    This is a copy and paste of a comment that I put on the facebook page. I figured it may be better to put it here. “After reading the profile for Phil and noticing that the profile for him was temporary because no police report had been filed, I also noticed some comments by others that said “He is not missing, he left willingly” So, I decided to try to dig into this a little. I found his wife’s facebook page and she made a comment in response to a friend’s question about her trying to do a missing person report, but the police said they could not do one because he left willingly. I am not a smart man, but who determines when someone leaves willingly and how. If he does require medication to live (insulin) and did not take the medication with him, which means that without the medication he may get very ill and possibly even die, then why would anyone in the right frame of mind leave “willingly” knowing that they were ultimately possibly imposing a death sentence on themselves unless they knew that they planned to return in time to take/use that medication. Last I checked, there was not a form that people filled out that had a checkbox that said “I agree that I am leaving willingly”. Has anyone heard of coercion? Maybe he was coerced into leaving. Regardless, there are plenty of people that leave “willingly”. Sadly, another Veteran listed here who was later found deceased left his home “willingly” to go shopping and was later found deceased due to possible exposure to the elements. I had a friend’s daughter who went missing and after about a month when she was found, it was determined that she left “willingly”, but that did not lessen the heartache and pain the family felt hoping that she was found safe. In that case, a missing person report was filed. People leave “willingly” all the time and are never seen from or heard from again. I feel for the family of this person who left “willingly” and hope he is found safe. I think that the police should have done a report, but that is just me. So, everyone that that posts online about how Phil left “willingly” should sit back and think that if a family member leaves the house “willingly” and does not return and is not heard from for an extended period of time, are they not considered missing? Are those same people going to sit back and not try to file a police report and not search for their loved one because they left “willingly”? Just curious. Thanks for what you are doing with this page. The stories need to get out there. I understand that you have your rules about which vets get posted on the site, but I hope that the wife is ultimately able to find her husband or at least get a police report filed.”
