He was found in philly but I wonder why? Drugs maybe? Girl?
Parent February 28, 2013 at 12:34 PM
The reason doesn't matter! As long as he's coming home safe & sound. If he needs help, I'm sure his family will be there for him every step of the way, and its no one else's business.
Karin February 28, 2013 at 03:21 PM
Thank God he is safe!!! I'm sure many people have been praying for his safety & well being. Let's continue to do so. To those who are wondering where he was, does it really matter? So many people care about Chris. That's what matters.
Parent February 28, 2013 at 04:23 PM
Where Chris was is not the issue. Lets all Thank God that he is safe and well. This story could of had a much more horrific end. So happy it did not. God bless the King family.

Be nice to know...all those that keep saying "thats not your business"...yeah well, him not coming home wasn't our business either, but no one minded us sharing info then
concerned citizen February 28, 2013 at 07:47 PM
yes it does matter to where he was and what he was doing cause if it wasn no big deal then why would you bother posting the story of him being missing. So as of now it is our bussiness and we want to know the excuse for disapearing and making people look for him. So lets not say it isnt our buisness when clearly it is- Alex pierson

PhillyBurbs reported that a neighbor of the King's saw Chris in Philadelphia and brought him home. No other details were given, and I haven't been able to get in touch with the family to learn more. Here's a link to PB's article: http://www.phillyburbs.com/my_town/hamptons/missing-middletown-man-found-alive-safe/article_cfedd0cb-dfea-5b31-aaa9-c55fd6099192.html

I am not trying to get into anyone's business , what's most important is that this young man is back home. My problem is if there is an explanation as to why he was in Philly for days without putting too much detail I feel like it should be out there. Reason I say this is cause I don't know if he was kidnapped, drugged, brainwashed or if maybe he has a personal problem maybe drugs and that's why. I am In no way judging him in fact I hope it was drugs that took him there and that he will get the help he needs. The other things I mentioned me scares me much more considering I live within 15 mins of him. Either way I pray for him and his family.

Please stop and think about what you are saying. There is nothing that gives anyone outside the family the right to intrude. Say a prayer of thanksgiving for them and move on.

Glad he is home safe. For those of you that insist on knowing where he was have obviously never had anything tragic happen to you and need to find something more productive to do. Volunteer somewhere. Sending prayers to the family and leave them alone. They post it in the media to look for help finding him, not for you you idiots to judge them.

People are nosey. Just glad he is home safe and sound!

A nineteen year old is legally able to come and go as they wish so why was he considered "missing" in the first place?
