Jason mysteriously disappeared on May 1975. During that time he was reportedly playing with his brother and three other kids. He told his playmates that he wanted to go home and he went into a fire station that is at the bottom of a hill. The place where he lived is not too far from there, however Little Jason had to pass the house of Woodmansee.
