    OK - John Varner, 55, Bristow, 3 Sept 2015

    He told his family he was going for a ride on his 3-wheeler Harley Davidson, and never returned. His cell phone was left at home.

    The family said he left his cell phone at home and was last seen in a black shirt driving south on Main Street in Bristow.

    A little new info. Why would you take your blood pressure medicine and 'severe' pain medicine for your back for a couple hours ride on your 3 wheeler? HBP meds are usually taken in the morning or evening and I don't think taking pain medicine and riding a three wheeler is doctor recommended. Makes me kind of worry . . .

    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.

    This is disturbing news. He didn't take his phone with him--which I would if going for a ride in case I had trouble--but took along prescriptions? Could this point towards considering suicide?

    I note that the things he did not take with him are the things that allow him to be tracked in one way or another.

    I was thinking more on the lines of if he took his medication with him, he knew he would be gone for awhile, and he didn't take the cell phone because he didn't want to be tracked.
    If he were to commit suicide, would he even think to take his medications along?
    On the other hand, people do all kinds of unexpected things then commit suicide.
    I hope he is ok and comes back home safely.

    Well, I was thinking perhaps he was considering using the meds to commit suicide?

    I was thinking about the blood pressure meds.( But I don't know if he took too much of those what would happen.)
    I can see your point about the pain meds.
    Sad story if that is what transpired.

    Too much blood pressure medicine lowers the bp to dangerous levels, and too much pain medicine (assuming opiates) will cause respiratory depression. Used as prescribed, they're fine, but taking too much of either or both would be dangerous.

    He was found in Roswell, New Mexico, and that he was taking a trip down memory lane.

    Very short article.

    I'm so glad he was found safe. The picture of him with all of the kids clamoring to get on his trike is so cute. It would have been a shame if something happened to him.

    Next time, tell someone you are getting lost for a while, Mr. Varner. Lots of people out there love you.

    Maybe he is married to a more "not without me or my permission" type. This could have been the easier way out for a short trip. Sad, if true.
