    FL - James Arthur, 80, Cape Coral, 27 October 2011

    James Arthur, 80, was supposed to drive his grandson, 23-year-old Garrett Kern, to a probation appointment this afternoon but Kern never showed up at the appointment.

    Kern was later seen at BA Hustlers Pool Hall on Santa Barbara Boulevard. He was driving his grandfather's car, but Arthur was not present.

    From winknews link upthread:

    The video shows Kern at Hustlers Bar, where police say he made disturbing comments about his grandfather, James Arthur's, well being.
    On Friday morning, police say someone match Kern's description tried using Arthur's credit card in Gainesville but it was denied.
    Wow...this doesn't look good for Mr. Arthur.


    Family members say the missing grandfather is diabetic, has Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease and doesn't have any of his medication.

    Police believe Garrett Kern, 24, is responsible for the disappearance of 80-year-old James Arthur, who has been missing since Thursday.

    Court records indicate he has a history of violence and that his grandmother, Sally Arthur, feared for her and her husband's safety.

    "When Garrett is on drugs, I would not put anything past him," she stated in a petition for a restraining order filed in 2009.

    Popping in to check on Mr. Arthur. Although it seems unlikely, I was hoping he had been found safely by now.

    The remains were clothed consistent with garments worn by James Arthur the day he was reported missing, officials said, adding they believe the body is his.

    Positive identification still is pending

    Detectives will be processing the scene for several hours and will be working with the Lee County Medical Examiner's Office to determine a cause of death, police said.

    The Arthur family has been notified of the discovery and has asked for privacy.

    Meanwhile, CCPD detectives are in Chicago interviewing Garrett Kern, Authur's grandson, who police say is a person of interest in his grandfather's disappearance.
