  • Details of Disappearance
    Adele Wells was last seen leaving her home on November 21, 1958, in Flint, Michigan.

    On the morning of November 21, 1958 in Flint, seven-year-old Adele stayed home from school with a cold. By the afternoon, though, she felt better. Her mom did Adele's hair before sending her out the door. She then stopped by her grandmother's house down the street to show off her hair and left. Adele was on her way to her former elementary school on North Street when she disappeared.

    More than one-thousand searchers scoured the area, but no one has seen or heard from her since.
