Steven Bibb passes along the FBI's slim file on Jean Spangler, 14 pages, he says. Most of it consists of memos asking whether the bureau should maintain a missing persons file on her.

However, her mother's letter to President Truman, written at the suggestion of Ronald Reagan, is an undiscovered treasure, full of heartbreak.

Thanks to Steven for sending this and to you for posting it. I had never heard of Jean Spangler. Her disappearance is tragic.
