Till I See You Again

One of my readers posted this in a comment on a previous blog, and I loved it. It does remind me so much of you, Michaela, I had to give it its own post. I don't know if you can watch it from this blog. I have watched it on my ipad with no problem, and on my laptop with along commercial you could click out of, and in the html here it says it cannot be played back on certain sites and to watch on YouTube. So if there is nothing but fuzz here, you can click on the "watch on youtube" link.


I love you forever, my sweet girl.

  2. there is a song which has lyrics in the chorus that really stick out to me. if you read the lyrics for the entire song, it may not fit 100%, but the chorus sure does! it's called "when you come home" by mark schultz (one of my favorite Christian artists).

    "When you come home,
    No matter how far,
    Run through the door
    And into my arms;
    It's where you are loved,
    It's where you belong,
    And I will be here
    When you come home,
    When you come home."

    1. I thought Garrido was ruled out as a suspect, maybe they have unmentioned evidence??

      Delete
    2. Garrido has been ruled out as a suspect. There is one thing I can tell you for sure, and that is that you cannot believe everything you read in the media.

    3. Have the Speed freak killers been ruled out too?

      Delete
    4. Well, we have reached a kind of a dead end, but they haven't been completely ruled out.

      Delete
    5. I hope they rule them out It's really chilling to have them as suspects. I hope they are not prime suspects or anything major and are almost ruled out. Imagine Michaela, Ilene, Amber, Nikki are located alive and well, together and a few others or at least Michaela? Wouldn't that be nice? And the girls go back with their families.

      Delete
    6. That would be nice. I pray every day for their safe returns. Those girls have been on my mind and heart since I first read of their cases.

  4. Hi Sharon,

    I just recently became aware of your story and this site.
    I don't know if this means anything to you, but I have prayed for you and your family, and all of Michaela's loved ones and will continue to pray.

    Thank you so much!

    Jasmine.

  5. Hi.
    I just want to tell you that I can feel your pain :)
    I will pray for you to find your Michaela. The world will never stop looking for the missing children. A website like this is brilliant! I really hope she reads this or someone that knows where she is.

    Tons of hugs from Helene in Norway

    2. I cant report it from my mobile device, but please report this! It needs to be removed!!!

    3. Report the page? As I said in my comment, this is about someone else, not my Michaela, and that Miohaela seems to be in on it. The first time I saw it, I did report it to Facebook.

  7. I can’t help but wonder if a new stream of leads might come in if
    a skilled volunteer could put together a Missing flier for Michaela with the suspect sketch AND manufactures model picture of the kidnappers vehicle (side by side).
    After reading the following description:“The abductor drove a large older model American-made sedan. It was possibly a four-door vehicle and was either cream or tannish gold in color” I googled “American 1980 four door sudan images” (link below)
    I know the vehicle description won’t fully fit a model perfectly because ““The car may have had cement splatters on the sides and lights set into the rear bumper. The front bumper was battered; the vehicle appeared run-down, it may have previously been in an accident”., however before Michaela and the car disappeared from public view the owner had to have filled the gas tank many times and parked it in numerous locations.

    Perhaps the sole eyewitness could pick the specific model car she saw which when presented on a flier could help jog others peoples memories. HOPE CONTINUES

    1. I appreciate the thought you put into this. However, we are not at a loss for leads. Our problem is more that we have too many leads and we are trying to sift through them and catalog them. But doing random searches for a car that might look like the one the kidnapper drove is something that was done 24 years ago.

      Thanks, though.

      Delete
    2. You’re welcome. --“too many leads” WOW! After 25 years those words point in a very positive and hopeful direction! I will redirect my prayers toward there being enough help made available to complete the enormous task at hand and as always a healing conclusion!

    3. Has their ever been Jane does thought to be Michaela before the speed freak killers bone?

      Delete
    4. OH GOSH!! :( I just now reread the ? Anonymous wrote and it is NOT the 1 I answered UGH! I just noticed the words "Jane does" "Michaela" and "speed freak killers" and off I went to get articles and give my unsolicted opinion...sorry

    5. If any other bay area cases are solved will the assailants be investigated in Michaela's case such as ilene or nikki?

      Delete
    6. Anonymouses, yes there was a Jane doe homicide victim ruled out as Michaela, found in Arizona around 1997-99 and was identified in 2008, and the killer was punished. She was known as Maricopa Jane Doe. Not important in finding Michaela.

      And I have been wondering that question too on top me let's say Ilene is found and the people who took her are arrested, will they be investigated for involvement with Michaela?

      Delete
    7. Michaela is in the database, with fingerprints, dental records, and DNA. Whenever here is a unidentified victim, it is compared to all those in the database. But there has not been anybody that they had any reason to believe was Michaela. And I'm surprised anybody would have to wonder if a local kidnapper would be investigated for involvement with Michaela's case. Of course they would. You guys have got to give the investigators some credit.

      Delete
  8. YES there is *still* a JANE DOE from the “Speed Freak Killers” findings in a well. “, an unidentified female aged 16 to 18, and the fetus.” LA REPORTER article October 11, 2012. and CBSnews January 8, 2013, 4:42 AM CBS NEW REPORTED “Four of the bodies have been identified as long-missing women suspected of being killed by Shermantine and Herzog. The fifth remains unidentified.” Wiki “The remains of an additional victim as well as an unidentified fetus was found at the well.” :’(
    (3 links posted below my comment)

    Since there are leads pointing to Michaela being in Mexico and then UAE if there were any connection to the “Speed Freak Killers” it would be through another branch of crime they participated in such as kidnapping for human trafficking purposes in trade for their expensive 15 year speed habit. HOPE CONTINUES!!

    1. There is another person connected to Mexico. It has nothing to do with the Speed Freak Killers. There is an entire room and five filing cabinets at the Hayward Police Department dedicated to Michaela's case. It is far more complex than you can imagine, and it is not necessary to try to draw these connections. The purpose of this blog is actually to reach out to Michaela, or to someone who knows who took her and where she is. That is where our hope lies.

      Delete
    2. I see your point. > May the “.. five filing cabinets “ of leads finally be sorted with the much needed help SOON & the hope centered purpose of this blog be fulfilled. It is frustrating to think the answers could have already been sent but there were budget restraints that prevented persuing it.
      I wish a similar group of volunteer criminal justice students CNN featured that “began with a list of five suspects, then narrowed it down to one.” In the Chandra Levy case could help.
      http://www.cnn.com/2009/CRIME/02/27/levy.campus.crime.club/

      Should the PD or you ever decide to sponsor a fund-raiser to help hire more professional help I would donate.

  9. It is great that a volunteer student club could solve the Levy case. It is sad that there are so many leads in Michaela's case that have still not been investigated after so many years for lack of resources. Perhaps some group of students in a college would be willing to take this up and get to the bottom of those cabinets.

    1. You'd have to show me evidence that a volunteer student club solved a case. And there are volunteers at the police department. They are also working on possibly instituting an internship program for criminal justice students. But the volunteers are all screened. You can't just go into the police department and volunteer to work on the case and be granted access to the files.

  11. I hope, personally, that if either Ilene or Nikki or Michaela are found, that yes, they will then investigate that person in a possible connection to the other Bay Area missing children. In recent weeks, we have seen the 3 Ohio girls recovered from Ariel Castro's prison or home and it would be insane to assume that he was not capable or did not abduct anyone else. His primary concern was abducting young women for his own sick benefits. The three girls that he abducted disappeared all within about 2 years of each other and all bore similar appearances. I hope and pray every day that something comes about in Michaela's case - for several reasons, mainly for Sharon, who needs some answer - any answer. She needs to see Michaela again, she needs to know where she is, whether she's ok, and to hold her little girl in her arms.

  12. Sharon, I haven't commented in a while but wanted to let you know that I often check your blog for news and to see how you're doing. You and Michaela are often in my thoughts and always in my prayers.

    Take care.

  13. With the combination of your highly intellectual mind, science based exploration of astrology and yearning heart to communicate with Michaela I believe you would flourish in the field of” Remote Viewing” If interested Perhaps these books might be helpful? Below are 2 book titles with a description of what “Remote Viewing “ is

    (1) REMOTE VIEWING SECRETS A HANDBOOK By Joseph McMoneagle
    Description( found on Monroe Institute website) “Remote viewing is not simply using psychic ability to obtain information. It is using scientific protocol to develop and extend that ability, so that ordinary people can learn to do what “psychics” do. This book teaches you how to teach yourself. Joseph McMoneagle learned remote viewing in the U.S. Army – he was Remote Viewer #001 in the Army’s STARGATE program – and was awarded the Legion of Merit for his contribution to various intelligence operations. In Remote Viewing Secrets, he uses examples, exercises, and anecdotes to share what he learned and how he learned it, and gives you everything you need to begin developing your own abilities.” http://www.monroeinstitute.org/product/remote-viewing-secrets-a-handbook/:by Joseph McMoneagle


    (2) REMOTE VIEWING The Science and Theory of Nonphysical Perception “ By Courtney Brown (Decription from PHD authors website:
    “Remote viewing is the mental ability to perceive and describe places, persons, or events at distant locations in the past, present, and future. The reality of the remote-viewing phenomenon is not in dispute among a large body of respected researchers — both inside and outside of academia —who have published an extensive collection of high-quality investigations over the past few decades. But profound mysteries remain. Remote Viewing: The Science and Theory of Nonphysical Perception breaks new ground by resolving some of remote-viewing's greatest enigmas. In these pages, new research and new theories explain why remote viewing works. >> http://www.courtneybrown.com/publications/RemoteViewing.html

  14. Wow, I just read a whole bunch of old newspaper articles about Michaela, and wow so many suspects and false leads/hope. From rapists, kidnappers, murderers, serial killers to carjackers, bank robbers, witnesses, and simply people who just looked like the composite where looked into but ZILCH. Makes me angry

    And any Updates with the SPK? Or anything about Michaela?

  15. “Hope” is the thing with feathers -
    That perches in the soul -
    And sings the tune without the words -
    And never stops - at all -......”

    1. I don't think there is ever "false hope or leads". You have to always keep hope alive and keep everything open. Because once you dismiss any lead or person or the tiniest fact, you could be missing an important piece to the whole puzzle. Also,I'm certain if there was anything new on Michaela it would be here.

  18. For what it's worth Sharon, I believe you can be very okay. You have a heavy burden of hope to carry. Maybe sometimes you need to put your hope on the back burner in order to build up the strength to carry it. I hope you can do that guilt-free.

    And by the way...I just recently read somewhere that Ben Needham's mother is getting her story published, despite the lack of happy ending. I remember you saying that one of the barrier's to publishing your story was the lack of a happy ending. Given the wonderful talent you have as a writer, your story would definitely be publishable, if ever you have the time/energy to do it.
