    I'm glad to see Websleuthers looking at this case. I lived in LA when Michael disappeared and have always wondered what happened.

    help for michaels family

    lets get this case to the forefront again, his family deserves closure. While it is unlikely Michael is still alive, we need to pressue investigators to keep up with the case, and/or continue the search. can anyone help, i sent an emial to AMW, they are looking into it, anyone help?

    I know it's not likely but could these pics be of same person?

    A few years ago another UCLA computer science student disappeared. I thought this was extremely odd -- what are the chances of that? But he turned up. It seems he had a nervous breakdown and lost his memory, but some kind family took him in and took care of him until he recovered somewhat.

    I saw a website once which propagated the ridiculous notion that Danielle Van Dam's father was involved in Michael Negrete's disappearance. They also claimed that Mr. Van Dam had killed Tiffany Sessions and Jared Negrete (not related to Michael) and some other people scattered across the country. Their so-called "evidence" of this was laughable but I thought how much it would hurt the Van Dam family, and also the families of the missing people named, to read that. It's disgusting what some people will say.

    I found this link of the same boxer:

    I don't see a resemblance in this photo.

    I remember when this poor kid disappeared. It is truly mind boggling. That a teenager in college, could just walk away and no one saw him (or anything). UCLA is in the middle of a pretty heavily populated area. Just frustrating! I hope they find Michael and bring peace and answers to his family.

    maybe i'm crazy but i do see a resemblance here:
    http://www.nanotech.wisc.edu/people/Negrete/index.html

    more in the nose than the mouth or eyebrows. i know this is wishfull thinking and doesn't help matters but stranger things have happened.

    If he is out there OK, I know he'd be on myspace.com

    I ran a couple searches:

    http://www.myspace.com/cindytellsme

    http://www.myspace.com/145683373

    Both are the right age and look like Mike. Especially the first one -- look at the other pics (there is one of this guy on a couch which looks spot on).

    My appologies to those of you not able to see these links. Let me know what you think.

    both myspaces list his astrological sign as either aquarius or leo, which dosen't match up with his birthday (3-25-81).

    but who knows. anyone can easily lie on those things.

    But what do you think of the visual similarities? Any thoughts?

    i think if anything, the 2nd profile looks like him. It looks like he might have gained a little weight, but the resembalance is good. Note how the eyebrows and lips are similar.

    I doubt this is him though, since his profile is all in Spanish. I wonder how fluent he was in Spanish?

    I'm curious why everybody seems to be thinking that Mike just "disappeared" himself! What are you basing that on?

    None of the pics look enough like him to actually be him, IMO. Some of the pics. offered are strikingly different than Mike! Hairline, jawline, shape of face, etc. all different. The other young man with the same last name could be a relative since there seems to be family resemblance......similar, but not the same features.

    Question

    It isn't one way or the other with me. I did get a strange feeling from the letter on the findmike website and the open letter from his parents on the lapd website, that there must have been some leaning towards a voluntary disappearence.

    I did think the picture jodierenee singled out looks the most like him.

    http://i7.tinypic.com/2evufpz.jpg

    I gridded it out in Photoshop and the major features line up perfectly. The eye sockets, the distance from the forehead to the peaks in the eyebrows...

    What wasn't clear to me was the profile (in Spanish). Anyone know if Michael spoke Spanish?

    He is described as White/Hispanic in the findmike website. That doesn't mean absolutely that he would speak Spanish, but I'd tend to think he did.
