    It’s a shame how they searched for this man and had his poor girlfriend hand cuffed for what could have been hours. And after all the searching they never found this man. Did they know what he looked like? Did they know what he was wearing? Are they still looking for him? Or was it just tax payers money being wasted? What’s going on with this investigation? Does anyone know??
