    About 8 months ago, I meant a great guy by the name of Zach (who is the only person in this story who is NOT a part of Realjock.com) Zach introduced me to LJ (known as Wannamuscle here on RJ). LJ is from South Africa, was just coming out of the closet, having trouble with religious issues, yadda, yadda, yadda.... The 3 of us became great friends via e-mail, IM's, and most recently, the phone. Meanwhile, LJ met Jorn (known as Milkanussini here on RJ) and the two them hit it off.... so much so, that LJ was flying out to Columbus OH (yesterday) to meet his potential love interest (Jorn); and then the two of them were going to fly to NYC NEXT week, where Zach and I would have a chance to meet them, and the four of us could hang out together.

    LJ arrived in NYC last night, and apparently called Zach a couple of times (but Zach was at work, and did not have his phone on)... the first time he said his flight was cancelled, and he won't be able to catch another flight out to OH till Sunday... Could he please have a place to stay? The second call said don't worry about it, he found someplace. The THIRD time he called, I was on the phone with Zach, and by the time he cut over, the two of them had been disconnected. It turns out he borrowed the phone from a stranger in the street, and by the time Zach called the number back, LJ had disappeared... and now neither one of us have heard from him since. I'm actually flying in to NYC next Friday from Indianapolis, so I'm feeling extremely helpless at the moment; and Zach is having no luck finding him. This is worriesome because a.) this is his first time here in America, he's young, and a little bit naive... and I'm scared to death of what may have happened to him and b.) because it's not like him to not try everything he can to get in touch with at least one of us (even a friend of his from South Africa thinks this is totally unlike LJ, and is worried as well)

    Meanwhile, I sent an e-mail to his love interest BEFORE all of this happened, asking when LJ was supposed to get into town, and just making sure he arrived safely... and Jorn READ my e-mail, but then completely ignored it.... and he has not been on RJ since. I have no clue what Jorn's last name is, or why he's ignoring my e-mails; but right now I'm asking two things: Look at both of their photos here on RJ (which may not work for LJ since I just realized he has a faceless shot... dammit... I've chatted with him several times on webcam, btw, so I do know that he is at least very real, and not a fake)... but look at Jorn especially (Milkanussini ) and if you recognize him, or know of a way to get in touch with him other than RJ, please let me know.... I just want to make sure LJ is safe, and doing well!

    What a labyrinth of human interaction. Any 13 year old girl would applaud that opening statement, OP!
    It's online, people come and go all the time. No real way to keep proper tabs on them, I'm afraid.

    A bit too early to start getting worried.

    He doesn't have a phone. That should explain it. The next time he calls, get a location.

    Both do exist - try doing a profile search (left hand side of the screen) and not just a generic (upper right hand corner) search.

    As for the missing person, it might be a little early to say whether he's actually missing. LJ is 31, which isn't THAT young. He's a big guy. I'm sure he can take care of himself. Maybe he and Jorn had a fight or something? Give it a couple of days. If he's still missing then panic.

    Umm, a 12 year old knows how to be safe online... and SA is a much scarier place than the US... not that i'm against it. if something came up, he's either dead or ignoring you. one of the two. icon_eek.gif

    Thanks for THAT happy thought, KyleAD... LOL Sorry if everyone thinks I'm over reacting. Yes, he's 31, but he's also just now coming to terms with his sexuality (thus the reason I said he's still a little bit naive about a few things). If he is sowing his wild oats, GREAT! Good for him... I just hope nothing happens to him in the process. As was suggested by many, all I can do right now is wait; and see what happens....

    Finally heard back from LJ today via e-mail... no explanation, just that he was fine, and looking forward to meeting us next week. As for Jorn, who knows... I'm just glad that LJ is not laying dead in a ditch somewhere...
