    Gainesville PD seek public's help with missing man
    GAINESVILLE - The Gainesville Police Department is asking for the public's assistance in locating a man missing since June. According to Police Cpl. Kevin Holbrook, Ricky Eugene Blocker was last seen in the area of Skelton Road on June 7, 2014.

    "Blocker is of the transient community, which often times they do move from location to location and they are, often times, difficult for us to track down," said Holbrook. "However we do have witness information that says Mr. Blocker was involved in an altercation before his disappearance." Holbrook said the police learned about the fight after the 53-year-old's family reported him missing, a while after her was last seen in June. "We have followed up with his family, they have not had any contact with him in months as he was last seen on June 7, 2014," Holbrook said.
    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."

    Ricky is mentioned in this article published in November 2014 about a hearing of another Gainesville homeless man's court hearing. The article says Ricky had an altercation with him, as well, on January 11, 2013. No mention if Ricky's was ever found. I think he's being charged with crimes against Ricky, as well.
