"Police are seeking information from the public as to Mr Thomson's whereabouts."

Is this the ending you are commenting on?

As for the ending of the guys' life......what is a good ending?
Ever on the search for a one ended stick.

I thought it was pretty obvious that the ending being referred to was the finding of the gentleman dead.

Well it's not good for the person who finds him but i often think that i'd rather die out there than in a hospital bed.
