    I wonder if he was on foot, driving or taking a bus--Union Memorial Hospital is on the same street as his home, so I am assuming he was headed there.

    Some pretty interesting info at that link, Los. Says Mr. Banks was last seen with a family member, and was reportedly at a bus station, but LE says they have no information that he took a bus. Certainly a head-scratcher. Sounds like LE is making an effort to really look for him. Hope there's word soon.

    According to Banks' family, he was last seen with his son-in-law, Robert Ricks, at a Megabus station; however, police said they had no information to corroborate Banks' getting on a Megabus.

    Court documents showed that in June, Ricks was at an Alabama jail in federal custody after his arrest in March under an alias, Robert Quran Hick. He was accused of using an airline ticket in someone else's name and flying from Atlanta to Birmingham, Alabama, then getting two other boarding passes in someone else's name to fly to two other destinations.

    Wow. This is one heck of a good bad story....

    Corpse's missing watch leads to arrest
    Detroit — The suspension and arrest last month of a Detroit Police homicide sergeant who was caught wearing an unknown corpse's watch set off a chain of events that led to the slain man's identification and a capture of the suspect — the victim's son-in-law.

    Detroit police investigators in March found the badly decomposed remains of a body behind an abandoned school on the city's northwest side, Detroit Police Sgt. Michael Woody said.

    The man, who had suffered multiple stab wounds, wore an expensive, German-made watch. The case was originally assigned to homicide Sgt. Alex Vinson, who was unable to identify the victim. The homicide was put into the cold case file.

    In October, investigators decided to re-open the case, thinking his watch might provide a clue to his identity — but the watch they found in the Homicide Section property room was a cheap model that didn't match the one that had been photographed when the body was first recovered.

    Police officials were informed about the discrepancy, and an internal investigation was launched, which led to Vinson, Woody said.

    From Juy 2015:

    http://www.al.com/news/birmingham/in..._for_plan.html

    Ricks, who pleaded guilty earlier this year to using false identity documents, was sentenced by Bowdre to time-served during Friday's hearing...

    Ricks, however, won't be released because of a Detroit police detainer and arrest warrant for murder against him for the death of his father-in-law, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Elizabeth Holt.

    Stewart Banks Jr., 56, who worked as a clerk in Baltimore's public defender office, had been reported missing in 2014, according to The Detroit News. He was last seen leaving home with his son-in-law, Ricks, on Feb. 21, 2014, Holt said.
