Onnie Ogurek, brother of Frank Ogurek of Lublin, strayed with his sister and brother-in-law when returning to the car after picking blueberries one day recently.

In doing so, he went the wrong way and into another swamp. The two people searched for him till dark but were unable to find him, so they notified the sheriff at Phillips.

The next morning about 100 men and two aircraft combed the swamp in search of the boy. On the third day, he was found at a farm home at the edge of the swamp, very tired and hungry.
