Volunteers needed to help post missing flyers for missing Michael McClain, 29
By: LostNMissing Inc
McClain disappeared after a night out with friends from the "Tropical Lounge" in Nashua, NH on April 20 in Nashua. Surveillance cameras captured him at the Nashua McDonald's in the early morning hours and witnesses stated he appeared to be waiting for a ride. It is not known by whom and he has not been seen since.
McClain's parents say their son, nicknamed "NiceMike" by many has been working with autistic children at the non-profit Easter Seals in Manchester since he graduated with a bachelor's degree in criminal justice. A Stamford, CT native, McClain has lived in Manchester the past 7 years after attending the now closed Mt. Washington College. His family says his disappearance is highly out of character.
"This is a dream, a nightmare," said Edward McClain, Michael's father, about the state the family is in. "And we are just hoping we can wake up from this. Mike would never intentionally not make contact with his family, nor friends."
According to his family, trouble occurred at the Nashua bar before McClain disappeared. "A fight took place that he was not involved in and when the crowd dispersed, he was gone," the family said on a missing person poster which also read, "Friends waited 45 minutes and drove back to Manchester, N.H., without him." It was reported at some time that early am he sent a text believing he was being followed.
McClain has brown eyes, but wears green contact lenses. At the time missing, he had braids in his hair and stands 5 feet, 10 inches tall. He also has tattoos on his hands and arms. His family will be available for media interviews following the event and an awareness rock painting will also be held.
Anyone who has any information on McClain's whereabouts can contact Manchester, N.H., police at 603-668-8711 or the Nashua Police Criminal Investigation Division at 603-594-3500. Case #19-26944. You may request to remain anonymous. See http://lostnmissing.org/
