Circumstances of Disappearance

Martin was visiting the Great Smoky Mountains National Park with family members on June 14, 1969. Martin was last seen between 2:00 and 4:00 p.m. that day as he played a game of "Hide and Seek" in Spence Field in the park, near the Appalachian Trail. He disappeared behind a bush in the area and has never been seen again. Extensive searches of the area did not locate any evidence as to his whereabouts.

At the time of the disappearance, his father described Dennis as a husky, healthy boy who was not particularly afraid of anything. He had some experience camping and hiking in the mountains with his family.
