    Hello I am the founder of Textwich on Facebook. We find missing people by feeding the homeless who in turn look at missing person flyers. Today I had a food truck go to skid row in los Angeles. We assembled a wall of missing person flyers for the lunch recipients to look at while they are in line. They in turn give us tips on people that look familiar. GUESS WHAT? SEVERAL PEOPLE KNOW HIM. He was last sighted at 6th and town. he is very under weight but OK. We had a team immediately deploy but we couldn’t find him. We will go back on wed. To look again. Please visit my Facebook page Textwich volunteers to see pics of our event. And contact me through textwich.org for any questions.
