    Parents of missing Kalamazoo Co. teen pray for his safe return

    The parents of a missing Kalamazoo County teenager are sending a message tonight, hoping he'll come home safe.
    "He lost a wrestling coach just a few weeks ago, and that broke his heart because he mentored him since he was 5 years old," Mike's mother Shelby Gurd said.
    Michael jumped out of a truck at West Main and Drake around 6:30 Tuesday night, and took off running. He hasn't been seen since.
    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."

    More from the initial link:

    Mike's mother Shelby Gurd says this year has been hard for him, and after a recent suicide attempt, she fears the worst.

    "He lost a wrestling coach just a few weeks ago, and that broke his heart because he mentored him since he was 5 years old," she said.

    Tuesday night, Mike's father Jeffrey Gurd says they were driving together and got into an argument about friends coming over to visit, and Mike jumped out of the moving truck.

    "Took off running across the parking lot with no shoes on, and rounded the corner where the old Godfather's Pizza used to be, and it was the last time we've seen him," he said.
    And here it says he was just released from the hospital after a suicide attempt. He must have really been determined because the truck was moving when jumped from it. The parents must feel helpless and devastated.
