    The number of men and boys under 21-1472-reported missing, almost doubled the number of women-876.

    Among the 31 young men and boys under 21 still missing, is Kenneth Hager, 11-year-old mentally handicapped youngster who disappeared April 9 while playing on the street near his home in the 1600 block of Lansing Avenue.

    Four boys missing include: Robert Ladany Jr., 14, of the 600 block of South Lehigh street, who has been missing since October 25; Lawrence E. Peters, 15, reported missing from his home in the 200 block of South Gilmor street December 12; Joseph Redolfi, 17, of the 3700 block of Claremont Ave, missing since December 27; and Gordon T. Powell, 15, missing since December 13.


    I wonder if any of the other boys missing that year were ever found?

    What a sad story, that poor little boy.
    I was really surprised there were that many missing people in the 40s!! I looked up all the names listed and didn't find any information about them so I'm hoping that means they were found. I did find information about a Lawrence E. Peters, it was on a military website for Navy personnel that were not recovered about WWII. I do not know if this is the same Lawerence E. Peters though. I would guess to say not since it says that he was 15 when he went missing. I don't know if this list is going missing in the same year as Kenneth or just still missing at the time. This Navy member was missing in '44.

    Off topic but I thought it was interesting.
