Circumstances of Disappearance

On August 7, 1983 newly-retired Ocean County College professor John E. Warren left his Squire Village home in Toms River for his daily walk on a dirt path leading to the nearby college. He told his wife he'd be back in an hour. He was never seen again. Township police, the Ocean County Sheriff's Department, Army National Guard helicopters and a State Police helicopter that used an infrared heat detector conducted an extensive search of the area. A Sheriff's Department bloodhound, following what was believed to be Warren's scent, led searchers to a college pond off Hooper Avenue, then proceeded along the edge of the woods and roadway, until she lost the scent about a mile from the college.
