Jasper, TX ~ As the search for Alfred Wright continues, new information has come to light that makes it all the more urgent that members of the community continue in their united efforts to locate him.
Alfred, "Alfie" to those who know him, is a well respected and loved member of his town. He is a graduate of the University of Tennessee with a degree in physical therapy and a father of three young children serving his community as a Physical Therapist.
There is a strong possibility that Alfie may have been using a new synthetic stimulant termed as "bath salts" for an energy boost as he carried out his day to day tasks. Bath salts are similar to amphetamines in that they cause stimulant effects much like an energy pill however many sources cite hallucinations, extreme paranoia and delusions as potential negative side effects. Bath salts were legal in Texas until September of last year.
On the day that he went missing Mr. Wright was having troubles with his truck and his last call was to his wife, giving her detailed directions concerning where he was so that someone could come and pick him up. While waiting it is possible that he had partaken in this synthetic drug and may have had a negative reaction leading to his being seen leaving the area on foot.
Private Investigator Chuck Foreman says "It is crucial that the search for Alfie continue. This is a member of the community who may be disoriented or lost and needing help. With the temperature being low as a cold front moves through the potential for hypothermia is also a major concern."
Mr. Wright is in peak physical condition but the public's help is needed to locate him as Mr. Foreman points out the weather concerns and the fact that a negative reaction to this synthetic stimulant has the potential to last for days.
Alfie's family needs him to be home and to know he is safe. The community is being called upon to continue with efforts to locate this resident who may be in need of immediate assistance.
Anyone with information or who is willing to assist in the search today is urged to contact Private Investigator Chuck Foreman of CFSI International at 512-644-9856.
