    Even with all the stuff he did, I do not believe that a 9 year old boy can stay gone that long without help. I think something bad happened to him.

    When I first saw this I couldn't believe it! I was expecting this to be an older child, not a 9 year old! I wonder if someone who knew about his home situation kidnapped him to give him a better chance at life? I don't think he could've lived on his own but who knows, he seems like a pretty tough kid.

    Panhandling and being on the streets is like an invitation to a child molester. Someone could have paid him money for a fake job with a true intention of sexually abusing him.

    I am shocked he smoked and drank and had been in trouble at only 9. Too bad it was not reported before he went missing. Or that it was reported and nothing done.

    Kids like this sadden me so much. It sometimes seems to outsiders that if their own family dont value them then why should anyone else? And half the time its their circumstamnces that have made them the tough way they have been.

    What exactly is panhandling?

    Shawn Hornbeck disseappered while riding his bike and the bike was never located either*. I'm sorry I can't remember where that all took place. Was Micheal Devlon (?) looked into?

    *I know that doesn't mean much but it was a thought I had.

    he does look troubled but i dont think he looks as bad as the neighbors claim.

    i wondedr if the slander they put against him is a cover for someone in the neighborhood that did something to him.

    and im sure with such glowing reports about him LE didnt exactly break down doors looking for him

    I wonder if Kenneth Parnell was ever looked at for this disappearance? He was out of prison by 1992, and while he initially settled in Bakersfield he tended to move around California alot.

    Is there any way to find out if he was in San Bernardino county when this child disappeared?

    So sad that a vulnerable little boy can just vanish!

    It's peculiar. And another report is that he was seen riding away from the home on his bike. Was he seen with someone as well?
