He has not been in touch with any of his relatives since. But Tom is not a missing person. His family know roughly where he is. It's just that he won't talk to them and they suspect he never will. "He got hooked in by an online cult," Barbara says. "The website convinces vulnerable people that they should hate their parents and should leave their family."

Even the wording of Tom's letter is from the website. Its founder says, "The letter should buy you six to 12 months before your family come looking for you and that will give you time to get used to living without them."
