Sixteen-year old Andrew was last seen on Janurary 12, 1965 in Miami, Florida. He had plans to attend a indoor Dancing Party at his high school. His mother, Rosa L. Copper, dropped Andrew off at the dollar store, for Andrew wanted to purchase a few items before going to the party. He bought a hairbrush, a stick of deodorant, and a pair of glasses. Stones left the store at about 3:30 pm, and went right to the party. Andrew never returned home from the party.
Police decided to ask one of Andrew's friends, Chester Brandy Williams, as a possible wittness. Chester, who also went to the party, told police he last saw Andrew leaving the party when it was over. Nobody ever saw Andrew again.
