MP of the week: Virgil Tackett

This week’s featured missing person is Virgil Wade Tackett, a 17-year-old boy from Ohio who was spending the summer up in Alaska when he disappeared while out on his skiff near Chichagof Island in the Alaskan Panhandle area on June 11, 1986.

His family seems to think he’s still alive and possibly suffering from amnesia; they have pointed to unconfirmed sightings in Alaska and Canada. I think it’s unlikely. But if still alive, Virgil would be 51 years old today.

I hope everyone is well and staying safe and healthy. Michael started work again today.

    There is a long story on the Holland Sententinal about authorities testing remains found in the backyard of Dennis Bowman’s home in Allegan County. It tells the story of Aundria’s birth mother search for the daughter she gave up for adoption.

    What bothers me is that Dennis Bowman, had a criminal record prior to Aundria bring adopted by him and his wife. I have concerns about the wife’s involvement in his criminal activities.

    I would like the adoption agency to review the backgrounds of the people who adopted children through them.
