I hope I'm starting this thread correctly. Harvey is my maternal Uncle, and he has been missing since 1947. My mother and I have reopened his case with the FBI in hopes to bring his body home - provided we can find him. Here is the backstory: Harvey Eugene Whitacre, disappeared from a bowling alley on the outskirts of Albuquerque, N. Mexico on the evening of June 30th, 1947. He did not return to Sandia Base New Mexico and was listed as AWOL on July 1st. The day after his disappearance, police found an army cap, a pair of thick lensed glasses, a necktie, and a blood stained shirt with two slashes in the back. He was 20 years old at the time of his disappearance. There is an article in the Indianapolis Star dated January 16, 1954 that tells the story. The last communication anyone had from 'Gene' was to his sister, Rose Whitacre in a letter written June 23, 1947. In 1954 he was declared dead. At this point we have him listed with NAMUS but from what I can tell it's not up yet. My mother has called everyone possible; from the ME in new mexico to the FBI. So far we are just getting more phone #'s to more people. We just want to find his remains and bring him home. Harvey has 1 sibling alive who is 92 years of age. We have sent off for a kit to get her DNA for testing. We are also attempting to get fingerprints from the FBI. I'm starting this thread in hopes that someone can point my mother and I to more ways of aide and to help me comb through John Doe databases. I will do my best to answer any and all questions regarding this. There are MSM links (all seem to be archived) and I do have copies of the article that was once ran in our local paper. His NAMUS case file is: 23362 Photo is below and it's the only one we know of existing. I apologize for how grainy it is. Also attached is the article we have the photo from. Also, I need to get verified for this so I need an email to do so. PS: we do not think the CIA or FBI are involved in his disappearance, despite what he was doing and things he knew of. The amount of trouble both agencies went through to attempt to find him is insane. The wired phones and spent 7 years interviewing his family, because they thought he was AWOL rather than dead. I do think his items found in an alley were staged, as they did too.
