    Manchester NH Police Press Release

    Missing Person

    Michael McClain, 29 of Manchester, New Hampshire was last seen around 2 am Sunday morning at Club Tropical in Nashua.

    Friends who had been out with him on Saturday night stated they looked for him, but couldn’t locate him. They also claimed McClain's car was still parked on Orange Street and they were unable to reach him by phone, so we are hopeful someone recognizes Micheal and contacts us.

    If anyone has any information as to McClain’s whereabouts call the Manchester Police Department at (603) 668-8711

    Here is a map of where the lounge is located (red mark) Orange Street, where his car was found, is NORTH of the lounge and the river. If walking to his car he would have had to cross the river on the bridge. That can be a recipe for disaster if he was intoxicated. Google Maps

    Michael McClain, 29, was last seen at the Tropical Lounge in Nashua when he apparently was involved in an altercation late Saturday night or early Sunday morning.

    According to police, he was separated from his friends after the disturbance broke out and was reported missing Monday morning by his roommate when he didn't come home to his apartment in Manchester.

    Eyewitnesses told Boston 25 News they last saw McClain inside a McDonalds near the club, apparently waiting for a ride.

    [...]

    "I guess an altercation with two women at the club," Edward said of the apparent incident. "Michael tried to break it up because he didn’t feel it was right, it got a little rowdy out there, everyone dispersed."

    Michael's family tracked his cell phone to the McDonalds where he was last seen. Along the way, his parents say Michael made a disturbing phone call to his manager.

    "Michael called her and said that somebody is chasing him, and he needs help," his mother said.

    Vigil to be held for missing Stamford native
    [...]

    The group is planning to meet at 7 p.m. in the school’s parking lot to share memories and pray for 29-year-old McClain’s safe return home. He graduated from the high school back in 2008.

    [...]

    McClain has lived in Manchester, N.H., for about seven years after going to college at Mt. Washington College — which ceased operations in 2016.

    On a missing poster from McClain’s family, they said there was trouble in the bar before he disappeared. The poster said there was a fight at the bar — that McClain wasn’t involved in — and when the crowd dispered, McClain was gone.

    His family says they hope he will come home soon and that they are grateful for the community's support at their vigil.

    “This can happen to anybody,” says EM, Michael’s father. “This is something that you read about and see in the papers, but you never think it would hit home. And when it does it home, you just don't know how to act."

    Very puzzling that he made a phone call to his boss after leaving the club saying he was being pursued.....why not call the friends he was with? I hope that LE interviewed everybody who was involved in the fight at the club....maybe there was some retribution afterwards that resulted from him breaking up the fight.

    Funny, as I am on this now, and it's set to private. I realize you posted this back in May, but kind of odd that it's locked down like this?

    The mobile FB link MikeNice McClain still works for me. But, if I take the "m." out of the address line to see the computer version (I always do this), all the posts disappear. Very strange.

    From the article:

    [...]

    McClain’s father, Edward McClain, said his son would never take off without letting anyone, especially his mother, know that he’s OK.

    [...]

    On Saturday, volunteers put up hundreds of posters in hopes of getting someone to come forward.

    [...]

    Frustrated with the information they've received so far from investigators, the family is pushing for someone in the public to come forward.

    [...]

    “You were with him. You have to know something. You can't say you don't know anything because that's impossible. If this is your friend, you need to go to the police and you need to tell them something,” she said.

    MJ added: “We want answers. That's all we want: answers. Whether he's coming back complete, whole to us or whether we have to give him the proper going away, we want Michael back, and we're not going to stop until we get him back.”

    Nashua police said it is an open and active investigation.

    Yes, odd, to call the manager and not (a) law enforcement, (b) friends, (c) family. Also, why was he waiting for a ride if he had a car? Why did his friends leave without him, if they knew his car was still there?

    I feel so bad for Mike and his family. From what I have read about him, he seemed like a wonderful guy.

    I didn't see this posted yet, so I figured I would now, to keep Mike's name out there:

    This is just so cruel to his poor family. I sincerely doubt that he just up and walked away and started a new life. This guy was clearly scared that night, from what I remember. Something to do with that fight that he broke up. I think we all probably can guess what happened to him, but the who did it is still out there living life while this man, in my opinion, is no longer with us. I think his family knows this, too.

    How sad! How can a person just disappear without any leads? He didn’t walk away. I can’t imagine his “friends” just ditching him. They say his car was still parked there. Did the police move it?
