    Is there any other information on him? Where he worked, who the two men were? I looked and couldn't find anything. I live near the neighborhood he disappeared in.

    I can't speak for what Kensington was like in the 70s, but the Kensington I know in Philly is a very unfortunate neighborhood well known for it's crime.

    I wish there was more information.

    That kid was 14 years old. Why was he working? And it is not even legal in Pennsylvania to work at that age.

    I was about to suggest that maybe Joseph Kallinger could be responsible-but it looks like he was in jail by the time Michael disappeared.

    He looks a lot younger than 14 yrs old in his photograph. Is it his most reason picture prior to his disappearance?
