Finding Father

Andrea Richardson Stowers was 7 years old when her father Dale left on a Cold War military mission from which he never returned. Dale’s work was classified, so Andrea never found out how he died. Andrea’s mother believed it was a government cover-up and convinced herself that Dale was still alive.

Decades later, Andrea found a piece of paper behind an old photograph that led her on a quest to find out about her father’s death - and his life. Andrea talks with Dick Gordon about uncovering the mystery of the “cloud chasers” and finally making sense of her family’s past.
