MP of the week: Fred Wright

This week’s featured MP is Fred Wright, a thirteen-year-old boy who vanished from his Tuskegee, Alabama home on December 6, 1998. His case is very frustrating to me due to the lack of detail. I have no clue what happened to his kid and I can’t find any news about this case. Is he runaway? An abduction? I’m thinking more the latter, since it says there is a suspect in his disappearance. I really wish I knew more.

If anybody reading this knew Fred or has any more details about his disappearance, I welcome you to email me or post about it in the comments section of this blog entry.

If Fred is still alive, he’ll have turned 30 years old last month.

    You’re right, internet searches bring back very little information about the case. There’s a Facebook page about the disappearance that has been dormant for about four years.

    I noticed the twitter account for Birmingham office of the FBI just tweeted about the case a few months ago.

    I did find it interesting that someone posted this (in 2011) on a CNN iReport page:

    “The suspect in Fred’s disappearance has since been deceased. His case is cold.”

    Someone (the account actually looks like it might be Alabama law enforcement: http://ireport.cnn.com/people/lhr5772) went through the trouble of putting the report up on CNN. Perhaps someone could e-mail the law enforcement contact and ask them to include more information about Fred Wright’s disappearance.

    hopefully he will be found. Some other random things:

    Unfortunately, we’re rapidly reaching the point where the Alaska family of four are eligible to be featured on Charley. I think the media is dubbing them “The Kenai Four”. I personally think this will go on to be the new McStays/Jamesons. by the by, does anybody think that Michelle Houchman and family were the McStays of the 80’s?

    Also, Genevieve Kelley surrendered herself to authorities several months ago after being featured on the first season of The Hunt with John Walsh (possibly the greatest human being alive), but she hasn’t revealed the whereabouts to Mary Nunes. It’s not known if she is even alive at this point. Strangely, the episode didn’t mention the horses.

    Possibly a runaway?
