Distinguishing characteristics, birthmarks, tattoos : Caucasian male. Black hair, blue eyes. Conner's nickname is Chuck.

Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Conner was last seen in Lima, Ohio on August 10, 1957. He was celebrating his birthday, drinking in Ralph Forsythe's home in the 200 block of east McKibben Street. Conner, Forsythe and three other men were sitting in Forsythe's kitchen when Forsythe accused Conner of stealing a gun and then shot him in the head.
Their companions fled the scene in panic. One of the witnesses went into a local bar and told the bartender what he had seen. The police were at first skeptical of the story, as the other two men didn't come forward to corroborate it until the next day.
When authorities went to Forsythe's home, there was no sign of him, his wife or Conner. There was blood in the kitchen and a bullet hole in the wall.
Forsythe was arrested for murder about 24 hours after the shooting. He was convicted of manslaughter in December 1957, after a three-week trial. A critical witness was the caretaker of a park in Cadiz, 200 miles east of Lima, who saw Forsythe and his wife washing out Forsythe's Ford Courier.
The couple left bloodstained rags, clothing and newspapers behind. When the Ford Courier was eventually located, water and human blood was inside it.
Forsythe admitted he had pointed a gun at Conner, but said he was only joking and it was loaded with blanks. In 1967, his conviction was overturned on procedural grounds. The state opted not to re-try him and he was released from custody; many of the witnesses had died and evidence had been lost in the intervening years.
Forsythe died in 1983, without ever disclosing the whereabouts of Conner's body.
It's possible that a body found in Bedford, Pennsylvania in November 1958 is Charles Conner. The dead man was nicknamed "Mr. Bones" and had been shot in the head.
Bedford is 365 miles from Lima. "Mr. Bones" is about Conner's size and Age at the time of disappearance: , and a forensic sketch of what he would have looked like in life resembles Conner's photograph. The sketch is posted with this case summary.
There are no dental records from Conner, but police have obtained a DNA sample from a relative and sent it in for testing. He was a factory foreman at the time of his disappearance, and had gotten divorced just two weeks previously. His ex-wife died in a fire in 1960, his father died 1966 and his mother in 1974.

September 2021 updates and sources

A missing person is a person who has disappeared and whose status as alive or dead cannot be confirmed as their location and condition are not known. A person may go missing through a voluntary disappearance, or else due to an accident, crime, death in a location where they cannot be found (such as at sea), or many other reasons. In most parts of the world, a missing person will usually be found quickly. While criminal abductions are some of the most widely reported missing person cases, these account for only 25% of missing children in Europe. By contrast, some missing person cases remain unresolved for many years. Laws related to these cases are often complex since, in many jurisdictions, relatives and third parties may not deal with a person's assets until their death is considered proven by law and a formal death certificate issued. The situation, uncertainties, and lack of closure or a funeral resulting when a person goes missing may be extremely painful with long-lasting effects on family and friends. Several organizations seek to connect, share best practices, and disseminate information and imAge at the time of disappearance: s of missing children to improve the effectiveness of missing children investigations, including the International Commission on Missing Persons, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), as well as national organizations, including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the US, Missing People in the UK, Child Focus in Belgium, and The Smile of the Child in Greece.
