According to a posting on the official RAMMSTEIN web site, a RAMMSTEIN fan by the name of William Lamar (photo#1, photo#2) has been missing since October 28. "It is known that he boarded a plane from the U.S. to London, UK on this date," the posting reads. "His parents assume that he was planning to attend the RAMMSTEIN signing session there. Since this day, no one has heard anything from him. William's parents are very concerned and worried as William is not well and may need medication. We would like to ask everybody who has attended the London signing session and possibly met William there or at a later time to call one of the telephone numbers [listed on the site]."

According to Nu-News.com, Lamar has Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism most commonly marked by difficulty socializing with others.
The only new development was a false sighting of Lamar last week in an airport in Maine. A passenger reported he may have seen Lamar in Portland International Airport, but when the security tape was replayed, it turned out not to be him.
Since Lamar is 18, and therefore an adult, he cannot be forced to return home even if he is found, James Ferrier, Associate Director of Public Safety at Northeastern University (where Lamar was a freshman), said. The message is simply that his family wants him to contact them.
Lamar is described as having light hair, 6 ft – 6'1", 180-190 pounds, with blue eyes and blonde hair.
