It's been a long 15 1/2 months for Michael Muse and his family as they wait for any word on the whereabouts of Muse's son, Christian, 20. He was last seen on July 15, 2012 in the Oxon Hill, Maryland area.
Muse, a professional vocalist with local bands such as Proper Utensils and formerly of Rare Essence, hopes that either he or someone up on the stage will see his son in the crowd at a performance from that vantage point. He hopes one of his son's friends will see him and report back.
"It's been far too long. We are a family in peril and we want our loved one back," states an emotional Muse. "As a father, I'm living a parent's worst nightmare not knowing whether my son is dead or alive, sick or injured or whether he even knows where home is anymore."
Christian Muse has some distinguishing marks as he has the word "Twin" tattooed on one hand and the crest of the Nation of Islam tattooed on his other hand. He also has the initials, "CM" tattooed under his left eye. He is believed to be emotionally disturbed and possibly suffering from amnesia.
Due to Muse's age, 20, it has been difficult to get media to take action and get his picture out for all to see.
In the coming weeks, a candle light vigil is planned as well as a fundraiser with legendary figures in the GoGo Community wrapping their arms around the heart of one of their own in assistance. Updated information will be available.
