    NJ - William 'Billy' Jones, 3, Vineland, 17 Dec 1962



    William Ebenezer Jones

    Non-Family Abduction -- Missing Since: December 17, 1962

    Missing From: Vineland, New Jersey

    Height: 3'0" -- Weight: 30 lbs -- Hair Color: Lt. Brown -- Eye Color: Blue

    At the time of his disappearance, William had a vaccination scar on his left outer arm which is shaped like a giraffe. He goes by the nickname Billy.


    William was last seen in the backyard of his family's residence in Vineland, New Jersey around 1:00 pm on December 17, 1962. He was playing with his 2-year-old sister and the family dog while his mother watched through the front window inside the house. William's mother went into a bedroom to check on her other son. When she came back out, William's sister was standing in the doorway, holding a plastic flower. She said that a man had given her the flower and taken William. An extensive search of the area turned up no sign of him.

    So sad!

    And I read that his Mom always brought Christmas presents for Billy in the hopes that he would come home some day. I wonder if Billy's little sister Jill was able to get a description of the abductor or any information about him? Or how long Billy's mother was in the other room checking on Bart, (her other 1-year old son) when this happened. Very heartbreaking.

    I read this website from time to time. It has a bit more info posted by users.

    William Ebenezer Jones III, 3, NJ, 1962 - "Billy" - Cold Case Investigations

    It looks as if there is an age progression now for William.

    Bump for William. Inquiring on the same question as NW above,

    Is there anything known about the sister and brother? Are they still looking for him?

    I just stumbled upon this case on CP. How terrible, kidnapped out of their back yard just as mom turned her back for a moment.

    I am going to research this one. There is a good chance at his age at the time he is still living having been raised by the abductor. He probably doesn't know he was snatched. They should have fingerprinted the flower.

    I did a blog on Billy. http://genkidjericho.blogspot.com/20...aka-billy.html
    There is so precious little out there about him. I even Google news archive searched and came up blank. I wonder if his sister is still searching for him. Maybe she would come on here. Also, maybe a local paper could write a piece on Billy's case still being unsolved.

    Thank you for the blog Rpipergirl,

    It could be possible that the abductor took Billy because they "wanted a child to raise." How tragic. I was wondering if Billy's sister remembered any physical description of Billy's kidnapper? Totally agree that the plastic flower should have been analyzed as evidence. Thank you for your kindness and support in this case.

    Kirchner, along with his police colleagues Officer Bob DeMarchi and Lt. Matt Finley, reopened the case in 2009. They have the binder of the original reports the case’s first responders pounded out on typewriters

    Let's hope that by reopening this case, some closure will come to it. The saddest and most painful circumstance, of which there are many, is that if Billy is alive, he probably has no memory of who he really is. Thanks to all for your courage and support in this 49 year old case.

    Based on the story at the link above, I have a question. Why don't the investigators consider this an abduction case? Little Billy was taken out of his yard. Are they just calling it a missing persons case?

    Billy turned 53 yesterday. Hope the family hears something soon.

    Jill, have you done a DNA profile for him?
