  1. Whenever I come on line
    I will check out Ernest lee Franklin if Targeted or if there any other news. So sad to lose a mom or dad really is😒my prayers go out to the family and friends of Franklin Lee πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’•πŸ’•

  2. I don’t know if this helps but years ago a guy matching this guys description and the car gave me and my boyfriend a ride home and all he talked about was that he was from Louisiana. That he owned property and houses there and had a lot of family there. The problem was the car was filled with stuff like he had been living in the car and he looked like he needed help, but he refused our help. He said he was meeting up with his sister and was on his way. We offered for him to come and shower and have some food before he left but he refused and I didn’t think about him until I saw this. I am in Utica New York and this was years ago. I would definitely check the nursing homes in this area as this individual appeared confused. I do remember that car though and he was quite proud of it.

  3. @Adventureswithpurpose here in Louisiana, our small back water slews and contributories, and canals are sometimes always anywhere from 5-25ft deep, so in Louisiana any body of water could be 10x deeper than what you think

  4. God Bless Amen πŸ™ β€οΈπŸ’™πŸ«‚πŸ’œπŸ€²πŸŒΈπŸ˜žπŸ€πŸ‘πŸ‘ΌπŸ˜’πŸ’›πŸŒΉπŸŒ·πŸ•ŠπŸ€²πŸ’œπŸ«‚πŸ’•πŸ˜‡πŸ™ŒπŸ’šπŸžπŸ’™β€οΈπŸ™πŸ’œπŸž

  5. Every time you show your sonar's I learn and something different. I'm on disability but I'm gonna try and send y'all something and buy merch when I can. I'm just fascinated with your work that u do. I'm going through and have been binge watching all your shows. I haven't heard nothing about Kansas but we are by Milford Lake largest one in kansas I know people drown here all the time and they had to move a cemetery to put in this lake I'm sure there is a ton of stuff underwater. Take Care God Bless.

  6. Just a thought, he said he was going to meet with a friend. Did he have any friends that had recently passed away? Keep up the great work gang. You are all awesome bringing these people back to their loved ones.

  7. We love you guys!! As a community we need to get other YouTubers to help get the word out about missing people (new and old cases). So many times when you show these videos no one has heard of these cases or people. If we can get global attention on some cases surely we can get national attention on all cases. Love and prayers!! ❀

  8. Love what you guys do. One thing to keep in mind when working these Southern states…in the winter if the roads freeze, we southerners do not have the appropriate tires and are not savvy with driving in those conditions. So, losing control of a vehicle is definitely an option. Just something you may find helpful in the future. God bless you for your hard work finding these families closure.

  9. Hey! I have a question about cases like this … as Doug mentioned towards the end there, there's no "x-factor" (no last known location, cell phone ping, or, general direction) … what I'm wondering is, if there isn't a way to approach the police to enquire about these things … it's a cold case, so, maybe they'd be willing to share those few details … stuff like, who was his friend he was going to visit (not that I want to know, but, it would have given you guys an address)? Did he make it there? Etc. Sadly, I think since, he obviously didn't see his son every day, his son wouldn't have known his regular movements (on a daily basis, like which roads did he normally drive down, who his friends were, where did they live, etc.). Perhaps if there were other family members present, who would have known the father, that might've helped.

  10. I pray that they find him Eric his son is in my prayers πŸ™πŸ½ ❀ERNEST I PRAY πŸ™πŸ½ YOUR FOUND
    #AWP YOU ARE A BLESSING πŸ™ŒπŸ½ πŸ™πŸ½ ✨

  11. Eric, if you read this, could you please make a missing person's profile on NameUs for your dad? That way web sleuths can ALSO help you find your dad. If you could, upload some really good, clear front-facing pictures of him.
