    Local here, too. I know that area, as well.

    I thought of a young co-worker I had a few years back who was out with his wife and brother and sister-in-law one night in Buckhead. At a stoplight some guys thumped on his hood, and he made the mistake of saying something. He came in to work the next Monday beaten 7 ways to Sunday. He and his brother both were hospitalized... yet the assault never made the news, here. This kid, Daniel, is only 5'8" and very slight, 120 lbs. If he was caught out in the wrong place at the wrong time in the dark around a Buckhead-area bar, the supposedly high-toned location would have made no difference. Then again, Daniel did just have a break-up in the news story I read. I know I had one of those in college that nearly made me disappear. Here's praying that's all he did, for a bit.

    Is there a river that runs through Alanta? Because this seems to similiar to the other stories.
    Boy.
    Last seen in a bar.
    Connected to a college.
    No one sees anything.
    And usually there is a river nearby.

    This guy seems to think that it is just happening in one area, but it isn't. It seems to be the central and eastern part of the country.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Here are a few shots of this area, I thought there was water around this area, but I can't seem to find any with a quick look and save of these pics. Google Earth and Randmcnally are great if I had time to really look, but in this pics I don't see water too close by....there is water out from where he disappeared from.
