  8. I’m in Lee’s jewich youth group, bbyo (b’nai brith youth organization). I’ve seen him every week for the past year until a week ago. I wasn’t very close with him, but almost all of my friends were, including my brother. Its so hard to deal with this….I hope we find him soon. I just wanna say, the rumors about him are almost all true. I know its hard to know what to beleive when you do not have an inside source but one, I am very close with Lee’s grlfriend and they did not break up before he left. NO ONE is quite sure why he left. But he was not going to see anyone and he was not going to leave anyone. Please do not spread information around if you are not ABSOLUTELY POSITIVE that its true. im so sick of hearing these rumors…

  10. Beth, Barry and Carl,
    Just want you to know that our thoughts are with you at this most difficult time. Please, please call us if you need us. This is absolutely unbelievable. I refuse to believe the worst. We were in such shock when we heard. Lee visited us about a year ago- he really wanted to visit with Matt. I think Matt is really taking this hard.Beth, I want to call you, but I don’t know what to say…

  11. I graduated from Stevenson in ’03 and have been following the story closely. My thoughts and sympathy are with his parents, friends, and the whole SHS community.
    Maybe this (presumed) tragedy can be used as a learning experience, as a reminder to remain vigilant and to educate about mental health.

    As a sidenote, I don’t know the process that led to the story being included on Nancy Grace’s show, and I appreciate the urgency of the situation, however, I don’t think anyone should support such a shameless media opportunist devoid of journalistic integrity.

  13. I saw the movie “Into the Wild” this weekend, and the similarities to this case were so eerily similar, that it did make me wonder if this young man perhaps saw this movie or read the book, and decided to do as the man in the movie, and to disappear and make a new life for himself.

  14. Nicole, the students did read “Into the Wild” as required reading over the summer, and that was my sons first impression – that Lee wanted to do what he’d read. The longer he’s missing, the more concerned everyone is. Our prayers and thoughts are with Lee, his family and friends. We pray her returns safely soon.

You really do mean the world to me Lee, and I miss you Peter Pan, so so much. I know you’ll defy all the aweful things people have to say, and show us a miracle that you’re still here, because thats what you do, you suprise peolpe at the most random of moments. Like hah, you aske dme to homecoming and I was jsut a silly freshman and i hardly knew you, and to me even then you’re were a stunning being, and im sorry for putting you through months of not being able to see each other b/c of being grounded, but for the times we did spend together, they were the best dear. The best of all times, this summer was purely Neverland in itself. For wherever you are, I love you, and I’ve never said that to anyone and meant it the way I do with you. I miss you so much Lee.

  21. I certainly don’t know anybody on this page, but I thought I’d share the first idea that popped into my head when I first saw the news report on t.v.

    I don’t mean any offense, only to share a possibility; one uncommon, but certainly a reality for some.

    I agree with the folks on this page (some who seem to know Lee) that he may have gone off to start a new life. And it probably has nothing to do with anybody who knew, but with who he wanted to be. I ask only to give rise to the possibility…but not to accuse or assume anything…but is it possible Lee is really a Leah now?

    For those who know him…this may sound ridiculous, or it may spark a few connections, but please do not think I mean to cause any harm. I only wish to bring up the possibility that he may have actually been more like a she, and the only way ‘she’ would be accepted is by people who don’t know ‘him’.

    I don’t speak from experience, only from knowing it’s possible.

    So what do those who know him think of this possibility?

I really hope he’s some where out there and I hope he knows that pain he causing everyone so he can come home.

  27. You people are running down a rabbit hole. The police aren’t going to look and anyone who knows where Lee is probably won’t tell. He was an adult (over 18) when he left and is old enough to not be considered a “missing child” anymore. “Katie”, shown above on Feb, 2008, said the cops don’r seem to care – I don’t blame them. Unless it is obviously a crime scene, or he is wanted for some other crime, they don’t legally have a reason to look for him. I am sure the freinds and family would like to know what happened, but Lee is on his own.

    Like

  28. Lee is an adult legally, but he needs to grow up. It’s alright to want to take control of ones own life, but to do so you must ask to be released.

    When Lee left without a word he kept those who care about him most tied to him wondering, until such time as Lee takes control and stops running.

    If Lee wants to be in control of only his life, then he needs to release those who are tied to him.

    Lee needs to let those who at least brought him into this world for right or wrong know that he is ok, and in control.

  29. I just watched the show “Disappeared” on ID Discovery. I don’t really know what to think. Part of me feels like he did kill himself. But in other aspects, maybe he really just wanted to do his own thing. I do believe the police need to go back to the creek/river area in WI & search again. Too many things say suicide. With that many prayers & best wishes to his family. I truly hope I’m wrong & he does turn up.

    Like

  30. I saw Disappeared on ID just last night, and I honestly can’t believe that they wouldn’t have found his body by now if he’d been in the river… Yet I can’t believe that no one would have reported a sighting of him if he’s still alive… just seems crazy that neither lead has gone anywhere. I really hope that his family can find some closure on the matter and that they are coping after all this time.

  31. The boy killed himself. It doesn’t take a genius to know that. His body is most likely in the river, washed down ten miles or so from his belongings.

    If he was still alive, SOMEONE would have seen him.

And I know the family has got to be stuggleing. He seemed to be a very nice and good kid. Ive told my church to be praying for him even tho it was a couple of years ago. Im praying for him. The reason im into stuff like this is because my little sister went missing and she wasnt found until 11 years later her name is haley and. i love her to death i miss her very much im not allowed to see her. But i just know what you guys are going threw and i just wanted to let you know that im praying for him and you family and freinds.

  36. Wow some of you people are really heartless, yea the boy is old enough to go off and do whatever but F.Y.I that boy had a loving relationship with his family I dont think he would have ran off and decided to never ever contact his family, i honestly do not think the GF would be like oh I know where he is but I wont say , come on people Im sure this mom and gf didnt go on the discovery channel and search the world just for fame, obviously that boy was hurting inside and even i dont have to know some one to obviously understand that , hello who out there took the time to talk to him more then once and try to truly understand how he felt by the story it looks like no one, ok second of all lee ran off and left clues of meds as if he died and then they saw him on camera alive at some wal-mart or whatever and so if you ask me either he made it look like a fake suicide or if he was taking those meds to get high and it mess with the chemicals in his body let alone embalanced his thinking and push his depression further he could have went off and hich hike and changed his name and went far away and continued to his addicton and he could be homless for all we know but u cant judge if a person is dead or alive by just saying oh if he was alive some one would have saw him Bull S**** lots of people dissapear and lots could be alive they can change there looks there name and be far away no one always pays attention to news the world is not all searching for lee if they were they would him weather alive or not either way instead of bashing lee and what happen to him , have a heart pray for him and think of how u would feel if that happen to your child think befor u speak

  37. If his pants were in the river and his wallet and his keys, are the police absolutely sure he wasn’t also in there. Did he have a spare pair of pants? The alternative would be that a half-clothed man would have been on foot and why would he also put his wallet in the river?

  38. I really don’t want to say this however, my own best friend disappeared this way and regrettably was found dead 1200 miles away from home. This happened almost 15 years ago. My friend shared many of the same traits as Lee, including a introverted personality, attraction to drugs, mostly driven by social anxiety. Ironically, the items found with my friend were an empty bottle of Southern Comfort and an empty bottle of ephedrine, which has similar effects as the Coricidrin found with Lee. I have given this a lot thought and I have come to the conclusion that as inward as Lee was protrayed, I just don’t believe that he had the inner will to fake his own disappearance. People that are troubled don’t usually have the inner fortitude, focus, and resolution to take on such an endeavor. Lee wasn’t running from real consequence such as divorce, financial troubles, the law. Furthermore, Lee was unprepared. Almost all the evidence points to short term thinking. I hate to say it, but I believe Lee is in the Baraboo river. May God be with him.

  39. Just saw Lee’s story on “dissapeared” on YouTube. I agree with most of you that he killed himself and that the river took his body far away. How many times does police overlook bodies that are in sight? Lots of times.. My heart aches for his mom, who still believes that he is somewhere in this world. I wish she was right, but hopefully his remains will be found someday and his mom will have closure in her heart, although the grief and pain will never go away. Living in fear and insecurity is awful, worse than knowing what really happened to him.

  40. Who came up with the stupid idea of having male teens read “Into the Wild?” Life is up & down at that age enough as it is. Then everyone wonders why the suicide rate is up. And if the group above that identifies as HS students at his HS is a representative bunch of English students, close the department.
