    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Brooklyn Fashion Designer’s Disappearance Sparks City-Wide Search

    Budding fashion designer James “Jay” Ott has been missing since Saturday night, and his friends have began a city-wide search for the missing Bushwick resident.

    Coworkers knew something was wrong when Mr. Ott, a resident of the McKibbin lofts, failed to show up to work on Monday.

    “That’s when we all started to get worried,” Mr. Ott’s coworker at fashion investment firm The Dock Group Beatrice Kim told Gothamist. “When we all started talking to one another, that’s when we realized no one had heard from him since Saturday evening.”

    The Olsen twins are also sending out his photo as he used to work for their fashion label.

    He was in a good place last time we talked Saturday morning, his college friend Liz Ricketts told the Post. "It's strange for him to not reach out when he is struggling with something. It's not like him."

    Friends, Family Lead Search for James 'Jay' Ott

    http://www.wwd.com/fashion-news/fash...ay-ott-7621042


    As of Thursday, there were conflicting reports as to when exactly Ott was last seen. NYPD reiterated Thursday that surveillance footage shows that Ott was last spotted March 22 at 9:50 p.m. in his apartment building — The McKibbin Lofts at 248 McKibbin Street. However, Ott's Facebook page was updated earlier in the day to note video footage showed him leaving his apartment building March 23 around 4:35 a.m. At that time, Ott was said to be wearing a bright blue cap, a dark-denim jacket, loose-fitting light colored pants and dark shoes. He was believed to have been last seen walking north on Bushwick Avenue at the corner of Boerum Street.

    I would think there would be more cameras on his path. Anybody know what kind of area that is, and what is on the street where he was going? Is is shops or housing etc?

    I know it says he had 'emotional problems'...I hope he knows that he means so much to his friends and coworkers that they immediately reported him missing...that's strong love from people not related to you. Hope he decided to take a breather somewhere and is alive and well.

    No indication of where he might have been headed?

    I saw his flyer all over midtown east today on my walk down to Grand Central. His family and friends seem to be doing a great job of getting his info out there. Much prayers for Jay and hopefully there will he good news soon.

    On his missing FB page, there's a guy saying LE has not been there to talk to his neighbors. But I guess if he's seen down the street, I don't know what the neighbors could say about his disappearance. But seems like they would at least see if anybody had talked with him. I wonder if no more cameras are available farther down that street. Someone asked on that page if he made it to the bridge.
