    I just wanted to notate that while searching for Adrian info, I did come across a male who bears a striking resemblence to Adrian with a Spanish/English Facebook page.

    I will not link here. It may not be him, and if it isn't it's inappropriate to link his social networking page to our forums.

    I did call the FACES Lab and spoke to a POC listed at the bottom of his listing there and gave her the info to look into. I do not expect a follow-up call. Prayers it's him and he is safe.

    Hello, Bella. Thank you for joining us. I can't imagine how difficult that past several years without your brother have been.

    Do you have any theories or opinions as to what may have happened to him? There isn't much info online, but what is there seems to indicate that Adrian was really had no reason vanish and no enemies.

    Bobby88 I was 11 years old when my brother disappeared.. I honestly think his friends had something to do with this situation. he had no enemies and was very close to the family this wasn't something he would do.

    Do you remember (I realize you were young at the time) if his friends were interviewed about their knowledge of the disappearance? Did Adrian have a girlfriend at the time who could have been involved?

    Was there any reason that Adrian would disappear on his own accord?

    I do remember them interviewing his friends. I also remember him having a girlfriend and she was never heard from after he went missing. I'm looking into getting those "friends" information to see if I can locate them and speak with them myself.

    My brother was very close to my parents, he was also in college finishing up undergrad school to then go into medical school. I know he wouldn't have disappeared on his own, he would let my parents know of where he was so they wouldn't worry about him.

    The girlfriend never being heard from again after Adrian's disappearance sounds rather odd.

    yes it's very odd that she never called back after he went missing. What's more odd is the fact that her number or any information on her wasn't in my brother's address book.

    How long had they been dating at the time?

    This is an odd case

    Certain cases just have an aura of mystery, and this is one of them. Usually, when a person disappears with their car, I assume they're in a pond, river, or at the bottom of a canyon. In those cases, the first thing I look for is nearby places for them to be. It's one thing for a person to disappear - but a car never turning up anywhere, stolen or otherwise, really weighs heavily in favor of the person and the car being in the same place.

    The girlfriend not calling again - maybe it was causal or not a girlfriend at all. Her not being in his address book would mean, she's not a girlfriend. Friends can be unhelpful if they're doing wrong things (driving drunk, causing trouble) just because they don't want to cops getting too nosey. It doesn't mean they had something to do with his disappearance. It doesn't sound like he was wealthy.

    Whether his friends had something to do with it - what would be the motivation - to get his car? 1968 Camaro is a decent classic, but it's not a Ferrari. It's possible he was murdered, but then his car would have appeared somewhere, lost stolen etc.
    But maybe he just left late and ended up driving his car into a ravine, pond, or river. Were there any such places from Eddie's Lounge to his residence where he might have ended up?

    no we are not a wealthy family, and yes his car may not have been a ferrari. I know that his friends know more than they ever lead anyone to think, funny how they never came back around after he dissappear and to this day we have not been able to locate them after a surprise visit to them when they moved to texas where we tracked them down, they were very nervous the whole time we were visiting them.. oh and one of the friends avoided coming to the father's house and the father wouldn't tell us his location... that was shady if you ask me... if they didn't do something to him then they know what happened to my brother. I believed he was murdered and his body and the car are together somewhere. All i want is to find my brother to give him a proper burial and the rest i leave it in God's hands

    Hi, bellaplanells. I'm local, and I'm so sorry for your family. Can you tell me where was Adrian living at the time? Not an exact address, but the street, nearest intersection. Also, do you know if the bar employees were questioned at the time? I assume they probably were, and as usual, didn't have anything to say. But, do you have any information about that?

    Hello Bessie my brother was living at home with my parents, he was in college and worked weekends at the resturant. my parents lived on Florida ave. The intersections is West Esplande and Williams Blvd. The police questioned all the employees he worked with as well as the people that worked at the lounge across the street from the resturant. After work the day he dissappeared he and co workers went to the lounge for a few drinks, my brother had one drink and told everyone he was leaving because he had to get up early to study for his exam on monday morning, they seen him leave the lounge and he was never seen again. no one knew anything else or seen anything else. The police knew my brother clock out of work they had that time and from there they had witnesses see him go with the co workers to the bar... from there he vanished without a trace. The past 25 years have been very hard for my family...the not knowing is what's eating us up. my mother passed away 5 years ago and i promised on her grave i wouldn't stop till i found out what happened to my brother.

    Again, I'm so sorry for your loss and the pain your family has lived with all these years. I just noticed the addresses are in the opening post. He didn't have far to travel at all, and that certainly was not a high crime area, and he wouldn't have come near any waterways if he headed straight home, unless you consider the canal on Vets, but his car would have been found if he'd driven in there. Also, there was no altercation in the bar. It does make me think someone known to him was responsible. Were any searches ever conducted?

    Thank you so much for your condolences. my brother didn't have to travel far to go to work. I know that the police searched all the canals in the area. In 89 Kenner had a lot of areas where you can hide a body or a car and i know the cop searched those areas as well and found nothing. I just created a facebook page with my brother's information and i have people that have been sharing it to create awarness of his status. It took me years to create this page because people can be so rude and say things that are unnecessary, i had one guy say that i should have posted recent pictures of my brother... i got to say it felt good going off on him.
