7, 1999: Noreen Gosch, mother of the missing child Johnny
Gosch, has announced that her son visited her once, in 1997. She had not told
her ex-husband John, and it was the first time she mentioned this visit in
By Noreen Gosch's account, she was awakened around 2:30am one morning in March,
1997 by a knock at her apartment door. Waiting outside was Johnny Gosch, now 27
years old, accompanied by a man she had never seen before. Gosch said she
immediately recognized her son, who opened his shirt to reveal a birthmark on
his chest. "We talked about an hour or an hour and a half. He was with
another man, but I have no idea who the person was. Johnny would look over to
the other person for approval to speak," says Ms. Gosch. "He didn't
say where he is living or where he was going."
According to Johnny, he was taken by a highly organized, very corporate global
pedophile/pornography ring. Evidence links this same porno/pedophile ring to
the 80's 'congressional call boy scandal', money laundering, drug running,
illegal arms deals and more.Like so many others, before and since, Johnny was
subjected to severe trauma and torture of a satanic and sexual nature, in order
to intentionally destroy the conscious personality.... brainwashing. This
intentional application of trauma is a systematic procedure used to control
these victims, in order to use them in sexual slavery, pornography and more.
Noreen Gosch testified that Johnny Gosch came to provide information about his
experience, ask for his mother's help and plead for her to not reveal his
visit. Johnny, who is now 36 years old, told Noreen that after years of
suffering tremendous torture and pain at the hands of his captors, being used
and abused, he and several others escaped. They have been living in hiding
under new identities and fear for their lives. People ask ... why is it
necessary for someone to hide and live this way..... It is simple, Johnny can
identify many of the people involved and would be a threat to the very people
who took him. He is known as the "chameleon". Why? Because he can so
completely change his appearance.He would like to be a part of his family once
again but it isn't safe. The people who take these children also do a thorough
job of brainwashing. Telling these young children that if they try to resume
any kind of life with their families.... they will be killed. It is enough of a
threat and fear to these young people ....that they do not try to contact their
families.Johnny took a chance to come and see his mother for a very short time.
He wanted to give her information, in the hope she could bring it out to the
public. Information about this network of pedophiles and how they operate. He
is very angry about what has happened to him and the years with his family
which have been taken from him. Who could blame any of these young people for
being angry at the system.

May 31, 2005: A
cold case is heating up. Iowa
paperboy Johnny Gosch vanished without a trace in 1982. But, now, there is new
information on the case.
Last month, people on the internet and investigators like James Rothstein, a
New York City
police detective, now a private investigator working the case for Johnny's
mother Noreen, began to believe a man who passed himself off as a White House
reporter and known male prostitute Jeff Gannon could be Johnny Gosch. And while
Gannon's true identity still can't be confirmed, Rothstein says the more clues
he uncovers, the possibility Gannon may be Gosch increases, "When you look
into the whole abduction of Johnny, what happened, the cover-up that took
place, the way the kidnapping was done, this was a professional job and it fits
the profile that I have seen over the years as a professional
Former Los Angeles FBI Special Agent in Charge Ted Gunderson, now a private
investigator and author of "How to Find Anyone," appeared on the
"Mysteries of the Mind" radio program March 8 and claimed that he has
"a credible, reliable source" that says "Jeff Gannon" is
indeed kidnapped Des Moines Iowa paperboy Johnny Gosch.
Gunderson claimed that "Gannon" has scar on right cheek. Johnny's
mother Noreen Gosch has looked at the mark on "Gannon" in photographs
and said it was the same as that as on her son. Gunderson says that a birthmark
in the "shape of
appears to have been removed from Gannon's chest.
Gunderson believes that Gosch took on the persona of James Gannon/Jeff Guckert
and gained White House access with the eventual goal of exposing the people who
kidnapped him and put him, and his family, through hell. Gannon is alleged to
have a publishing deal with a Russian imprint, which some believe will result
in a tell-all book that exposes those who’ve paid for his “services,” as well
as the pedophile ring that he, as Gosch, was victimized by after his
As for what Johnny's mother Noreen believes, "I could see some of the
similarities,” she says. “I could see in (Gannon) the features that Johnny had.
I was told that Johnny had changed his entire appearance again after I saw him.
That he shaved his head and is going with that look for now. Honestly,
sometimes I think, ‘oh, yeah, that looks like him,’ and other times the jump is
too much to think about."

Report: Is Jeff Gannon Johnny Gosch? (7:56)
August 27, 2006: West Des
Moines police confirm that they're checking the
authenticity of photos that purport to be pictures of missing child Johnny
Gosch. Sergeant Jason Bryan says everyone on the force knows the story of the West
Des Moines paperboy
who vanished on his early-morning route in 1982.
CNN reported that Gosch's mother found two photographs left at her front door,
some of which she posted on her website. In the days since, she has updated the
site several times with possible leads in the case.
In total, Ms. Gosch received several photos. One color photo shows three boys
bound and gagged. Ms. Gosch stated that her son appears "on the
right" in the first photo. A black-and-white photo appears to show
12-year-old Johnny Gosch with his mouth gagged, his hands and feet tied, and an
apparent human brand on his shoulder. Ms. Gosch says he is wearing the same
sweatpants as the time he disappeared. The image has a red arrow pointing to
his shoulder labeled "The Brand".
Sargeant Bryan says Noreen Gosch came to police on Thursday. She brought them
some photos and turned them over to the criminal-investigation unit. Bryan
says the lead
detective on the case is now researching their authenticity. A lot of claims by
people who said they'd seen the boy, and some who said they were Johnny, over
the years have been debunked, but the sergeant says this one will get the same
attention as any case.
The same approach, he says -- any case that's open and active, and any new
information regarding a case, is looked into to the fullest extent. "Then
we go from there, basically," he says.
Detective Boyd is assigned to the case and will be working on the new photos.
He isn't the original member of the force who handled it back in 1982, but
currently is the detective on the case. It was September 5, 1982, when Johnny
Gosch was last seen, picking up papers that had been dropped off for his
