    Please have the Police release as much information as possible, sketches, car description…there are MANY fathers like me who will be glad to look out for this creep and spend some time with him before the police arrest him!

      Maybe that’s why there’s no description. Lynch parties are so ugly, especially if you got the wrong guy. Seriously, though, I agree with your comment 100%. It’s hard to help find a short tall, old young, black white, skinny fat guy.
