    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."

    Police are searching for a missing Georgia Tech student and fraternity vice president who has been missing since Friday.

    <snip>

    Officials with Phi Delta Theta confirmed that Hubert is vice president of the Georgia Tech chapter of their fraternity.

    The fraternity was recently suspended at Georgia Tech over accusations of racial slurs against another student which the fraternity continues to deny.

    <snip>

    At this point, officials do not believe foul play is involved.

    However a spokesperson for the fraternity said that they have been assured that their house will be heightened over the next several days by way of Georgia Tech's own police force.

    His FB: https://www.facebook.com/jimmyjamme?ref=br_rs

    It seems dressing up is his thing.

    A friend joked on his FB that he was worried about him b/c he wasn't in a full suit in that airplane wing photo above.

    He joked back that something was wrong with him and he hadn't bought a new tie in 3 weeks and even sometimes was wearing a shirt with wrinkles.

    update - still searching
    http://www.wsbtv.com/videos/news/pol...t-seen/vDcqG7/
    new info: car was left at fraternity house; he was walking; last call was to his brother about 11pm while he was walking - he stated he was not feeling well.

    IMO - doesn't sound too good but everyone is looking hard. $10,000 award. he was at a sorority event with all those people and sounds like he left early alone because he wasn't feeling well. wasn't worried about his safety...

    not sure of Foundry at Puritan Mill (event)
    East Auburn Ave towards DeKalb Ave (last ping of phone GPS 1 am Saturday)
    fraternity location?

    Gosh....no foul play? I don't believe a word of that. The picture indicates a young person that has been attacked.
    Perhaps he got into a fight with someone...or...I don't know what. But to me, his appearance indicates foul play.
    Glad he was found....
    Sleuthing....from the perch.

    Seems like your thought of a fight is the only possibility outside of foul play... Perhaps there was a threat to keep quiet if he had been attacked?

    Mom is saying he was beaten up.

    I can't link to it but you can find it from Jimmy's FB page - his mom's (DO are her initials and she's commented and/or liked recent things - she's got another pic of him up with his brother.

    Anyway, her post immediately after he was found said he was beaten up and unconscious and found by railroad tracks by a friend who was searching.

    The ambulance was just picking him up when she (mom) posted that. Although I suppose if he was unconscious the person could have assumed that he was beaten up based on appearance, since presumably he still wasn't awake/talking at that point, but...still...I think there's more to this that'll come out.

    Jeffery said Hubert claimed he was beaten by a group of homeless men after he left the party. Police are investigating those claims.

    As a retired Atlanta Fire Captain that spent much of my career working the territory where GA Tech student James Hubert, was located. This was the most likely scenario for his disappearance, imo. The outcome, although tragic, was a very fortunate one. Kudos for the GT students' persistence in their search. Answered prayers..

    <snipped from http://www.wsbtv.com/news/news/local/police-search-missing-georgia-tech-student/nn5Wp/>

    Hes hurt, but hes alive, said Didi Hubert. Hes breathing, and hes on morphine, so hes resting peacefully.
    Monday night, Didi Hubert posted on Facebook, "He was mugged robbed and had the **** beaten out of him. He's in ICU with broken vertebrae, broken ribs, broken scapula, punctured lung, blood on the brain, paralyzed left side (Hopefully temporary). He's in a lot of pain and on morphine resting. He left the formal and took MARTA to get home. To set the record straight he was NOT ON DRUGS, he was NOT DRUNK. He left the formal alone and jumped on MARTA. When he got off the train he was jumped, beaten up, robbed and left for dead. End of story."

    Happy he is alive. Now GA Tech students. Come up with a GPS for children, worn like wrist watch and which can't be taken off without a special individualized key, like mom's fingerprint. It must be titanium, retail at $99.00 and be serviced by cell providers. Too much to ask?
