    The Advocate Messenger - 11 Dec 1974

    Boone County police believe a hunter missing for a week does not want to be found. Stamper called off the search Tuesday saying Nichols saw searchers and could have contacted them if he wanted to. The search was canceled last Thur when two hunters reported seeing a man they later identified through photos as Nichols. He fled from them but lost a pair of socks. David Sties who first reported Nichols missing said the socks were the type worn by Nichols when he disappeared near the Boone Gallatin county line.

    If he ran off when seeing them, he may have been having some sort of breakdown or was it really cold during that time and he was confused?

    It is a strange case, it is presumed he was attacked by wild hogs all thou their has been no trace of him only the sighting and the socks. His friends that were with him were submitted to a lie detector test and passed. The group were hunting on private property it was also mentioned he was in fear of being arrested for deer poaching.

    You can read the articles all on the link that Coffee56 posted found a couple more however their all around the same information.

    Needless to say ..... its a strange case

    This is bizarre. Why/how would he lose only his socks while fleeing searchers? Had he removed his socks for some reason and simply dropped them when he ran? Does this mean he was barefoot when he ran away or wearing shoes/boots without socks?
    And why would the police come to the conclusion he didn't want to be found rather than thinking there was something wrong if he is fleeing from people and losing his socks in the process? What a shame they canceled the search. He may have been mentally ill, delusional from dehydration, or perhaps hiding from someone who threatened his life. JMO.
