Details of disappearance and psychic work by Brian Ladd (login to view entire case )


Bridgeman was last seen in Thurston County, Washington on January 1, 1963. He was having a visitation period with his six-year-old son at the Barrett Motel on Martin Way east when he left the child alone, saying he had go to see his father. Bridgeman never returned and has never been heard from again. Two days later, the hotel manager took the child to his uncle's house.
Bridgeman's children initially believed he had abandoned his family willingly to seek a career in the music industry. At the time of his disappearance, he was a country singer and guitar player, and had a hit song that frequently played on local radio stations. Investigators no longer believe he left of his own accord, however. The Social Security Administration doesn't report any earnings for him since 1963, and none of his loved ones have heard from him in the decades since his disappearance.

Bridgeman's disappearance remains unsolved. Foul play is suspected.
