Unless someone else has a really good explanation for the first post I made, I have no doubt he is alive. There is much more to this than was published by media and I knew Mike quite well, although I guess not well enough to see the signs he was getting ready to disappear. But some things happened in retrospect that began to make sense as to why he might have left. I believe he does not want to be found and is most likely living as someone else. And to me, Mike fits the bill for someone who could pull this off.
