Appeal

James Charles Stanford has been missing for 48 yeas. Sadly, like way too many others, his disappearance occurred before technology, DNA testing, and missing persons awareness. So the search for him was doomed from the start. On its face, James may have left of his own accord at the time. But even “runaways” do not willingly stay missing for decades without telling anyone. What happened to James after he left, supposedly to travel out of state? Did he make it to his destination?

Did someone approach James, groom him, and lure him to vanish in order to be in their company? Do you have any information concerning the whereabouts of James Charles Stanford? Do you have any information concerning the person (s) who may be involved in his disappearance?
