“A lot of times what will happen is a police officer will see the missing person sitting out somewhere or driving erratically,” Joe Harn told the Dallas County news. “We’ll check ‘em out and sure enough it’s our missing person. A few years ago we found someone who’d been missing for 24 hours up in Oklahoma. In this case, up in Denton County, there was a guy who saw him Friday. He actually talked to him and said he was asking his way to Garland. But the guy didn’t realize [Ticknor] was missing until Sunday,” when he called police.
Ticknor, who stands 5-foot-11 and weighs 170, was last seen wearing a long-sleeve khaki shirt and gray slacks. If you see him call Garland police.
