Classification: Endangered Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
William was last seen in the back yard of his residence on December 17, 1962, when he was last seen playing in his front yard with his little sister, Jill, and the family’s pet basset hound.

He was last seen outside of his neighbor's house in Vineland, New Jersey around 11:45 a.m. At the time of his disappearance, Jones loved dogs and would do anything for dogs. That day, their mother watched from a window while preparing lunch for the children. She went into a bedroom to check on her 1-year-old son, Bart, and came back to find Jill standing in the doorway, holding a plastic poinsettia.

Billy had given her the plant, she said, and a man had taken Billy.
