Also from part four of The Drifter. Will as a teen fishing with his father, Howard.
They lived in a beach house on the bay. Will’s father owned and ran a small fishing business in town, his mother a doctor at the local hospital. One afternoon Howard took his boat out to sea for his weekly catchment of stock for his business, but he never returned. Water police searched and searched, Will even tried searching himself but no traces of his father or his boat were ever found.
Howard wasn’t rescued till many years later when Will was an adult and had a family of his own.
