Surge in traffic over the weekend

According to the Charley Project’s visitor stats, Thursday, Friday and Saturday all saw over 10,000 visits, with over 15,000 on Friday. This is in contrast to the usual eight to nine thousand visits. Besides my frontpage, the most popular page on the site was Nicholas Patrick Barclay‘s casefile.

I think he might have been featured on CNN recently; my friend KC said he saw a program about “an impostor who passed himself off to family as missing son” and said one of their graphics was credited to the Charley Project. KC couldn’t remember the names in the CNN story, but if it wasn’t about Nicholas I don’t know who they could be referring to.

    Yep, it was Nicholas Patrick Barclay. I watched a short clip on CNN’s website, where they talked about the movie “The Imposter”.

    I also had a surge in views on my blog this weekend, mostly on MP-related articles. I believe “Disappeared” reran an episode profiling a case I have featured.

    Between the heroin addict mom and the sketchy brother, this poor kid never had a chance. No wonder he was acting out.

    I have kind of a random question. In about what percentage of “endangered missing”/”missing” cases that are resolved, in your estimation, does the person turn out to be alive and that person just ran away to start a new life? I’m talking about adults or people who ran away as teenagers and have remained missing well into adulthood.

    Also, just curious, why is Lauren Spierer not listed on Charley Project?

      On my site, there’s been sixteen of those cases.

        I see…I think there are more than that on Charley Project from what I’ve seen. Also when it says “[person] has been located, no other details are available,” that means they were located alive, right? So I guess those would also count towards the total?
