    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."

    The Brevard County Sheriff's Office used bloodhounds and its helicopter. The family has handed out hundreds of flyers, too. But the search has come up empty.

    Texas Equusearch members said they're doing a methodical foot search in hopes of finding the man.

    "We're going to search very thoroughly," said Harry Rogers, of Texas Equusearch. "I know people have been out here searching previously. We're going to go over some of those areas, and there may be areas that aren't very easy to access that may have been overlooked, and we're going to be going into those areas taking a real close look."

    Thank heavens for Texas Equusearch and an on-the ball Sheriff's Dept. I couldn't bear it if I heard one more 'dogs lost the scent on the highway so he/she must have got into a vehicle' scenario......
    We 'embraced' the missing Bob Harrod case as requested but 6 years on, are still waiting for further guidance

    While much of the search has concentrated in Brevard County, the Indian River County Sheriff's Office is now aware of the case as well.

    The family believes since the man lived in Indian River County twenty years ago, he may have headed this way. Family members tell us that he was on foot but may have been picked up by someone.

    Though his worried relatives have distributed roughly 4,000 fliers bearing his photo, Robert "Bob" Harrison remains unaccounted for 11 days after he was reported missing...

    "It's hard. It's hard. My grandmother is used to having him home every night," said Harrison's granddaughter, Heather Bishop of Vero Beach.

    "My uncle was really close to my grandfather. And it's taken a toll, not having any answers, not knowing where to look next," Bishop said. "We're not stopping by any means. We just wish we knew where to look," she said.

    An off-duty police officer in St. Cloud may have spotted Harrison about 7:30 p.m. Saturday, said Heather Bishop, Harrison's granddaughter. A man matching his description was walking along Hickory Tree Road, just south of U.S. 192 on the east side of town.

    He was last seen wearing blue jeans and a white T-shirt underneath a gray and white Western-style cowboy shirt with snaps. He had on one gray sneaker with a Velcro fastener; his other shoe was found at home.

    Family pleads for public’s help in finding missing elderly man

    WEST MELBOURNE, Fla. —
    Family and friends of a missing elderly man are desperate for his return, and Saturday they turned to the public to help find the 80-year-old. Robert Harrison’s family has posted hundreds of fliers across Brevard County and has performed dozens of searches.
    “We’re here today asking, pleading for you to help us,” said Robert Harrison’s daughter, Christy Lathero. Robert Harrison suffers from dementia and high blood pressure, and needs his medicine. “If you’re watching this please keep your eyes open. We don’t know where he might be,” Lathero said during a news conference Saturday.

    "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."

    The family of a Brevard County man, who has been missing for a month, is desperately pleading for help finding him. Deputies haven't been able to find Robert Harrison, 80, after he wandered away from his house. “It's going to take someone seeing him to get him home,” said Harrison’s daughter, Christy Lathero. “That's our only hope.” Harrison's family said the night he went missing, his wife, Barbara, woke up at 3:30 a.m. to find the lights in their West Melbourne home on and the alarm turned off.

    Robert "Bob" Harrison is afflicted with Alzheimer's disease. The 80-year-old vanished from West Melbourne a full 105 days ago, throwing his family into emotional turmoil.

    And with hunting season starting this week, Bonnie Harrison fears someone will find her father-in-law by stumbling upon a grisly discovery...

    Last month, Bonnie said Harrison's younger brother, Charlie, 73, was struck by a train and killed in West Virginia. "That just about was the straw that broke the camel's back on all of us. It's been a very rough three and a half, four months here," Bonnie said.
