    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."

    From your link los:

    "Tuesday night, a hunter contacted the sheriff about a picture he caught on a game camera. Sheriff Singleton said it appears to be the 51-year-old, tattered from days in thick woods."

    “This is not too awfully far from where he lived,” explained Singleton. “So we felt obviously compelled we needed to check it out. So our posse came out this morning and they rode the woods.

    "The Posse said the woods were so thick in places, they lost track of one another."

    "According to Singleton, they were unable to find any sign of Childers, but added the picture at least gives them something to move forward with."

    Not found, but there were promissing signs and in the end, they found somebody else, not yet known whom.

    From that link:

    A resident spotted a man and a mounted posse located him in the woods near his home– The Sheriff’s investigators believed it was him because he was found in expected area.

    The man who IS NOT Childers is being transported to Eliza Coffee Memorial Hospital for evaluation and treatment. Sheriff Singleton said this man was found barefooted, but in good condition.
    This is amazing. Why would someone else be out there barefoot? I wonder if he knows the missing man?

    AL - Shawn Childers, 51, Lauderdale County, 17 September 2016

    Shawn Childers still missing after 6 months

    It’s been six months since Shawn Childers walked out of his Lauderdale County home and disappeared.

    His roommate and investigators all say he hasn't been seen nor heard from since. His story is one we were following even before he vanished.

    On the night of September 17th, Shawn’s roommate, David Nix, says Shawn simply walked away, and vanished. "And he was dressed up, you know, in his dress clothes, had tears just rolling down his face, and he just grabbed me right here and hugged me, said I love you, said I don't know when I'll see you again, and stepped down right off the steps right here and started walking north right here into the dark," said Nix.

    *Note: Hidden game camera photo of man initially believed to be Shawn Childers.
    Investigators now say they know who this man is, and he is not Childers.

    Skeletal remains were found in MS near the Lee/Itawamba county line (northeast MS). They are just now sending them to the lab, but they're estimating that they've been there over a month to a year.
