I'm sorry to put this on here like this. My name is Jeremiah Lang. My friend Charles Wolf has not been online on any of the ways we normally communicate and play games and the like. I met him when he attended MTSU about 10 years ago. I regrettably have little knowledge of his personal information. If you could, please post a picture of him on here so that our friends who are in a similar situation as me can confirm if this is him or now. We are all rather worried and would like to know for certain.
