    This poor guy has had a hard life. His mother “mysteriously” disappeared when he was but 2 years old. Check out the story of Joan Risch who disappeared in 1961 from Lincoln,Mass. It is a very sad story.

    jmo01830, thank you for the information, there is a Wikipedia page about his mom. Such a sad and mysterious story. I hope David is found safe right away.

    I am so glad he was found. I have followed his mom’s case for several years now. I don’t know what happened to David, but I hope he will be getting the help he needs. His sister lives out in Washington state, I believe.
