    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."

    Left all his ID'S, cards and cash at home? Wish there was more information!

    I also wish there was more info- like what time he was last seen at. I drove near that corner on Tuesday on my way back from the vet (not that I would have noticed him either way) but I wish we knew whether it was day or evening when he was spotted outside his house. There are lots of bodegas, a supermarket, some fast food places, and a park that people like to walk around and hang out near to where he lives. It's possible he stepped out with just a few dollars to run and get a snack or take a walk. As you may know, we were buried under 28' of snow here on Friday and there are still lots of places that have yet to be shoveled out.

    I'll keep my eyes open for him when I'm nearby where he lives. I'm hoping he hopped on some public transportation into NYC or Hoboken and waited out the storm in a train station or otherwise ended up in warm spot.

    This is so sad. So far there's no updates. There are home-made looking posters with his photo tacked on telephone poles and walls every few feet all the way down Central Avenue (the main retail district close to his home) for at least a mile, and I've spotted them other places around the city as well. His family and friends have been working very hard to get his picture out everywhere he may have gone in the hopes someone recognizes him and can help find him. My heart goes out to them. I hope he's located soon.

    He was last seen by his family wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt at the corner of Hague Street and Summit Avenue in the Jersey City Heights.

    Ortega, who is described as a light-skinned Hispanic male, left his wallet with his identification, credit cards and cash, as well as his car keys at home on the day of his disappearance.

    He does look kind-hearted and so handsome. Rest in peace, Michael.
