Michaela’s Story on Blog Talk Radio on February 11th

Michaela’s story will be featured on Monday, February 11th on a blog talk radio show. This show is conducted by Glendene Grant, who is the mother of Jessie Foster, missing from Las Vegas, Nevada, since 2006, and thought to be the victim of human trafficking. I’d spoken to Glendene about doing a show about Michaela after the lead about the UAE first surfaced, almost a year ago now. But at that time someone associated with a missing children’s task force had asked me to keep it quiet. However, it appears nothing has come of this task force, and I can’t keep quiet forever.

The time of this show is 5:30 p.m., but it is Pacific Standard Time. Here is the facebook post, and the link to it.

    Michaela was 9 years old when she was kidnapped on November 19, 1988, at approximately 10:15 a.m. in Hayward, California (San Francisco Bay Area). The location was at the corner of Mission Boulevard and Lafayette. At that time it was called Rainbow Market. Today it is Mexico Super.

    Michaela and her friend Trina had ridden their scooters to a local market to get some goodies. They had left their scooters by the side door of the market while they went in and purchased some candy and sodas and beef jerky. When they left the market, they started to walk home, completely forgetting that they had ridden the scooters there. Halfway across the parking lot they remembered, and turned back to get them.

    One of the scooters was not by the door where they’d left it. Michaela spotted it first, about three parking spaces down from the door, next to a car. She went to get it. As she bent over to pick it up, a man jumped out of the car next to the scooter, grabbed her from behind, and threw her screaming into his car as Trina watched in horror. He climbed in and started the car, drove out of the parking lot and took off driving erratically down the busy highway which is Mission Boulevard in Hayward. Trina ran into the store for help. The police were called.

    MESSAGE FROM SHARON: Michaela was my first child, the desire of my heart for over five years before she was born, finally conceived only with the assistance of a prescription for fertility pills. She was the first person to curl her little tiny hand around my fingers, and around my heart, the first one ever to call me “mommy.” Beautiful beyond measure, tender-hearted and compassionate, she was a living light in this world. Then she was gone.

    That was over 24 years ago. Join me tonight to talk with Michaela’s mom, Sharon.

  1. Sharon,Hopefully this will bring attention to someone out there who knows something. And yes, and you can't keep quiet forever. You never know when time may be of the essence in any given situation, and certainly in this situation, waiting longer is probably not going to help the task force.


  2. Sharon, I have to say that the way you've picked up where you left off, with so much energy and resolve, after all you've been through in the past couple of months is truly amazing. You're an inspiration – you really are. Cindy


  3. How can I listen to this from another country, is there a link perhaps? DIRECT LINK TO SHOW does not play anything, is it because it has not happen yet? My time is ten in the evening here 🙂


  4. I think it will be live at 5:30 pacific standard time, for the west coast of California. Not sure what time that is where you live, but sounds like around the middle of the night! According to the time tag on your comment you posted it at 1:20 p.m. Pacific Standard Time, so I'm thinking perhaps 2:30 a.m. your time?
