John Laurence McMeel
Missing since November 14, 1997 from San Francisco Bay Area, California
Circumstances of Disappearance
In May 1996, John Laurence McMeel left his home of Monaghan, Ireland. He made his way to the San Francisco Bay Area in March 1997, just a few thousand miles away from his sister in Boston, Massachusetts. For nearly nine months, the two kept in contact. During that time span he'd often reach out to her for money, and she'd send him wire transfers to help him along. The transactions were centered in the Bay Area, though it is unknown where John was actually living at the time.
In late November 1997, communications between John and his sister ceased. After not hearing from John for some time, she filed a missing persons report in early 1998.
John has not once contacted his family or friends, either domestically or back in Ireland.
