    To all you negative people out there.....put your self in his parents/friend's/co-workers shoes. They must be gone out of there minds with worry and concern. I have been following Josh's story since it was first reported, I have no idea who he is, but I can tell by his friend's and co-workers posts that he is a decent young man. Think of it like this....I have no son's but I can empathize, he could be my son, brother, cousin or nephew. I pray nightly for his safe return and for his friends and family. May God keep you safe.

    I pray Josh is safe. He is a wonderful kid..yes, he is still a kid, he is only 20. I do know for a fact that he is a hard worker, holding down 2 jobs and at 1 of his jobs he is a co-worker of mine. He wouldnt just take off like some people have been saying..something isnt rite and when we find Josh, we well find out the truth. Come home Josh..we miss you!!

    I have not seen any info. on exactly where he got out of the cab & reportedly took off. "Stavanger / Blue Puttee are" is a pretty big area. If the police have that info. why dont they relaese it to help those still seraching? at least it would give a starting point.

    JP before you going making comments like; but someone needs to give him a hard kick in the seat of his pants for the trouble and worry he's caused if he's found alive and well," why don't you wait till the facts are out. Sounds like you don't even know the young man. I have known him since he was a toddler and everything about this is out of character for him. JP have you even stopped for a moment, read what is known to date and consider that he might have amnesia from the kick in the head he took??? Don't make judgements and speculate about things you don't know.

    To JP, " A hard kick in the seat of his pants"? The main objective of his family and friends efforts have, and will continue to be bringing Joshua home safe and sound. I had promised myself that I would make an attempt to refrain from responding to such comments but that would be the last thing we would want to do at that time upon locating him

    I understand why they combed the area where he was last seen because if he was injured he may have passed out down around there but …..He’s not there. If he is out wandering around, perhaps in a state of shock or whatever the case may be, where would he get food?

    I really hope that these sightings are accurate and that Josh is found safe and sound soon! If he is out there, we have no idea of what happened that night, or since for that matter, so we cannot speculate. Who knows what this young man has endured then and since then? People need to stop judging!! Please be found safe and sound today Josh!!

    If Josh Miller is alive and out and about, there's no way he could be ignorant to the fact that everyone including the police have spent a lot of time and money searching for him. I hope he's okay, but someone needs to give him a hard kick in the seat of his pants for the trouble and worry he's caused if he's found alive and well.

      Josh is not the type of person to not keep in touch. Like really? I just hope he's ok. Looks like you need a hard kick in the pants. There is a reason he is missing. You dont know what it is and nobody else does.

      You clearly don't know Josh. There is a reason we are all concered. Because he wouldn't do this to us all. I am praying he is alive and okay. But with that is an explanation. And we will all be willing to listen to him with no judgement and open arms to welcome our friend home.

      Are you always such a negative person? If you haven't helped with the search, then this is not affecting you & you should keep your negative comments to yourself. Maybe you're the one who needs a kick for being "ignorant".
