    Search for missing Ozarks man continues
    William Mays Jr. went missing from a group home in Forsyth on Saturday.

    The search continues for a missing man in the Ozarks. William Mays Jr. went missing from a group home in Forsyth on Saturday. Mays is mentally handicapped and off his medication.

    "His persona was like a child. He was 6'8 but he was just a child, a gentle giant you might say," says Lynn Hamling.

    Hamling runs a business down the street from the group home where Mays lived. lived. Hamling says she saw Mays just before noon on Saturday. She says Mays told her he was blowing off steam.

    The group home where he lived, wouldn't talk on camera with us. But the assistant manager says problems started Friday night. She says there was a switch in May's medication and he wasn't reacting well to it.

    They called for an ambulance, but he wasn't taken to the hospital because she says Mays didn't want to go. The next morning he signed out that he was going to leave the property, something staff say is not uncommon . He was supposed to come back in a couple of hours, but he never did.

    The original site of the town of Forsyth itself disappeared:

    Around the middle of the century plans were being made in Washington that would bring great change to the little town of Forsyth. Plans were being made for the construction of a dam (Bull Shoals) on the White River, approximately 80 miles below Forsyth. Two choices were left for the town; the town could be kept intact and moved to a new location and be reimbursed for its property or it could do nothing and cease to exist. After some speculation and uncertainty a plan of action was initiated. The city limits of Forsyth were extended 2 miles west of the old town site (now called Shadow Rock Park) .... In the early 1950s the town of Forsyth was moved to this location.

    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)

    We are all one poor choice from being a subject on this forum. Think twice.
