Hentz has a son in Middletown, Pa., where police found him on a street after midnight Wednesday, Fawbush said. He was examined at Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, Pa., and released, according to the hospital. Hentz lives alone in a retirement apartment in Clinton, about 30 miles north of Salt Lake City. A daughter reported him missing Monday around 2 p.m. MDT.
"We received information from the family he may be seeking transportation back to Pennsylvania, where he's from," Fawbush said. "We had checked bus depots, airports. Pretty much nothing as far as leads and tips." Fawbush said he had no other details on Hentz' cross-country journey. Police in Middletown, Pa., did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
"Nice people? A truck driver? We don't know how he did it," Fawbush said.
May, 59, earned a degree in physics at Imperial College London but after years of studying interplanetary dust, he abandoned work towards his doctorate when Queen took off.
His interest in the subject was reignited when he co-authored "Bang! The Complete History of the Universe", which tells the story of the universe from the big bang through its subsequent evolution, and was released last year.
"For the last nine months, I've done nothing except slave over my PhD, which is now written up, thank God," May reportedly told students at a ceremony at Exeter University in southwest Britain when he received an honorary doctorate.
"But there are times when you really want to give up. There are times when you go, 'Why on earth did I take this on?'"
May worked on the PhD between 1971 and 1974, and kept all his hand-written notes on the subject through the years, finally discovering them in his loft recently.
"People are aware he is here and there is a feeling it is pretty cool that he has come back to finish his PhD, even if he has not been hugely visible," Abigail Smith, a spokeswoman for Imperial College, was quoted as saying by The Times.
The rocker will receive his PhD next May, assuming his thesis is approved by supervisors.
My top five Mountain songs:
1. "Nantucket Sleighride"-this is a perfect song especially with the opening "Taunta's Tune"
2. "Mississippi Queen"-the soundtrack to that 14th summer
3."Never In My Life"-wham bam blam thank you ma'am (We need more cowbell)
4."For Yasgur's Farm"-their reflections on their Woodstock performance
5."Theme From An Imaginary Western"-just one of my faves from the farm
I am addicted to these "World's Most Shocking" crap that comes on Court TV. I just saw "Worlds Most Shocking Dangerous Drivers 3" and watched the whole damn thing. Mind candy...uh wait more like mind cotton candy.
I am getting where I hate the Baseball All Star Game. Joe Buck is grating on me for some reason ( I think he comes across as a smart ass) and Tim McCarver is a constant yak machine. The home run derby was fun, but I am sooo tired of..."back, back ,back ,back, back..it's gone". Can we think of something else? How long is it going to be until one of those kids on the field gets really hurt? Who was the clown with the Tshirt that was spray painted with the advertisement for the barber shop? One last thing...it's the bottom of the ninth, bases loaded, two out and you DON'T have Albert Pujols come up to bat? WTF? Vladimir Guerrero, you have been playing in the major leagues for over a decade and you STILL don't know any English? Just an effort would be nice.
I love my country very much but I just don't understand why we invaded Iraq. This war may be the undoing of the republic. I hope it doesn't happen but I feel a major revolt coming. And we get news today that Al-Queda is now as strong as it was before 9/11. Wait a minute..what the hell have we been doing then? I thought the idea was to fight them over there so we don't have to fight them here. If they attack us here, they won't be messing around, that's for sure. If they do attack us, will W pull the martial law card and suspend the constitution? It doesn't look good kids.
I was listening to Rush gasbag today and he reported that one of the republican senators said that those who oppose the president's "war' policy are "wimps". Then Rush said.."I like that, we're dealing with facts, here". Hey Rush, did you serve? Do you have friends who have kids serving over there? Of course not. It's OK as long as it's not you, huh? Sorry friends, I just get tired of the "chicken hawks" like Dick "I had other commitments"Cheney lining the pockets of the Haliburton investors while hurling invectives and slurs at the people who don't go along with this headlong race into the inferno. As long as I live, I never thought that I would long for Nixon again. These guys make Nixon look like a saint. Is this the best we can do? This is the best government money can buy. And it has. Where oh where is Teddy Roosevelt or Harry Truman when we need them the most?
A couple of the guys I play basketball with are people that I admire. Pat is 74 and Jules is 77. Both of them hit shots this morning. I just hope to be walking at 74. God bless em.
Sorry for the rant, it has been a good day with me closing some deals and doing a great presentation.
