Washington, DC

“Dear PoPville,

Passing this on, “Please lookout for my husband, missing with Alzheimer’s”

UPDATE 8am Friday, still missing after 13 1/2 hours. Thursday at 6:30pm, I was crossing the street with him at Massachusetts & North Capitol NW, near Irish Times and the main post office there, and he disappeared. He has Alzheimer’s. Police have been alerted but please keep a lookout. He is wearing the same coat as in photo and similar red plaid pajama pants. He may be carrying a red tote bag. He walks far so he could be anywhere by now.

Also, here is the link to MPD tweet.”


“Dear PoPville,

The potential areas where she would be most likely be seen are along Georgia Ave, Petworth, Brightwoood, Silver Spring, the area near Walter Reed campus or along the Red Line. Please call 911 if you see her.”


Thanks to all who messaged. From Nick’s father:

“My son Nick has has been forging his own path over the last 8 months or so, preferring to go solo, living in the Wash DC area. It’s been the toughest thing to let him work it out and come back into the family’s orbits.

However, I just learned yesterday that his world in DC, since arriving in May, has been anything other than pleasant. Nick’s friends say they have not heard from him since July 7. We are looking for him and are so very concerned. Working with authorities now.

If anyone has seen or heard from Nick, please let me know. If not, then please keep him and our family in your prayers. He is an amazing person; we love him very much and want him to be happy and safe.

Blaine and the Holt Family”
