or he comes home.
