Police ask help in solving missing man’s fate

Michael Lane Hall was reported missing May 26 and police investigators are treating the case as a homicide, asking the public’s help in determining the man’s fate.

Hall, 19, was seen entering the U.S. through the San Ysidro Port of Entry on May 31 at 2:30 a.m. Police say he was believed to have visited or stayed in the Ocean Beach, Pacific Beach or La Jolla areas before his 2004 Ford F150 pickup truck was seen in the Colina Del Sol area about six hours after entering the border area.

Hall is described as white, roughly 6 feet tall, weighing between 160 and 180 pounds, with light-brown hair and blue eyes.

According to Det. Frank Hoermann of the Homicide Division, police believe Hall may have been the victim of a homicide.

Anyone with information connected to the case is urged to call SDPD at (619) 531-2000 or Det. Cat Millett at (619) 531-2277. San Diego Crime Stoppers is offering a reward up to $1,000 for information leading to Hall’s whereabouts. For more information, visit www.sdcrimestoppers.com.

OB man admits killing ex-girlfriend’s puppy

An Ocean Beach man pleaded guilty June 14 to felony animal abuse when he killed his girlfriend’s puppy and to domestic violence for slapping her in a motor home parked at Dog Beach.

Aubry Eugene Glascock, 32, will be sentenced Aug. 1 by San Diego Superior Court Judge Eugenia Eyherabide. The judge said she would impose no more than 16 months in prison if she decides to deny probation.

The incident took place April 27 at a motor home parked at the foot of Voltaire Street. Glascock slapped his girlfriend and then threw the

4-month-old puppy against the motorhome. The dog was dead at the scene when police arrived, said Deputy District Attorney Harrison Kennedy.

A restraining order against Glascock prohibits him from contacting his former girlfriend. Charges involving corporal injury to another person on April 15 were dropped.

Glascock is being held without bail. He has also been charged with damaging jail property in excess of $950 in damages and will be sentenced July 24 in Chula Vista Superior Court on that case.

Chamber moves ahead with outreach campaign

The board of directors of the Peninsula Chamber of Commerce has decided to move to Phase 2 in its “Forward, Together!” business betterment outreach campaign.  

Chamber officials said the purpose of Phase 2 is to expand the conversation between businesses and how they can attract more business to Point Loma, work more effectively with City Hall in reducing red tape while keeping business taxes among the lowest in California, as well as building stronger ties between business.  

The chamber has scheduled nine sessions where Point Loma Village/Shelter Island business owners will discuss these concepts for the area. Meetings will begin Tuesday, July 3. All sessions will be an hour long and will cover the same issues, so most business owners will find attending one or two sessions sufficient, according to chamber officials. Meetings are open to the entire community but only business issues will be discussed.  

For more information, call (619) 223-1629, or visit www.peninsulachamber.com.
