MP of the week: Walter Grant

This week’s featured missing person is Walter Sidney Grant, a 61-year-old Native American man who disappeared from Lincoln, Nebraska on October 17, 1992.

He was homeless at the time of his disappearance, and for that reason (and his age–he’d be in his late eighties now) I doubt he’s still alive. He had distinctive tattoos, and I hope if his body is located, he can be identified.

    Just want to say thank you, Meaghan, for maintaining this site. Reading this summary of Walter Grant’s disappearance made me realize,, again, how valuable your work is. Mr. Grant deserves a lot more than a NAMUS entry and a Charley Project entry, etc. He deserves to be found and cared for and treated with dignity. It is sad enough that we cannot do something so simple for people like Mr. Grant. He’s gone, no one knows where. Are we just supposed to abandon him, forget about him? That seems to be society’s answer. It’s a painful answer, but I guess there is not much else. Except for the work of dedicated people like you, there isn’t much else. The entries on Charleyproject give a measure of dignity to the lives it chronicles. And for this I am grateful.

      Thank you, Vincent! It’s nice to be appreciated.

      Someone cared about Walter enough to report him missing. I wonder if that person is still alive. He probably has kids, grandkids, maybe great grandkids by now.
