In 1961 George Carroll reportedly disappeared from his Long Island residence – and, according to his family, he was never to be seen again. George’s mysterious vanishing haunted his four children for decades afterwards. But it was almost 60 years later that his youngest son, Mike, made a shocking discovery in the basement of the Carroll family home.
George was born back in 1934. When he had grown up, he fought in the Korean War, which took place between 1950 and 1953. Then, by 1961 George had settled in Lake Grove, Long Island, in the state of New York. There, he lived in a little house on a suburban road named Olive Street.
By that point, the Carroll family consisted of George, his wife, Dorothy, and their four children: Patricia, Jean, Steven, and Mike. The Carroll kids were all fairly young in 1961. The eldest, Patricia, was nine years old, while the youngest, Mike, was less than a year old. However, despite their tender ages, the Carroll children’s lives would soon be changed forever.
