    31 Years have passed...

    Robert has been missing for over 31 years now.

    The circumstances of this case, involving him leaving the institution during a Blizzard - and the length of time that he has been missing with no word - seem to indicate that he could have died of exposure somewhere near Newberry, Michigan.

    There have been no comments or updates to this case since it was posted in 2006. Has anyone heard or seen anything on it?
