Is he just cynical by nature? Does he feel guilt that he couldn't do more? Or did he, like you say, just prefer to remain anonymous. Of course he didn't have to call in or go to the reunion.
Colleen had went on UM to find and thank the men who saved her, he thought she might be in it for the attention.

How about the Baskin Children? They were kidnapped by their grandparents and finally found 20 years later. Their parents, Mark and Debbie Baskin flew out for a televised reunion, but their children snubbed them and never showed. Several years later they have never heard a single word from either child, despite the fact that the children are in their thirties now :/

This!! This is the one I was thinking of that I posted I couldn't remember. I know it wasn't exactly a reunion, but it is awkward that they still won't see their parents. I had such hopes for the parents when they were found, and it was such a let down to find out those kids would not see them at all.

The case of David Shipenburg was another one, although there really was no reunion, just closure. David was kidnapped by his father in May 1974, when he was 7 years old. Marianne Malky, David's mother, located his wife and was able to speak to her about David, after looking for him for over 30 years. The wife informed Marianne that David was alive and well but wanted nothing to do with her(Marianne).

Yeah, the Baskin case...the only way to properly describe my feelings towards the grandparents is with this smilie:

What really gets me about the grandparents is that the Baskins did have a third child, younger than the two ones the grandparents kidnapped. As I recall, the parents were going through tough financial times and sent the two older ones to live with the grandparents, but continued to look after the youngest. But the grandparents refuse to return the kids and make up wild accusation about the parents being Satanists who were horribly abusing their kids. When the accusations are proven bogus, the grandparents disappear with the other kids.

The thing that gets me is that even though the grandparents believed their grandchildren were being horribly abused, they didn't even bother trying to fight for custody for the youngest. What rationale did they use for that decision?! "We must rescue these poor children who have been horribly abused by their parents except for the youngest who is apparently the reincarnation of Hitler and therefore deserves cruel, sadistic abuse."

Yep! If the grandparents were truly concerned about the children they would have taken all three! To me that proves the children were never in real danger. And it looks like the youngest son (now an adult) who was left behind has a very close and loving relationship with his parents... He would know their character better than anyone! I browsed their facebook a few years ago hoping there had finally been a reunion. I THINK I saw that The Baskins ended up adopting some kids (now adults) but my mind is a little hazy so I can't say for sure... They seem like such strong and positive people even now despite all that has happened.

Wow, that one sounds like a real heartbreaker too... that poor mother!

Yes, obviously David had been brainwashed by the father and led to believe his mother was bad news.

We have a case here in MN like this right now. The mother kidnapped the daughters in 2013. Mother was arrested in FL earlier this year, on parental alienation charges or something like that.. The daughters were just found today in western MN. It's thought they were helped by some underground group who helps abuse victims. They claim they were abused but most people think they were brainwashed by the mother. Same as the Baskins there were other kids the mom left behind with this "horrible, abusive" man. The daughters want nothing to do with the dad. These situations happen too frequently and it's sad when the child wants nothing to do with the parent(s) who love them.

Not so much on topic, but I adore the black man and white women who reunited and reunited with the daughter they had to give up. They all looked smitten!

The bittersweet one where the girl was looking for her sister but it turned out that she had died. I can't remember her name but the reunion with her sister's family seemed kind of awkward if not very sad

Mac McDonald died in 2017:

Unsolved Mysteries mentioned that he never married and had no children but his obituary says otherwise and does not mention his daughter from UM.

He is survived by his son Douglas McDonald and grandchildren, Thea, Logan, and Ray McDonald

An earlier post went out of their way to make this guy sound like some sad old man, but reading that it sounds like he lived a heck of a life.

Here's how I've always assumed these reunions go.

Everybody gets dressed up in their worst 80s / 90s fashions, you show up with a big bouquet of balloons, everybody hugs while a camera crew silently stares at you. And everything is just great.
Then what?
Nobody really has anything in common after not seeing each other for 40 years so at most you might share a phone call around christmas for a few years, but eventually that gets downgraded to a christmas card with a nice note, which eventually gets downgraded to nothing.
