    NJ - Mark Joseph Himebaugh, 11, Del Haven, 25 Nov 1991

    KYW news (philly) reported that they added Mark's case to the list of possible victims of Jack Colin. They just searched Colin's house the other day... Colin used to drive from/to work past the spot where they believe Mark was abducted...

    KYW hasn't posted the news story as of yet... it was somewhat breaking news.

    Here is the earlier story (before Mark) http://kyw.com/Local%20News/local_story_349125030.html

    Himebaugh disappearance still haunts 15 years later

    By BRIAN IANIERI Staff Writer, (609) 463-6713
    (Published: November 25, 2006)
    MIDDLE TOWNSHIP — Fifteen years ago today, a freckle-faced boy disappeared from his neighborhood, leaving behind only a white sneaker and the memories of an 11-year-old who has never grown up.

    Nov. 25, 1991, was the last time Mark Himebaugh was seen.

    Each year since has been a year without an answer.

    But his mother's eyes brighten and moisten with talk of a son who wouldn't swat a bumblebee in the house, but would capture it in a glass and set it free outside.

    Maureen Himebaugh uses this date to do something positive and enjoy life with the memory of her son, she said.

    “I'm ready for an answer. But I've also accepted that I may go to my grave and not know,” she said Friday from her home, where marsh reeds across the street blow in the wind.

    “I just want an answer. That's all.”

    She isn't alone.

    “We're still looking for that one piece of information that might be out there that could close this case,” said Middle Township police Capt. Scott Webster, who 15 years ago was a patrolman assigned to the juvenile division.

Himebaugh had received permission from his mother to watch as firefights fought a small brush fire which had broken out near the family's home. His mother left to run an errand and was held up in traffic for 40 minutes; upon her arrival home, she saw that Himebaugh did not return to the residence. She assumed he was playing with several neighborhood children; the child has never been heard from again.
    Investigators did learn that Himebaugh may have been seen entering a nearby park with an unidentified female child at approximately 3:40 PM; however, this report has never been confirmed.
    Extensive air and ground searches by authorities uncovered his left shoe, which has located approximately 75 yards from his house. No other evidence has been discovered in this case.

    How strange that the little girl never came forward as if she lived locally her family must have known that the boy had gone missing. Very strange that one of his shoes was found like that...

    Would this be Thanksgiving Day of 1991? I wonder if they had High School football games in the area. Just a thought....

    His mother and police remain confident he could still be alive, and they want the world to see what he would look like now.

    Perhaps the child's family didn't want to get her involved in a police investigation. Or maybe she was frightened by all the talk about the case around town, and didn't tell anyone of her part in the story.

    I'm guessing Mark lost his shoe in a struggle.

    My instincts were that this little girl was probably used to get Mark to go along with her. Luring a child with another child. Also I didn't know his left foot was sprained. They found his left sneaker. No doubt the poor boy lost it in the struggle, but could it be he had taken it off because his foot was hurting? I've prayed for this boy for years after seeing his adorable face on billboards on the way to the Jersey shore. All these years have passed. There is always hope though.

    Still No Trace of Mark Himebaugh 16 Years Later
    mark himebaugh | 3 hours 36 min ago | Comments 0
    By Al Campbell

    DEL HAVEN — Since Nov. 25, 1991, millions have seen Mark Himebaugh’s photo, now age-enhanced to show a red-haired, 27-year-old, but with that same beguiling, freckled grin his mother last saw shortly before 4 p.m. that day.

    The 16-year-old case, considered a “non-family abduction,” continues to perplex Middle Township Police, N.J. State Police and the FBI.

    Himebaugh’s image has appeared on Fox-TV’s “America’s Most Wanted,” on countless milk cartons and billboards, and his case has been entered into the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

    To this day, no trace, other than Mark’s left sneaker, has been found, and that was about 75 yards from his Sun Ray Beach Road home.

    On that same fateful day, there was a massive marsh fire across the street from the Himebaughs’ house.

    All they found was footprints and his hand-me-down LA Gear sneaker above the high tide line along the bay.

    This makes me wonder if he was thrown into the water. He grew up along the water, which makes me think he knew how to swim and wouldn't have just fallen in. But if someone subdued him and then put him in, he would have had less of a chance of surviving.
