Cathy Wilson, the mother of missing Rice University student Mathew Wilson, is back in the Bay Area searching for her 21-year-old son. Bridget Melson with the Pleasanton-based Trinity Search and Recovery, which is assisting Wilson, 52, with her search said she drove Wilson down Telegraph Avenue one night earlier this week. Matthew Wilson, missing since December, has reportedly been seen there in recent weeks.

“What drama we encountered-we had some serious adrenaline pumping. A young man with Matt’s build, hair/beard color, stance, etc. walked by us and for a moment Cathy froze almost convinced it was Matt. We circled the block again and she was in such a state of panic and curiosity that she and Mike, my husband, jumped out of the car and walked up to this young man to ask if he was Matt. It was intense. His own mother thought that this could be him…” Melson told me in an email earlier this week.

It wasn’t,. The young man kept saying “I’m not Matt.” Cathy Wilson who lives in a small town in Oklahoma, was defeated but she will not give up. Her son’ s car was found in Berkeley in June and she will continue to search Berkeley this weekend for him. 

But she needs help.
Searchers will meet at 4 p.m.  Friday, Aug. 1 near U.C. Berkeley and walk the surrounding neighborhoods. They will meet again at 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 2. Volunteers  can  register at  <

    Wilson has since been found and sent for psychiatric evaluation. That I what I predicted on his family forum website. His sisters and some of his friends agreed that he was a victim of Subliminal Distraction exposure.

    That problem was discovered when it caused mental breaks for office workers. The cubicle was created and introduced in 1968 to prevent accidental attempts to trigger the vision startle reflex. That’s right the problem was solved forty years ago but colleges and students are unaware of it.

    It is the likely cause of ADD, ADHD, suicides and disappearances of students.
