What a wonderful end to this story and hopefully Elba will live a long life. This story actually makes me hopeful that my missing wife, Patricia Viola, who vanished from our Bogota, NJ hope over eight years ago on Feb. 13, 2001, may have fallen into the same fate. Patricia has epilepsy and vanished without her medication. Severe seizures could have possibly caused my Patricia to have amnesia or worse. I still believe she could have landed in a State Psychiatic Hospital as well. I have encouraged the Bogota Police over the years to investigate this possibility but they refused. Maybe now they will. For more information on my dear Patricia, please see her web site,

Thank you. Jim Viola - Husband
