EAST HONOLULU, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A desperate mother is demanding answers after her son mysteriously disappeared nearly three months ago.

Shelly Miguel says it's been 84 excruciating days without her only child, Johnathan Fraser, who was last seen on July 30 in the Hawaii Kai area.

Miguel says she suspects foul play.

"I think that someone has something to do with my son's disappearance…only because kids don't fall off the face of the earth, Chelsea. My son is loved, very well loved. He would never leave us. He would never leave me," Miguel said through tears.

Miguel describes her son as mellow, very quiet, and a friend to everyone. She said her son and his girlfriend are expecting a baby and he would never walk away from his family.

"Do the right thing and give my son up...because you won't get away with it. He's loved, very loved," said Miguel.

The 21-year-old got into a deadly car accident last November in Kaneohe. Fraser survived, but the other person in the car did not.

Now federal authorities are involved in the investigation.

"We have FBI, we have HPD, we have homicide detectives. The best, the top. There's nothing," she said.

Fraser's car has been recovered, but not much else. So she and other family members have been canvassing the island, asking anyone for leads.

So far, the family has gotten tips from people saying Fraser has been sighted in the areas between Waikiki and Chinatown.

"I go out on the streets with my family into all these cracks and holes where there's homeless, druggies, drug dealers, I don't care what walk of life they come from, I'm not judging, I just want my baby."

Because of the car accident, Fraser has four large scars on his face. One beneath his left eye, another under his nose, and two on his chin. Aside from his shoulder-length wavy hair, Miguel hopes the scars will help the public recognize him and bring her son home.

"I need for them to help me find my son, please. Help me to find my baby. He's my only child. I'm dying without him."
