Perry Otto Corlew (18) - Grayling MI, 1974

Details of Disappearance
Corlew was last seen in Grayling, Michigan on March 15, 1974. He got into a minor motor vehicle accident in front of the Rialto Theater at 8:30 p.m., while driving a car he had just bought, and broke a headlight. Corlew drove away from the scene before the police could arrive. His car was found ninety minutes later, along the side of Interstate 75 about fifteen miles south of Grayling. The engine was running, the lights were on and the driver's side door was open, but there was no sign of Corlew at the scene. There were also no footprints in the snow around the vehicle.
Corlew's family members believed he fled the scene of the accident because he had a poor driving record and was on probation for breaking and entering at the time of his disappearance. He has never been heard from again.
There were several possible sightings of Corlew in the years following his disappearance, and his brother thought he tried to call him, but none of the contacts have been confirmed. Corlew's friends stated he had been thinking of traveling to California, and there was also speculation that he went to southern Michigan or to Florida, but his whereabouts after March 1974 are unknown. His dental records have been lost. His case remains unsolved.
