    ETA: Josh is 24. Here's another post by the same friend with more info. We need to get this friend to post over here!

    These are the posts that first got my attention. I'm familiar with this message board, though I'm not a member. It was being shared all over my Facebook newsfeed since I have friends associated with this board. I was not sure if I could post that actual link or not. A new one is going around with a different picture from WXVT ch 15.

    I'm south of the Delta and we do not share any news stations nor has there been any coverage of this young man on our local stations. I mention "young man" and only know this from seeing his picture. I have not come across any mention of his age yet.

    I hope he is found soon. Hopefully he just needed some time away and failed to realize the upset that he would cause.

    I can't find his social media which seems odd. I am going to message someone closer to that area since like quill, we don't share news stations.

    I live in Cleveland, and there are lots of signs/flyers around, and there is news coverage in the form of occasional updates. I don't know him, but it's not a big place. I hope he just needed a break and isn't sure how to come home with all the publicity.

    Edited to add that there has been disagreement about the color of the truck; it has been described as grey, silver, and beige.

    Yep. I was just about to post that WLBT ch 3 is picking this story up now. I don't know why it took this long.

    The truck color has been called "beige" by the family. It was originally listed as silver. It seems that the factory color is called "silver birch" but the truck Is more beige in person. There have apparently been consumer complaints about this color since most who ordered it thought they were getting silver. It must really look beige. If you look it up online it appears sliver. So the truck description should be changed from " silver" to " BEIGE".

    It was on my local news in central MS tonight. They did indeed give the truck desription as beige.

    Studying the FB missing page, trying to figure out the sequence of events.

    Best I can tell, the last time anyone saw Josh was when he left work at Sanders Seed just before 10pm on Tuesday, so it was after dark. His phone apparently last pinged in the Pace/Beulah area, which is between Cleveland and Rosedale, less than 20 miles from where he worked, but no word on what time that was.

    Josh seems like a fine young man, no hint of drug or criminal activity, no apparent mental health issues, holding a steady job, living with his brother. Couldn't find a FB profile for him, am wondering if it would do much good to search for a Twitter or any other SM account. There are people just don't do social media.

    I saw a rumor posted on FB just before I ran out to do grocery shopping. I was hoping it was only a rumor.

    Prayers for his family and friends.
