    NY - Dean Heagerty, 19, Oswego, 19 Nov 1976

    Dean's brother Paul will join this thread shortly to correct dates, birthdate, vitals. Dean went missing in 1976, yesterday was his birthday. He, like my sister Judy, was 19 when he vanished.

    Paul, you take it from here! mDNA has been submitted, and the case has recently been picked up by the Oswego City Police Department cold case unit.

    Please, help Paul in this journey. Dean was a good kid - there wasn't any indication of foul play at the time of his disappearance. No one has seen him in 36 years.

    Oswego police seek clues in cold case 39 years after man vanished


    Nearly four decades after he disappeared, authorities are again asking for help in solving the mystery of what happened to Dean Heagerty.

    The 19-year-old was last seen on Nov. 19, 1976. He left his parents' East Sixth Street house in Oswego about 6 p.m. "to go for a short walk" and never returned.
    He later attended State University of New York at Oswego, but left after developing a "depressed and confused state of mind," his mother said. He was under a doctor's care for treatment of a nervous condition. At the time of his disappearance, he was reported to be suffering from some degree of memory loss.

    Heagerty had left home before, but his parents had always heard from him. He once found himself in Philadelphia looking for his brother. On another occasion he ended up in Ohio where an aunt and uncle lived.
