Still no trace of 92-year-old pastor

Still no trace of 92-year-old pastor

SALAMANCA, N.Y. (WIVB) - The mystery has deepened over a retired pastor who's been missing for a week in Allegany State Park.

New York State Park Police say the massive search for 92-year-old Thomas Hamilton will continue through Thursday. Hamilton's daughter claims she and her father got lost while hiking last Wednesday. She was able to eventually find help, but says her father was too weak to follow her.

Police say they haven't found a single trace of him since and are urging anyone who may have information to call 278-1777. More...

I wonder if they had dogs following his scent.

Does this man have a brother who is also a retired pastor?

My thoughts exactly 8:38...With as many people looking for him...Is he really even out there?

Perhaps I'm naive....but my heart bleeds for this daughter who had to leave her elderly father alone in the woods while she went on to find help for him and herself. You are all so ready to throw suspicion on her actions... and maybe you are correct... but maybe you are not! What would you have done in a similar situation? Would you have stayed there in the woods doing nothing, or would you also have gone on to try to get help? I am very concerned for the elderly gentleman, but I am also filled with compassion for the daughter, who, I am sure, will question her decision for the rest of her life as she grieves the loss of her father.

My prayers go out to the family but maybe...just maybe he was raptured...it wouldn't be the first time...or even the second. Elijah and Phillip come to mind. Just a thought.

What!?
The man wasn't magically raptured away unless you have some evidence to suggest this...

There is a LOT of forest out there, what is more likely?
-they just haven't found him yet
-divine intervention?

Seriously, if it were my family member out there I would want to have answers and closure, not speculation and superstition that only serves to put the focus away from finding the ACTUAL truth.

I'm not anti-religious. But it's in the same category of saying 'it's ok, they are with god now' in cases of tragic death.
It's not "ok", something terrible happened and we need to acknowledge that

We live earthly lives and if peace and answers can be found with earthly focus we should follow that and not defer to assumptions and speculations of divine action.

God be with the family and may he bring them the answers and peace they are so looking for.

God bless those that have made personal sacrifice to help find this an.
