Circumstances of Disappearance

He left his parents' East Sixth Street house in Oswego about 6 p.m. "to go for a short walk" and never returned.

Heagerty had left home before, but his parents had always heard from him. He once found himself in Philadelphia looking for his brother. On another occasion he ended up in Ohio where an aunt and uncle lived.

Police said that when Heagerty went missing he may have been trying to get to Schwenksville, Pennsylvania to contact a relative. Later in 1976 there were also unconfirmed reports of a person matching Heagerty's description in Pennsylvania.
