    Endangered Missing

    Missing From: Lincoln, Illinois

    Missing Since: December 31, 1975

    Michael, a Lincoln College student, was last seen on December 31, 1975. Around 2:00 pm on New Year's Eve 1975, he received a phone call, put on his coat and walked out the door, telling his parents he was visiting a friend in nearby Arlington Heights.

    This was six days before he was to testify against Russell Smrekar, a former Lincoln College student, who was convicted of murder. One person he murdered was a clerk who saw Smrekar steal two steaks from a local grocery store, and he was prepared to testify at Smrekar’s shoplifting trial. Smrekar is also believed to be responsible for the disappearance of Ruth Martin, who was to be a minor witness in the trial. Both Martin and Mansfield are presumed to have been killed by Smrekar, although their bodies were never found.
