    Details of Disappearance

    Jimmy was last seen in Leavenworth, Washington on October 19, 1973. He, his parents and his younger sister were camping at Peevine Creek on the Little Wenatchee River. Jimmy's parents left the campsite to collect firewood. They were about 200 yards away from the camper when they heard a scream. When they returned a few minutes later, Jimmy's sister was asleep inside the camper and the two cats were there, but Jimmy was gone and the camper door was open.

    An extensive search of the area, which lasted a week and involved up to 300 volunteers, turned up no sign of Jimmy. The county undersheriff said he was "99 percent sure he's not there." His case remains unsolved.
