Alan John Westerfield & Terry Lee Westerfield
September 12, 1964 Fayetteville, Cumberland County, North Carolina
According to Carl Bock, the boys stepfather, he dropped Alan and his older brother Terry off at Fayetteville's popular Broadway Theater on Hay Street at 5:30 p.m.
The stepfather stated he returned to the theater about 8 p.m. and the boys were gone. When the boys vanished authorities were not sure if the brothers ever made it to the theater. Some employees interviewed said they saw the boys, others said they did not. Neither child was ever heard from again and police think the boys were killed the day they disappeared. Heavy rains from hurricane Dora late that night and the next morning hampered the search. Authorities questioned the stepfather who was separated from the boys' mother at the time. His account of what happened that evening was sketchy.
Army Sergeant Carl Bock worked in the Criminal Investigations Division at Fort Bragg in 1964 and was shipped overseas a year after his stepsons disappeared. Investigators believe Bock was in some way involved in the Westerfield children's disappearances.
Bock has since divorced from Alan and Terry's mother and now lives in Wisconsin. Police in Virginia last interviewed him in 2000. The Westerfield brothers' cases remain unsolved.
Police also questioned the boys' natural father and concluded that he did not take the boys.
