Abington Man Still Missing, Family ‘Devastated’

By Christina Hager, WBZ-TV

ABINGTON (CBS) — Abington police are putting out a plea for information about a man who’s been missing since Wednesday.

60-year-old Stephen Hender was last seen at the garage where he works in Boston Wednesday. Two days later police found his car parked near Island Grove Park. They searched the park and pond on the property, but found no sign of Hender.

WBZ-TV’s Christina Hager reports.

They are especially concerned about the man’s type 1 diabetes. “If his insulin were to drop too low, he could go into diabetic shock,” explains Cynthia Caron, who heads up a New Hampshire-based agency called LostNMissing Inc. She and others with her group came to Abington Sunday to spread the word and distribute flyers showing Hender’s picture.

Caron says his family is devastated. “They’re very, very worried as the days go on. The roller coaster of emotions, they’re a very close-knit family.”

    As a sufferer of Type 1 Diabetes I am fully aware of what low insulin levels can do to you. One symptom is being very confused and feeling like everything is “fuzzy, also your eyesight is affected, so please take the advice by Cynthia Caron seriously and check your property fully if you live in this area. Best wishes to the family, I hope Mr. Hender is located soon.

    Broadcast Decency Act ..whatever happened to the First Amendment, quote:Congress shall make no law rsecepting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or ABRIDGING the FREEDOM OF SPEECH, or OF THE PRESS; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.emphasis is mine.But bush has been stacking the us supreme court with reactionary judges each time he gets a chance. Wait for it, there will be an assault on Roe v Wade and even maybe an assault on the time-honored criminal staple, Miranda v Arizona.However, Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad/Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad Company should be safe. This older one, a favorite of Bush’s big business mates in tobacco and other places, extends constitutional protections once presumed apply only to natural persons to corporations as well effectively in tobacco’s case barring the govt from making laws that prohibit tobacco advertising.never mind that tobacco consumption is related to far more death and disabiltiy than illegal drugs, yet they have an extraordinary assault on relatively harmless illegal drugs.
