PARENTS CAN'T FIND FRED BELL
New Britain Lad Has Been Missing About Five Months
(Special to the Courant)
New Britain, Friday, Nov 15
The police have been asked to try and find Fred Bell, the son of William Bell of No. 56 Lawlor street. The boy's sisters called at the police station yesterday afternoon, while Detective ??? Samuel Bamforth was at the desk, and showed much anxiety as to the boy's whereabouts. They told the officer that they came over from England about four or five months ago and they had not seen him at all. He had been gone so long that they were greatly concerned about him. The last day they had heard of him was in the spring, when he was in Middletown. Young Bell has given considerable trouble since he has been here. He came over from England about a year or so ago, and he had not been here but a few weeks before he disappeared from home. His father called at the police station greatly alarmed over the boy's absence, as he had been in the country so short a time. Again the police heard from Bell later, when he was caught one day about the Corbin Screw Corporation factory atarting a fire under the boiler of the hoisting machine. It is believed by the police that the boy is weak minded on account of his peculiar actions.
