I have a cell number for him. A recorded message says "the person you're trying to reach is not accepting phone calls at this time."

I've never gotten that message before on anyone. You can set your phone to outgoing only? Disconnect sounds different.

He did tell me before he just keeps it in a briefcase, not with him, so maybe it's emergency only or something.

I would guess a PM Is about the best way to reach him at this point.

He sounds to be a senior citizen based on his posts.



5 or 6 years ago he said he was 72,
that makes him late 70's now. He
says he's hugely obese, can barely
walk 10 feet and has runaway
diabetes that he refused to treat
with a proper diet.

I have reached that message on a friends phone before. It was a prepaid phone and he didn't have any minutes left. I think his carrier was net10. I think at one point he had an Obama phone and I got the same message.

Flea has no money, they take
everything he has every month
at the facility where he lives.
He can't afford anything other
than prepaid, probably can't
even afford that.

He also faces the danger of being eaten by feral cats.

does anyone know his name to check some obits. Still hoping he just doesnt have internet access. Considering his prior medical conditions it doesn't seem likely that he is just away.

I would say he's either in a hospital,
or worse. It's been 10 days and after
a post where he's told to get his
affairs in order. In the old days
a doc would just stop talking about
your health and talk about the weather.
That's when you knew he had given
up on you.
