PRESS RELEASE 3/26/20 – Jacksonville Beach Police Department Partners with Bringing The Lost Home Task Force in Florida’s Oldest Missing Person Case

The Jacksonville Beach Police Department will be working with a team of Florida investigators and scent evidence specialists to examine the disappearance of Jonathan (Jon Jon) Hagans in hopes of uncovering new evidence and leads. The 3-year-old boy went missing on June 11, 1968, during a family outing at Jacksonville Beach. Jon Jon was never seen again and was believed to have drowned.

A member of the missing boy’s family recently connected with Paul Coley, a Tallahassee-based scent evidence expert and former FBI Forensic Canine Operations Specialist to help raise awareness for missing children and how families can prepare, protect, and prevent this from happening to their loved ones. Their partnership led to a renewed focus on the search for Jonathan Hagans and the formation of a task force to re-examine evidence and data collected during the initial investigation. The Bringing The Lost Home task force includes Scent Evidence K9 CEO, Paul Coley, FSU Director of Emergency Management and Homeland Security, David Merrick, Overwatch Risk Solutions Consultant, Wayne North, Paul Martin, Forensic Archeologist – HRD Specialized K9 Training owner, Ternion Risk Management CEO, Roger Strecker, and UK Expert Police Canine Advisor and Human Scent Trailing Dog Expert, Alun Williams.

The task force will be working closely with the Jacksonville Beach PD General Investigations Unit and the Hagans family. If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Jonathan (Jon Jon) Hagans, please call the Jacksonville Beach Police Department 904 270-1667 or email the tip line (tipline@jaxbchfl.net) or visit JacksonvilleBeach.org
