Hello friends, After months of absolutely no news regarding either DS or YS, we received troubling information from another relative who made contact with YS over the weekend via text. This relative (who has mental illness issues as well) reached out to W and said that YS in particular was unstable and making threats - nothing specific was disclosed by the relative - and that "personal safety" was potentially something we all needed to be concerned about. Again, nothing specific was disclosed. W isn't sure how much credence to give this relative's account. I am of the opinion that given all of the history, this is serious enough that authorities need to be involved, including the police in both YS' town and our own. (We live about an hour apart which is a blessing, because it is a deterrent to him.) W is stunned, I think, and not sure what to do, and I am struggling with how involved I should be at this point. If either my or W's personal safety is at risk, even if it's a very small risk, I feel it's prudent to take protective action. I also want YS to get the help he so obviously needs. It would be very difficult if not impossible for YS to access our home. I would be more concerned that he would lie in wait outside, or that he would ambush W at her work. I am less concerned that I would be his target, although I do think the chances of that are higher than zero at this point. W did call F to let him know about these developments and F was planning to discuss it with YS. I encouraged W to also notify YS' therapists. I don't know that she will. Any feedback welcome.
