    Ft. Jackson MPs reopen case of boy who disappeared 42 years ago

    What started out as an ordinary spring Sunday on Fort Jackson ended up as a day shrouded in mystery that still occupies hearts and minds 42 years later.

    On April 23, 1972, Maj. Joe Woodward, then the staff judge advocate on post, was mowing the grass outside his home in the officers' housing area. His 9-year-old son, Michael, was playing outside nearby. At some point, just before noon, Michael disappeared without a trace. The case of the missing boy attracted widespread media attention, but despite the efforts of local and national law enforcement agencies, Michael was never found and the case went cold.

    [snip]

    After the boy was reported missing, a massive search was conducted. The search party included more than 400 Soldiers; volunteers on horseback, on motorcycles and in jeeps; and three helicopters from the 498th Medical Unit and the Fort Jackson Aviation Division.

    I would like to know more about the eye injury? May have left him blind?

    Charley Project says he sustained an injury to his eye in a fishing accident prior to his disappearance. The injury hadn't healed yet, so I guess they think there's a chance that it caused blindness if he didn't get continued treatment for it after he disappeared.
