Missing child found after 50 years
The Lost Child of Philomena Lee: A Mother, Her Son and a 50 Year Search by Martin SixsmithWhen she became pregnant as a teenager in Ireland in 1952, Philomena Lee was sent to a convent to be looked after as a “fallen woman.” Then the nuns took her baby from her and sold him, like thousands of others, to America for adoption. Fifty years later, Philomena decided to find him.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the Atlantic, Philomena’s son was trying to find her. Renamed Michael Hess, he had become a leading lawyer in the first Bush administration, and he struggled to hide secrets that would jeopardize his career in the Republican Party and endanger his quest to find his mother.
A gripping expose told with novelistic intrigue, Philomena pulls back the curtain on the role of the Catholic Church in forced adoptions and on the love between a mother and son who endured a lifelong separation.

Or maybe the missing boy who sparked the largest search in the history of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park was already past saving. He never came home. Nearly 1, searchers — from park rangers and FBI agents to backcountry hunters and Green Berets — combed a stretch of nearly 60 square miles and walked away empty-handed. Lessons learned and mistakes made in the failed search have become textbook training for rescuers and outdoorsmen the world over. But not a single verifiable trace of the boy has come to light in the decades since. The Martin family clung for years to the hope Dennis might have somehow survived — maybe wandered out of the park on his own, dazed by hunger, thirst and the elements; maybe kidnapped by some sinister stranger who saw an opportunity and seized it. Park officials and the last of the men who tried to track him doubt he lived long past the first night.
