MP of the week: Jerry McFadden

This week’s featured missing person is Jerry Burtin McFadden, who disappeared from Foster City, California on March 24, 1987. He was 46 then, and would be 82 now, if still alive.

Not a whole lot of info is available in Jerry’s case besides the generic “suspicious circumstances.” There is, however, a detailed description of his clothing. He is white, 5’10, with brown hair and brown eyes, and has a red birthmark on the back of his neck and that goes up into his hairline.

My apologies for being quiet all week; I’m on the tail end now of another cycle of vomiting and can’t really get much done.

    i’m sorry you’ve been feeling unwell again. i have cyclical vomiting also and it’s such a bullshit diagnosis they give you when they don’t feel like investigating what’s actually going on

    i figured you might want to know that some case file pages are coming up looking broken with a link that says “this page has encountered a critical error”, i’m sorry you have to deal with that while you’re sick. hopefully it’s just my end and not yours.

    happy thankgiving!

      I got the same thing. Not on the Person of the Week, but on some others. Not every one, just some.

    Hi Meaghan.

    I recently read a great book about a woman’s quest to find her brother’s body in Tamaulipas Region in Mexico. Tamaulipas is a region where hundreds of people have disappeared in recent years as a result of a war between narco traffickers and government forces.

    The book is titled Antígona González. It was written by Sara Uribe. I accidentally ordered an extra copy of, and I’d like to send it to you if possible. This book is unique in the missing persons genre because 1) it is written in a poetic style, and 2) it deals with the psychological tension between resignation (and giving up the search), on one hand, and the agonizing sense of obligation that family members feel toward missing loved ones.

    Please let me know if it would be okay to mail this book to you. Maybe you could send me an email with a mailing address. I will understand if you are reluctant to do that, though. When the extra copy arrived in my mail box, I immediately thought of you.
