Details of Disappearance
Charles Fletcher was living with a friend in Glassboro, NJ. He left the residence and did not return. Fletcher told his friends he was headed to Philadelphia. The last time anyone heard from Fletcher was on Mother's Day in 1975. He called his mom to wish her well and promised to see her soon.
Unknown type of transportaion but visited Glassboro N.J. frequently. He is a World war II veteran who was awarded the Purple Heart for injuries he suffered in the war. He had metal plates in his head and arm - and he suffered periods of disorientation that meant he sometimes went missing for a few weeks here, a few months there. He always returned to the family's home around 20th and Cumberland, or stayed with friends in Glassboro, N.J., where he was last seen.
