This would be weird...could you imagine??


A Philadelphia man who was adopted as a child found himself on a missing person's website and ended up solving his own case.Steven Carter, a 35-year-old software salesman, was adopted from a foster home in Honolulu, Hawaii, when he was 4 years old.
In 2010, Carter browsed a missing children's website, MissingKids.com, for cases of children reported missing in Hawaii. He found an age-progression image that looked very similar to himself, created from a photograph of a baby named Marx Panama Moriarty Barnes.

Carter's adoptive mother, Victoria Carter, told ABC News he sent them the photograph right away."He called some friends and he called us and wanted everyone to look at this website," Victoria Carter said. "We all looked at it, and the timing was right. The birth date was one day different from his birthday. He looked very much like the baby from the few pictures we had of him when he was small. They recommended on the site that he call the police department in Honolulu, which he did.

"We provided the police with as much information as we had," she said. "Three months later they did a DNA test on him."Eight months later, it was confirmed that Steven Carter was Marx Panama Moriarty Barnes.

Wow, that's like that movie "Abduction" from last year:


Nathan, a teen, along with his friend, Karen finds a website that has photos of children who are missing or believed to have been abducted. They decide to age one of the photos and discover that is of Nathan as a child. He contacts the person who placed the photo to find out what's going on. The person on the other end only wants to know info about Nathan so Nathan hangs up. The person then contacts someone in Europe and shows him a photo of the one who called. He then heads for the U.S. Nathan then wonders is it true, was he abducted. He tells his "mom" who then tells him she and his "father" will tell him. But before they can, two men claiming to be cops show up wanting to talk to Nathan, and when he isn't found they pull guns and demand Nathan be given to them. His parents fight them but are killed. Nathan runs but remembers that he asked Karen to come over...

I might have to watch that - an interesting premise.

Anyone ever watched "Deep End of the Ocean" with Michelle Pfifer

I will have to rent this one,sounds very action packed...the added bonus being my that daughter would love me if I brought home a flick starting Taylor Lautner. Maybe I could get her to wash my car out of gratitude afterward. :)

That's amazing.

They're looking for Ethan Patz again, I remember so many years ago when he went missing.
