A Post I made on Myspace.

Hey I know most of you people have probably already hear a story or two of what happened. So now you'll know as much as I do.

I remember going to Louisiana to Laberge du Lac with Ryan Sepulveda, Eric Salazer, Abiel Gonzalez and Tim Wornely on Thursday September 20. I remember we were drinking a lot and having so much fun.......thats the last thing I remember.

I woke up 18 hours later and I had no clue as to what to even start thinking. I was outside, on the side of a road....in the pitch black. I looked to my right, and it was so dark I couldn't even see the road. I looked to my left and it was pitch black but I could kind of see the road and I saw what I thought was the blurr of lights in the distance, so I started walking. When I started walking is when I started to try and figure out what was going on, except I felt like my brain was gone and there was nothing in my head, I was walking like a zombie but I couldn't really do anything about it. I heard a car or two and sure enough the were driving by so I tried to flag them down. It was so dark they never even saw me, I never saw brake lights once. One lady almost hit me because I was walking in the road, so she honked at me and kept going.

Finally I reached a four way stop off the highway which was still dark and a car pulled up to the stop sign, I looked at them and waved my arm as I asked for help. The lady in the front seat looked at me with this face as if she wanted to help, but she was too scared. She lowered her window a little bit, but then started to roll foward as I walked towards her. At that point I lost all hope and must of had a look of despair and hopelessness because she looked at me with the saddest face in the world, and stopped the car. I asked for a ride but the two women said no because they had a baby in the back seat, so I asked if they could call the cops. They said they would and then I started to think about my family. I broke down and started freaking out and asked if they could call my mom, becuase I knew they were all going to be looking for me. I asked her what time it was, and she said, "it's 7: (fifty something), Friday September the 21". I freaked out because the last thing I remember was Thursday around midnight. They called the cops as another man stopped and drove me across the highway to a truck stop where the Sheriff showed up 30 minutes later, asked what happened....turned the ambulance around because I told him I didn't know if I was hurt or not, and then left....

So over an hour later my Mom, Dad, Aunt and Ex-Cutsoms Agent Uncle show up and you can imagine the sight of that.

So we headed back to Lake Charles, because I ended up in Crowely, Louisiana about 80 miles East of Lake Charles, and 5 miles north of I-10 in a rice field. All I had in my pockets when I was last in the casino was about $500 cash, my ID and my phone....also I had a picture of Madeline and me in my back pocket. When I woke up, I had no money in my pockets, no phone and no shoes,but my ID and a picture of Madeline and me in my back pocket. I had a nose, my legs and arms were tingling, and my back and neck was sore. When I started going through my pockets at the truck stop I pulled out the picture from my back pocket not remembering what it was, and I started to break down. I couldn't stand the thought of never seeing Madeline again, and her never knowing why.

After the initial shock and praise of me being back, we tried figuring out what happened. The police, state troopers, and security wouldn't help my family do anything because I was only missing 18 hours. They said it had to be 24 hours before they could start an investigation. I had about 20 family members drive to LA to look for me. It was a very hard time for everyone that went. They looked in the water around the casino, in all the brush, in all the woods, in the trash cans and dumpsters behind malls....they were going to try to put together a search group but it was about 5 in the morning and you couldn't see anything. My family already knew they were going to find me, in a field all by myself. They wouldn't let anyone see the survaillance video because they said they weren't allowed to but they saw me go out into the parking lot at 2 in the morning, I was on the phone walking towards where we parked. They saw a car pull up right next to Ryan's truck, and they saw me walk towards it. The camera start to pan to the right and they saw me take a step to the left and then I was out of sight. When the camera panned back, the car and I was gone....

The only reason anything had gotten done was becuase my uncle who is an Ex-Customs Agent got on the phone and told some people to pull some strings, that they weren't going to wait 24 hours.

I still feel like nothing really happened, becuase I can't remember any of it. I was taken to the hospital but they couldn't find ANYTHING. My clothes were clean besides some blood on my shirt, I didn't have any scratches besides some hand marks on my left and right triceps. Three search groups from Houston were contacted through people who knew my family and the search teams that were going to go out to LA Friday morning, along with a search helicopter. The doctors think someone put something in my drink because there is no other explanation for me being unconscience for 18 hours, but that the two main "drugs" used in these cases are undetectable by test, as my urinalysis showed.

Nobdoy knows what happened, or who did it. All we know is I had a nose, no shoes, no money, or cell phone. While they were looking for me Verizon tapped into the cell phone towers and tried to locate my cell phone, they found a 4 mile radius of it, but too bad I was 80 miles away from it, they threw it out the window 5 miles outside the casino.

Everyone thought I was dead....when I first woke up I thought I was dead... I had the lonliest feeling in my life looking into the dark realizing I was never going to see my family again.

People, I don't blame this on anyone. It wasn't my fault, my families fault, and it defenitely wasn' anyone's fault I went there with. I just know that this was a second chance for me to start over and walk a clean line. I haven' been doing bad things, or making bad decisions. I also haven't been being the brother, son or boyfriend that I should of been. Every second that goes by is another chance to turn it all around, and you can't take it for granted. How easily could it of been that my family found me this morning in a rice field, 80 miles away with a bullet hole in my head, or a stab wound in my side? How would it of been for the people who love me and came to look for me to actually find me...dead.

Just be safe, never think the you hear is 100 miles away, becuase if you're reading this then I hope it's close to home for you. I feel violated becuase I was taken by someone against my will, while they took my money and dropped me off 80 miles away while I was unconscience the whole time. I feel helpless. I guess on the flip side I am glad I was unconscience while the took me (or drugged up) because anyone that knows me knows that I would of been fighting someone who was trying to take me, and we all know that in that case my family may have went to Louisiana to bring their son home in a casket.

Life never seemed to real to me as it did that night. I almost feel dumb, and sorry for making everyone go through all of this. I know things happen for a reason and must of chosen me to be the example this time. My father told me all he could think was that we (my family) are nobody special, its our time to grieve and there's nothing we can do about it. He said he knew he was going to get a call 3 or 4 weeks from now saying, "Mr. Lara, we found what may be your son".

Life can be taken away so quick, that you won't even realize its gone. Don't take it for granted and tell the people you love them that you love them.

Thank you for all the prayers, and phone calls, and voice mails, and text messages. I love you all.

Wow. I have no idea what to say. I have written and erased 3 different posts - none seem right. Don't think this is quite right either, but I can't say nothing....

I'm so happy for your family got good news - you were found alive.

I'm so sorry for you to have had this experience.

Seems to me you have been given a "Second Chance" because there is still something here for you to do. Don't freak out - Have Faith. This wasn't your time, but your time is coming. What will you do now that you know you won't live forever? Seems to me this lesson takes most people a lot longer to learn. I learned it the hard way too - A long time ago. Maybe some of us can only learn it that way. Sometimes when people call me Mean or say I'm a "Party Pooper" it's because they don't understand. I work hard to keep them from going where I took my life. Especially my kids. Because, before this you were a kid too... Now you are all grown up the hard way. It sucks.

Maybe you will close your eyes, ears, head - HEART. And pretend this didn't happen. Or that it has no reason or meaning in your life. But,I'm sure I don't have to tell you because the drum beat in your head is the same that went through mine...

Now What? Now What? Now What? Now What? Now What? Now What?

Only you have that answer. I hope...
