If a boy disappeared overnight and no footsteps were found (in fresh snow) leading away in any direction then he never left there and those people were covering for what really happened to him.
There were footsteps found. Seventy-five feet of footsteps that just stopped. The foot steps were leading to the well, but
the boy never made it that far.
The one thing the parents have going for them, is respectable witnesses, and an apparent lack of motive.
It would be interesting to go there today, and see if a body could be found.

Weird! I’m from the area and never heard this story before! Checking it out though some believe it to be a hoax, that the same story circulated regarding an Oliver Larch (not Thomas) from Indiana….
So interesting though because a young lad named Tommy Jones was found dead on much higher ground than where he was last seen - same area and just a few years before this story…. I done a thread about it once....
What I don’t get is that the story mentions Oliver Thomas was ‘in a farmhouse on a Brecon hillside’ yet ‘police were summoned from the nearby town of Rhayader’… which is nowhere near Brecon, actually about 35 miles away.

I think I've heard of this before. Different name, possibly a different location. But definitely I have read about a boy fetching water and being carried away. S + F
Found one version!
Oliver Lerch/Larch Thomas disappeared near South Bend, Indiana on Christmas. (about midway down the page under Picnic at Hanging Rock)
