Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
James was last seen on June 12, 1965 at the the Bordenkircher family Beaver Street cabin, at Kings Beach, above Lake Tahoe. He was last seen at the wooden-seated swing in the front yard. Jamies brother Mike, 18 at the time, ducked inside the cabin for just a moment. When he came back outside, the swing was empty.
After a thorough search both on land and water Jamie was not located. When the search ended with no evidence, officials and relatives came to their own separate conclusions. Some believed Jamie drowned in Lake Tahoe, although no body was ever recovered. Others believed he was lost in the mountains. His family believe he was abducted.
