    The little boy at the centre of Toronto’s oldest cold case disappeared from an Etobicoke street 75 years ago. Pam Seatle with how police have reopened the missing persons case, and the message Richard Marlow’s family has for Torontonians today."

    Toronto Police Service :: News Release #47187
    ''Missing Persons Unit
    416-808-7411
    The Toronto Police Service is recognizing Missing Children’s Day by asking for the public’s assistance with an investigation into the historical disappearance of a 9-year-old boy.

    On July 18, 1944, Richard Marlow was riding his bicycle on Beta Street, in south Etobicoke, when he went missing.

    A significant search was undertaken and several tips and sightings were investigated.
    The case has never been solved and the Service’s Missing Persons Unit has collected and submitted investigative details to the National Centre for Missing Persons Unidentified Remains.

    At the time, Richard (who also went by the name PeeWee) was 3’8”, 50 lbs, with blond hair, blue eyes, and a scar on his right temple by the hairline. He was wearing a dark-blue windbreaker, long blue pants, a striped jersey, and gray cotton stockings with a yellow band around the top. He wore an aluminium ring with the initials K.L. on his hand. His bicycle was left behind.

    Richard had a mother, father, and five siblings. Before his last surviving sibling passed away in August 2019, the Toronto Police Service was able to gather a DNA sample for submission to the National Centre for Missing Persons and Unidentified Remains.

    The Service recognizes that it may be difficult to spark memories of this time 75 years ago. To assist with this process, investigators are asking those who have elderly family or friends from this area to share this video. It has been created in a unique way, to assist those who are elderly or experiencing memory loss.

    Like with all cases of missing children, someone must know something. The Toronto Police Service is asking anyone who has any information about Richard’s disappearance – or any other missing child – to please contact investigators at 416-808-7411.

    No detail is too small or insignificant.

    If you would like to remain anonymous, please contact Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477), online at www.222tips.com, online on our Facebook Leave a Tip page, or text TOR and your message to CRIMES (274637). Download the free Crime Stoppers Mobile App on iTunes or Google Play.

    To review other cases, please visit MissingKids.ca. This website – owned and operated by the Canadian Centre for Child Protection – offers information on missing children from across Canada as well as resources for family members.''

    Only one newspaper article about him in the Newspaper Archives and that was four years later.

    "It was a Tuesday evening, July 18, 1944, on Beta St. Most of the family went to a picture — it could have been Bing Crosby in Going My Way, or maybe Gary Cooper in The Story of Dr. Wassell.
    Richard had been the night before, so he stayed home with his brother. His father, John, was in the military and stationed out of town. His two oldest brothers were fighting in Belgium, as Allied soldiers inched across the country ousting Hitler’s forces.
    In the little blue hat he always wore perched, peak up, on the back of his head, Richard was in front of the house riding his older sister’s bicycle. Brother Gerald (age 15) was just inside, keeping an eye on him.
    And then he was gone.
    The bicycle was left in the yard.
    There was a search. Police scoured the neighbourhood, an army militia was called in. They drained ponds, dredged creeks, checked down wells and outhouses. They looked for days and days and days.
    “There was never any evidence found,” said Gayle Dykeman, whose mother, Aileen Lubbock, Richard’s only sister, was 18 at the time."

    Richard Marlow vanished 70 years ago. His heartbroken family is still searching.

    Is it possible this child, who would be 80 years old now, could still be alive? Also why hasn't there been an age progression done of Richard? I realize he's 80 but you never know...
