Manhattan Woman Seeking Help In Finding Husband

Associated Press - September 19, 2013 7:44 am

An assistant professor at Kansas State University is asking for the public’s help to locate her husband, who hasn’t been seen since Sept. 2.

Kelly Welch, with the university’s Department of Family Studies and Human Services, posted on Twitter Tuesday night that her husband, Dave Welch, has not had his medication and might be suffering from dementia.

He was driving a maroon 2000 Pontiac Montana with the Kansas tag number 577 FLR when he was last seen.

Riley County Officer Matthew Droge says police determined Dave Welch was not a crime victim and he had not done anything illegal by leaving. His name has been added to a national law enforcement database for missing people.

We are dealing with a college professor and she does not report him missing in over 2 weeks? What is wrong with this picture?

Actually, his wife contacted the police on Sept 3rd, and an official police report was filed Sept 6th. At this point they are reaching out for the public’s help, since the police haven’t been able to find him. I hope he’s safe.

Maybe you should get KSAL to hire you as a reporter since you gave more info in a couple of sentences then the whole story they printed.

I see freedom of speech does not apply on here once again. I wonder if the FCC can do something about that. I will put it another way. Look at the track record of professers at K-State with spouces and court records.
