Kurt Ronald Newton (4) - Chain of Ponds ME, 1975

Missing Since: September 1, 1975 from Chain Of Ponds, Maine
Classification: Non-Family Abduction
Date Of Birth: June 28, 1971
Age: 4 years old
Height and Weight: 3'8, 45 pounds
Distinguishing Characteristics: Caucasian male. Blond hair, blue eyes.
Clothing/Jewelry Description: A navy blue jacket, a blue sweatshirt, multi-colored corduroy pants, mismatched socks and brown high-top shoes.

Details of Disappearance

Newton was camping with his family at the Natanis Campground in Chain Of Ponds, Maine on September 1, 1975. He was riding his Big Wheel tricycle near the family's campsite when he disappeared between approximately 10:00 and 10:30 a.m. He has never been heard from again.

An extensive search of the surrounding woods turned up no sign of Newton. His tricycle was found at a dump site eight-tenths of a mile from his family's campsite. Police theorized that he became confused while trying to get back to the campsite and went in the wrong directon.

The campground is in western Maine near the Canadian border; Newton's parents speculate that someone abducted him and took him across the border into Quebec. French-language missing child posters were distributed in Quebec with this theory in mind, but to no result. Newton and his parents and sister resided in Manchester, Maine at the time of his disappearance. They had gone camping with several other families for Labor Day Weekend when he disappeared. His case remains unsolved; there is very little evidence available to show what happened to him.
