Flashback Friday: James Hires

This week’s Flashback Friday case is James William Hires, age 18, who disappeared from Cherry Hill Township, New Jersey on October 17, 1981. It looks like he may have left on his own: he was carrying $1,100 in cash (almost $2,900 in 2015 money, according to the Inflation Calculator), his car was found parked at the Philadelphia Airport, and he was supposedly sighted in San Francisco in 1983. No sign of James since then, though.

I can’t find much on this disappearance. The Whereabouts Still Unknown blog has an entry about James, although it doesn’t really say anything I didn’t know already. If James is still alive, today would be his 53rd birthday.
