    Is there any other information on him? Where he worked, who the two men were? I looked and couldn't find anything. I live near the neighborhood he disappeared in.

    I can't speak for what Kensington was like in the 70s, but the Kensington I know in Philly is a very unfortunate neighborhood well known for it's crime.

    I wish there was more information.

    Anyone know where in Kensington he lived? Maybe it was Fishtown and not Kensington...

    That kid was 14 years old. Why was he working? And it is not even legal in Pennsylvania to work at that age.

    I was about to suggest that maybe Joseph Kallinger could be responsible-but it looks like he was in jail by the time Michael disappeared.

    He looks a lot younger than 14 yrs old in his photograph. Is it his most reason picture prior to his disappearance?

    I think you can work before the age of 16, but you have to have work papers to do so.

    I think 14 may be too young to obtain working papers. Wait, I just checked and found that you COULD get working papers at 14, but you were limited in that at the age of 14 or 15, you couldnÂ’t work in a factory.
