  • Details of Disappearance
    Michael, a psychologist and mental health counselor from Yardley, PA., left a conference Westchester, Pa., and checked into the Pine Tree Motel near Gaines.
    It looked like Malinowski had pulled into the parking area, changed into hiking boots, maybe filled a couple of water bottles, grabbed his camera and headed out for a quick walk.
    Thousands of man-hours of searching turned up nothing. His Social Security number credit cards has not been used since 1996.
    This 1995 Nissan Sentra, rented by Malinowski, was found in the small parking area at the trail access to Barbour Rock Overlook.
