    FL - Charles Collingwood, 19, Brevard County, Dec 1979

    Charles Collingwood
    Missing since December 1979 from Brevard County, Florida
    Classification: Endangered Missing
    Vital Statistics
    Age at Time of Disappearance: 19 years old
    Distinguishing Characteristics: White male. Brown hair.

    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Collingwood was last seen in December of 1979 in Brevard County, Florida. He was an inmate at Brevard Correctional Institution. He escaped from the institution in December of that year and has never been heard from again.

    There is a possible suspect in Collingwood's case. Police say he was the suspect's lover. Questioned, the suspect denied the affair and said that Collingwood was his snitch, keeping him informed about other inmates. He said he had no part in the escape. Homicide investigators, aware of his past, weren't convinced. They thought Collingwood was threatening to expose the affair.

    The suspect murdered and dismembered an 8-year-old Michigan boy in the 1950s. He served twenty years in prison for the crime. From 1976 to 1980, he worked as a guard at the Brevard Correctional Institution in Florida; the institution houses mostly teenagers. While the suspect was working there, five local boys disappeared.

    He is also considered a suspect in the 1977 disappearance of 12-year-old Keith Fleming, and Kipling Hess . None of the boys were ever found.

    Bumping case up. Investigators believe that Collingwood was murdered by John McRae, but McRae maintained his innocence until his death in prison. Collingwood's body has never been found.
