Ohioan posts message on his SUV: 'Got kidney? I need 1'

Posted: Updated:
 COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio man in need of a kidney donor is taking his search on the road in unusual fashion, with bright yellow letters taped to the rear window of his sport utility vehicle.

The message on Neal Raisman's silver-blue SUV reads: "Got kidney? I need 1." It includes a phone number for interested callers.

The Columbus Dispatch reports a similar message is taped on an SUV belonging to Raisman's daughter, who lives not far from her father's home in the Columbus suburb of Bexley. They took the SUV ad approach after Raisman's relatives were ruled out as donors because of diabetes and other medical reasons.

The 67-year-old Raisman says he has heard from a few people, including one offering to sell him an organ, but there's no matching donor yet.

    Daytime highs for the interior valleys are backing off from triple digits on Monday. Temperatures for California Valley and Shandon will get close to 100 degrees on Monday, but right now daytime highs will range from the upper 80s to upper 90s. High pressure over the area is moving to the east, which is allowing for those interior valleys to cool down this week. However, with extremely dry live and dead fuel paired with gusty onshore winds, fire weather danger remains to be of concern...
