how about posting a picture of this man?

And since someone publicly listed the drugs this person is taking should they not first do a Google search for HIPAA and or PHI?

It depends who provided the information. A doctor or hospital wouldn't be allowed to release PHI (such as the medications taken by a patient) to the media, but the patient's father/legal guardian isn't bound by Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, which is intended to regulate the actions of healthcare providers.

@John Rider - you are correct. NCPD did not provide a photo. We reached out to the family, who provided the photo above.

Wow went to school with Ian. I pray for his safe returns

I am staying at a FEMA hotel with another who is displaced from Long Beach, down the block from this location. We will keep an eye out in the streets for him.

He was a nice kid growing up, and a good athlete. I had no idea of his struggles. I hope he is found and this has a happy ending for Ian and his family.

I heard yesterday that this young man is home and ok.

PS...There IS a photo posted.
Jonathan Kaplan December 04, 2012 at 08:30 AM
Thanks Taurus, hopefully that news is accurate can anyone with a real name confirm this?
Taurus December 04, 2012 at 04:53 PM
Was told by a friend who knows the mother. Can't imagine it is not accurate...perhaps it can be confirmed by the LB police department or by an update by Mr Kellard.
