    A little more info might inspire interest.
    Did he borrow the car, did he steal it?
    Is he on medications?
    Job?

    This article says police are investigating the car being taken which to me means he didn't "borrow" it. Police Search for Missing Roane County Man

    I wish they’d tell us where the car was found in northern OH. Is it near an airport? At a Greyhound or Amtrak station? Did it look like someone else left it there...maybe a carjacking gone wrong or it was stolen? Were there personal items in the car...like he intended to go out of town? Was his wallet and/or ID in the car? The keys? This one has such little info, it’s hard to get a good read on what is going on. All jmo.

    Two out of the three local news broadcast mentioned him but nothing new.It sounds like he took it without asking but the whole story is vague.I'm not sure he lived in Spencer or was visiting and really strange no hint of where the vehicle was located.

    Idk why, but it seems we get very few details here in WV with missing persons. I’ve noticed it lately. It’s frustrating. Yes, all LE will hold back some details, but it seems WV barely tells us anything. That’s all JMO, of course.

    There’s still nothing new about John. There was a piece ran yesterday about it, but it was basically just the missing flyer. I’m not sure it’s msm, so I’m not posting the article. Where is John???

    I'm still trying to determine if he lived in Spencer or still in Richmond VA.I found some notices where he ran through tolls in VA 2017 that is it.

    hurherald is a great website.the guy who runs it is just a few miles up the road and if there was anything known but not in media we wouldn't have trouble posting it.Pretty sure he isn't msm though but an honest man.

    I wish they’d release some more info about him. What frame of mind was he in? Had anything traumatic or upsetting happened in his life recently? Did he tell his Mom where he was going (even if it wasn’t the truth)? There’s so many missing variables. Is there a bus line that runs close to where the car was abandoned? A train? An airport? Are there cameras in the area around the abandoned car? If so, did it show if he was the one who left the car there? So many questions.

    I don't like this it sounds like he fell on some tough times he couldn't cope with.CANNEAUT ends ohio and Lake Erie begins.
