Daughter of Millionaire Im porter Gone Six Weeks. POLICE SEARCH IN VAIN Dorothy Arnold, Twenty-Five Years Old, Left Home December 12. DISAPPEARANCE A MYSTERY Last Heard of Young Woman Was at Bookstore?Niece of Late Justice Peckham. MISS DOROTHY ARNOLD. NEW YORK. January 26.?After six weeks of ceaseless and heart-breaking anxiety, Francis R. Arnold, a millionaire importer and a brother-in-law of Rufus W. Peckham. late justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, last night ap pealed to the newspapers to aid in the search for his twenty-flve-year-old daugh ter, Dorothy, who disappeared from iier home, at No. 108 East 79th street, the morning of December 12 last and has not been seen since. Mr. Arnold is president of F. R. Arnold & Co., importers of perfumery, at No. 7 Wf3t 22d street. He is seventy-three years'old, and, with his wife, only a few years his junior, is almost in a state of collapse over the inexplicable disappear ance of his daughter. Miss Arnold is a beautifrl young girl and was well known in New York so ciety. She graduated from Bryn Mawr College in 1!KK> and has since been con stantly at the side of her aged parents and her two brothers, who are in busi ness with their father. The tale of the disappearance of the young college girl, as related by former Assistant District Attornev Francis P Garven. attorney for the familv, forms -!Le. , .1? m.?st P,lzl!in& mysteries with which the police and other crime detect [\ave. ,had to cope. It is a tale of a fashionably attired young woman step ping out of her home to spend a couple of hours shopping-, effecting a few pur chases and being swallowed up in the mazes of the metropolis as though she planet*6001*10 the lnhabitant of another Story of Her Disappearance. According to the family's story, the young woman came to her mother the morning of Monday, December 12 and said: "Mother. I think I shall go down town and buy myself an evening gown. I need a new one." Arnold g? WUh y?U" resPonded Jgrs. "Oh. no. I wouldn't put you to that trouble for the world." answered Doro th>, always solicitous for the welfare of others. "When I select the dress 1 shall indP!?nk n?oUver'-hen y?U Ca? ??me down T^rS',^rno,.d a?reed w,th her daughter. Then Miss Arnold, with a smiling fare well. stepped from the house. This was about 11:30 in the morning. She wore a blue serge coat of rich mat-rial, the coat reaching to the hips and cut In at the waist: a skirt matching the coat tan .a larse b,ack fox muff with white points, ar.d carried a black cloth handbag containing between ?2J and *30 in currency. In addition Miss Ar nold wore many pieces of jewelry. After leaving her home, Misa Arnold turned east and walked toward 5th ave nue. Inquiry by the scores of de tectives who have been quietly at woric on the case has shown that she arrived at the branch store of Park & Tilford at 5th avenue and 59th street at a few minutes before noon. Here Miss Arnold purchased a box of chocolates. From Park & Tilford's Miss Arnold, with her chocolates under her arm, took the Jjus down to Brentano's fc;iok' store at 27th street and 5th avenue. Here sli* was well known, having made many pur chases. Miss Arnold secured a book at Brentano's. All Trace of Her Lost. From the moment when the young so ciety girl strolled out of Brentano's, about 12:30 of that Monday afternoon, up to the present time absolutely no trace of her or her movements has been obtained by the family or the scores of detectives who have gone over every inch of tly? neighborhood. The night of December 12 passed with out worriment to the close relatives of the girl. They knew it was frequently her custom to pass the night with one of her girl friends, and although they thought it strange that she did not notify them, they did not become really anxious until the following day. On December 13 Mr. Arnold consulted with Mr. Garven and it was decided to call to their aid all the resources of a private detective agency. The Pinker ton's, %rho were later called into the case, confessed themselves equally puzzled. Then, on the Thursday before Christ mas?his horrible fear almost affecting his reason?Mr. Arnold went to Deputy Police Commissioner Flynn. The old gentleman?soY>s obstructing his voice?laid all the facts before the deputy commis sioner. Flynn turned over the entire re sources of the detective bureau to llie bereft parents. Search in Other Cities. A still alarm was sent to the police of other cities. Not only that, but all the hospitals and public institutions in this and neighboring cities were scoured for traces of the young society girl; health department records were thoroughly gone over; the accident slips at police head quarters were carefully conned. Steamship lines, railroad stations, tele graph offices and every possible avenue that might yield Its quota of informa tion were utilized. The parents and brothers of the missing girl did not spare themselves in the search. They motored about the city, withstanding the grue some sights of the morgue and the acci dent wards of the hospitals?anything that might give them a clue to their be loved daughter and sister. All possible theories l ave been looked into and rejected, until now the detectives and family are working doggedly along ?Imply waiting for something to turn up. Mis. John W. Arnold, a sister-in-law of the missing young woman, who lives In the King apartment lious?, at No. 50 East 87ih street, says: "Miss Arnold is a very pretty younf woman. She was always happy, and I never heard that she had a love affair. Her disappearance is a mystery to us ail. We can't understand It.
