    I apologize for not being as present as I should be on here, but with a new baby things are obviously hectic in the household.  That said, we now have a more urgent matter on our hands..

    My brother has been missing since April 1st.  If there are any members in the Guelph, Ontario area please keep your eyes out for him.  More info in the link below.  

    Thank you

    I guess we can make an exception and keep it out of the basement.

    Bump.

    #11 2 years ago

    Oh man, good luck with the search Brock, hope he turns up!

    #12 2 years ago

    Good luck. Hope he turns up safe and sound.

    #15 2 years ago

    Thanks gang.. a group of 20 police officers and K9 units were out today. Nothing turned up yet, but I'll keep everyone posted.

    Thamks again for the well wishes amd support.

    #16 2 years ago

    Best of luck. I have some friends in Windsor, ON that are fairly active in the community. I'll let them know and see if they can get the word out locally.

    #17 2 years ago

    Bump. Any further updates on the situation?

    #18 2 years ago

    Can't imagine how tough this is for you right now. So sorry, hope he returns home safe n sound.

    #19 2 years ago

    Still nothing.. ugh. We're all a mess up here right now

    sorry you are not having any luck.

    Any backstory or people/groups you may want to reach out to for more help in finding him?
    What hobbies does he have? Where does he spend his free time? Drugs or other things that may have caused him to wander off or go into hiding?

    Have you been able to hack his social media to get ideas of what was going on or where he has been hanging out?

    just trying to brainstorm some ideas that may help you.

    good luck and keep thiking positive!

    Biggest thing I have seen a lot of people overlook with missing persons is that if he had an iPhone and "Find my iPhone" on, you can log onto any computer and search for the device. This does require you to know his AppleID/icloud password but you can guess as many times as you want with no lockout type security... Even if the device is off, it could report the "last known location".

    Even if he no longer has the device, whomever does now may be involved.

    We JUST had this happen with an employee and we tracked down the device and contacted the authorities with the address where it was last seen by iCloud to pursue legal action.

    Any further news on this?

    #23 2 years ago

    Still nothing.. just met with the detective yesterday

    #24 2 years ago

    We're now over a month with next to no leads... life at home has been pretty hectic, but the support off and online has been spectacular. I want to thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.

    After some careful consideration, my wife and I have decided to take my other young brother under our wing so that he does not lead down the same path as my missing brother. It's been a week so far but we're making some great progress with him, all while still dealing with the Guelph police in the search for my brother Cody.

    That said, I need to raise some funds to help my brother with his fresh start.. new clothes, school supplies to finish his highschool deploma, food money, etc. He's going to be helping me push out my products faster until he finds a job of his own. So I ask if any pinsiders were on the fence with any of my products, now would be the most helpful time of all. I'm offering all my shooter rods at $55 usd shipped, with the majority of the proceeds in this sale going towards helping my brother get back on his feet. I feel I've lost one brother, I can't bare to lose another.

    Once again, thank you to all for your patience, generosity and support. The pinball community truly is a great one indeed.

    #25 2 years ago

    Sorry to hear that the search didn't lead to any clear resolution. Good to hear that you've taken your other brother in and I'm willing to help you out with that. I'll place an order for some shooter rods this evening.

    #26 2 years ago

    Good luck with the search. Our prayers are with you!

    #27 2 years ago

    Sorry to hear about your brother.
    I went to your store but my AV is blocking it as a dangerous site. Any idea why?

    I apologize, my website is severely out of date. If you want to see a more update list of my shooters, see the pics here:

    When ordering, simply send payment via PayPal to sales@pinballcustoms.com with a list of shooters in the notes.

    Thanks to all for your ongoing support with this.. it's been an emotional rollercoaster.

    #31 2 years ago

    Got some frightening news this morning. The outlook on my missing brother at this point is... not good. Will post when I know more from the detective on the case.

    Thanks again for all the support.

    #32 2 years ago

    I was really hoping for some good news, sorry to hear this.

    #33 2 years ago

    Man Brock, my heart goes out to you and your family. May God Bless all of you right now and know you have pinheads from around the world pulling for you.

    #38 2 years ago

    Cool, well I may get one for GB then. I usually get my shooters from ModFather since he is my bud... But I'd like to help out and get a cool shooter in the process ... Won't put my business on here but I'll just say I can sympathize with wanting to help a sibling

    #39 2 years ago

    Thanks gang, I appreciate all the kind words here and via PM. Between the missing brother, the troubled brother now living with us and the new baby ... well it's been pretty stressful here at home.

    Our thanks go out to each and every one of you .

    #40 2 years ago

    Up

    Big sale in full force for my little bro. He's been great helping me with orders this week.

    Thanks all

    Sins eh? I thought they were born after wedlock :p

    #43 2 years ago

    err sons.. but sins works too. Hah

    The little ones are working on Freddy gloves

    #44 2 years ago

    Hi!

    Is it how much for a shooter rod with shipping to Finland (= in EU)? Thanks for the info!

    #45 2 years ago

    Hi, the $55usd includes shipping to worldwode locations, however it does not include tracking outside North America. If tracking is required, price for shipping jumps to $45 -- insane I know, but it's the reality of Canadian shipping. If still wanting tracking, I'd suggest buying more than one shooter to make the additional shipping charge worth it.

    #47 2 years ago

    Hope everything turns out well Brock.

    It's nice to see the family working together.

    #48 2 years ago

    Agreed... Ditto

    I think you have a typo here ??

    I'm in for a GB shooter just waiting to see your third design
