Sorry if this is the wrong place for it, but it seemed that the California forums were more appropriate than any others. This post is taken from the DORBA forums, my local Dallas group forum. I'm just passing it along for the original poster.
friend, customer, and McKinney resident has been missing since April 13.
I received a call today that made my heart sink. Mike is an avid dirt rider. An extremely aggressive competitor and truly loves the sport. Below are the links to the sites that have all the news reports on the search in California for him. His Kleins are sitting in the corporate apartment so they know he did not just ride off to clear his head. There are many people that touch our lives, and Mike was one of those guys that when he walked into the shop, he lit it up with his 100mph personality, just like his attack on the trail. He is a great inspiration, sharing all his riding stories, face it who doesn't want to share their experiences. This is a guy that would have to walk out of a trail, carrying his bike, with broken bones somewhere.
I hope after reading this you keep his family here in McKinney in your prayers as they wait for any word on his whereabouts.
Also if you have anyone in your network, or riding community, that live in the Ridgecrest or Sacramento or anywhere in between...I would hope you will forward this information on to them. I have sent the articles to our shops in Sacramento and they are posting on their riding sites.
They are needing all the help they can get to find him. One of the pictures in the articles shows him when he left McKinney standing by his car that he made his trip. I am keeping close touch with friends of his family and will give updates when I have them.
