Marion, Ky. (Crittenden County) – Edward Tidwell was last seen in Marion, Kentucky on December 14, 1981. He told his wife he was going to see a man in Sturgis, Kentucky about a job. He left driving a yellow 1974 Chevrolet Bel Air with the front windshield cracked on the right side, and rust spots in the front.
Tidwell had previously worked as a river deckhand for several river-related businesses, but he wasn’t working at the time of his disappearance and had applied for unemployment benefits. The man he was supposed to see may have been a foreman from a river industry business in southern Illinois, but he has never been identified.
