MP of the week: Solomon Rose

This week’s featured missing person is Solomon Gomile Rose III, a three-and-a-half-year-old boy who disappeared from a Baltimore, Maryland shopping center on April 1, 1972. His mother took him and a seven-year-old cousin with her to the shopping center, and Solomon disappeared when his mom left the kids unattended while she was cashing a check. He was never seen again.

Solomon’s nickname is Poon. He was last seen wearing a dark brown fake fur coat, a navy blue turtleneck, blue and white checkered pants and tan shoes. If still alive, he’d be 53 today.

I wonder what his cousin has to say about it all. She probably remembers the incident. I wonder if she remembers anything that could be useful in finding him.

    I can’t even begin to imagine the pain the mom has gone through all these years. I don’t know if she’s still alive but every day must be terrible wondering what happened, feeling responsible (though I certainly don’t think she was being irresponsible from the facts listed- in 1972 people weren’t nearly as attuned to stranger danger as they are now), et al. My heart goes out to everyone involved.
