April 17, 1902 (Thursday)

Sunday morning the Mo. Pacific agent E. Nance received a telegram from Redfield stating that a boy was working on a farm near that place, answering the description of Fred Leak, who so mysteriously disappeared from his home, four miles north-west of Bronson some time ago. James T. Lardner on learning the contents of the message, decided to investigate the matter and took the next train to Redfield where he found the missing boy, and easily persuaded him to return to Bronson. No reason is known as why the boy left home.
