Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
On July 3, 1974 Harper, his wife and their young child were out on the lake duck hunting and fishing. At one point in the day, the party stopped on shore to eat. During this stop, they noticed a storm coming in. By the time they left there were already waves forming as they started out across the lake. The wind increased and the waves were so strong that they would almost cause the vessel to flip over. The boat filled with water and a wave took Harper out of the boat. His wife and child drifted in the boat until they reached shore and were later rescued. No foul play is suspected in this matter and it is presumed Harper drowned.
