Port Jervis, Nov. 3—Letter carrier Frank L. Bock, of 85 Hudson street, was attending the meeting of the Port Jervis Automobile Club, in Hotel Mitchell, when his Ford car was stolen. After an all-night search the car was found at Pierson’s crossing on the Erie near Otisville, where it had been abandoned on account of the supply of gasoline having been exhausted.
The parties had stopped at a farmhouse at Cuddebackville in an endeavor to purchase some gasoline, but did not succeed. They asked the way to Newark, N.J., and that was the last seen of them.
