This blog is dedicated with love to my missing daughter, Michaela Joy Garecht. Michaela was kidnapped on November 19, 1988, at the age of nine, and she is still missing. I will never stop looking for her. I will never stop loving her.
Sharon, you have probably thought of this already, but have you considered using the Ancestry DNA testing in your search? I am not sure if it would help but who knows? I hope that you find Michaela and can hold her close again. Julia
Hi, Sharon. I guess it's fair to assumpt you have tried every way of getting help with finding Michaela, but i'll ask anyway: have you tried reaching out to hackers? Some who could help trace down the illegal human trafficking deals you're mostly focused on following
Have you seen the drawing of "Tony" that are on Noreen Gosch's website? She claims it's one of her son's abductors and that the sketch is from 1982 but I'm pretty sure she's using the sketch of Michaela's abductor, and I find it pretty odd.
You are right. She is using a drawing from Michaela’s case, which was created in 1989. Unfortunately, Noreen doesn’t seem to care about what’s true.
Wow. It's really odd to deliberately use a completely irrelevant sketch and claim that it's one of her son's abductors, for so many reasons. It won't help find Johnny. I immediately recognized the sketch as Michaela's abductor, but other readers of her blog might not be as eagle-eyed and giving misleading information could deprive attention from the real abductor of her son. Also, I find this very disrespectful towards Michaela, as this is a sketch of HER abductor, based on HER friend's testimony, done to try and solve HER case.
Noreen knows full well this sketch is from Michaela’s case. We appeared together in a television program about it after it was released, along with several other mothers. Noreen kept saying that her son was the most famous kidnapping victim ever. I mean, who cares? I am as anxious that Johnny be found as Michaela. But I get the impression attention is the all important thing there. I also do not believe that Johnny came home for a visit and she just let him walk away. I’d have been attached to Michaela’s ankle if that happened.
Wow. What an incredibly odd thing to say about your missing child. Up until now I assumed that Noreen had only good intentions. Now I'm not so sure.
I'm sorry you have been coping with this. My friends daughter, Heather Teague, was abducted many years ago. She is like you . She will never give up. My heart and prayers for you ma'am.
SHaron, hope all is OK with you. We haven't heard from awhile...hope you're treatment is going well.
Hi there. I posted today on seekersroad.com blog page. 😊
Dear, Sharon I couldn’t find your new post on seekers road.Sincerely,Zahra
It’s on the blog page, Zahra. Just like this site, seekers road has many pages, but the blog is not the home page. Maybe it should be, I don’t know.
