    Is it just me, or is online news publication now the modern version of the milk carton? It seems someone is “missing” every week from SO. UT. no matter their age. I just find it incredibly puzzling that this happens so often around here. Perhaps we are just hearing about it more often in this digital news age.

    SO. UT is a major thoroughfare for interstate truckers, hopefully there isn’t any connection there, and if he ran away, that he finds himself.

      He’s gonna find himself picking himself off the pavement…..he’s gonna find himself picking himself up out of the gutter….he’s gonna find himself picking himself out of the dumpster…get home child! You spoiled little 16 yr old that didn’t get his way and ran away from home.,…get a job and get your own place….you are putting your mother through the closest thing to hell….get home! Your family loves you!

        Listen Zachary, a mother goes through many emotions at the same time when her child runs away. It’s anger, sadness, guilt, shame, and hope all at one time. A father goes through them too but maybe not all at once. So I’m not your mother but I am a mother and my previous post was anger because I’m angry at you for putting your family through this. I don’t have the other emotions because your not my son. But I know what I went through when my son ran away and I found him at a park all skin and bones. He left again but this time I told his friend- dude I don’t even care anymore if he comes back- hes not going to put me through this anymore and he came back that night and it’s been 7 years since then but he’s been to jail and rehab and we have a great relationship. Don’t you want a great relationship with your family? Then I say to your family- whatever your son is going through don’t give up but also don’t accept this. You have to go through the ride with him no matter how painful it is. Don’t stand for drugs- you stand against it.

        Don’t blame yourselves- he’s making the choice- he’s the only one to blame

        Did you hear that Zachary? Your choices are your consequences and you are the only one to blame. It’s not your parents fault.

        So get home!

    I think about Macin Smith often and like everyone else I wonder what happened to him. Where did he go. I think about his momma and his dad and siblings and just wonder where are you Macin.

    Contact your mom

    Zachary, it’s an awful world out there. Just contact your mom.
