I know I don't post much, but I am at wits end and am pleading for ya'lls assistance.
My parents left Houston due to the storm and were going to stay in a hotel in Arlington,TX. After 30 hours of travel, my mother and father are in seperate vehicles, they made it to Arlington only for my father to become seperated from my mom and essentially disappear. The info on my dad is as follows:
Name: Lester Williams
Age: 80
Vehicle: 2000-2002 White Toyota Tundra with Texas Prisoner of War liscense plates and Remax Associates magnetic stickers on both driver and passenger sides. Also there are some sticker (ribbon type) on his tailgate, one POW/MIA. I don't know his liscense plate number.

Last seen in Arlington Texas about 5 hours ago. His health is very poor and he is without the mediciation that he desperately needs. My mom has already contacted the Arlington PD and filed a missings persons report, and I have called hospitals in the area.
I blame myself for this because my wife, child and myself came to San Antonio, but my dad refused to come here because he does not like my inlaws, I should have forced the issue! My father has a cell phone, but the last time my mom talked to him he did not sound "right" and he is now not answering his phone, we believe his battery died and his phone charger is broken, once again I should have got him a new charger, but he said he does not need a charger in his car. I am such an idiot!!!!

If anyone sees him or this vehicle, please call me or Arlington PD. I can be reached at:
Mike Williams: 713-248-3152
or
Arlington PD: 817-274-4444 or 911 in Arlington.

Thank you for reading this and please pray for us.

Mike

Thank you guys for responding so quickly, my mom last saw him at I-20 and 360, turning off onto 360 going towards the airport. I don't know the area, but they were staying at the Sleep Inn on Six Flags Drive. My dad spent 27 years in the Army, POW in Korea (21 months) and 2 tours in 'Nam, this would be an incredibly shitty way for him to go out.
Most folks call him "Sarge"

He is a hell of a good man, I just pray for him to be all right, my mom is waiting for him at the hotel. If this is not resolved by tomorrow, I will be going there to I guess just drive around the Dallas area until I find him.

Thanks again,

Mike

UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!
First off thank ya'll for your concern, and I think it is now time to officially become a paying member. You guys are great!!.

Well my dad just called and all is well, I swear I want to kick his ass and give him a hug at the same time. He simply got lost, and his cell phone battery was dead. Now one would think that he would call me or mom from a pay phone, but.... at least my family is now intact. Thank you LORD, we have rode out this storm.

Thank you hound for personally calling me, I sincerely appreciate that.

God bless all.

Respectfully,

Mike Williams

PS. When I was going off, in a loving way, on my Dad a minute ago he said "Why were you worried, if Charlie could not kill me for all his efforts, Arlington Texas sure as hell won't" Got to love my Dad.

Good night ya'll

I read your initial post and then said a prayer for you and your family and when I was through kept scrolling down and saw the wonderful news! I am so happy for the safe return. My dad is 78 and I worry about him on the road all the time. I cannot imagine in the traffic we are seeing right now to have someone lost. God Bless.

That is awesome.

How was he found if you don't mind me asking? Police, ARFCOM, just called himself in?

Stopping in El Paso would probably have been far enough west to avoid the storm.
