My little brother, Andy, has gone missing during a trip from his former home in Pittsburgh, PA through Virginia, Georgia, and Kansas (to visit friends and family) and finally ending up here in Albuquerque. He left Pittsburgh on April 29th and checked in regularly until May 5th and we have not heard from him since. His intention was to spend his Birthday in Kansas with our Mom, but he did not show and has not contacted anyone in the family. As you can imagine, Mom is fit to be tied and I am getting a little worried. For you Hun Farm attendees last July, Andy was with me enjoying the Hun's hospitality. He is a 6 year veteran of the US Army serving as a Bradley driver and then as an MP in Virginia until an injury incurred while arresting a criminal cut his service short. Andy is 28 years old, 6'2", 180#, light brown hair with blue eyes. He is driving a 1998 Ford Ranger, red in color, 2 wheel drive single cab pickup. I am working on getting the license number, but he has bright yellow New Mexico plates. If anyone here is in the south-eastern US, please keep your eyes peeled for my brother. I would really appreciate it. I am hoping that he hooked up with a hottie and is 'exploring' the possiblities and I am praying that no harm has befallen him. Please help with prayer and any other ideas. Thanks, Matt [b] Andy (my brother) is a veteran and receives a disability check every month from the Army. This check is direct deposited and if we can find the bank his check is deposited into in PA, we can track his movements via his ATM card useage. Does anyone here know of a way I can get in touch with the Army to find where that check is direct deposited? Thanks in advance. [/b] We found the little asshead! He is in Winchester VA at a friends house. It seems that he lost the charger to his phone and I guess forgot how to dial a frickin' phone. There also seems to be a chicky snack involved. I will be kicking his ass as soon as I can get my hands on him. Thanks to my brothers here for the thoughts, prayers, ideas and work. I will not forget what you guys mean to me.

Got any pics of the truck and or him ? Does the truck have a cab or bumber stickers ? Have you put in a missing person report ? Can you check his credit card or bank accounts? This stuff isnt hard to get if you can get into his home. Credit card usage should give you a clue on were he is or going is he buying for two. Pretend you are him and call the CC company.

Call the media. Seems like they like to run the hell out of missing persons stories. It could be the exposure you need to find him.

IM or email me with his plate #, name and address. I'll get him BOLO'ed in southwest VA.

Pic would really help out. I can hand it out to some LEO's here in central Texas and maybe something will come of it. You and your family are in the prayers, so stay strong and POSITIVE. If I can be of assistance to you, don't hesitate to ask.

I am working on the pictures and trying to get the New Mexico Dept of Motor Vehicles to release his plate number. I am also working on getting the VIN for his truck. We are trying to track down his personal info so I can track his ATM useage. That was a great idea by the way. We are trying to track down anything that may be on the wire regarding his truck or him. Keep your eyes peeled and keep up the great ideas!

Does he have a cell phone? If he does, couldn't his service provider at least tell you the city where his phone was last used. I am in Atlanta and will keep an eye on this thread for more info, and an eye out for your brother. I wish him a speedy and safe return. ARH

If you get his license or plate info and think he might be in the Dakotas, IM me and I'll see about putting an Attempt to Locate in the state system.

Probably isn't the Army you need to get in touch with, rather the VA. Contact your local DAV and they might be able to help you with some kind of info.

I'd think our VA contingency would be able to administer the rubber hose whipping for you in your stead. Glad to hear he has been found.
