On the evening of October 25th, 1994, a 23 year old woman frantically knocked on the door of the McCloud family in the small town of Union, South Carolina. Hysterically, she told a tale of a lone gunman who stole her car and sped off with her two children in the back seat. The people of Union supported the young mother as the media descended on the town. Police searched the woods and parks for Michael and Alex as helicopters flew over John D. Long Lake looking for the boys. No one suspected that the pretty young mother who tearfully pleaded for their return could have been responsible.

    You did a great job on this one. I remember it well. It broke my heart. After this happened my parents and my dad’s brother and wife went to the Long Lake to see it. (My uncle had investigated the genealogy of the family and reported to us that my dad’s family (Savage) used to own the lake and a lot of acreage there., many years ago. ) weird. My parents said it was a sad place to visit
