Cold Case is a side quest in Fallout 76 given to you by Miss Annie at Wavy Willard’s Water Park. This side mission basically follows the mystery of Grafton Steel and the missing child of Graton Steel’s owner, Mr. Woods.
Your job initially will be to find what happened to the missing child, only to discover that it was much bigger than just an ordinary kidnapping.
This quest is an emotional ride, with family feuds and a man drowning in his own insanity. We highly recommend that you do this side quest when you are in the area.
Head down towards Way Wilard’s Waterpark and you will find Miss Annie roaming around directly below the Roller-coaster. She is a white painted Handy robot, so you cannot really miss her.
Interact with Annie and she will sing the ballads of one young boi she used to take care of. She believes that he was kidnapped right before the bombings, right here in this area. This will also complete the misc. quest “Contact Miss Annie”.
Head to the security station that is located to the south end of the park, near its entrance. The left side of the building will have an opening for you to head inside. Access the Park Security Terminal and select “Holotape Review”.
Upon reviewing the entries, you will quickly be revealed the location of two Holotapes.
One is inside the safe within this same Security room, while the other one is in the basement of the park.
The basement can be entered, through the employee entrance, by roaming around the left edge of the park. You will find the Holotape inside a cabinet.
Letter to the Media
You will find the Letter to the Media inside the mailbox that the Holotapes will then redirect you to. You will learn about the truth of the situation.
KidSecure ID Band
The KidSecure ID band can be found on top of the Slither Slide in the waterpark. Head to the top of the slide and search the wooden crate to find the band.
Clarksburg’s Post Office
It’s time to head to Clarksburg. It is located directly south of the waterpark if you follow road 96. Here, you must find and enter the post office to find a terminal to search for the key for BOX NUMBER 012 (PO Box 012).
It should belong to an “Otis Pike”, who must be living in Grafton.
Grafton on the Hills
Head to Grafton and towards the houses in the hills to the south. You will find Otis’ house next to a bright yellow house.
Head to the kitchen and read a note “Notice of Termination”. Afterward, head downstairs to the house’s basement and you will find a wooden crate with some goodies and a personal terminal nearby.
You will find the whole truth here: it was just a family feudal gone wrong.
Apparently, Otis kidnapped and took the child we are looking for, to the Grafton Dam. When facing the Dam, walk towards the east of the building until you reach the back, where there is an opening.
Drop down the drainage pipe and you will find five clues leading you to the next location.
Apparently, the lost child (Freddy) escaped from Otis towards the Woods Estate. Arthur Woods, the master of the house, managed to arrange a Vault-Tec to take Freddy to a vault but it is unclear if the kid survived.
Head upstairs and you will find Freddy’s last note on a desk. Report to Miss Annie and give her the news. The quest is now done. Collect your rewards!
