    Here is a link to her Florida Missing/Endangered flyer:

    http://www3.fdle.state.fl.us/mcicsea...D=974&case_nbr

    The find-missing-children.org website says "Melissa was last seen walking to her friend's house on Patricia Drive, Pensacola, FL at 8:00 p.m. on 6/25/92. She never arrived at her friend's house and foul play is suspected."

    Their info doesn't seem to be correct. However, here is a link:

    I wonder who last saw Melissa leave her boyfriend's house - her boyfriend? Or was there an independent witness?

    The face of a teenager who disappeared in West Pensacola more than 19 years ago is appearing on billboards across the Panhandle this weekend.

    Melissa "Missy" Eck left her boyfriend's house about 8:30 p.m. on June 25, 1992, headed to a friend's house on Patricia Drive. No one has seen her since.

    In honor of the 13th annual Florida Missing Children's Day on Monday, members of the Florida Outdoor Advertising Association have donated time on electronic billboards across the state.

    Melissa Eck

    It is pretty much a no brainer that her boyfriend killed her. She left her purse at his house, which means she never left the house. Check behind the house or in the basement and you will find her body there.

    Has her boyfriend ever been cleared as a suspect? Just because she left her purse at his house doesn't make him her killer to me. Maybe she was in a hurry or emotional distress when she left his house and just didn't think about taking her purse.

    All of the sites say that she was last seen leaving her boyfriend's house and that she never arrived to her intended destination. I'm assuming her boyfriend was the one who said this and I'm wondering how much LE investigated this story. As well as his whereabouts for the rest of the night. It's always possible that something happened while on her journey though.

    It's 23 years tomorrow and I'm hoping they can solve her case.

    It seems her boyfriend was, and remains, a person of interest.

    The girl, age 15, was last seen in 1992 by her boyfriend Brian Kittle, also 15, after the couple got into an argument. Kittle claimed that he left her alone on the street after their argument. Eck supposedly headed to a friend’s house, but never made it.

    She hasn’t been seen since that night; Kittle remains a person of interest in the unsolved case.
    The teen’s disappearance was originally treated as a missing persons case and not transferred to the Homicide Division until after statements from Kittle and witnesses led investigators to believe that “something just wasn’t right” about the whole situation.

    I wonder who the other "witnesses" are and what they said. I doubt there were any witnesses other than the boyfriend to Melissa's alleged disappearance. It would be interesting to know more about their relationship though, and about the boyfriend generally. Assuming he did kill her, how does a 15 year old dispose of a body without any help?

    FWIW, I found a man named Brian Kittle (born 1977) online. He is a registered sex offender. Don't know if this is Missy's ex-bf though.
