  • Details of Disappearance
    At about 8:30 p.m. on March 15, 1974, Perry Corlew got into a fender-bender in front of Grayling's Rialto Theater in a car he had just purchased. Instead of waiting for police, he left the scene. About 90 minutes later a passing trucker alerted police that Corlew's car was sitting on the side of I-75 about 15 miles south of Grayling. The engine was still running, the headlights were on and the driver's side door was open. There were no footprints in the snow and no witnesses to what happened. A police report said Corlew may have gone to downstate Michigan or to Florida. Friends said he had talked of going to California.
