    IL - Dennis Bates, 57, Tolono, 4 May 2016 *Arrests*

    l hope l did this right. Dennis is missing from my small town.

    http://www.news-gazette.com/news/loc...olono-man.html

    The article does not mention that Dennis is disabled. Also, there has been a RUMOR that a man and possibly a woman stole his truck and debit card.

    l am really hoping he is found safe and soon. Before l moved across town, Dennis always had a smile and "hello" for me every morning when l checked the mail.

    Dennis Bates, 57, was reported missing a short time after 4pm Wednesday. He's listed at 4'11", 100 pounds, and owns a dark green 1993 Chevrolet S10 pickup.

    Police say Bates in not believed to be driving the pickup, but ask for help in locating him.

    You're welcome Thanks for bringing Dennis's case here.

    From the article I linked, it doesn't come out and say it directly, but it supports what you've heard that someone else may be driving his truck since they don't think he is.

    l can't find it in MSM, so RUMOR has it that police have video of a black male and white female in his truck using his debit card at an ATM.

    Unfortunately, it seems like there's a good possibility that foul play was involved. If so, I hope they're arrested soon before they can hurt anyone else.

    Rest in peace Dennis. Condolences to Dennis's family and friends.

    Eric Wycoff, 45, of rural Marshall and Karla Kelly, 44, of Paris made court appearances Friday in Clark County, where each was charged with possession of a stolen vehicle and concealment of a homicidal death.
