I heard this on the radio as I was packing up to leave work tonight. I was speechless. My reaction was not unique. By the time I arrived home the news was on 73 sites around the Internet.
Alec Cooke was reported missing today.
He was last seen at 4 p.m. Tuesday leaving his Waialua home to go surfing on the North Shore. His truck was found early Wednesday in the parking lot of Saints Peter and Paul Mission near Waimea Bay. His dog and keys were still inside.
