Martha Sue and her husband, Claude Shelton, were last seen in Corbin, Kentucky on May 21, 1971, after tucking their three children to bed at their home in Gerry’s Trailer Park on 18th Street, then drove away in their white 1967 Ford Galaxie 500 with the Kentucky license plate number 937 944.
That was the last time their children would see their parents.
This documentary brings you alongside Adventures With Purpose’s underwater search in Corbin, KY following clues that their 11-year-old daughter Sheila believes she overheard her parents talking, after she was in bed, about going to King’s Truck Stop (about 5 miles away from their home). That is where our investigations begin.

Questions or Want to Tell Us About a Case?
The Sheltons spent much of Friday, May 21, 1971, visiting grandparents in Williamsburg before heading back to their home in Gerry’s Trailer Park on 18th Street.
Claude had been steadily employed for 10 years, and family life seemed fine.
They tucked their three children into bed that night and as Sheila, their 11-year-old started to get ready for bed, she heard her father, Claude, say to her mother, Sue, “Are you going with me or are you going to stay here?”
Martha and Claude walked out the door and that was the last time Sheila, 11 years old at the time, heard her father’s voice.
The Sheltons may have been en route to the Kings truck stop five miles away, but no one remembers seeing them that night.
They have never been heard from again and their car has never been recovered.
Approximately $600 in cash may have also vanished from their home at the same time they did.
As AWP investigated the case, as with all cases, more information and rumors in the community swirled.
Claude was a mechanic and in 1971 you stopped for anybody broke down. There is a rumor that a car was found on the bridge between Shelton’s home and King’s Truck Stop the morning after the Shelton’s went missing. Did they stop to help and did something sinister happen?
It is not believed Martha and Claude left their 3 children and a beautiful life behind on their own for the Sheltons were just one mortgage payment away from paying off their home and Claude also had a check waiting to be picked up at work.
Hug the ones you love for you never know when it might be the last time you see them.
