Tuesday the Twittersphere started fluttering with vague comments about something disturbing that was breaking in the world of online fan sites.

It seems that IESB's Robert Sanchez has been missing for about a month, as sordid allegations swirl around the fansite editor and film producer. IESB cancelled its annual Comic-Con party. Sanchez's wife has "fallen off the grid," according to another web master, who says that their home phone is apparently disconnected.

Well, the Rancho Cucamonga police confirm that they questioned Sanchez about a month ago about allegations that he sexually abused his step-daughter and have not been able to contact him since. "He's not cooperating with law enforcement," said a spokeswoman. "We're investigating the allegations and interviewing witnesses in the case. He is a suspect in the case. These are charges that are being looked into."
