Is it just me or are "missing person reports" on the rise here in the Capital Region? Let's hope this trend doesn't continue.

Months ago it was Shaker teacher Meghan Marohn, more recently Schenectady teen Samantha Humphrey, and now this - a man from Rensselaer County who police say has been missing for weeks - his car left abandoned on the side of the road.

By no means are we suggesting that any of these cases are related because they're not - we're just hoping for some closure or information like we had with Meghan Marohn and hope to have with Samantha.
