If anyone has any information on Michael Labossiere i would greatly appreciate it..I believe this is the same Michael from San Gabriel valley CA. We were very close a long time ago and i have been looking for him, this is not how i wanted to find him, but maybe i can at least know if he was happy for a while?

Thanks for your help,
