LR Family Desperate to Find Missing Writer

Fearing for the life of her brother, Fay Brown couldn't help but cry when she thought about the possibilities. Tommy Calimee left their Little Rock home Thursday morning and hasn't been seen or heard from since.
LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Fearing for the life of her brother, Fay Brown couldn't help but cry when she thought about the possibilities.

"I'm trying not to think bad thoughts," she said.

Tommy Calimee left their Little Rock home Thursday morning and hasn't been seen or heard from since.

"If he leaves, he goes to the store and he comes right back," Brown said.  "This time he didn't ever come back.  So I don't know what to think."

Compounding Brown's worries: her brother is bipolar and diabetic and doesn't have any of his medications.

The sister showed us her brother's room Saturday afternoon.  His church clothes were still hanging.  His journals were still laid out. 

At 62, Calimee recently moved to Little Rock from California to be closer to her.

"He's a writer," she said.

Brown says her brother covered the civil rights movement.  A package pinned up on his wall had a return address for Coretta Scott King.

"Everywhere you look you see King," Brown said pointing to magazine cut outs and pictures on his wall.

She says her brother loved to tell stories of times past.  Now, with him missing, she worries she'll never hear the stories again.

"That's what I'm scared is wrong with him... he went into a diabetic coma somewhere," she said.

Brown says they filed a police report about her missing brother on Thursday but so far they haven't heard anything.  The home he went missing from is near the intersection of MLK and Roosevelt southwest of downtown.
