Last week, the first cousin of a journalist and actress missing since 1963 contacted me about the case I recounted three years ago. The caller’s father became an amateur sleuth when his sister vanished. According to this family, investigators today may be close to locating Jane Clement.

Autumn 1959, closing night for the Southeastern Louisiana College stage play “Suspect,” and news reporters from three Hammond newspapers had questions – not for the play’s lead, Carol Cook of New Orleans – but for freshman actress from Baton Rouge actress in a supporting role, 18-year-old Hannah Jane Rowell.
