Michaela Joy Garecht was nine-years-old when she was abducted
by an unknown male assailant in the parking lot of the Rainbow
Market in Hayward, California, on the morning of November 19,
1988. She was attempting to retrieve her friend's scooter that
the abductor had moved closer to his vehicle while the girls
were inside the market when she was grabbed by the assailant
and pulled into a car. Garecht has not been seen or heard from
since this date.
Michaela Garecht was last seen wearing a white t-shirt with the word "Metro" across the front and pictures of people on the midsection. She had on denim pants rolled above her knees, black shoes, and wore three-inch pearl or white colored earrings which resembled feathers.
