Details of Disappearance
Hattie was last seen playing in Rock Creek Park, Washington, DC, on July 21, 1961. She was playing with her brother and other children. She was seen talking to an unknown white male at the time. Two young men saw Hattie being helped into the front seat of a dull, blue-grey older model car with dark tags in a parking area adjacent to the park. The man who owned the car matched the description of the man who had been seen in the park. Dogs tracked Hattie’s scent to the parking area where she was witnessed entering a vehicle. The man wore a white shirt, gray trousers, and a black belt. He had brown hair. The man was never identified and Hattie was never located.
