    Come on, John, be okay! I wonder how long he'd been receiving dialysis treatments? Does he usually go alone for treatments? I've got John in my prayers.

    J.J. and M. P.'s comments are alarming if true; infuriating if not. :confused:

    This link has a phone interview with John's wife. She gives info about his disappearance and clears up erroneous details. IMO, she has every right to be as upset as she is about HPD's response thus far. This isn't your average MP case. John has serious medical issues; more urgency and immediate action was absolutely required. Whachu say, HPD?!?:mad:

    Snipped

    ...last seen leaving the parking lot of Davita Dialysis on Almeda Road.
    ...to pick her up from Texas Children's Hospital
    ...staff members at the center said he never showed up for his appointment that day.
    ...asked HPD investigators to ping Jackson's phone for a location over the weekend, but she was told the detective assigned to this missing persons case is off until Monday. Jackson has congestive heart failure and his wife worries police are wasting valuable time.

    I've read the articles three times. Did he not show up for his dialysis at all that day? If not, why was he "seen" at Davita (parking lot???) but didn't have his treatment? If he DID have his dialysis and was not feeling well afterwards, the center should have kept him or transferred him to the hospital - certainly not released him.

    My late husband was on dialysis for 6 years. CHF often goes with the territory because of fluid build up. JJ is sadly in deep trouble if he is missing dialysis all this time, and yes, HPD has been neglectful. Prayers!

    I know someone who has to habe dialysis every tow days. Are there cases that you would only need it once a week? Is there hope?

    So he pulled into dialysis lot, decided he needed to go to the hospital, and then left to pick up his wife, presumably on the way to his hospital? Ill (or injured?) enough to skip dialysis and head to ER, but well enough to detour for his wife?

    Sadly, this makes sense if he wanted to avoid a pricey ambulance ride (perhaps he knew that if he asked dialysis center for help, he’d be sent to ER via ambulance). Picking up his wife also avoids hospital parking fees. JMO.

    I wonder if parking lots in the area (Hermann Park in particular) have been checked for John's truck. When I look at the routes he could have taken, that's the only thought that pops into my head. Unless, of course, he became disoriented and took an entirely different route. I agree - with the medical issues he has, this is urgent.

    Replying to myself, because I told a family member my theory and got the “are you serious?!” look. Apparently I neglected to consider that he may have suspected he had covid. This would explain not walking into dialysis, and would also explain wanting to drive in with his wife - if he has it, she probably does, too.

    Do we have any information about the husband/wife conversation?

    MOO.

    Houston man missing since Friday found dead, wife confirms

    FOUND DECEASED
    The wife of a man who was reported missing after he was last seen leaving a dialysis center Friday afternoon told ABC13 her husband was found dead inside of his truck.

    On Monday, John Jackson's wife, Donna, said her husband was found in his truck in the parking lot to Sprouts Farmers Market on Old Spanish Trail. Donna believes her husband may have suffered from a medical episode. She said the medical examiner's office told her they don't suspect foul play.

    It’s only about 3 miles from the dialysis center to where he was found at the farmer’s market.

    Such a sad outcome; prayers for his family.

    Interesting! The wife says that staff at the dialysis center spoke with John while he was sitting in his parked truck. Someone or some people from the staff went to the parking lot a second time, but he had already left. What's with the different stories? :confused:

    The interview at the link gives more information about John's disappearance. In the interview, John's wife explains (at about the 5:25 mark) that John arrived at the dialysis center but sat in his truck because he was very early for his 10am appointment. She thinks he took a nap. She talked to him by phone a few times that day until about 2:30-2:40pm. He told her he wasn't feeling well so she told him not to drive that he needed to get the ambulance to take him to his preferred hospital. She says someone from the dialysis center spoke with John outside. Apparently the employee went back into the building. About an hour or two later the employee went back to the parking lot. John and his truck were no longer there.
