Nine the Organiz search for Dennis Lloyd. Martin was about to begin but the team was unsure of where to start about. Two and a half inches of rain had fallen the night before any tracks. Dennis may have left. Had certainly been washed away. Sneddon decided that they should begin. With the areas. Known as drainage is basically natural gutters where stormwater washed away. He wanted to see if the rain had swept Dennis away. Well a few rescue workers check the drainage is the rest of the search party canvass the area. They had more volunteers and better equipment than the Martin family did so they were optimistic. They'd find a soon. Sneddon had helicopters fly equipment to spence field which became their basecamp. Rangers examined the various trails in the area of the nearby paths. Only one hadn't been investigated the previous day so arranger was rapidly dispatched to search it in the midst of all the commotion. Dennis's mother violet. Martin joined the hunt for her son. Her heart was in her mouth as she saw the dozens of people all pulling together to rescue her. It was encouraging to see how many people cared but the clock was ticking and she feared they were running out of time. She wasn't alone in her worries as the Rangers called for more volunteers. Local news stations caught wind of the story. They sent out bulletins to amplify the simple terrifying message. A six year old boy was missing. Send help the call was widely received the assistance they'd requested soon arrived in droves. Everyone from local firefighters to boy scouts showed up all determined to put the Martin's nightmare to an end. The rescue team flew helicopters overhead scouring the area from an aerial perspective. Gps crisscrossed mountain trails and campgrounds. Volunteers tramp through the woods on foot. The Park Rangers even contacted a United States Special Forces unit. That was stationed in the area. The commanding officer Colonel Howard Kinney ordered forty soldiers to join the hunt bill. Violet Martin took comfort in the ever-growing hunt for their little boy. The number of volunteers was ballooning wildly. Surely they find something soon. But by the end of the first day they hadn't uncovered a shred of evidence all the additional eyes and ears hadn't seemed to accomplish anything. The Martin's spark of hope began to turn into dread even with all of their resources at their disposal. Their search team didn't find their first clue until the fourth day on Tuesday June seventeenth of volunteer search parties spotted a small set of footprints about the size. A six year old would leave. The trail vanished into a stream. One of the prince was barefoot and the other left by shoe when he'd gone missing. Dennis had been wearing Oxford's but the team couldn't tell if the print matched that of an Oxford or a more generic sneaker. The volunteers hastily reported their findings hoping that the more seasoned professionals could take over but their hopes it turned out were for nothing the green berets. Who are assisting with the search. Said they'd already been through that area. They argued that the prince had likely been left by the boy scouts who are accompanying the search parties but none of the boy scouts were barefoot and there was only one set of tracks while the scouts were traveling in groups. Some of the searchers thought they should keep looking near the footprints but they couldn't find any other sign of Dennis with this potential lead ruled a dead end. The search teams abandoned. That clue an looked elsewhere on June twentieth. Nineteen Sixty Nine. Dennis's seventh birthday passed with no sign of him. The rescuers were getting discouraged. That Day sneddon gave his team new instructions procedures to follow if they found Dennis dead. Dennis had been gone too long and there was no sign that he was still alive. No one could say what had happened to him. But the prevailing theory was that he'd gotten lost and was killed by wild animals after all the park was home to boars bears and other creatures that could make quick work of his small child moreover it would explain how he disappeared so quickly..

The Hot Summer Sun beat down on them as they looked for any sign of the lost boy. They'd been searching for days. They were growing desperate suddenly. A cry rose out. The searchers turned their heads was that him was their search finally done. They hurried through the brush to catch up to a member of their party. Who stood looking at the ground? He'd found the first piece of evidence in weeks a series of footprints clearly visible in the underbrush the same size as the missing boys reinvigorated. The searchers followed the trail to the banks of a nearby stream where it stopped. The dead end was the perfect metaphor for a hunt that would stymie investigators and the park service for decades. No matter what clues they uncovered or tips. They heard the search team would never find poor young Dennis. Welcome to gone a podcast original. I'm molly and I'm Richard.

Who went missing on a camping trip in nineteen sixty nine? He was only out of his parents eyesight for a few minutes before they noticed he was gone. But that was long enough to vanish without a trace. The abrupt and inexplicable disappearance has led some to suspect nefarious forces where play on June fourteenth nineteen. Sixty-nine the Martin family from Knoxville Tennessee suffered every parent's worst fear losing a child during a camping trip. Their son Dennis leftist father's side ever so briefly but in a matter of minutes he was gone and extensive search was swiftly launched more than a thousand Park Rangers Boy Scouts Soldiers Emergency Service workers and even volunteers combed the area for months. In spite of all their efforts. No trace of Dennis was ever found some believe Dennis was kidnapped by a Predator looking in the woods. Others thought that more mysterious forces were at work. Some have claimed Dennis might have been the victim of bigfoot attack. Even more troubling some have suspected the government may dennis disappear then covered it up but nobody was debating conspiracy theories on father's Day weekend nineteen sixty-nine just like most families the Martins had a holiday tradition. The men always went on a long hike in the smokey Mountain National Park. They're favored three point. Three Mile loop took the whole weekend. Trekking through creeks fields and even part of the Appalachian trail. It was the first year six year old. Dennis would becoming on the trip. He joined his DAD BILL HIS GRANDFATHER. Clyde and his nine year old brother Doug according to his family. Dennis was quiet but it was still very energetic. He took his enthusiasm with him wherever he went. Including the hike starting point cades cove and even though he was young he was able to keep up with the ambitious pace on the first day. They conquered an impressive six miles that night. They camped at a landmark known as the Russell field shelter. It was as simple stone hut but it provided a roof and protection from the elements. The family woke up the next day and got back on the trail the ever enthusiastic. Dennis strode at the front of the group setting the pace for the rest of his family. The four Martins had to cover two point seven miles to reach their next stop spence field. This was a grassy clearing on the border between Tennessee and North Carolina. Along the way the Martin's ran into another family. Walking along the same route coincidentally their last name was also Martin Carter Martin and his two sons were from Alabama. It seemed serendipitous. Carter's boys were about the same age as Denis's brother Doug. The kids all got along as they continued hiking around four o'clock in the afternoon the adults called a halt and they all sat down to rest near Spence field. The dagon Dennis continued to play with the two other boys. They read off and out of earshot from the adults hatched a scheme. The mischievous kids wanted to play a little prank when the hike resumed. They'd split up hide in the woods and jump out surprising their parents doug and the two older boys would go off in one direction and Dennis would have the other way it would be a fun way to keep their parents on their toes from their seats at the other end of the field the adults could immediately tell what their kids were planning after all they knew their sense of humor but in the spirit of good natured fun they let the boys go ahead with their plan at four thirty pm the group got up to leave and the kids ran off setting their prank into motion as the adult started down the trail. The first group of boys only hid for a few moments in no time at all. They leaped out of the woods. Xiaoning Boo the. Grownups pretended to be surprised laughing at their Wiley children. However it wasn't long before they realized something was wrong. Dennis was nowhere to be seen his father bill and grandfather Clyde didn't panic. The boy had only been out of sight for about three minutes. He couldn't have gone far. He was also wearing a bright red t shirt so he'd be easy to spot amongst the foliage unconcerned began calling his name. The ever present wind at spins field carried. Their unanswered shouts far and wide but didn't offer response as the minutes past. They grew more worried. The adults decided to split up and search the surrounding area. Bill hurried along the path calling his son's name to no avail a mile down. The trail. Bill decided Dennis couldn't possibly have made it this far after all bill was fit adult spurred by fear and adrenaline. Dennis was only six. He couldn't have gone a full mile in the half hour. They'd been searching empty-handed. Bill retraced his steps back to the others when they reunited the group told him that they hadn't found Dennis either. Bills Breath quickened. He turned around and went West Toward Russell field shelter. Where they'd last camped. Maybe Dennis had gotten lost and hiked in the wrong direction. Bill scoured the two and a half mile trail when the search proved fruitless. The determined father returned to spence field to keep looking. Meanwhile Clyde Martin searched the entire seven Mile Path back to cades cove with a family had set out the day before it was absolutely no sign of Dennis when Clyde reached the trail head. He notified the Park Rangers of his grandsons. Disappearance with the Rangers help the family canvas the area surrounding the trail on foot and in jeeps they searched every possible place. They thought he could be increasingly distraught. They pulled aside every hiker and fishermen they encountered asking if they'd come across Dennis. No one had seen the missing boy by that time. Dennis had been gone for nearly four hours and it was starting to get dark. Bill told the Rangers that Dennis was quiet so he wouldn't necessarily cry out for help however he was friendly and would respond if strangers called his name. The Rangers and family members continued searching but as night fell and new obstacle appeared a storm torrential rain and bolts of lightening rage. That night almost as if specifically cute to interrupt the search. The ground became muddy and difficult to traverse nearby. Streams overflowed the already difficult task of finding a child in the woods was now seemingly impossible. Nevertheless the group continued their hunt. Throughout the night they wouldn't let darkness floods screaming rain and booming thunders stand in their way as the rain continued to pour. Bill grew more desperate. His boy was out here. Somewhere was cold and probably lost or injured. They were all doing the best they could but the efforts felt utterly hopeless and every hour that passed made it less likely. They'd finding Dennis Alive when we return the hunt for Dennis. Lloyd Martin grows and now back to the story. Sometimes a harmless prank turns tragic. That's what happened on June fourteenth nineteen sixty nine when six year old. Dennis Lloyd Martin disappeared. He'd intended to surprise as family by jumping out of the woods with the other kids on a father's day camping trip but he never popped out from the trees..

"Pause starting to say this is now running but they I mean it is meticulous. It's so worse they weren't they didn't have lines. They actually exactly the right place right time. So the last scene which is in the trailer. There's not much spoiler ages yet. They had enough explosions to do that. Four times and they were real explosions not CGI and this scene George Mackay. I can't say enough good things about his. I actually for for some reason I fought. Danger of Chapman was in nothing but I was wrong. George Mackay he has this kind of traditional quality about him where you could believe leave as in World War One. She's got that face that it like. He's standing there in all time uniform. You're oh you're from that torn. Yeah absolutely. He's he's sort of got stiff upper lip just a good brave old Englishman that scene. There's actually in the trailer. One of the extras actually accidentally runs into him on the ground and it looks so natural because that was a complete mistake. Yeah but it was genius because it looks so real an really encapsulates. The absolute manic manic nature of the wall and going over the top. which is what they were doing at that moment? Talk about it later on our feature about Oscar nominations just to catch chocolate but like naturally have A. I don't know the word is a naturally failed at the reason why this film is cleaning up on the award. Second right right now is because this is the scientist option out of the other nominees in terms of always apple films have got a certain degree of toxicity. Wherever that's Joe Curl Quentin Tarantino taking or the Irishman or emerged for having that net flicks tack to it? Does this warrant is price. I think it absolutely warns his praises as a war movie in captured in that world. War World War One and phonetic crazy things. These kids went through. I think it's absolutely amazing. I mean casting wise. It's genius because the two lads are basically unknowns George Mackay there anymore of course dangerous Chapman. They do an incredible incredible job but they're unknowns which is brilliant. Because you don't want to nate. You don't want to hurry styles. ooh Kirk Sean knows until they had Harry styles. Yeah so that's amazing also every half-hour afoul say you get this kind of cameo for me. Mark Strong Andrew Scott Benedict cumberbatch. Rich rich you we know it. So you've got. These kind of superstars splat Marlon Brando in apocalypse. Now kind of our view of this incredible speech or this incredible KC five minutes. And that's me done goodbye but it's incredible Because you've got those stars and Genius Casting because you've got these unknowns color looking up to these higher ups which are this the stars so works. Amazing new world for that. But absolutely warrants it praise I an icon the my only reservation and throw a bit a bit harsh because at nine minutes shot some of the just lines of dialogue. Not The most naturally acted between the two Roy just which is really feel harsh for saying it but it's just comes off across a little bit wooden in places base really know about that. The I think they both did an incredible job because these it's an action movie. They are these two LAD SCO FU absolute murder to get to where they are and you're watching them crow oh food is shit and over corpses and down river and real like George Mackay particularly is going through the absolute wars film in this movie. We my wife cried for two hours for it. I couldn't handle it because it is just relentless stressful feel is is. It's a stressful film. Bird flu by stop took him out actually scoring this one. I'll tell you what the film community out there around to my husband's side. Obviously people putting this in the high scoring in fact is very similar in terms of audience and critic school. Eight thousand nine hundred tomorrow. Maton eighty-eight it's on the audience score. Bliss let's go someone that says this is a classic. I'm the guy who of what David Sexton one nine from the London evening. Standard he put. This is frigging movie effectively from one shocking set piece to another studying the narrative too many starry cameos. That's that's what he's put facebook. Find out five someone who didn't like kid this guy with Filho from cinema Christ and he is puts. The adventure turns into protest exaggeration of Murphy's little anything that can go wrong happens. Tenfold gives it to our five whether you say that I understand that critique because it's this crazy mission when there's a lot of nearly you know name Mrs but it's a two hour war movies. What do you you one is that they're not God's creature in terms of the day all right product of good fortune in terms of thousand thousand paypal running up a beach? My hundred might for one hundred twenty over the next obstacle and they're just that one person that did actually make it through to the end. Yeah it's kind of like a mash up of a lot of stuff you about from World War One even at school of war stories kind of all in one fitness. Absolutely nothing wrong with that because even more important now that we remember this war hundred finished in two years years ago. No one's alive from it. Obviously we need to be telling these stories in as much detail as possible especially bringing it to a younger generation say I kind of useless useless criticism of it. I am absolutely five five. No questions asked. It's amazing if you haven't seen it go and watch it. It's a tough spence field. It's an incredible technical feat of cinematography. SONOROUS IF I don't begrudge winning winning anything that sounds very. There's a giant. Can there about what you prochet off. But he's thirty five five nine thousand nine hundred seventeen is still do a valuable in cinemas go see it right now in in two weeks time is when the Oscars lands.

It's based on a book and stuff but everyone expected. This is to be Tom. Hanks go look if you want to. If you want your Mr Rogers fixed. There's actually documentary.

"If he were to have slipped, fell mudslide. Any reason to end up in one of those creeks or streams. He very likely could have ended up in the lake itself on we have footprints going in. So we have evidence of possibly him going into the water who we don't have any evidence of him leaving the water and and so not only do you have to search the other side, but you need to figure out how fast this water is moving. And if he did get in. To water and did get pushed around a little bit what he drift down the water a little bit and come out on the other side. If he if he could come out on the side, the tracks would be somewhere else. We'll keep in mind too. We're finding these prints on day four. The speed of that creek or stream would have been significantly greater the night that he went missing with two and a half inches of rain falling then. Yeah, I would argue though to find these tracks, this is probably happening after it rains because the 'cause there'd be deeper so they won't wash away and also have to be after some of the rain where maybe there is a little bit of rain, but you're talking about a six year old. So these are not going to be very deep footprints, right? I get what you're saying. He only weighed about fifty five pounds. What is believe so yeah, he's not a big giant man who's leaving huge footprints in the mud or dirt. Now, I did find some notes from a meeting that was. On Wednesday June eighteenth. This was the quote, unquote first strategy meeting, and I found notes from several people involved in that meeting, but I just wanted to go through some of the notes from the chief ranger. So we all have a good understanding of the search itself. The problems that they ran into and his his notes, say I unable to transport men, the roads are in bad shape due to heavy rainfall that they needed more helicopters. The helicopters actually nullified the need for a huge base camp at Spence field, which they did spend time setting up that huge base camp right ways to time. He also noted that the helicopters were using jet fuel, so they were losing search time by flying to the base four to refuel these helicopters from time to time. He also stated that they should be reaching out to North Carolina because at some point there's going to have to be a cutoff for the search that's being conducted on the Tennessee side. And if you've covered all your ground on that side, he may be on the North Carolina side and you need to search there. He also said that here was one thing that was was didn't make you feel very good. Okay. He said we need a reference map to show areas that have been covered each day in daily, so we can record areas covered in the effort made meaning they, they weren't operating with one big map that they're all looking at and saying, look on this day. We searched here from this time to this time. Nothing found on this day. We searched here so forth and so on. So while we have people at the top trying to organize this search, it's also kind of loosey goosey it seems like you have a lot of people coming into the area trying to help, but we don't have a lot of cohesiveness to this actual search. Look this. This happened in nineteen sixty nine I think because. Of the lack of technology, the lack of experience with putting together search teams, the lack of being able to communicate easily with one another that either leave Dennis would have been found within a day or two. If it happened, you know this coming weekend. He also makes a note the FBI agent. Jim Reich was checking the Martin families background for any possibilities if they were involved in this disappearance of their son or grandson or whomever. Now, the other thing too, and this is disconcerting is that we have on day five. He makes a note to tell select leaders to watch for circling buzzards and no, any strange odors..

And sometimes you'll see in cases of specially a younger child that they bring in tracker before they bring in search units. Right. That's interesting that you say that because you're exactly right, you would have. What did we say? Two hundred forty people just kind of destroying the scene, right, right. Comping all over the area on day three, Monday, June sixteenth, the trail and drainage searches continued an intensive grid search of Spence field was conducted several military helicopters arrived to assist the news media arrives on the scene, and we have forty special forces troops arrived to help as well. Two bloodhounds are brought in and they are used during day three again probably would be more helpful on day one or two because we have now two hundred and some sense that are get in the way of this dogs work. Yeah, after all that rain as well. And then we have the Red Cross that establishes a food service operation for searchers at cades cove. Now, the total number of people involved in day three was three hundred including personnel from the park, a local rescue squad, the Air National Guard. And as we said, forty special forces troops that brings us today four captain June seventeenth. Now, this is an interesting day because at this point we've had no sign of the little boy. However, at two thirty in the afternoon, a set of one shoe on and one shoe off prince are found at this time. So the shoeprint was possibly of an Oxford type shoe. What Dennis was last seen wearing now they followed for three hundred feet until they came to the edge of a branch that feeds eagle creek in North Carolina. Eagle creek feeds, Montana lake ten miles from Spencer field, even after three inches of rain having fell. These tracks were still intact in the mud investigators did not examine the shoeprint finding in detail because the area had already been searched. The footprints could have been overlooked by previous searchers, because it was mentioned repeatedly that there were no footprints all. All over from searchers. The person who found the print used a stick to measure its size in comparison to an adult print. It is noted that there were no small children involved in the search at the time. So what does this mean this a means when you teach out of the same measure? Well, what this does mean is that they can -cluded that it's a child's footprint right? That it's a small footprint. One shoe is on and one shoe his off, correct. And there are no children involved in the search. The weird thing though, like we just said is they did not investigate this finding because the area had already been searched and they found no prince. They believed that they found no prince when they originally searched this area. Yeah, that's strange. Seems like a misstep, their one hundred percent and the scary thing for me and this is you say the tracks are leading towards a river, they're leading towards water. Yes, yes. And then I'd wanna know how deep that water. Was and because if Dennis tried to cross this water, Dennis could drown in the water. Well, what we have here captain is we have several creeks that are flowing into this font Tana lake mur-, Fontana lake. So this lake is huge it. This is not a small body of water. This is a very large lake. So if if we have this heavy rainfall that occurs now we have the sweeping creeks and streams that have strong currents that are leading to this large body of water..

"And turbulent at this time and the three Rangers the family members of the Martin family, they continue to search the immediate area for the rest of the night. The results were negative. Not only did they not find Dennis. They didn't find any clues to suggest where he could have been where he was hiding. So the day that does goes missing, we have three Rangers looking for and plus the family. And plus I, I believe the other Martin family is helping search form as well. Yes. And we also have other people that are camping in the area that are sitting the family and the Rangers because that's how this works. You know, when the Rangers come across other campers, they're saying, hey, this is what we're doing. We're looking for a little boy. This is what he was wearing. His name is Dennis, and can you help us search from the get-go, captain. We're going to be dealing with several what I would call major issues in the investigation and search for this little boy. The first being the obvious. The the rough terrain as well as the two and a half inches of rainfall that night. Yeah, this is not help you find anybody, and it also does not encourage others to join in on the search on these are very thick woods as well. So it's not like he can look into the woods and c. couple even houses back here. You're not even going to be able to see that far back. What we're going to see take place is a massive search effort. And the other thing that I would say is a major problem in this case is it's it's very important to note that the park itself had no detailed search and rescue plan in existence at this time. And what I mean by that is those three Rangers that went out looking in a system, the family and other campers looking for that little boy that night. That was as much of a plan as they had. Okay, somebody gets lost. We send out a few guys. We find the person it's all over with. Don't worry about. Right, right. They have no plan for a massive search effort. So starting on day to the, the weather is moderate. This is Sunday, June fifteenth. Now we're going to start seeing resources and people coming into the area to assist in the search. On this day, we have nine GPS and we have three trucks that are used to transport searchers. They searched trails, the trail search continues, and the initial searches of drainage is begin all hikers and campers spotted in the area are question. A large helicopter was acquired and was used to haul a quip for a base camp at Spence field. The number of search personnel on day two was two hundred and forty people. Now we do have to note that there were poor conditions on that day, and there was also inadequate food and water for the personnel involved. Yeah, nothing pisses me off more. When I go to the woods searching for a missing. Six year old to see that crafts and service really screwed up the spread. Well, there's no sign of Dennis at the end of day two. Okay. And more importantly, there's no actually should say more strangely. There's no sign of him. There's no clues as to what could have happened to him. And the other difficult thing here is mentioned the rain and that affects things having two hundred some searchers that affects other things too..

"Ninety minute walk east. I couldn't find an exact time, my guess is it would be sometime that morning they'd make this walk. It's about an hour and a half walk there there. Now this new spot and they've set up camp. They've spent the day setting up their camp, right? This is the time where we're relaxing were chilling out. The kids are playing, you know, there's no work to do. We're just going to hang out and chill. The kids are playing this hide and seek game running in and out of the woods running around having a good old time. Now they come up with this idea to kind of prank the the parents. But what's we. Weird and one thing that I can't like get over like when we cover cases and there's those moments where you wonder, if if other people feel guilty about something or if somebody second guesses, one of their own personal actions for the rest of their lives. The moment for me is this, we have four boys, three of them decide to hide together and an area and one boy, he's only six Dennis's only six. He's hiding by himself. Now from what I could find captain, it seems like. Dennis was wearing a, we know that Dennis was wearing a red shirt and what it seems like is that one or all of the other boys had suggested that Dennis go hide by himself because he could be easily spotted with his bright red shirt in that area. So he's off hiding by himself. These other three boys are all together. They jump out and it's like, you know, at first is probably like, oh, you got me, and then you kind of wait and you wait and wait. You know, where's Dennis Wise? He not with you guys. And then the boys are saying, hey, he went over that way and he hit by himself. And Now Dan and grandpa are out walking around calling for Dennis's name you. You know how it is. You just explained it right there, but when you call out your child's name when you screaming, hey, you know, you expect him to come running out or at least hear him call back to you on. Like I said, there's multiple reports that say that Dennison. His father saw him go into the woods, kind of watched where he's going to go. Hi, that's where he's going to go hide. Then obviously, because they're playing a game, you pull your eyes off of him. Brian, I guarantee you that he sees that image of his son going into the woods over and over and over and his mind. Well, and you never think you never would expect to look away just for seconds, maybe a minute or two, and then they're gone by. And so let's walk through this because the official search would begin Saturday, June fourteenth at approximately eight thirty pm. This is after the grandfather notifies the Park Rangers that, hey, my grandsons missing, and we've been looking for him me and his father as well as other people, and we can't find him. And obviously they have some things working against them because of the time this took place didn't have cell phones to make calls. I don't even know if cellphones will work there now, but some. I'm way to alert people and stay in the area and have you know the dad, the grandfather, the kids searching why they have helped coming to find, you know, help find this kid. So from the the start of this search at eight thirty, we have three Rangers from cades cove. There are checking trails to and from cades cove all the way out to Spence field and anybody that they come across a long their way. They're going to, you know, some have said interrogate some say question, whatever, right? But any hikers or anybody that they pass on these trails, they're going to ask them, hey, have you seen a boy? What have you been doing? Where were you at this time? So on and so forth. And this produces Adam, this produces nothing. Now, the other thing we have to keep in mind though is there's a heavy rainstorm and when I say heavy rainstorm I mean two and a half inches of rain fell. And this occurred at dark all the stream. Became very high..

"Friday, June thirteenth, nineteen sixty nine, six year old. Dennis Martin was on his first overnight camping trip. This was part of a long standing Martin family tradition of Father's Day outings in the smokies with him. His nine year old brother, Doug his father who was a Knoxville architect. His name is Bill Martin and his grandfather CLYDE Martin. The group spent the first night in a location called Russell field, and they camped with Dr Carter Martin of Huntsville, Alabama and his two sons Russell field is a grassy clearing in the forest with a panoramic view across the smokies the next day, June fourteenth, the group went east on a ninety minute walk to a spot called Spence field. Some quick specifics of Spence field. There were two shelters located there. Now the Appalachian trail, ROY. Runs east and west through Spence field, and there were two trails and one Jeep road that lead to Infrom Spence field to other destinations there at approximately four thirty PM the four boys were playing a game of hide and seek and grassy area of Spence field, and they thought it would be funny to hide and then sneak up and scare the adults in their group Douglas and the other two boys went south and then west little Dennis by himself headed for a spot to the northwest towards the Appalachian trail and into the force. Yeah. And he went into the forest, but his father saw where he went to hide. Literally a few minutes later, the boys jump out of the woods. You know, in an attempt to scare or startle the adult. Ha got, however, Dennis does not jump out of the woods. He does not appear, and he was nowhere to be seen very shortly. The after the adults would ask to mate ten minutes. So at approximately four forty pm, just a few minutes had passed without anyone spotting or hearing Dennis his father. Bill Martin was calling out to Dennis and looking for him. Obviously, Bill then followed the Appalachian trail west for about a mile before heading back and then he headed west again, this time all the way back to Russel field only to return a loan to Spence field, and there's no sign at all. Dennis, there was nothing of his. It was found during this quick search while the boys father was making his journey, the grandfather CLYDE made his way back down Anthony creek to cades cove roughly eight and a half miles and reached the ranger station shortly before eight thirty PM. This was to summon help. And at this point it began to rain very heavily with a very nasty storm. Well. Every parent will know, this is your worst nightmare. You can be in the grocery store and you turn in your child's not there, and it's like your heart sinks all the way to bottom of your gut well, and I want everybody to kind of picture this. Okay, because I think it's easy to work through this and I tried to find an exact time that they had left when they woke up that morning and took off on that..
