    Circumstances of Disappearance
    According to police reports, the boys' stepfather dropped Alan and his older brother, Terry, off at Fayetteville's popular Broadway Theater, on Hay Street, at 17:30. The stepfather stated he returned to the theater about 20.00, and the boys were gone.
    When the boys vanished, authorities were not sure if the brothers ever made it to the theater. Neither child was ever heard from again and police think the boys were killed the day they disappeared. Heavy rains from hurricane Dora late that night and the next morning hampered the search.
