    a "serious missing person"??? what is that? Like, this is not a joke, we're totally serious? Or he is serious? Or he is seriously missing? What an odd word to use to modify a missing person alert.

    That said, I hope he just wandered into some else's yard and is reunited with those who love and care for him soon. Detroit is no place for the weak.

    It sounds odd, to be sure, but I interpreted "serious" as being endangered. Older gentleman, not in good mental or physical health. Mr. Harvey needs to be found promptly.

    Do more than belong: participate.
    Do more than care: help.
    Do more than believe: practice.
    Do more than be fair: be kind.
    Do more than forgive: forget.
    Do more than dream: work.
