Get the Word OUt

This gentleman is loved and missed by his family. His loved ones are using social media, among other resources, to get the word out about Stephen. His mom made a long post about him. His loved ones, realizing the stigma of mental illness, are humanising Stephen and stressing that he is not dangerous. Months ago, I covered a similar case where little effort was made to humanize the missing person or push awareness for him. And that person is still missing. (Below his story is linked) In Stephen’s case, his loved ones obviously love him and are worries about his safety. He needs to be located quickly.

Do you have any information or have you seen Stephen? If so, please contact the Joliet Police Department at (815) 724-3100 or call 9-1-1.
