Jim McPhee Is Missing

It may seem strange that my second post is about something that doesn't have to do with the book.

But it is definitely weird, it happened in Colorado, and I have to do my part to publicize it.

Jim McPhee is the husband of my husband's cousin. A week ago today, Jim was running some errands. His last known activity was a trip to the public library to turn in some DVDs. He and his car have not been seen since.

Jim is 34, the husband of Jessica, father of two small children, one of them a 2-month-old infant. He has a steady job as a school bus driver that he very much enjoys. He's a sharp, intelligent, humorous, decent guy.

He did not discuss doing any travel in the near future. His passport is still at home. There is no activity shown on his bank account. He did not take so much as a sweater with him. He has no cell phone, and no GPS device in his car. He has no history of mental health problems, criminal activity, addictions, or known enemies.

The local police have opened an investigation. The story of Jim's disappearance, with a photo, is here:

Jim is a white man, about 160 lbs. and 5'8," with short brown hair receding at the temples and a short reddish beard with a goatee. He has green eyes, a panther tattoo on his upper left arm, and a British accent.

He drives a black minivan, a 1998 Chrysler Town & Country, Colorado license plate number 523NZX.

Anyone with information can contact Boulder, Colorado, police at 303-441-3333 or Northern Colorado Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. Tips also can also be submitted to the Crime Stoppers web site at

His family desperately misses Jim. Your positive thoughts, good vibes and prayers for his safe return will be much appreciated.
