Long ago I had a friend. He got lost and was never found. His disappearance sowed turmoil amongst a group of people who otherwise all seem very nice people living.. their lives with this terrible baggage.
Your mom seemed so inconsolable. To stand on the fringes of that was so very painful watching from so far away, helpless.
What DID ever happen to Joseph Helt? I miss you old friend. To this day I am far away but still try to concieve of ways to find some small article or item you carried on you.
The others are right: 24 years IS far too long.

24 years IS far too long. Joe was such an incredible guy. Someone who touched many people and yet for years some in this community seem quite content to forget about him. Those who know what happened to Joe in the early hours of Jan. 17th will have to answer for that. Joe's family, his friends, his loved ones all deserve peace. Joe deserves peace. And we won't stop until those answers come forward.
For anyone who doesn't know who Joe Helt is, he was a 17 year old Ellenville High School junior who disappeared without a trace in 1987. Joe attended a party the night of Jan. 16, 1987 with many other EHS students up at the remnants of the old Mount Cathalia Ski Lodge in Cragsmoor (which is now nothing more than an old foundation as it was demolished by the Town of Wawarsing after Joe's disappearance.)
Joe left the party in the early hours of Jan. 17th with 3 individuals...Wade Marks, Kelly Diaz and John LaForge. What happened after this point only these three know for sure. All that is definitely known is that Joe was never seen again. You can read more about Joe's case at: http://forjoehelt.webs.com/ or https://www.facebook.com/Justice.For.Joe.Helt .
