((It's an elaborate and well hidden bunker -- filled with spy gear -- plans for explosive electrical circuits -- maps --and diagrams of power plants and manuals on military techniques.
CAPT. JOHN GREEN/ABERDEEN POLICE "HE HAD A LOT OF LITERATURE ON HOW TO BE A SNIPER, HOW TO BUILD SHOULDER FIRED ROCKETS, HE ALSO BUILT A MOCK UP OF WHAT APPEARS TO BE A SHOULDER FIRED ROCKET."
All belonging to 25 year old Mikhail Sharov -- a Russian national AWOL from the army's 82 airborne division.
Sharov built the bunker -- stockpiling bullets -- a bullet proof vest -- electrical circuitry -- apparently printing up phony driver licenses -- he had stacks of books on military hardware as well as a journal of his anti-social -- anti-technology frame of mind that police compare to Unabomber Ted Kaczyinski.
"HE HAS ESSENTIALLY THE SAME VALUES AS THE UNABOMBER."
But who is Mikhail Sharov? KIRO 7 has learned he's highly educated computer technician -- formerly employed by Microsoft and a US army sergeant. Sharov's vanished before -- disappearing mysteriously along the Apalachian trail near his home in Blacksburg, Virginia. His parents waited through a massive search -- then Sharov shows up suddenly and announced at a nearby airport -- walking 35 miles -- trying to get a flight back to Fort Bragg.
MIKHAIL SHAROV/FILE/2000 "THIS IS NOT JUST AN ATTEMPT TO DITCH THE ARMY? NO. DITCH YOUR PARENTS? NO, DEFINITELY NOT."
But 16 months later -- Sharov went AWOL from the army -- vanishing from sight until his arrest in Aberdeen. Sharov gave no explanation for this bunker style home -- much like his failure to explain his mysterious disappearance two years ago.
"I TRIED TO FIND A PHONE, BUT THERE WEREN'T MANY PHONES ALONG THE HIGHWAY, I DIDN'T SEE ANY, SORRY.")) [ON CAM TAG] As of Wednesday night, Sharov only faces misdemeanor charges of trespassing. By the way, when Aberdeen police contacted Sharov's parents, they had only one request: don't tell Mikhail where we are.

Earlier this week, authorities released an artist's rendering of what the man may have looked like. The man's skull was used to reconstruct his facial features out of clay.

The partially decomposed body was discovered last May at the Poages Mill overlook by a group of friends playing frisbee. Meanwhile, police are investigating whether the man could be Howard Woolwine, who disappeared from a Martinsville adult-care facility in 1998, but they say Woolwine is just one of more than a dozen men who resemble the artist's rendering.

Governor Warner spoke today at a meeting of his Secure Virginia Panel.
This group was formed in January to improve the state's preparedness for any type of emergency, including a terrorist attack.

[VO]
[SUPER=03-Richmond; :00]


The Secure Virginia Panel released 33 recommendations today to add to the six they made in July.
Governor Warner has signed off on all of them.
They include improving security at the Capitol, creating an evacuation plan for government leaders and employees.
And finding a place to move all three branches of the government if something should happen to the Capitol.
Also, due to the anthrax scare, they want all government mail to go through the same processing facility.
The other recommendations concern information sharing with the private sector.
Governor Warner says its important to protect our utility and telephone lines in the event of an emergency.
He says right now the government can't do that because it doesn't know where those lines are.
And that's one thing he wants to change.
