Circumstances of Disappearance
James Lee Haynes, an Army Sergeant, was last seen hitch-hiking to his parents' home in Saulsville to deliver Christmas presents.
Investigators believe he may have been killed by three men with whom he had an altercation at a tavern the day he disappeared. It is believed that the three men ran him over with their car in Raleigh County, drove to Wyoming County, and buried his body in a large hollow on Bolt Mountain.
During a search of the area James' billfold and Army dogtags were located. Bloody rags were found in a hollow tree stump. James' body was not located.
In 1971, an arrest was made in the case but charges were dropped due to lack of evidence. James was declared dead one year after his disappearance.
