Paragould Family's Prayers For Safe Return Of Missing Loved One Answered

December 15, 2004 -- Posted at 10:30 p.m. CST, updated at 3:31 p.m. CST on 12/16 

PARAGOULD -- "He had told me he wanted to run to Wal-Mart to get some razor blades.  I expected him back, but I haven't seen him since,"said Kent.

Kay Kent clutches to a picture of her husband of 45 years.

Charles Kent has been missing now more than 40 hours.

"It's real hard when you don't have a clue where someone you love is. Whether he's okay, whether he is hurt, whether someone has hurt him. Whether he is lost, and can't find his way back,"said Kent's daughter, Kathy Prince.

"Charles Kent is on extremely strong prescription medication that his family says completely alters his mind, but seemed o-k when he left for the store.

"It has just distorted his thinking, and that is one reason we are so scared. We don't know if he can even find his way home,"said Prince.

"Marriage is til' death us do part, for better or worse. I would go anywhere and do anything for him. I love him,"said Kent.

Holiday plans are being put on hold this year, as Charles Kent's family prays for his return.

"He's not dead. I know he's not dead. God has given me assurance, he's not dead, he's not dead.....I know that,"said Kent.

K8 News is happy to report that members of the Kent family informed us this afternoon that Charles Kent was found safely in Indiana, and is receiving medical treatment in a hospital there.
