There is a picture of him in The Logan Banner Web site, go to their search engine, type in his name, there will be two articles that shows, click on the one that says Silver Hair alert, I think I know the man you are talking about at Wal Mart and if so, it is not the same one, was the one who sold you the knife about 6 feet tall? The one I know of, is always selling knives , says he needs gas money, but then I see him at gas station , buying lottery tickets

I have know Lowell about all my life, His brothers and sisters has all pasted away, and he had just a few friends that he trusted. He lived his whole life in Chapmanville. I just hope he is found safe and get the help that he needs. Wish I lived close and could have helped him. Pray he is found alive.

To the people at the VFW that saw him. Did he have warm clothes on? What date was that and about what time of day? Has the garbage dump been checked since they said he could have been mugged. Don't want to think that, but he still missing. Hoping someone took him in and taking care of him.

Unfortunately, the guy you ran into was a con artist. He's been selling knives and bumming money for years now.
As a matter of fact, in 2001, while working in Logan, I was approached by him as well. He asked me to buy a knife from him, to help with gas money. He told me he had made it from Kentucky, to Logan.....but still needed to get to Madison.
Soon after I found out this game has been going on for years. My Grandma told it dates back to the 80's, maybe even before.
So yeah, he's made a living with this "knife gig".....and doing pretty well if you ask me, because he walks WalMart's parking lot too! Just searching for someone to buy into his story, and wehn he's got enough cash, he returns to his vehicle, and rides off into the sunset! ;)
Crazy, huh?!

On the subject of the missing man.......

I truly hope he's found. It's so sad knowing he's out there, in the cold.

Abra, I think I know who you're talking about..If it's who I am thinking he lives on Corridor G between Madison and Chapmanville.. He did have a sign in front of his house that read "Fresh housewater for sale" Everybody calls him Jabo. Is the guy you're talking about really tall a slim?

Lowell lived down from Godby Branch on the River bank. I remember him when he worked for Frank Porteras a machinic at his gas station where Rich is now located.
Lowell loved to fly planes, he had one hangered at a large field nere his home.
I remember him flying his plane at high altitude over Chapmanville, he would cut the engine and spiral toward earth, he then would restart the engine and come out of the spin.
I once asked him why he did not still have his plane, he said it was cheaper to go to the Logan airport and rent one than to keep and maintain one.
Lowell was a kind and thoughful gentleman, like Ted Brown, some of us will miss him, we still have Frog.
George Yeager was also an avid flyer, he lost his license when he flew under the old Chapmanville bridge.

He asked me many times.I once saw him at Long John Silvers and he took every fork,spoon,knife,napkin and anything he could get...There was Nothing left there. He's something else..I really hope the old guy from C-ville is okay too.:)

<quoted text> Hey guys, the man you guys are talking about is Jabo Peyton. I'm laughing so hard I can hardly type this. I worked at Superamerica back in the 80's and he would come in and take all the napkins and creamers and anything else he could get. He would ask us for the used coffee grounds because he used them to make coffee so he didn't have to buy coffee. He would also ask us if he could have a few bags because he "needed them real bad" He was a trip for sure. He was always asking people on the lot for money and trying to sell a knife. He would get like $2.08 in gas at a time but would get gas several times a day and every time he stopped for gas he would take all the napkins and stuff. People always told us that he was retired from the mines and had a good income and had been tight as the bark on a tree his entire life and never spent a dime he didn't have to. I haven't seen him in years. LMAO just hearing that he is still out selling a knife and doing the same ol tricks. He would have to be up in years now and still trying to make a buck. LOL
Yep..That's him..I was gonna put his last name but I already got a warning for putting personal info on topix..Once he asked me for a cigarette and I started to get it out and he said can I have 2..He put them in his pocket and I said do you need a light and he said No I don't smoke but I gonna take them home to my son..lol..Last time I saw him was at Kroger's and he asked me for money to buy a chicken for supper..That was about a year ago..He's still at it.. Your story is a good one..I 've heard lots of people's storys about him..

Who do you think you are to judge people on Topix? Angie everyone knows you are bubba/big bubba hutton. Just a few names you think you can fool people on. You really are pathetic and not funny. Angie Lowe do you see many people responding to you? No. You wanna know why? Because everyone knows who you are and the liar you are. You need to go to a nuthouse. I'm glad I moved away from nutcases long ago like you. I find it so funny you think he's a con man because he took cream and sugar from a food place. That's a theif. Not a con man. Big difference dumbass.
You have some comprehension problems..I never said he was a con man..That was Abra.... I'm not Angie Lowe!I'm glad you moved away too! Peace out BIATCH!!!!!!!!!!

Do you know how many threads I see you on even? Dozens. You come on here and the Chapmanvillie Topix and now you are bullying ppl and their families on the vacallive california topix. I think you need locked up. That's just me. What gives you the right to judge? Everyone knows you are a pillhead. I'm in Charleston living a happy life. I feel sorry for you because you pretend to be different people and everyone knows in Logan you have no friends. My tracker says in the last 24 hours what people do. It shows you been on five other threads . It seems like you still don't learn a lesson. You are still a pussy . Still hiding out in hotels? lol. I heard lastyear you ran because you had stolen money from people. Stupid is as stupid does. I feel sorry for you in a way. The way of thinking you need to not be out on the streets or allowed by a computer. Everyone knows you are Angie Lowe on the Chapmanvillie Topix. Stop lying. Bye.

I have no clue who Angie is and that is no concern of mine.I wouldn't know Angie if she was setting here beside me I commented on a post I thought was humorous. You need to find you something to occupy your time and stop trolling. You comment everywhere that Angie is a troll and nobody likes her. Well from what I read it's you that is a troublemaker and I sure as hell don't like you.
You don't need to appologize to me..She's insane..I'm not Angie Lowe.She wouldn't know me if I wa sitting besise her either.She has made a point to follow me around an aggravate the Shit out of me for 2 years..Now she's found her way to a forum in California to harass Kevin for awhile..I hope the slowtarded Bytch gets lost while there..I would bet her family would feel the same!
