  • Details of Disappearance
    Milton was a charter pilot for Seaback Aviation located at Hooks Airport in Spring, TX. The plane he was flying was skyjacked after picking up a customer in Huntsville, TX for a flight to Houston Intercontinental. He had flown the same customer to Huntsville from IAH the previous day.

    The plane was spotted making touch & go landings in Teague and Rockport, and was located two days later at an abandoned airport hanger in Texas City.

    Milton was never seen or heard from again. A bullet slug was found in the cabin and blood was in one of the passenger seats. The carpeting and several of the other seats had been removed and the plane's serial numbers had been partially covered with spray paint.
