D.C. Mother Learns Son Missing Since May Is Prisoner

Word from the Navy Department yesterday that her son was a prisoner of the Japanese in the Philippines was received happily by Mrs. Esther Tinker of 502 A Street Southeast, who had received no news of him since last May, when he was reported missing.

Last direct word from Seaman First Class Charles Richard Tinker was a cablegram on Christmas of 1941, a month after he had gone on overseas duty. His mother told The Post yesterday that she was pleased to have assurances he is alive.

Tinker, 22, was born in Knoxville, Tenn., and came to the District in 1938. He attended the University of Arizona before enlisting in the Navy in 1941.

Tinker’s wife is in Tucson, Ariz.
