It seems that the mother of Terrence Lyles had been trying to use Facebook to push awareness for her missing son. But the social media site gave her a hard time. On August 18, 2017, she posted about it. It must have been an agonizing ten days as she wrote this. According to her poster for her son, he is said to constantly walk and pace. The poster (shown below) also states that Lyles is mentally unstable and not to approach him if you spot him. In fact, this seems to be a good principle if you believe you are sighting any missing person.

Now the time has come and I need the assistance of you all. This is my son and he is missing. Please share and thanks.
