    Something about the suspects for Russell John Mort's abduction (Doe Network Case File 198DMNY) has always nagged at me. They looked familiar. Then I saw another thread for Jacee Dugard

    http://www.angelfire.com/mi3/mpccn/dugard.html

    and I think Michaud and Deveggio look like the Mort suspects. Russell Mort was abducted in 1982; the woman wanted for questioning was described in her early-20s.

    In 1991 Michelle Michaud was in her early-30s, so the ages match up.

    And I think they look alike. Does anyone else see a resemblance? Where was Michelle Michaud during those time periods?

    Interesting. They really do resemble each other. The only things that jump out at me to refute this theory are that the abductions occurred on opposite ends of the country (but it's not impossible for them to have traveled that far) and that Michaud and Daveggio's earlier victims were female (again, not impossible that they would abduct a male, either). Apparently the FBI has a timeline of Michaud's whereabouts during the 1980s/1990s (according to MPCCN) - I wonder where she was in 1982?

    I wonder if this man could actually be Russell:
    http://www.tonawanda-news.com/story.asp?id=3341

    I wonder what his adoptive parents have to say about all this?! Could they be the abductors, or did they buy him a black market type situation? I doubt he actually is Russell, but it would be so wonderful to have an ending to this situation. I can't imagine how much Ruth Mort is hurting... It will be crushing if it turns out this man is not her son!

    First, I emailed the Niagra police regarding Deveggia/Michaud, but my email was returned as undeliverable. How do you submit a tip into Doe Network? I did that once awhile ago, and I never heard back from them, one way or the other.

    Second, has there been any news about this man who claims to be Mort? I'm dying to know. It would be wonderful, but a few months ago there was a man they thought might be Jacob Wetterling, and it turned out to be a dead end.

    Whatever happened with the man who claimed to be Russell Mort? I read somewhere that they were testing his DNA against the family's DNA, but that was months ago. Is there new news?

    Yes. I read an article sometime afterwards that the DNA tests came back and he is not Russell Mort. Sorry I don't have a link.

    I think the people who took Russell are the same people who took Wallace Guidroz.
    Look at the suspects on Morts case.
    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/198dmny.html

    Look at the suspects in The Guidroz case,
    http://www.childfindofamerica.org/Stranger Abduction Posters/2573 S_Guidroz/Guidroz_W.pdf

    Same couple to me.What do you think? But I want to know is The suspects in Guidro case had a little girl with them .who is the little girl? Did they steal her too or could it be their own child?

    Russell Mort goes missing May 5th. 1982
    Wallace Guidro goes missing JANUARY 10, 1983
    8 month difference.I think the dates have something to do with it ,there has to be a pattern someplace.

    Also..the car In Russell suspected kidnapping was a 1965 or older corvette. Every corvette that was made, was made w/o a backseat. No place to put a car seat and July 1984, New York State passed the first mandatory seat belt law. So, in 1982 it was still legal to have the child sit on your lap while driving in a car.
    Both of Russell Mort's parents are in their 70's now And I would love more than anything for Russell to be reunited with them. Lets make this the year we sleuth and bring Russell home. I believe he was stolen then sold to a couple who could not have children.I do not believe he wandered off and fell in the water.I have been to the trailer park and I saw where they lived. The first picture in the photo is similar to the lock that was on the gate. It only opened one way and lil Russell could not open it from the outside of the gate. https://www.hardwareworld.com/LokkL...ch-V6203-pKZQZVB.aspx?source=cashbackshopping.

    I agree the suspects in both cases are eerily similiar looking. It's very possible they are the same couple.

    Only problem is, the "suspects" in Wallace Guidroz's case are more than likely made up. Wallace's dad admitted to killing him.

    "WHEATFIELD, NY - The hearts of a nation were raised earlier this week, when three kidnapped women, some of whom had spent more than a decade in torturous captivity, were rescued in Cleveland.

    But the news may have touched one Western New York family more than others.

    A family whose loved one has been missing for more than three decades.

    When she heard of the incredible news from Cleveland, Ruth Mort's heart skipped with a beat of joy.

    "Especially for those families," Mort told WGRZ-TV. "Statistics normally state they (the missing women) would have expired," she said.

    The rescue of the Cleveland women came 31 years and one day, after Mort's 2-1/2 year old son Russell went missing from where the family lived in a trailer park on River Road. Despite an all out effort by police and volunteers to find him, he was never seen again.

    Thursday the FBI announced a new effort to find Russell. They&#8217;re asking anyone who has information about or photos of Lynch Park to contact them. Authorities hope to reconstruct the park as they search for clues to Russell&#8217;s disappearance.

    Below is a photo of Lynch Park from 1993. Russell's home is marked by a yellow star:

    [​IMG]

    Russell was born September 4, 1979. He has light brown hair and dark brown eyes. He was 3-feet tall and weighed around 30 pounds when he was disappeared. His top left front tooth was chipped, he had a small mark on his left cheekbone resembling a wart, and a tiny cleft in his chin.
