    I'm sure Wease will address it on Monday on his show. I hope they find the guy. That article says next to nothing about the case. I'll have to look for more.

    The area the crew searched is not far from where Straton lived. He's been missing for 13 days. Neighbors saw him last as he was leaving his home off St. Paul Street. That neighbor said Straton was visibly upset.

    <snip>

    "The bottom line is that he's been hooked up with the wrong people lately," said Kym Straton, Matthew's mother. "He's gotten involved with the wrong people and it's led to things he knows he shouldn't have done. Matt is not the kind of person just to take off. Something has happened to him."

    I believe the story was on Kimberly & Beck 98.9 The Buzz on Friday morning. Would be nice for other stations to pick it up.

    Should also be on Ch13 tonight too...

    Come home safe Matthew!

    I'm a friend of some group members. It took them a long time to get police to request media coverage. Stations wouldn't cover it without a request from authorities.
    Wease has been called - last week Kim and Beck covered it, and there was a short story in the newspaper. Now, after yesterday's search, YNN and ch 13 have jumped in.

    The family doesn't have much information. Matt was seen leaving his house on the 28th and never seen or heard from again. Matt talks to his family very regularly, esp his mom. Very worrisome is that his wallet, keys and his two dogs were left in his house. He would never leave his dogs - never.
    His family and friends are desperate to find him.
    Please help spread the word.

    Thanks a lot, leaving all his belongings and his dogs sounds ominous. Did he arrange to meet someone does anyone know?

    Oh, my, that river looks like a possibility. Has anyone has boated downstream to look for any sign that he might've wound up in the water? Can't find mention of it in any of the news reports.

    That's the Genesee River. It has a decent size falls back in Rochester and flows north to Lake Ontario. They would probably need a professional team to search as parts of it are treacherous. The other side of the river has a steep bank , all overgrown and wild.
    Sad to say there have been a number of bodies found near where they searched. Matt's house is not too far from there.
    I haven't heard anything about the police actually "looking", but they are doing some investigation. It took a while because of course, at first they said he's an adult and probably just left town."
    His friends and family will not give up.
    Matt spent a lot of time at my house when he was in high school with my son. Sweet kid. <3

    This is not sounding good, hopefully he is just off some place.
    Hope he is found soon.
    Don't mind the misspellings.

    Someone mentioned a shady ex girlfriend on Facebook.

    I feel like our local media is a huge fail on this case. Time is passing.

    The family has been told the media had to wait for police to authorize stories.

    Coverage is picking up. There will be an interview with family members tomorrow Wednesday) AM. From FaceBook.

    "Interview with the family coming to you live tomorrow AM thanks to channel 10 news. 5:30, 6:00, and 6:30am. Tune in early birds and please share share share️️ NEVER GIVING UP I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART #ROC — with Matthew Straton."

    Matt's friends and family will not let the story die. They are getting donations from local businesses i.e. a 6x4 foot banner from a shop in Webster where Matt went to high school.(i'm not sure where it will be hung up) and printing of flyers.

    Written by a famiy member, this is who Matt is:


    Matt,. had the biggest, softest heart.
    Matt is the oldest of many cousins on the Norton side of the family. Which you would never be able to tell cause when ever we were all together he would be playing with the kids just like he was one of them. It was a Norton family tradition that at parties and get togethers we all would play kick ball. It was so much fun playing and just watching the kids having so much fun. Matt was SOOOOO loved and adored by his little cousins.
    Matt was also a HUGE animal lover. He use to foster pets until they were able to find a real home. One day they took in a black puppy that ended up being very sick, Matt nursed this puppy back to health. Day in and day out he cared for this little pup, when most people would have just given it back to the agency. He fell in love with the dog, and Token has been Matt's best friend ever since.
    Matt also had a elderly neighbor when he lived on H..... I am not sure how they become friends, but S.... and Matt adopted Bob into there little family, and Bob was there for Holidays, and dinners. Matt helped Bob around the house and checked in on him daily until one day Bob pasted away. Matt had become his family, and Bob was Matt's. Matt was so heart broken over Bob's death.
    And that is who Matt is. A loving caring kind soul.
