Details of Disappearance Shaw's green 1972 Buick was found smashed into a pine tree off of Highway 40 in Wagram, North Carolina on March 15, 1982. There was no sign of him at the accident scene. The car keys were in the ignition and the headlights were turned on when investigators located the vehicle. The Wagram area had heavy rainfall pass through during the suspected time of Shaw's accident.
Two witnesses reported having seen Shaw walking along the highway south of Wagram the day after the car accident. He has never been heard from again. An extensive search of the area, involving the National Guard and the Army as well as local law enforcement, turned up no sign of him.
