    i was reading the most current article in the columbian newspaper van. wa, ie; sammy’s mother training dogs to be anchors for autistic children, so i decided to look up some of the news articles on sammy’s disappearance at crater lake. i read several articles, and discovered that there are actually two different versions of sammy’s intial disappearence given by his father. the first one that i came across said that sammy went to play hide and seek and disappeared over a rocky slope not far from the father’s car. the second account given by sammy’s father was, that him and his son sammy decided to go for a hike up at crater lake and that sammy ran off into the woods and that he was unable to find his son. here’s another mind boggling detail- 2 hours passed before sammy’s father decided to contact the authorities for help regarding sammy’s disappearence. when i kept on reading different news articles, i also discovered that at the time of year, that, sammy went missing- the temperatures at crater lake and the amount of snow that can fall are quite extreme, and, the overall terrain of crater lake is quite dangerous if you were to get lost there, especially at night at the onset of winter-with this being said, why then, would you ever even think of taking your autistic, 8 year old son for a hike in such a remote and extreme place?at this time of year???? then i went on to read that sammy was very reactive to bright lights and certain loud noises- so i thought that maybe thats why sammy’s father took him there at that time of day and that time of year-, because of the parks vast remoteness which would make it very quiet and peaceful in a way, i guess? the entire story of this poor little 8 year boy just disappearing into never never land, it just doesn’t make sense. neither of his parents really seemed to have that deep rooted sadness that a parent has when their child goes missing- i dont know either one of them, but, i felt this aweful sick feeling when i started to investigate sammy’s story, and, from all of things that i read regarding his disappearence and the actual accounts given by his father and then for his mother not to question any of this? maybe i haven’t read enough articles. i don’t know, i do know one thing for sure though- and, it is that there is something so very suspicious about this entire story that it is just unbelievable that the authorities, the newspapers, the news stations, none of them mention foul play at all. come on if you read each article from 0ct. 14th, 2006 to 0ct. 21st, 2006, and further, you can clearly see that things do not add up, that there is definitely very suspicious circumstances surrounding this entire story. somebody needs to do a little more research into all of the details of sammy boehlke’s disappearence- we can at least give sammy the respect and dignity that he deserves by telling the world the truth about what really happened to him! just ask yourself- how in the world does an autistic child just slip away from a parent in a remote wooded, rocky national park at an extremely high elevation, on a very cold night…….. vanishes……. poof…… just like that. his father just lets sammy run off into a deeply wooded area all by himself? huh? or, was it up and over a very rocky and rugged slope? all by himself? dad just let’s sammy run out that far ahead of him in one of the most remote places on earth, not taking any precautions whatsoever, and now his son has vanished into thin air, without a trace of anything- oh except, that scent, that, the tracking dog found and then it just stopped!!!! the scent just disappeared! just like sammy – gone. i dont know why this is bothering me so much, but, it truly is. there is something about stories that don’t make sense, that, do not add up- its actually because they make perfect sense, and it all adds up to only one thing- foul play. that is my opinion, and, i am not apologizing for how i feel, just imagine how that poor little 8 year old child must have felt on october 14th, 2006.
