This takes the cake. As finances fall apart, we will probably be seeing more desperate stories. But this one just tops it all.

He leaves his plane flying through the air and jumps out? Thank goodness the plane did not hit anything or anyone. What an incredibly self-centered, malicious act.

Then says he was in a canoe accident? Do canoes even have accidents? Then gets police to drive him to a motel? Then runs into the woods? And is last seen on red moped?

This man needed to study up on the great disappearances. He was doing it all wrong. For one thing, aiming a jet at Florida post- 9/11 is not going to work.

And emailing your neighbor hints about it, when your neighbor already thinks you are suspicious, is bound to get you caught.

The MAIN thing he has going for him is he looks nearly identical to about a few million other men.

He was probably using a fake name to begin with. Shrenker -- was that it? That sounds made up.

Where do people GET these ideas? Oh I know. Television.

If only he was involved in a $50 Billion fraud instead, he could've been resting in his NY penthouse apartment under "house arrest"

In the words of Hawk 'HE GONE'. Why would you even let someone leave in the first place?
