      Martha I agree I’m so terrible sorry, and concerned. It’s just awful. I hadn’t seen Mike since Tucson, but I don’t forget all the time I spent with he and Sam in Germany and meeting Mike during his Training with Tony.

    Why did the wife wait 4 days to tell the family?? This definitely doesn’t sound right. Didn’t take his shoes?? But his wallet and phone are gone?? I would definitely call the media or a private detective or something. Is there even an update ?

    It’s so sad for all that love him and know him. All I know is to keep praying god brings him home. We pray for ya’ll.

    Why doesn’t the wife go on TV and plea for her husbands safe return, did they search the home, look for any traces of blood anywhere, what’s to say she didn’t harm if. If it was the wife missing the husband would be the first they would go after. Praying he is out there and safe.

    Do you have any idea why,if he left on his own he didn’t go prepared with money car credit cards clothes etc. If some are so sure he left on his own free will surely police and wife friends want him to have death certificate so they can move on. If he left on foot he should be easy found somewhere if a search party is conducted.

    4 days??? Your husband is missing for 4 days before you tell family very suspicious. I can’t fathom sitting around for 4 days not telling anyone my husband is gone
