This week’s featured missing person (which I didn’t do yesterday cause I was at an early Independence Day thing) is Charles Anthony Radice, a 76-year-old World War II veteran who disappeared from Lancaster, California on May 15, 1995.
Curiously, his adult grandson, whom he lived with, didn’t bother to report him missing. Sounds pretty sketchy to me, but I don’t know much else about it, so who knows what happened there.
This one is sad to me…no veteran needs to be treated or mistreated by someone especially the grandson. It will catch up with him.
I wonder why he was living with his grandson. Also what happened to his kids, that they did not keep up with dear old dad. A friend has to report him missing. Also, there is no mention of his immediate family. Also, did this guy use the VA for his medical care.
He had two brothers and a sister according to the 1940 census. I found no record of his marriage, and or divorce. The mother and father were from Italy, but the kids were born in Buffalo, New York. When they moved to Los Angeles, California. But it appears they were living there in 1938.
Charles lived at several addresses in Los Angeles, according to Voter records. I also found a address in Lancaster, California in 1995. The address was 44623 Fern Avenue in Lancaster.
His younger brother Michael also lived in Lancaster. I am still surprised there was no information on Ancestry showing when he got married and if he was divorced. Since, there is no mention of a wife. She may have died, but again, no record, or a reference to him being a widow. It might explain why his grandson did not report him missing.
