Details of Disappearance

Allen was a sophomore at Southside High School when he was last seen in October of 1978. He left his mother's Fort Smith, Arkansas home to go live with friends in Cedarville, Arkansas.

According to his friends, about three months later Allen and a friend went to the friend's uncle's home in Hartshorne or McAlester, Oklahoma. When the uncle found out the police were looking for the boys, he asked them to leave. They moved in with another man in the area, who had a reputation for sheltering transients and runaways. Police stopped by the man's home about an unrelated matter but Allen thought they had come to pick him up so he ran away. Police were later unable to confirm that Allen had ever been in Oklahoma, however. He may have traveled back to Fort Smith again sometime afterwards. He has never been heard from again. His loved ones have not heard from him since 1978.

Allen's case was originally classified as a runaway, as he was a very independent teenager and had a history of periodically dropping out of sight. However, he has never been gone for very long and had always stayed in touch with his family before. They have not heard from him since 1978. In 1980, the Fort Smith Police Department re-classified his case as a missing person case. Now, foul play is suspected in Allen's disappearance. Texas authorities are assisting with the investigation.
