    CA - Ilene Misheloff, 13, Dublin, 30 Jan 1989

    Marchers holds annual vigil for Ilene Misheloff

    By Sam Richards

    CONTRA COSTA TIMES

    Posted on Mon, Jan. 30, 2006

    DUBLIN - Mike and Jan Barnes weren't going to miss Monday's annual vigil for Ilene Misheloff even if the rain had not stopped.

    But like many of those who braved the unpredictable weather, the Barnes also came in the hope their presence would somehow shed light on Ilene's whereabouts after 17 years.

    "We have a daughter a little older than that," said Jan Barnes of Danville, a friend of the Misheloffs. "I can't imagine what life would be like without her."

    The Misheloffs march every year, marking the anniversary of their daughter Ilene's disappearance. They are supporting both their daughter and law enforcement efforts to find her. They also want to keep the public eye on the investigation.

    "We're just trying to remind people we're still looking for Ilene," said Mike Misheloff, "Maybe

    Ilene Misheloff disappeared from the streets of Dublin on the afternoon of Jan. 30, 1989. The 13-year-old had left Wells Middle School and was headed to the Dublin Iceland rink for a skating lesson. Ilene has not been heard from since.

    Monday night, for the 17th annual candlelight vigil, about 120 walkers started their observance at Wells Middle on Dublin's Penn Drive and walked about a mile to St. Raymond's Catholic Church on Shannon Avenue. The gathering was a representative cross section of this suburban community, ranging in age from grade schoolers to seniors and including a dog or two.

    Police, who say they still get three or four new leads per year on Ilene's disappearance, support the vigil as a way to keep the case in the public eye.

    The Misheloffs publicize their daughter's case all year round. Out of an office on Village Parkway, the family runs the Ilene Misheloff Recovery Effort, sending out hundreds of fliers each week about Ilene, the facts of her disappearance and a computer enhanced picture of what she may look like as an adult.

    Police Detective Nate Schmidt was heartened by Monday night's turnout and figures the ample media attention will generate at least a few calls over the next several days.

    "You never know -- the smallest tip might turn into something big," Schmidt said.

    Ilene Misheloff was 5-feet-3 inches tall and 115 pounds at the time of her disappearance. She had brown hair and brown eyes and had braces on her teeth.

    The Misheloffs ask anyone with information about Ilene's disappearance to call Dublin police at 925-833-6670 or 800-635-6306, or the FBI at 415-553-7400.

    possible suspect

    Look here....http://websleuths.com/forums/showthr...ghlight=jaycee

    There is some suspicion that she was abuducted by the same person(s) who abducted another little girl from South Lake Tahoe named Jaycee Dugard.

    James Anthony Daveggio has been considered as a possible suspect in Dugard's abduction since the early 1990s. He and his former girlfriend, Michelle Lyn Michaud, were charged with the 1997 abduction, rape and murder of Vanessa Swanson. Swanson's remains were discovered approximately five miles from the site of Dugard's 1991 abduction. Photos of Daveggio and Michaud are posted below this case summary. They were also charged with additional counts of sexual assault in unrelated cases in the mid-1990s. Michaud claims that she met Daveggio in 1996 and therefore was not involved in Dugard's abduction. There are striking similarities between Michaud and the female suspect in Dugard's case. However, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has created a timeline tracing Michaud and Daveggio's whereabouts over the 1980s and 1990s and they say the pair could not have abducted Dugard.
    Daveggio is also considered a possible suspect in the disappearances of Amber Swartz-Garcia, Michaela Garecht and Ilene Misheloff. Neither he nor Michaud has been charged in connection with any of the disappearances.
    A defrocked priest named Stephen Kiesle became a suspect in Dugard's abduction in mid-2002. He was suspected because has since been arrested and charged with molesting three girls at the Santa Paula Catholic Church in Fremont, where he worked from 1968 to 1971. Kiesle did not know Dugard and denies any involvement in her case. Police searched his yard three times, using cadaver-sniffing dogs, radar, and a backhoe. They were looking not only for evidence in Dugard's disappearance but also evidence in the 1989 kidnapping of Amber Swartz-Garcia. They found no clues pertaining to either case and the searches concluded in July 2002.
    Authorities have also investigated the possibility that Brian David Mitchell and his wife, Wanda Barzee, abducted Dugard. Photographs of Mitchell and Barzee are posted below this case summary. They are charged with the abduction and sexual assault of fourteen-year-old Elizabeth Smart of Salt Lake City, Utah. Smart was kidnapped from her bedroom in June 2002 and held captive for nine months before being rescued in March 2003. Mitchell, also known as David Emmanuel Isiah, has bizarre religious beliefs and reportedly thought God told him to make Smart his wife.
    The police are investigating similarities between Smart's and Dugard's cases. The two victims physically resemble each other, and Dugard's stepfather says Barzee resembles the woman he saw abduct Dugard. Mitchell and Barzee have not been charged in connection to Dugard's abduction, however, and authorities are not certain if either was involved.

    Thank you for posting this, and bumping this case. This case hits close to home for me. I'm aware of this guy. They think his home stomping grounds were Pleasanton, the next town over from Dublin. He trolled for Vanessa Sampson in a torture van outside Foothill High School. She was walking along to work. Vanessa's body was found near South Lake Tahoe.

    I also recently learned Ilene's backpack was found in a park very close to the ice skating rink she was walking to.

    Garecht Connection...

    There was a widely published composite sketch of the suspect in the Michaela Garecht case. How does this James Anthony Daveggio compare with that sketch and description? Was his photo ever shown to the woman who saw Michaela's abductor?

    CONTRA COSTA TIMES

    A candlelight vigil and prayer service for Ilene Misheloff, kidnapped from the streets of Dublin 18 years ago, will be held Tuesday evening.

    Since her disappearance on Jan. 30, 1989, her family, friends and Dublin residents have gathered each year on the anniversary to remind the public that Ilene is still missing.

    Ilene, 13, was last seen leaving Wells Middle School. She was heading to an ice skating lesson at Dublin Iceland and has not been heard from since.

    The Misheloffs have not given up on finding their daughter. They publicize Ilene's case all year. From an office on Village Parkway, the family runs the Ilene Misheloff Recovery Effort. They send out hundreds of fliers each week about Ilene, the facts of her disappearance and a computer enhanced picture of what she may look like as an adult.

    Ilene Misheloff was 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighed 115 pounds at the time of her disappearance. She has brown eyes, wore her brown hair shoulder length and had braces on her teeth. The day she disappeared, she was wearing a charcoal gray pullover polo sweater, a horizontally striped pink and gray skirt, black low-top Keds and carried a dark blue back pack. more at link:http://www.contracostatimes.com/mld/...s/16551453.htm

    This article would probably bring back sad memories for you JDB. It's scary to think this person is still out there. Where is he now?

    She did disappear along with several other girls from the Bay Area, true. But they think her captors are in jail on Death Row for other crimes- James Daveggio and Michelle Michaud. They have not confessed and her body has never been found. I thought she deserved her own thread, as she didn't have one...

    I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your Mom.

    I agree, Linask, she does deserve her own thread! To this day, every time I drive by the Ice Rink I think of her. However, I've never heard that they suspect James Daveggio and Michelle Michaud are responsible for her kidnapping. Are they the people who kidnapped and killed the Pleasanton woman? How did you hear about this? Very interesting...


    How is your leg doing? How much longer will you be in a cast?

    Ca- That's what I read in the articles when they killed the gal from Pleasanton. They were trolling with a van around that time, and he's originally from Pleasanton. I've also since learned that Ilene's backpack was found in the creek at Mape Park!

    Upper Images and Lower Left: Misheloff, circa 1989;


    Lower Right: Age-progression at age 30 (circa 2005) Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
    Missing Since: January 30, 1989 from Dublin, California

    Classification: Non-Family Abduction
    Date Of Birth: March 12, 1975
    Age: 13 years old
    Height and Weight: 5'3, 115 pounds
    Distinguishing Characteristics: Caucasian female. Brown hair, brown eyes. Misheloff wore braces on her teeth at time of her disappearance. Her ears are pierced. Misheloff has freckles on her cheeks and on the bridge of her nose, and a small lump on the inside of her left ankle.
    Clothing/Jewelry Description: A charcoal-gray Espirit pullover polo sweater, a pink and charcoal-gray skirt with horizontal stripes, and black low-top Keds sneakers.

    Details of Disappearance
    Misheloff was walking home in Dublin, California on January 30, 1989 at 3:00 p.m., after her classes concluded at Wells Intermediate School. Several classmates reported seeing Misheloff walking alone on Amador Valley Boulevard near Village Parkway and the Shamrock Shopping Center in the afternoon; she vanished shortly afterwards. She was taking a shortcut home, going through a wide alley behind a shopping center, a furniture store called the Sawmill, and Gallagher's Pub, then across the boulevard and through John Mape Park along a dry creek bed.

    Misheloff has never been seen again. She was carrying a dark blue backpack at the time of her disappearance. The backpack was later found abandoned in the creek bed in John Mape Park near where she was last seen. It was located after the area had already been searched; authorities believe someone may have placed it there after Misheloff's disappearance.
    Authorities announced that Timothy Bindner had a possible connection to Misheloff's case, as well as the disappearances of Michaela Garecht, Amber Swartz-Garcia, Tara Cossey and Amanda Campbell. A photo of Bindner is posted below this case summary. He maintains his innocence and successfully sued Campbell's hometown of Fairfield, California in 1997 for defamation of character. Bindner, a married sewage treatment plant worker, came to authorities' attention after he began sending birthday greetings to young girls in the East Bay area. One child's parents contacted authorities and handed over a letter Bindner had written to their daughter. The note was printed backwards and could only be deciphered by holding it up to a mirror. Bindner claimed he sent the cards as a kind gesture because the girls were "lonely."

    Bindner also visited the Oakmont Cemetery gravesite of Angela Bugay, a five-year-old girl girl who was abducted and murdered in Antioch, California in 1983. A photograph of Bugay is posted below this case summary. Bindner was never considered a suspect in her murder and another man has since been arrested in that case.
    Bindner approached many of the mothers of missing girls from the East Bay area offering his assistance, including Amber and Garecht's families. He introduced himself to Kim three days after Amber vanished. Investigators asked her to maintain a quasi-friendship with Bindner in hope of learning if he was connected to any of the girls' cases. She and authorities agreed that Bindner appeared to playing mind games with victims' loved ones and law enforcement. Many people theorize that he enjoyed taunting families into thinking that he may have been involved in the presumed abductions. He was once arrested for annoying two little girls whom he was trying to lure into his van, but the charges were later dropped. Bindner often drove around in a light blue Dodge van with a license plate that said "Lov You." Inside the van was wallpapered with many pictures of children. A photograph of the van is posted below this case summary.
    Bindner refers to himself as a "good Samaritan." He asked Linda Golston, a reporter for The San Jose Mercury News, to interview him at Oakmont Cemetery at 4:30 a.m. He played his favorite song on her car stereo, "Jesus, Here's Another Child To Hold." Bindner told Goldston that he thought of the missing girls as "his children." She asked him how he believed the abductions occurred and he said one child was submissive, but another fought back against her assailant. Bindner added that he was "guessing" about the girls' reactions.
    Bindner wrote a letter to a law enforcement agency in the late 1980s, stating that he believed the next girl who would be abducted from the area would be about nine years old. Garecht disappeared shortly thereafter; she was nine at the time of her abduction. Bindner also sent a holiday card to a profiler for the Federal Bureau Of Investigation (FBI) in 1990. The card depicted an image of a young girl holding up four fingers. Campbell vanished in 1991 at the age of four.
    Search dogs traced Campbell and Swartz-Garcia's scent to Bugay's grave. Authorities never had enough evidence to prove Bindner was connected to their cases, although he was known for visiting the cemetery on occasion. Bindner was given a heroism award by the California State Patrol after assisting victims in the 1989 San Francisco earthquake. He has never been charged in connection with any of the cases.
    James Daveggio has been considered as a possible suspect as well. He and his former girlfriend, Michelle Lyn Michaud, were charged with the 1997 abduction, rape and murder of Vanessa Lei Swanson. Swanson's remains were discovered approximately five miles from the site of Jaycee Dugard's 1991 California abduction. Photos of Daveggio and Michaud are posted below this case summary. They were also charged with additional counts of sexual assault in unrelated cases in the mid-1990s. In 2002, Michaud and Daveggio were convicted of Swanson's murder and sentenced to death. They are awaiting execution. Michaud claims that she met Daveggio in 1996 and therefore was not involved in Dugard's abduction. There are striking similarities between Michaud and the female suspect in Dugard's case, but the FBI no longer believes she and Daveggio were involved. Daveggio is also considered a possible suspect in Swartz-Garcia and Garecht's disappearances. Neither he nor Michaud has been charged in connection with any of the cases. Misheloff remains missing and her case is unsolved. She enjoyed ice skating at the time she disappeared.

    There is no similarity between the 2. I would be very interested to hear also whether the witness to Michaelas abduction viewed Daveggios photo.

    Post Parents of missing teenager plan 19th annual walk, vigil

    DUBLIN: Couple hopes someone will remember something to help them find their daughter

    By Roman Gokhman STAFF WRITER

    Article Launched: 01/25/2008 07:04:47 AM PST

    Maddi and Mike Misheloff have lived the past 19 years one day at a time. There have been good days, for sure. There have been disheartening days. But that is not as important as the promise that each day has held.
    "We keep on hoping that this will be the day," Mike Misheloff said Thursday.
    Jan. 30 marks the 19th year since their 13-year-old daughter, Ilene, disappeared while walking home from school. And each day, they hope it will be the day she is found.
    Just as they have done every year to mark the day Ilene disappeared, the Misheloffs will lead a walk Jan. 30 from Wells Middle School, which Ilene attended, to St. Raymond's Church. The Misheloffs say it is not meant as a memorial, but as a message to the community that Ilene's parents have not given up hope.
    "People should realize we are still looking for Ilene, that there is a family that is still not whole," Mike Misheloff said. "If anybody has any information, they should call the Dublin Police Department."
    On Jan. 30, 1989, Ilene was walking home from school on Amador Valley Boulevard. She was last seen at 2:30 p.m. on her way to Dublin Iceland. She never showed up to her ice skating practice.
    Dublin police quickly ran out of clues in the case. There were no witnesses or evidence. Tips and leads have come in sporadically but have panned out.
    <snip>
    That's why the Misheloffs hold the two-mile walk each year. It's their belief that if residents know what's going on, they are more likely to talk about Ilene and maybe someone will remember something.
    During the years, the walk has attracted 100 or more people, and 50 or so meet the marchers at the church for the vigil.
    If remembering Ilene does not persuade someone to report what happened to her, authorities hope a $100,000 reward will help.
    Anyone with information about the case can call the police department at 925-833-6670 or leave tips at 800-763-6306. more at link:http://www.contracostatimes.com/news...nclick_check=1

    On Jan. 30, 1989, Ilene was walking home from school on Amador Valley Boulevard. She was last seen at 2:30 p.m. on her way to Dublin Iceland. She never showed up to her ice skating practice.
    Dublin police quickly ran out of clues in the case. There were no witnesses or evidence. Tips and leads have come in sporadically but have panned out.

    That's why the Misheloffs hold the two-mile walk each year. It's their belief that if residents know what's going on, they are more likely to talk about Ilene and maybe someone will remember something.
    During the years, the walk has attracted 100 or more people, and 50 or so meet the marchers at the church for the vigil.
    If remembering Ilene does not persuade someone to report what happened to her, authorities hope a $100,000 reward will help.
    Anyone with information about the case can call the police department at 925-833-6670 or leave tips at 800-763-6306. more at link:http://www.contracostatimes.com/news...nclick_check=1
