GOP Rep. Steve Bulloch says he has found a man by the name of Mark Thomas who helped his wife recover from a mysterious illness.
Bulloch, R-Iowa, told reporters Wednesday that he met Thomas in the weeks after her husband disappeared in 2016.
Bullock told reporters the man had a history of mental health issues and he called the couple from a rural Iowa town.
Bullocking said he called Thomas for a phone call and he answered.
Bullon said he said, “I’m going to help you out” and he went into detail.
He said he asked him to put the phone down, but he said Thomas got up and went to the bedroom.
Bullocks said he went to his office to get a cup of coffee and he sat down with Thomas.
“I told him that he was a good man, he was working hard, and I’m just going to make sure he is doing well,” Bulloch said.
“And he did.”
Bulloch described Thomas as a hardworking, hard-working man.
Thomas told Bulloch that he did not know who he was and he didn’t remember what he did.
“It was a very emotional conversation,” Bullock said.
Bullson said he told Thomas that he didn’ t know where he was going or what was happening and he did the best he could.
Bullowitz said that Thomas told him the next day he was gone. “
Bulloch added that Thomas said he wanted to take his wife to the hospital, but she was not there when they left.
Bullowitz said that Thomas told him the next day he was gone.
He asked him why he left his wife behind and Thomas told the congressman that he had no choice.
Bulloins statement was posted on Twitter and was later shared on Facebook and YouTube.
He called Thomas’ disappearance “a very difficult time for my family and me.”
Bullock, who is also the chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, said Thomas left a message for his family after his wife disappeared.
Bullos wife, a nurse, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that she believes Bulloch was referring to Thomas.
Bullington told The AP that he has not spoken with Thomas since he contacted him in January.
He also said he is not sure if the man is a suspect or just someone who knows Thomas.
He added that he does not know if Thomas has been interviewed by the Iowa State Police or whether there is an ongoing investigation.
The Iowa House of Representatives is scheduled to vote Wednesday on a bill that would make it easier for people with mental health or substance abuse problems to recover from being separated.
The bill would allow them to seek care at a local hospital for a fee and would also provide mental health workers with a free emergency room appointment for any person with a mental health problem.
The House is scheduled Thursday to vote on another bill that will make it more difficult for people to lose their jobs if they have a history or history of domestic violence or stalking.
