    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."

    I don't understand why this is the first I'm hearing of this, when I live and work right in the area. This Tuesday, an older woman in the same neighborhood went missing and there were posters and news stories and a circling helicopter broadcasting her description within hours. (She was found.) It's been a slow week on campus, being spring break, but I've seen literally no mention of this missing student. I hope he's okay.

    This article is of an 18-year old (name doesn't seem to be released) who attends SDSU. Wilton Mak of this thread is 22 and attends UCSD.

    ACK, you're right, I saw SDSU and assumed it was Wilton. Will set up a thread for this 18-year old SDSU student. Thank you!

    UCSD Police is currently working in tandem with San Diego Police to investigate Mak’s case and have enlisted the public to provide any relevant information.
    UCSD Patrol Sergeant John Smart told the UCSD Guardian there were two possible sightings in the Clairemont area, near the Clairemont Town Square shopping center. Detectives have been looking at video surveillance of those areas to confirm that it was indeed Mak at those locations.

    I'm local and have not seen this!

    One thing that stood out immediately to me is the Wednesday sighting. I don't 100% buy it unless confimed by family. The Clairemont area has a high Asian population (for SD), I'm afraid a person could be misidentified.

    Bumping for Wilton. I can find no updated information on him. Prayers for his family.

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.
