Two people have pointed out to me that it’s a quarter-century to the day since Michaela Garecht was abducted from a grocery store parking lot in Hayward, California. She’s never been seen since. Maybe if we had had Amber Alerts back then the outcome would have been different.
Michaela’s mother has a blog here and she’s working on a novel based on her daughter’s kidnapping. She believes Michaela
is may be still alive and may have been taken out of the country.
In a very puzzling and information-deficient release, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has said they don’t believe foul play was involved in the deaths of three people whose skeletal remains were found over the weekend. They are presumed to be Bobby, Sherilynn and Madyson Jamison although this hasn’t been confirmed as yet.
So what happened then?
…Valentin Kaloustov, a gentleman of apparent Russian origin judging by his name and his clothes, who disappeared from Ceres, California in 1999. One of those lovely “few details are available” cases.
