Circumstances of Disappearance

Thomas was last seen in Schenectady, New York on August 9, 1971.

He left his grandmother's Swan Street home in Schenectady with $3 or $4 in his pockets and walked a few blocks toward downtown to buy her a gift.

Meuse grew up in Schenectady and attended the now-shuttered St. Columba's elementary school. The boy lived with his mother in California for a few years before returning to upstate New York. He lived in a trailer in Schenectady with his mother, her boyfriend and the man's son. His mother has since passed away.
