In the 342nd squadron history the only mention I've found is: "We lost another pilot on the 19th when four planes were patrolling a convoy east of Leyte. While over the area the #4 man F/O James D. Larimore broke formation and then called in that he was going to bail out. No one in the flight could see any parachute however nor any trace of his plane. They searched the area for a half-hour but could see nothing. F/O Larimore has not been heard from since and it is difficult to surmise what happened." I'll keep looking for more information and checked Fold3 for a MACR of F/L Larimore.
