    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."

    North Carolina's Highway Patrol's Aviation Unit assisted in searching for Sky Porter today. link above.
    I must have missed something but I didn't see why he is considered endangered. I will read through again before bed....hoping he is found safe by then.

    Their Crimestoppers page has an interactive map of the area. Very woodsy area. I wonder if he is from there or is a visitor?

    I have searched for FB pages using the aliases, and can't find anything. Maybe someone else can give it a try. I also think it's strange that the page I found is new and with so few friends. And, LisaWL7TR, I did find that post concerning. Also, random thoughts:

    - I know the area fairly well. The words "On Beech Mountain" sound like he was last seen on the ski slopes or at least at the ski resort. I think that's why there's a mention of using helicopters to search. According to Beech Mountain's website, the last day of the season was to have been yesterday. It's been kinda warm, so I'm not 100% sure if they were actually still open on the 20th.

    - This article says that he was last seen around 5pm Monday "on Beech Mountain," and police put out a notice on Thursday. I wonder who reported him missing... It's awful quiet.

    Found alive !

    From the Beech Mountain Police Department FB Page:

    "**UPDATE TO MISSING PERSON**
    Sky Porter was found this morning at about 8:15 am by a bystander who saw him in a parking area and recognized him from the news media and flyers. The bystander called 911 and Mr. Porter is now receiving medical attention." (BBM)

    Confirmed by a MSM report:

    "UPDATE: Police have located a man that was reported missing out of Beech Mountain, NC. The High Country Crime Stoppers alert has been cancelled."
