Samuel Boehlke

Date of Birth: August 10, 1998

White Male

Height: 4’8”     Weight: 85 lbs

Hair: Light Brown     Eyes: Brown

Missing: October 14, 2006     From: Crater Lake, OR

Distinguishing Features: Samuel has a mole under his RIGHT ear and one on the LEFT side of his throat.




Samuel was last seen hiking with his father at 4:00PM on October 14, 2006.  Samuel ran ahead of his dad and disappeared.  He has never been seen or heard from again.  An extensive search of the park turned up no signs of Samuel.  At the time of Samuel’s disappearance, it was cold, wet and snowy, he could not have survived very long without shelter.  The young boy did have camping experience, but no wilderness survival training.  The search for Sammy was complicated due to the fact that he has Aspberger’s Syndrome, a mild form of autism, which caused him to have an extreme reaction to bright lights and loud noises.  This reaction resulted in over 200 search and rescue workers to not be able to use customary air horns and whistles.  The search lasted for a week, searchers scouring the area with dogs, helicopters and heat sensing cameras.  It is believed that Sammy got lost or injured himself, and died in the woods.  Just a little over a month after Sammy’s disappearance, his family held a memorial service for the little boy.  However Sammy’s mother hasn’t given up all hope, until her son is recovered, she will always be searching for him and that closure only finding him can bring.
