How sad that he wasn't reported missing on the day they realized he was gone! Why would a facility taking care of mentally disabled people wait 2 days before reporting this man missing? Sounds like somebody dropped the ball on this! Did I miss something? Ammarilla House is supposed to 'care' for these people right?

Right. You're reading it all correctly. 2 days before he was reported missing and SEVEN before the family was notified. And the Ammarilla House, which is a state run facility (that you and I are paying to run) is taking no responsibility. It's a sad situation that we hope no other family has to go through.

ok for one its not a state run facility and have to wait over 24 hours to report a missing person report. cops were called and they did do anything about it. The ammarilla house isnt a lock down facility and has no control over the residents that live there they are free to come and go that is why it called a boarding and lodging facility and not a instution. and the staff that is there do care for these people like they are family. past employer there have always insisted that employee should care about residents. But that doesnt stop anyone from believing that these people are just like your own family. Yes it is sad that the family of duane procott lost him. And there wasnt a day that went by that staff and people in the area didnt pray that hed be found ok.
