Naturally *sigh* there are contradictions..this article states he was last seen by a mailman who saw him in his living room. He was also supposed to start a new job. http://www.pressofatlanticcity.com/1...ry/430692.html

Update

http://www.pressofatlanticcity.com/n...bdc923698.html

The below paragraph is respectfully snipped from the above link:

John Weisbecker asked his mother, Jennifer Powell, to pick up some new shirts for his seasonal job that was to begin the next day.

A few hours later, at about 11 a.m., a postal carrier saw Weisbecker when he delivered the day's mail, including Weisbecker's unemployment check.

Powell tried to call her son at about noon from her job in Vineland but his cell phone went straight to voicemail. When she came home at about 8:30 p.m. after work and a trip to the store, he was gone.

His car, a Lincoln LS, was parked outside. His unemployment check was sitting in an uncharacteristically messy pile of mail on the counter. The kitchen stools seemed pushed out of place, too. But nothing else in the home hinted at anything out of the ordinary, Powell said. By midnight, when he still had not returned, Powell called police.

Also from the same link provided above...makes me wonder if there were some serious money problems b/c why would his car be repoed in just 3 months? Why wouldn't his parents just pay the car payment in case their son was found alive? He'd need a car to get around, right? Are we missing something? Below is the snippet:

Weisbecker apparently had his wallet and cell phone when he left the Second Street house. But he has not used the phone. His car was repossessed in the months after his disappearance.

John W, from the news articles, appears to not have any major issues.
He was starting a new job. He just got an unemployment check. LE says
no warrants.
He lived at home with his mom and sister.
He was seen at 11am by the postman. He did not answer his cell at 12pm., it went to voice mail.
His mom said that the mail was in a messy pile, not its usual way.
Kitchen stools seemed out of place.
His car was there.
Per his parents, he would not walk to a local convenience store, he would only drive.
So,
considering all this. Granted, it is not a lot to go on:

Did someone visit him at the house that day?
Did a neighbor see a car parked there?
Most likely disappeared between 11am and noon.

The most likely questions have to be asked:
Most problems are linked to drugs or money or jealousy.

1. Did the police fingerprint the house?
2. Did the police spray luminol for any blood evidence?
3. Was the computer checked? Was he on any web sites that information could be obtained?
4. Did he just break up with someone?
5. Would he have sold drugs, just to friends? Weed?
6. What do his best friends have to say?
7. What did he do the day before he disappeared?

Still missing; vigil

http://www.shorenewstoday.com/news.php?id=6181

3 Dec 09

Nine long months after he went missing, friends and family of John Weisbecker hope a Dec. 11 candlelight vigil will help light the way home for the 21-year-old Ocean City man.

The smiling six-foot chef was ready to return to work at Kessel’s; he planned to go to culinary school in the fall. On the day he went missing, Weisbecker left his car and his paycheck at the house where he lives with his mother and sister. He disappeared without a trace not long after sending his mother out to buy him a few new shirts.

at the risk of stating the obvious, and dreamweaver was pretty thorough, you would hope the police or the family would have obtained the cell phone records. I mean they send a bill every month with every incoming and outgoing call itemized so there is no subpoena involved in getting the numbers.

I would have started with noon that day and worked back to see what each person in sequence had to say about their last conversations.

What a good article.

And what a shame that he is still missing.

A one hour window 11am to 12pm that he disappeared.

Just a thought or two: IMO
I know they say he was a great guy, but even great guys might
have been buying a little weed for personal consumption.
IMO: Could be he owed money or was upset over the quality of something he purchased?
or
IMO: Could be he got involved with the wrong girl? Someone who had a jealous ex?
IMO: Something he got in the mail spooked him. He called that person. They came over. They left. And something happened to him.

Prayers for John and his family.

'snipped from previous link'
Police in Ocean City reached out for help from the New Jersey State Police and the FBI, which brought their missing-persons expertise to bear on the case. Weisbecker's DNA and physical description were entered into the FBI's National Crime Information Center.
Detectives in Ocean City work the case every day, Lt. Steven Ang said.
"We're retracing our steps, going back over everything we've done from Day One," Ang said. "We re-interviewed some people. We try to make sure we haven't missed anything or overlooked anything from the beginning."

So, the police dept. even asked the FBI to step in.

John Weisbecker's mother still dusts his bedroom to keep it looking like it did March 11, ready to live in should her son walk through the door.
The young man's clothes are in the hamper. The bed is made. His sneakers sit on the front porch, where he left them.
Jennifer Powell lives with the agony of uncertainty.
Nine months after Weisbecker's disappearance, family and police have no idea what happened to the 21-year-old seasonal cook who aspired to become a chef.

So what were the cell phone records results?
If he had his phone on him were there any attempts at finding a "ping"?

A few things..
I read the shirt he was last seen wearing had the word "SEEDLESS" on the front. Is that a name brand? It sounds like a weed reference. Also, it says he "sent" his mother out to buy him shirts. It almost sounds like he was maybe trying to get her out of the house for some reason, like someone was coming over (a dealer?). Just a thought.

Authorities say missing Ocean City man left with more than one person

Special Agent Joe Furey said investigators believe that Weisbecker disappeared under suspicious circumstances shortly before noon on Wednesday, March 11, 2009. Furey said that evidence from Weisbecker’s residence indicates that more than one person was likely involved in his disappearance and more than one person likely has information that could facilitate his recovery.

The FBI also believes that Weisbecker was likely familiar with the people who caused his disappearance, and the people involved are likely familiar with the Cape May County area, Furey said.

“There have been several people who have been hesitant to cooperate with the investigation,” he said.

SEVERAL people hesitant to cooperate? Geez. Well, hopefully with these people someone will talk, they almost always do. The more people involved, the better the chance someone will blab or be caught in some way. **fingers crossed**

Edit: http://www.seedlessclothing.com/
I dont know about trying to get his mother out of the house, Ive asked my mother to go buy things such as shorts, socks, whatever just because I didnt like shopping. Of course your scenario could be exactly right. I do think you could be onto something with the drugs though, especially looking at the shirt with seedless on it, Im not sure what else that could reference. Im not saying John was involved in drugs for sure, but there have been many kidnappings such as this when related to drugs. Victims that had debt to dealers or he may have been known to have money or drugs that people could want, and we know his bank account wasnt touched. That scares me into believing someone or someones may have wanted to hurt the kid. The stools being out of place may sounds like some people were sitting in them and didnt move them back when they got up. Unless they were out of place in a way that looked as if a struggle took place.

I would think LE would be able to find out if John was involved with drugs in any way. But if people are afraid of talking who knows. I find it hard to imagine his family wouldnt know or have suspicioun of possible drug use considering he lived with his mom and sister, Id be surprised if they didnt know. And Im sure they would tell LE. I havent heard anything about drug use though. Keep hope alive, until he's found he very well could be alive and well.

My thoughts are with the family, I pray he's found and in good condition.
