What a horrible situation, and given the level of criminal activity we see daily, it's difficult to not think the worst, of which there could be numerous permutations.

Hoping for a positive and happy ending for the family. In my thoughts. 
Never hesitate to take that ride. Ride safe, ride often and ride far. The soul demands it.

All men die, but not all men live......

I hope he gets found safe, lost rather than missing. I wonder why the post says he is very vulnerable?

Not sure but divorce, loss of spouse or cancer comes to mind. It may be that he is on medication. People can do silly things this time of the year.

Yeah I pray they find him safely.


As much fun as it is, riding alone remains risky (I presume he was riding alone).  Especially in SA!
Always best to have a riding partner.

What does she mean "he is very vulnerable" ?

That also worried me - odd choice of words.

Really hope it works out and he is okay.

Curious to know if this was yesterday or Sunday though - the posted messages don't seem to indicate this.

My first thought was depression.

I truly hope he turns up somewhere, well and unharmed.

He suffers from depression and his younger brother passed away about 1 month ago from a heart attack.

Apparently he has been found, but I think it is not good news as the message just asked for privacy for the family.
Not nice.

I am happy to hear he has been found. With regards to giving his family some privacy please do so, especially if it was depression , having to answer to all and sundry after a incident like this just adds alot more pressure to the person suffering from depression as well as their family. Which really doesn't make things easier.

I hope he is alive, well and reunited with his family who obviously cares greatly for him. :thumleft:
