  • Details of Disappearance
    Frederick Holmes disappeared May 25, 1955, from his parents' farmhouse on Denman Mountain in the secluded woods around Grahamsville.

    Hundreds of men and boys searched the rugged terrain for days. Troopers concluded that the boy fell into one of the gorges that slice across the mountain or that a black bear grabbed him. They could never explain why no remains of the boy's clothing turned up. People searched the crevices and woods for a month. No trace of the baby was ever found.
