    Thank you. I remember that face but the name did not ring a bell. My heart goes out to his family who have been left wondering all these years.

    Years ago, I read an account of this case. It was in an old Yankee Magazine dated 1980. I thought it happened at Baxter State Park in Main. I had forgotten the name of the little boy, until I found this. Anyway the story has haunted me since.

    Very sad.

    I think he was abducted. He was terrified of the woods. His big wheel bike was found by the edge of the woods. He never would have wondered in the woods. His parents believe he was taken across the border to Quebec. I think mostly like he was, and raised there by another family. He was a very cute child with bright blonde hair. Also when they put up posters on the Quebec side, there was not even a response. Quebec was (and still is) resentful of any US interference. This happened in the wrong decade. Had it happened now, a much better chance of finding him.

    Still missing: Parents never give up when children disappear

    "On Sept. 1, 1975, Kurt Ronald Newton of Manchester vanished from Natanis Point Campground in Chain of Ponds in western Maine near the Quebec border. He was 4 at the time. Today, he would be 40.

    Kurt was last seen riding a Big Wheel tricycle near his parents' campsite, according to the Charley Project.

    Department of Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland said efforts to find Kurt were historic in scope.

    "One of the largest searches of the decade was mounted up there to try to find him," he said. "All they found was his tricycle."

    After the search concluded, Kurt's parents mailed missing-child posters with Kurt's photo to every school district in the United States.

    His parents, Ronald and Jill Newton, declined to be interviewed."

    You can hold back from the suffering of the world. You have free permission to do so and it is in accordance with your nature.
    But perhaps this very holding back is the one suffering you could have avoided.
