JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Beach police have reopened what is being called the oldest missing persons case in Florida in hopes of finding out what happened to a 3-year-old boy almost 52 years ago.

Little Jonathan “Jon Jon" Hagans went missing while on a family trip to the beach on June 11, 1968.

The police force is teaming up with the Bringing the Lost Home Task Force to gather new evidence in the case. Initially investigators thought the child drowned.

His younger brother,Joel Hagens of Tallahassee, has helped the police force there get a bloodhound, named Jon Jon, to help look for missing persons.
