I feel like I'm getting close to an answer that will lead to resolution in a matter of weeks.
I believe you are alive. And I believe I know where you went. Who you traveled with. And how you got there.
The only reason I have to find you, personally, is to show this community of concerned people that you are alive and well and they should focus on other mysteries. Frankly, I don't care about the hundreds of thousands of dollars of taxpayer money that have been spent trying to find you. I don't care about the charges you face in Mass.
I don't see any reason to invade your privacy any more that it already has been. I do not care to share your location with the family and friends you have written out of your life (for good reason).
All we ask is for proof of life. You can send it anonymously. If we can see that you are alive and well, the search can end here and the well-meaning internet armchair sleuths can move on to cases of real missing people whom they can actually help.
I truly hope you've found a better life.
