    Snipped...
    ...Someone claiming to be Ratcliff reached out to Hopper on a Facebook post about the disappearance. Hopper has not had any further contact with that person, and has passed that information on to police.

    "He has the biggest smile," ***** Ratcliff said.

    I guess it might be a long shot that he's involved in this car that the driver can't find? This on craigslist, Florida plates:

    He was at Hotel Vegas in Austin. There is water nearby. Ugh.

    SXSW is huge - so it would be hard to say where all he might have gone. The week long event is bedlam with crowds, but they tend to be very peaceful musicloving crowds. Lady Bird Lake (the Colorado river) does run through downtown Austin.

    I'm thinking he'll turn up - did he have anything pressing to get back to in Mississippi?

    [Jason's] friends were out at the the Hotel Vegas, a music venue on East 6th Street. When they wanted to leave Ratcliff said he wasn't ready and decided to stay behind with a group he just met.

    "They got home, they saw that Jason's phone was plugged in and his clothes were there and that was the last thing that was heard from him."

    He disappeared without his cell phone or a change of clothes.

    Thank goodness.

    Something is very fishy with this report. He goes missing and doesn't know everyone is looking for him? He then is found in a homeless shelter? He says he is doing the Lord's work at the shelter. I don't buy it for a minute. I hope to see his friends or family confirm he is in fact safe.

    What part sounds fishy? His friends and family on facebook appear to 100% believe it.

    Seems the most likely explanation, actually, to me. Kind of wandered off in a psychotic fugue pretty much.

    That's great, he just needs to work on his people skills.

    He said he went to the homeless shelter to do "God's work" and help the homeless. That's just not true.

    No I don't but when you've studied over 200 cases of similar missing men you know what makes sense and what doesn't. This one doesn't make sense. I hope to get details however.
