    If this is the wrong area, feel free to move it, but how sad and scary. I didn't see it anywhere else...




    John Hasting, if that really is his name, can't remember anything about his life before early August.
    He's pretty sure his name is John Hasting, and he thinks he's 20 years old.
    He's been staying at Crisis Ministries' shelter on Meeting Street in Charleston since Aug. 15.
    Jeff Yungman, the shelter's clinical director, said Charlie Ball, the director of Friendship Place in Georgetown, brought Hasting to the shelter hoping he'd have access to more services.
    Friendship Place, at the St. Cyprian Outreach Center, is a Georgetown program that helps the area's homeless residents. Hasting stayed at Friendship Place from Aug. 8 until he was brought to Charleston, Yungman said.
    Hasting is white and about 5 feet 11 inches tall. He has light brown hair and blue eyes. He has a hearing problem and a speech impediment.
    He also has a scar, possibly from surgery, on the underside of his upper left arm.
    Hasting said he vaguely remembers feeling ill one day in early August. He sat down on a Georgetown sidewalk and thinks he fell asleep. When he woke up, he said, it was dark. He got up and started walking around town.
    "It was kind of like I had no emotions," Hasting said.
    He had no wallet, no identification and just $3 in his pocket.
    Eventually, he said, he walked into the Georgetown Ice House gas station and convenience store.
    “He came in the store early on a Sunday morning, Aug. 6,” Ginger Haley said. She works at the Ice House and Georgetown One Hour Photo. “He didn’t say anything. He just was in here.”
    Hasting was wearing shorts and a pair of worn tennis or athletic shoes. He was not wearing a shirt.
    Haley spoke with him, offering to help. When he asked if she had any jobs, she said no.

    I can't understand the police not helping him, a detective or someone that can search the databases of the missing. Who knows who this guy is and how long he has been missing. I found several potential matches up to the scar, none mentiont he scar...do they always?? How bout the speech impediment and the hearing prob.....for those of you who are into the searching so much the missing, are these things that would surely be on searches, what do you use to 'for sure' rule a potential match in or out?

    Christine I am with you. My first thought was were is his picture? I would think it would be vital to get it out.

    That was my thought in posting here too. I don't know if he didn't want pictures posted. It certainly didn't say that in the story but it is sure hard to be of much help at all without a face. I am not geographically anywhere near that area and thought that maybe some of you closer could pick up the torch. Certainly there is a relative somewhere, distant or otherwise, maybe a former neighbor, someone who would recognize this poor kid.

    It seems like they could at least run his fingerprints through to see if there is a match in the system.
