    OR- Johnathan Croom, 18, driving from WA to AZ, 17 Aug 2013

    Hopefully this young man was just not wanting to go to college and has just left for awhile. I have been looking online at his SM and it seems he is just unsure of what he wants to do with life right now. (Which is how a lot of young adults are at that age.) So I have a feeling is is OK and just needs some time to figure things out. MOO...

    Not much on his Facebook although it is his verified by relation to his mother's name through MSM. On Facebook there is a link to a tumblr account; although not much there it did talk about him withdrawing from high school in March as he wanted to move forward and it was holding him back from graduating early?
    His last entry on twitter was July 26. Per link above by CatFancier... Johnaton's mother "...says he left Arizona on July 30 and was due to begin classes Monday at Mesa Community College."
    His twitter links to his blog.

    Look through them see what you think, but as I stated before, to me I just feel like he will be OK at least I hope so! MOO. I hope he contacts home soon so his family can stop worrying.

    This disappearance sounds similar to others that didn't turn out so well, Imoo.
    Cars found with no apparent damage, not out of gas, etc.
    He sounds like a smart young man. I hope he's found safe.... His mom must be beside herself.

    "...he left Seattle around Aug. 16 and was due back in Arizona last weekend so he could begin classes Monday at Mesa Community College."
    <Snip>
    "He walked away from his car. The car did not break down. It was not out of gas. There was money in the car and the car was unlocked."
    <Snip>
    "Johnathan Croom is 6-foot-1 and weighs 140 pounds and might be carrying a multi-colored backpack, his mother said.
    His SUV wasn't vandalized, and authorities have searched the general area where the vehicle was found.
    David Croom told Oregon authorities he has not heard from his son since Saturday."
    BBM


    So Last time his dad heard from him was Sat Aug 17, 2013. He left Seattle Aug 16 and his SUV was found in Riddle, Oregon which is about 373 miles or about 5hr 48 mins from Seattle.
    Here is the google map...

    There are a few routes you can take from Seattle to Mesa, Arizona, looks like he was taking I-5.

    Per this news link, his mother said he may be carrying a multi-colored backpack; so again I pray he just left and will be found safe somewhere possibly with a friend? Wishful thinking I know... MOO.

    OR/WA - Johnathan Croom, 18, driving from WA to AZ, 17 Aug 2013

    http://www.kpho.com/story/23243828/mesa-teen-missing

    Jonathan Croom was supposed to start at Mesa Community College this week after coming back from the solo road trip to Seattle.

    "That's the behavior his mother has, we like to get in the car and explore," she said.

    The last time Monica Croom heard from her son was when she got a text from him last Wednesday. Jonathan Croom lives with his brother in Mesa, so she figured he'd just go back to his place when he got back.

    "I thought he had gotten back to the area, and would just show up to school on Monday," she said.

    But he didn't and it wasn't until officials found his car in Riddle, OR, that she knew he was missing.


    Monica Croom says her son is "super smart" and has Boy Scout experience. She says his car didn't break down, wasn't out of gas and was unlocked with money inside. *very disturbing*

    Prayers he's found safe and has just taken off on foot.

    It's kind of an odd quote by the mom - "that's the behavior his mother has" speaking of herself, in the third person. I guess it doesn't mean anything, just seems like an odd speech mannerism.

    Thanks for posting these links. I read through his blog posts from the beginning. He seems to be battling depression. He keeps trying to talk himself out of it and do things to feel better. He has good days, and tries to be optimistic, but there is such a dark undertow. It seems tough for him to swim out of it. I hope he didn't get pulled down into despair. Poor kid. Such a tough age. I really hope he's OK and just taking time out to think.

    In the attached link, in the comments, someone has posted two very upbeat YouTube videos from his trip, posted since he disappeared! There's quite a bit of discussion in the comments.

    http://www.komonews.com/news/local/M...220830101.html

    I found the link to the YouTube channel these are uploaded on. The religious nature of the other videos doesn't sound like how Johnathan presents himself. The creation date of two of the videos is 8/22 according to a commenter on the KOMO article.

    I just talked to the deputy sheriff, who didn't know about these videos, so I sent him the links.

    The videos are concerning...is that the "behavior his mother has" referred to at the link upthread...??? Is this just his normal behavior...???

    I get a bad feeling watching him.

    He went to visit a female friend correct...??? And drove alone so are these his own vids of himself that he is now posting or.....wha wha wha wha wha whst?!?!?!?

    Has me a tad wigged I gotta admit.


    Eta - The one about trickery...strange.

    "Croom said her son is "super smart" and "awesome with computers" and graduated early from Apache Junction High School."

    Doubtful, but I can't help but wonder if he was studying Adrienne's case. Just a thought. You guys should know me by now, I'm inclined to try to make connections between everything, hahaha.
