It was four years ago today that Lorne Boulet took a walk and never returned home. Tonight there will be a vigil in his hometown to recognize him.
I wanted to say that I'm thinking of Lorne and his family today. Our family will be releasing four balloons tonight @ 7:30 for Lorne because we are unable to attend his vigil.

Thinking of Lorne always.

Louise, as promised, we had our family release 4 balloons for Lorne tonight. Dad didnt know that the balloon place was to have "blue" balloons rather than purple. When I got home today, I was like PURPLE?
We just went ahead and used them.

Some people chose not to be photographed but we just went ahead and did a few so you could see that Lorne was remembered.

I'll talk to you very soon.

xx Still searching for Lorne
« Reply #108 on: Aug 5th, 2005, 1:33pm »

Louise ~

Sorry to highjack your thread but I was so excited about this that i had to post it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was waiting on this to come out




As dusk began to fall on July 29, 2001, 21-year-old Lorne Boulet woke up from a nap, said goodbye to his parents and set off on his usual evening walk. He left his cell phone, his wallet, his car and his dog, Sasha, at home.

Four years later, Boulet still hasn't returned.

Despite hiring a bounty hunter and a private investigator, contacting every homeless shelter in the country and getting Boulet's picture featured on a car during a California NASCAR race, Boulet's parents have no leads to their son's whereabouts.

"Until I'm on the other side of the turf,"said Lorne Boulet Sr., Boulet's father, "I'll never give up."

Over the passing years, Boulet's parents and aunt have intensified their search for Boulet, who was diagnosed with schizophrenia before he disappeared.

In February 2004, Louise Holmburg, Boulet's aunt, started a Web site devoted to Lorne's case. The family sends a DVD full of old home videos and pictures of Boulet to shelters and hospitals, just in case someone might recognize Lorne's broad smile, with his missing front tooth.


But while Boulet's family clings to the hope that one day Boulet might return, the past four years have taken their toll.

"I'm not coping well," said Evelyn Boulet, his mother. "Time goes by and your hope diminishes."

Boulet's parents blame his disappearance on mental illness. After taking the drug Ecstasy for several months following his graduation from Pembroke Academy, Boulet underwent a dramatic transformation.

Once a popular student who loved to work out and dreamed of opening his own gym, Boulet started to sleep all day. He gained weight. After suffering hallucinations, he was diagnosed with schizophrenia.

"His hopes and dreams were gone," his mother said. "I watched him go back to being a little child."

Schizophrenia often strikes those in late adolescence or their early 20s. While its symptoms vary, many schizophrenics suffer from hallucinations and delusional thinking.

Lorne withdrew from his old friends. He became attached to Holmburg's three young sons, and took them swimming and snowboarding, and to Canobie Lake Park. Last week, Holmburg asked her middle son, Tim, what she should say about Boulet at the vigil they held in Chichester last Friday.

"He said, 'He's like a big brother and a best friend and a dad,'"Holmburg said. "He was a role model. He was so good with them."

But if Boulet's illness brought him closer to his young cousins, it proved extremely difficult for his parents.

"Because of his illness, he felt that people who loved him were out to get him," said his mother. Boulet grew increasingly wary of his doctors, who he thought "were messing with his head," according to Holmburg. Every so often, he would take himself off his medication.

His condition didn't improve with time. "He wanted to work and be normal, but he just didn't know how," said his mother. Evelyn Boulet believes he may have left home because he feared that his parents would send him to a mental hospital. "It was the delusion," said his father, "and fear of us or himself."

The family's search has been hampered by Boulet's age. Because he is over 18, he is legally allowed to be missing and can't be held or forced to contact his family.

But that could soon change. In February, a Florida congressman introduced the Audrey Nerenberg Act. If passed, the law would extend the Missing Children's Assistance Act to those "determined to have a mental capacity of less than 18 years of age."

Since getting Internet access last year, Holmburg has found four other cases of missing adults with schizophrenia.

"People with mental illnesses going missing is not uncommon,"said Bob Carolla, news director for the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill. According to Carolla, 200,000 individuals are homeless in the United States. One-third of them are mentally ill.

After four years of scouring the country for Boulet, Boutlet's parents and aunt have finally found a positive use for their years of heart-wrenching searches.

Remembering the confusion and terror that accompanied the first months of Boulet's disappearance, they now help other families begin their search. Holmburg has designed four Web sites for other families missing relatives, and has traveled to conferences and vigils for the missing. "People with a missing loved one aren't like everyday people. They're altered. They have so much feeling and compassion," said Holmburg.

There are currently 47,828 missing adults registered with the National Center for Missing Adults.

In a desperate attempt to keep other parents from experiencing what he's experienced, Lorne Boulet Sr. recently became the eastern New Hampshire director of IDENT-A-KID, a national program that makes ID cards with children's fingerprints and personal information. The cards tell parents what to do if their child goes missing.

If Lorne Boulet is found, his parents realize they'll be facing an uphill struggle. "We don't know what we're facing. It could be devastating," said his father. "We could end up in and out of hospitals."

But after flying to California and driving to Massachusetts to follow leads that turned up nothing, Boulet's parents just want to know that their son is still alive.

"If you mean the word 'closure'as closure, then no, I don't want that. I want continuity. I'd rather have faith that he's out there somewhere," said his father.

Every Christmas, Holmburg buys one present for Boulet, and carefully packs it away. "Not a day goes by that I'm not at that computer," she said. Holmburg maintains Lorne's Web site, and her minivan is detailed with photos of Lorne, in the hope that someday someone might drive by and recognize his face.

"I remember Lorne as a happy, friendly kid. He would give you the shirt off his back," his mother added. "I have those good memories. But I want him back. I want more memories."

A message to Lorne ~

It has been over 4 years since you took that walk that never lead you back home.
Your Mom hopes every year that you will return on Sept. 5th, if not before, to wish her a Happy Birthday.
Monday is your Mom's birthday, I pray that that this years Birthday Wish comes true for her.

I miss you Lorne!

Nothing major, but wanted to share this...

I was folding laundry the other day and came across a shirt that Lorne bought for my youngest when he turned 6 (the last birthday he had with Lorne).
I looked at that shirt and realized just how long "4 YEARS" truly are. My son went from a size 4-5 to an 8-10. It doesn't sound like much, but comparing the shirt to my son, he tried it on, and the difference was so much more noticable.
If my son changed that much, what does Lorne look like now?

I want to thank all of you for thinking of Lorne and aiding in our search. You are all truly a Blessing!

With special thoughts,
Louise

Halloween is just over a week away and Lorne is still not home.
This is a Holiday that he spent with his 3 cousins, dressing up (ALL 4 of them) and taking them Trick-or-Treating.
The last Halloween he was home, he dressed up as a Business-Man, or in Lorne's terms... "Binniss - Min". Dressed in a Tuxedo with a cane/staff and a top hat. How those were happy days...!
Where are you Lorne? Do you think of the boys and Trick-or-Treating? Are you happy?
As every other year that has passed, I pray this is the last without Lorne. Questions without answers and dreams without reality... When does it all change?
I miss you Lorne and hold you so close to my heart. Where ever you are, I pray that you are safe. I love you FOREVER!
Love you,
Auntie Wease
