    Details of Disappearance
    Howell was last seen playing with his sister, outside of their family's home on West 13th Street in Sterling, Illinois on May 28, 1969. They were going to build a cage for Howell's birds, and his sister went inside for tools. When she returned, the boards Howell was going to use to make the birdcage were scattered along the street and Howell had vanished. A neighbor reported his disappearance to police at approximately 10:35 p.m. that same day, after his parents spent the night searching for him.

    There were several reported sightings of Howell after his disappearance, but he was never found. Searchers looked in gravel pits and water areas, particularly Elkhorn Creek and Rock River. Howell's case remains unsolved; the circumstances surrounding his disappearance are unclear.
