Any Romanian members -- what happened to Raptor?

Serious question for any Romanian members that might still be active or lurking on here: Have any of y'all heard from Raptor? I'm seriously worried about the guy. His last post was the kind of thing that would have caused me to call 911 if I knew how to speak to emergency services in Romania, he deactivated Facebook, and his last activity on here was July 31, the day/time of his last post. He's obviously one of the most active members on the forum so a whole week of silence is weird.

Hope he's okay, but I kind of fear the worst.

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: extensive tempo (7 km) OR fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
wednesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10
- box jumps or ME SVJ 2x5
- squats 3x6-8 or weighted BSS/lunges 3x10/leg
- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- upper pull myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- leg raises, holds, pallof presses

He did do a similar thing a couple of months ago and came back...the recent job setback probably wouldn't help though. Hope he comes through.

This might sound weird but one thing I was hoping might happen for him since he started working is that he would save up money to get himself and his mother and sister out of Romania. He sounds like a talented programmer/IT guy and there's so much demand for those skills all over the world. A change of scenery could be life-altering for him.

Hey guys. I'm no expert in twitter but this would be Raptor's account no? With some recent activity too.
