I have a sone who is living in Kissimee, Doug York. He left to go on a bicycle trip across country 14 days ago he is in great shape rides between 50 and 150 miles a day. The last contact anyone had with him was 12 days ago, he told his mom he was going to spend the night in Okala forest, he had met some folks and in exchange for chopping wood for them they were going to give him a meal and he would spend the night with them. He said his phone was dying and he would charge it the next day. Nobody has heard from him since, and the phone has not been used since.
His name is doug York, shaves his head, lots of tattoos, 6.2 200 pounds, very fit. I am his father. We have contacted the police and got nowhere, if anyone knows anything, please contact me. My email is [email protected]

He left to make a cross country biking trip, with no money?? Is that what you're saying? Why else would he be needing to chop wood for food and a place to stay the night? And, in two days his phone needed charging, but couldn't find an outlet anywhere between Ohio and the Ocala forest, let alone before going into the Ocala forest? How old is this guy??? You called what police? State, county, city... which??

Last question: Anybody else see the couple or three 'writings on the wall' of this story?

Sounds like one of the RAINBOW kids to me.
A few months I gave a young couple a ridwe from Reddick to the Forest looking for the "gathering".
We finally found them near Lake Martin by a small pond. I dropped them there and haven't been back since. A friend told me to stay away from the "RAINBOW" people and that I was lucky I wasn't robbed by them. I have since seen many young people travelling toward the Forest either on bicycles on on foot. Most of them look like the sixties era hippies.
If your son is part of this group he's in dangerous company and circumstances.
Contact the Marion Cty. Sheriffs Dept. and inquire about him. They might search the current Rainbow locations in the forest.

What in the world could be bullsh!t about this father's plea for help?! Some people say the most idiotic things, just to see their brain farts in print!
