Three hours later, the boys returned home, the baby carriage empty, and a manhunt that was to assume nationwide proportions began. The boys said that as they played with other children on the swings in the park, a woman "dressed in blue" gave them money to buy ice cream and candy at a nearby confectionery. THEY LEFT the baby. On their return, they said, a man gave them another 3 cents for candy. ! When they returned a second itime, both man and woman were gone and little Harry was missing jfrom his carriage. tity and State police immediately took up the search. A week I later, the Federal Bureau of In- vestigation stepped in, tracing i tips In many other parts of the : country. Scores of crank letters were checked. The Board of Auditors I posted rewards totaling $1,000, ONE PROMISING development was the receipt by Mrs. Browe of a. postcard mailed in Detroit, picturing a Washington monastery on the reverse side. The writer asked Mrs. Browe to "please forgive me for taking your baby." "You have so many, surely you : can spare this one," the inscription continued. "He is beginning to like us and we want you to know." This clew, which police to this day believe to have been authentic, also proved fruitless. Mothers in Toronto's "baby derby," competing for a prize of $500,000 offered by a millionaire for bearing the most children in a 10-year period, were investigated. i AS THE LAST, faint clews failed and possibility that the baby! ever would be found dwindled, Mrs. ; Browe never lost hope. I In 1939, the Browes. having moved away from Sixteenth, tame bac k to the same neighbor-i hood to live in a last desperate attempt to solve the mystery, loiter they moved to a farm in Grosse Pointe Farms. The Browes were living at 20055 Powers, Dearborn Township, when the accident occurred Saturday.
