    He did not file a response to whatever was going on in his professional life. This kind of thing you don’t want to ignore.
    Eta: We’re sorry Bob that the stress got to you.

    I have met Bob, we went to college together. He was in the same fraternity as my now husband. We have had many drinks together over the years. He did moved back to Ohio, but I would usually see him at the fraternity alumni holiday party and other events like weddings over the years. One year we had the holiday party at my house. Bob has been to my house!

    I have been living vicariously through Bob and all his travels this past year. I remember when I saw his first post about Jamaica. He was there for so long, I thought he wasn’t coming back, but he did. I really miss seeing his posts. I check daily for updates and nothing.

    I would like to have another drink Bob and talk about the crazy things we did in college.

    I have met Bob and I hope to see him again soon! <3

    I never realized until lately just how many people are missing in State Parks.

    I think it is very important. Maybe he knew pretty much how the decision would go and couldn't handle losing his ability to practice law. jmo

    Those who had contact with him in last few weeks may know more. It reminds me of the line from the Office space movie. "Bob, I've noticed you've been missing a lot of work lately!" Bob replies, "Oh, I wouldn't say I've been missing it.'

    @thazzy WELCOME!

    Good to hear from someone who is familiar with RQ.

    Hoping for a good outcome here....it’s been so long now.

    Thanks! I have been a member for many years, but mostly just followed cases. Bob is the first person I know to have gone missing.

    I keep asking, but everyone seems to have all the same questions...

    I would be interested to know what case he was defending when he walked up to the magistrate in the hallway and quit. That sounds like intense disillusionment to me, either because he couldn't stand seeing the kids he was defending getting unfair punishment over and over again, or opposite, getting sick of defending drug dealers or violent offenders who didn't respect him. Perhaps when he went into law, he envisioned doing something else, or his worldview changed and he felt the legal system was too corrupt to be involved with anymore (this is just the vibe I get from him). I don't think he cares about the disbarment. Is there any other repercussion such as financial or was it just his license at stake? I hope he has disappeared to start over and wish him the best. He very likely had the resources and connections to pull it off.

    No one is speculating about the big "D". Depression. The mass of men live lives of quiet desperation. The house they had lived in was foreclosed on in 2019. He moved in with Dad and continued to work. (Mom died a few years ago. It still bothered him.) He's working but for what? What's the point? The court could find someone else to handle his cases. He walked away. He went to Jamaica. When his money ran out, he came back. Then, every couple of days he'd walk through a different park State Park. It was cheap, and he didn't have to answer to anyone. He'd come back home and sleep. One day, he decided to go further than usual. He would drive 5 hours to TN. Why? Why not? Then, he started walking. Why? Why not.? They searched the park property, but he didn't stay on park property. Why would he care? Someday they'll find his remains and try to make sense of it. It won't make sense. He took the road not taken.

    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
    And sorry I could not travel both
    And be one traveler, long I stood
    And looked down one as far as I could
    To where it bent in the undergrowth;

    Then took the other, as just as fair,
    And having perhaps the better claim,
    Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
    Though as for that the passing there
    Had worn them really about the same,

    And both that morning equally lay
    In leaves no step had trodden black.
    Oh, I kept the first for another day!
    Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
    I doubted if I should ever come back.

    I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.

    First read it when I was in elementary school, and has been my favorite poem ever since.

    Thank you. It would help if TBI would issue a statement. Clues? Did someone report seeing him? e.g. hiking, walking, walking along a road, hitch-hiking, loitering, etc. They're sure making it hard on us would be websleuths.

    I realize this may not solve the mystery of where RQ is, but I noticed Cummins Falls is one of the few sites where the trails have been surveyed for Google Streetview. So you can zoom in and see what the trails in the park look like at ground level, or at least what they looked like in March 2016. It seems to have been done through a project called Google Trekker where someone carries a 40 lb. backpack equipped with a Google 360 degree camera along the trails.

    There's a promotional video here of how they did it. I think it includes a few brief snips of Cummins Falls trails.


    Among other things, it gives you a sense of how limited the park space is. Along one section of river there's a wooden fence opposite the park. The park location is not in an extensive wilderness area. It's largely bordered by roads and farms.

    In fact, until we know what happened, we won't know how to classify the Bob Qucsai story. Is going into the 'wild' and disappearing a thing? (OK, maybe Cummins Falls isn't 'the wild', but maybe it is 'wild enough' if you're hell bent on the devil's mission?) I mean, if depressed people think similarly, then maybe depressed people do similar things. It's like the joke, "you're unique, just like everyone else." While we all like to think we are masters of our own destiny, observed from afar, humans look much like ants scurrying about. Are there patterns, but we don't look for them because we don't like what they reveal? It seems getting lost in the wild as a means of leaving this existence is a thing. The Cold Vanish: Seeking The Missing In North America’s Wildlands . I hope that's not the case here. (Oh, by the way, cell phone records might be useless. I saw one hiker's account that they had no T-mobile service once they started on the hike. So, cell phone records may not tell anymore than we know, i.e. at 1:30 pm he arrived at the park, and he never returned to his car.

    I believe the dog belongs to his father and lives with his father and not him, he just takes him with him from time to time when hiking. IMO

    I just followed up yesterday to see if there was any a new information, leads or anything on Bob. The response was “No news or anything. Trust me, if I ever find out anything I will share.
