    Details of Disappearance

    Barreto was last known to be in Miami, Florida. His family wired him some money on January 20, 1977, and this is the last contact they had with him. Barreto developed a mental problem after he experimented with LSD while serving in the Army. His mental illness caused him to travel aimlessly when the weather was warm. He was receiving disability payments at the time of his disappearance; the money would be deposited in an account his mother had access to and he would call her and ask her to send him some as he needed it.

    Few details are available in Barreto's case. Lake Owego, Oregon police are investigating.
