    TX - Michael Jefferson Adams, 18, Abilene, 8 June 1987

    In the late 80's or very early 90's, a young man (maybe 18-19 years old), gets off work late evening (I want to say he maybe worked at a supermarket) and arrives home. I can't remember if he came in the house or not. The father looks out the window and sees his son standing outside talking to someone in a car in front of the house/driveway. That's the last time the father sees him. The next morning they realize the son is missing.

    I'm trying to figure out this young man's name to see if the case was ever solved. I remember the father being interviewed on the program and it just broke my heart.

    TIA for any help!

    http://www.unsolved.com/

    This is the website for Unsolved Mysteries.
    There is a reshowing of the cases on Spike tv. In my area,
    only on late at night or weekend days.

    But it could lead you to your story.

    Sitcomsonline.com has television message boards and one is unsolved mysteries. There are A LOT of frequent and active UM fans who will probably know in a short time.

    It's an interesting board.

    Thanks for your reply! I have checked there, as well as the unsolved.com website and can't find anything in regards to this case. I couldn't find anything through google either! Hopefully someone in the cold case forum will remember! Thanks again!

    I found it!!! Someone over at sitcomsonline.com knew what case I was talking about when I started a thread about it! The episode I saw wasn't on Unsolved Mysteries but the show "Missing: Reward." The family was unable to get the case on "Unsolved Mysteries." I was mistaken about his Father seeing him through the window, it was his sister.

    The person is: Michael Jefferson Adams. He disappeared from Abilene, Texas on June 8, 1987.

    For those interested,
    Here is a link to the episode: http://www.findmikeadams.com/story.html

    Here is a link to his page on Charley Project: http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...s_michael.html


    Thanks again for all the help!

    Searching for answers to Adams' abduction

    24 years on, disappearance still a mystery

    By Brian Bethel

    On June 8, 1987, Michael Jefferson Adams vanished from Abilene.

    To this day, his father, Howard Adams, doesn't know what happened to his son, 18 at the time of his disappearance.

    "In the beginning, you go into a kind of a panic," he recalled. "You don't know what happened. But you know your son didn't just take off. You know that's not something he would just do."

    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    Missing Person Cold Case: Michael Adams

    Twenty-four years ago the disappearance of Michael Adams hit close to home for a lot of folks in the Abilene area.

    The night of June 8, 1987 is the last time anyone saw Michael. The 18 year-old Cooper High School graduate was working at "M System" grocery store before heading to Texas Tech in the fall.

    I grew up with Michael Adams sister in the Abilene area, they are still searching for answers. There is a formal website still set up for him, if you do a search for Michael Adams its easy to find. They are now showing signs of new leads even this many years later. They have never given up.

    The site for Michael Adams, presumably run by his family, is now down and has different content on it. I wonder what that means?

    Poor guy such a weird case too. How does someone just disappear like that? I wonder how accurate the sisters description of the car was and I wonder what happened to his supermarket co worker who had a car that matched the description of the one parked outside his house before he dissapeared ....

    Missing: Reward Michael Adams. The second link is a short update from 2009 about new Clues, Michael father also shares his opinion regarding to the new clues , an update which Sadly not led to finding Michael.

    My prayers for Michael and his family . 29 years without a closure
