  • Details of Disappearance
    Michael and his girlfriend Bonita Bickwit planned on attending the Watkins Glen concert, which was starting Saturday, July 28th, 1973. Weiser actually hitchhiked upstate to meet Bonnie near Camp Wel-Met, where she was working as a motherís helper for the summer.

    The two planned to see a jam fest with the Allman Brothers, the Grateful Dead, and The Band. It is unknown if they made it to their destination and neither has been seen since.

    Bickwit and Weiser, who respectively hailed from Borough Park and Midwood and were students at John Dewey High School on Avenue X, presumably never made it to the village at the tip of Seneca Lake; neither made it home after the jam show, and friends believe they disappeared en route.

    In 2000, a Rhode Island man told police he had hitchhiked with Bickwit and Weiser, and watched them get swept away in the Susquehanna River.
