Well Known Milwaukee Homeless Mans Whereabouts???

I have become quite concerned I haven't seen him since the end of December and I am fearing something bad has happened. I think his name is Teddy and he is all man. If you work or live in Downtown Milwaukee you have undoubtedly seen this tall, dark, and mysterious specimen. His normal stomping grounds are right downtown smack-dab in the thick of it where he'll usually chill out at the Grand Avenue mall or sip a morning joe at Red Arrow Park Starbucks. He's an African American man, around 55-60 years of age, and rocks a grey beard. He is usually sporting khaki pants, yet I wouldn't put it past him to have invested in some denim dungarees by now. He wears a black knit hat to keep that noggin of his warm and his winter jacket is a dark blue w/ brown fur around the trim of the hood. Don't be surprised if that hood is pulled up over his head to generate some added warmth in these cold winter months! If you are at all familiar with downtown you most likely have seen him. From a distance he can look quite intimidating and your first reaction may be to steer clear of this man. But let's be serious for a moment here because looks can be deceiving. Rest assured he never begs, borrows, or steals for he is a man of principle and he enjoys nothing more than keeping to himself. That's not to say that if one was to show him a Benjamin or two he wouldn't oblige....but let's be honest, nowadays who wouldn't like a little extra bread in their pocket you know what I'm saying? The bottom line is he is a very nice man and I am very concerned. It has been a couple months since I have seen him and I'm just worried that something malicious might of happened to him. I am truly hoping that this is not the case and all of this monkey business will come to an end soon and our beloved Freddie??? will be walking amongst us again! If anyone knows anything about him or has seen him in the flesh, I would be overwhelmed with joy if an update of his predicament could be forwarded. I would be in your debt forever. Thanks
