    “May have gone to Florida.”

    I wonder why they thought it was a possibility. Did they have family there? Did they want to move there for jobs? Did they vacation there? Why Florida?

    I dont know where that info comes from either, it looks like they were on a camping trip near the coast and had an accident when they took the motorboat out. Maybe when they didnt come back home when they said they would their parents thought they might have gone to florida. The overturned boat was found 5 days later so its unlikely they went anywhere unless it was a staged accident. (Or maybe ive watched sleeping with the enemy too many times)

    Im frustrated that i cant find anything more about these boys on google searching. 2 old newspaper articles and an obit for woodrow senior - that's it!
    Surely three missing young men would have more online presence?

    I have a namus account. Does anyone know if the public can add mps to it?

    Had some help digging into this case.
    Another search for these 3 was conducted in 1965 (cadaver dogs, search and rescue...) Only remains of a tent and some camping equipment was found.
    they were all declared dead circa 1966.

    I find it odd that there is no mention of the two sons on woodrow seniors obit, only their youngest son
