MP of the week: Harry March Jr.

This week’s featured missing person is Harry Stanley March Jr., a 76-year-old man last seen in Sultan, Washington on October 7, 1997. He went out to pick mushrooms and never came back, and it took a couple of days before he was reported missing and a search was launched.

It seems probable that March met with some kind of mishap in the woods that caused his death, or maybe just had a medical emergency during his excursion and died of natural causes, but his body has never been found. If still alive he’d be over 100 by now.

Now, I’ve got a nagging backache and the Angel Overstreet case has me wanting to go out and commit some minor violations of a certain person’s Constitutional right against self-incrimination, so I think I’ll just sign off for the rest of the day and watch a cute veterinary or zoo show on Disney Plus. Seeya later.

    Just want to say that this is one reason it is so important to let someone know where you are going and approximately when or if you plan to return.

      Definitely. Many lost hunters’ and hikers’ lives have been saved cause they left a note or a voicemail message.

    I have learned that a hard way. I went hunting and only person that knew the plan was a person I went hunting with.We have had gotten lost, and fortunately(God helped), he found his way out and notified my brother, who led the search party to me(as he is familiar with an area). Adventure “alone in the woods” lasted 4 days, I was already thinking to use my rifle instead of dying from cold and starvation. I should have told to my brother where I am going and that I plan to stay 1 day…..

      What an awful experience! I’m glad you survived.

    I agree about the Overstreet thing. These are the ones that sadden me the most, some little kid who didn’t have a real chance in this life. It doesn’t sound like the mom had much say in the child’s well-being. I mean, if a guy like this is in charge of the child at any point the mom is either just as jacked up or just plain stupid.

    Hi Meaghan. I just wanted to let you know that the circumstances of the resolution of Michael David Thompson’s case were omitted from your update. The update is marked “RESOLVED” but the description of the resolution is missing.

    It appears as though the unfortunate Mr. Thompson wandered away from his disabled vehicle and then perished of exposure. Some of his skeleton was found in the vicinity of his car. RIP

      Fixed. WordPress has some kind of bug going on, where sometimes when I save my edits to casefiles, they don’t go through.
