Friends, I write you today with sad news.
It has come to my attention that Jacob Thomas Einstein was reported missing from his Milwaukee residence on Tuesday, June 17. As a former teacher and concerned friend, I wanted to ask you all if you have any information as to his whereabouts. The Milwaukee police department is in the midst of a full investigation, and any information could be vital in bringing this case to a happy resolution.
I am also compelled to state the following: It is my opinion that Mr. Einstein is in the midst of a full-fledged crisis of identity. You have read his posts here, so I expect that you can see this for yourselves. He has suffered a total break with reality, and is no longer able to distinguish between fact and fantasy. The time-travel makes for an amusing story, and may at first seem harmless. But my interactions with Jacob have given me every reason to think that he actually believes these stories to be true. It is my deepest regret that I did not do more to reach out to him while he was still willing and able to communicate with me. Now I can only hope for his safe return home, and his eventual recovery from this sad condition.
Once again, I urge you to come forward if you have any information about Jacob’s whereabouts. His family is extremely distraught, and would deeply appreciate the cooperation.
Thank you all for your time.
