    NC - Danny Atkins, 63, Tabor City, 19 January 2015

    Police in two states trying to find man missing since early last week
    TABOR CITY - Police on both sides of the state line and the CUE Center for Missing Persons are seeking help from the public in the search for a Longs, South Carolina man last seen in Tabor City last week, Lt. Greg Sibbett of the Tabor City Police Department said Friday.
    Officials with the Wilmington-based CUE Center are assisting law enforcement in the search for Danny Atkins, Sibbett said.
    Atkins, 63, was last seen on N.C. 904 near Food Lion about mid-morning Tuesday, Jan. 20, Sibbett said. He was first noticed in Tabor City on the afternoon of Jan. 19, when his white Toyota Tacoma apparently became disabled.
    Witnesses said they saw two men helping Atkins push the truck out of the roadway at the corner of N.C. 904 and Complex Street, just outside the town limits.
    "We would like to talk to the men who were helping push the truck," Sibbett said. "They may can give us some idea as to Mr. Atkins' state of mind or his condition."
    Other witnesses have reported seeing Atkins in or around the Food Lion, Sibbett said.
    Atkins has "health issues that may cause him to become disoriented," Lt. Raul Denis of the Horry County (South Carolina) Police Department said in a news release Thursday.
    Atkins was reported missing by his brother on Jan. 22, the same day the Toyota was impounded by the Columbus County Sheriff's Office. Atkins's vehicle was found on Hickman Road in Tabor City, North Carolina on Thursday, January 22.
    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."

    A little new info about his life.

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.

    “We just wonder now if he got in a car (and) took a ride with the wrong person or if in fact he's okay and could be out there in a hospital somewhere,” said Monica Caison of the CUE Center for Missing Persons. Atkins' credit and debit cards haven't been used, and calls to his cell phone go directly to voicemail, according to Caison. Atkins was last known to be wearing a brown jacket, coral colored shirt, blue jeans and black tennis shoes. He is 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs about 225 pounds. He has brown eyes, brown hair and is balding.

    Caison urged people in the Tabor City area to search sheds, barns and other outbuildings, where Atkins may have gone.

    Danny Atkins was seen by Tabor City residents near his vehicle and had even gotten help to push it off to the roadside, and then was seen again walking along the road to a nearby Food Lion store.

    But those were the last times he was seen.

    A North Carolina Silver Alert said Atkins was believed to be suffering from dementia or another cognitive impairment.

    Caison speculated that Atkins got lost during “an episode” and perhaps ran out of gas...

    Atkins' credit and debit cards haven't been used, and calls to his cell phone go directly to voicemail, according to Caison.
