Details of Disappearance

Gerald disappeared with his best friend, Robert Rasmussen, from Plymouth, Massachusetts on September 9, 1957. After their disappearances, the boys' clothing was found on Flat Rock by Plymouth Harbor. An extensive search turned up no sign of either of them and they have never been heard from again.

Although the circumstances of their disappearances indicated Gerald and Robert had drowned, the boys' sisters never believed this was the case and investigators did look into other theories.

Gerald's and Robert's younger sisters said their homes were troubled and they thought the boys had run away and left their clothes on the beach to make people think they were dead. The women hope their brothers are still alive.

Gerald lived on Rocky Hill Road in Plymouth in 1957. His and Robert's disappearances remain unsolved.
