    PA - Robert Keck, 16, Coopersburg, 30 June 1979


    An investigation into the disappearance of a Coopersburg teen hasn't stopped 35 years to the day he went missing, Lehigh County District Attorney James Martin said.

    Robert Keck, a student at Southern Lehigh High School, was last seen June 30, 1979. He was 16. Martin used the anniversary of the boy's disappearance to once again ask for the public's help in providing "any information" and to alert the public that a lead authorities had investigated in May was "fruitless"...

    News reports several weeks ago indicated that law enforcement authorities were conducting an investigation in Pike Township, Berks County, Martin's statement said.

    Keck, a student at Southern Lehigh High School, vanished on a Saturday afternoon after walking away from his parent's home around 1 p.m. He told his parents that he was going to visit his girlfriend, who lived about 2 miles away. He was not carrying any money.

    Friends and family members told police in 1979 that Keck had no reason to run away from home. He had a good relationship with his parents, plenty of friends, and was an average student...

    Keck was 5-feet, 6-inches tall and weighed between 140 and 150 pounds. He had blond hair and was wearing a T-shirt and cutoff jeans when he disappeared.

    Keck was not carrying any money at the time of his disappearance. He did not have a history as a runaway and nothing was amiss in his life at the time to lead investigators to suspect he left of his own accord.

    Keck told his mother before he left their home that he expected to find a ride with someone later in the day. His family members told authorities that Keck often received car rides from friends or walked to his destinations, as he was not a licensed driver at the time he vanished; he did not even have a learner's permit.

    Robert Keck — Robert walked away from his parents' Coopersburg home on the afternoon of June 30, 1979 headed toward a girlfriend's home nearby. He was never seen again. Upper Saucon police, Lehigh detectives and the FBI have searched a wooded area of Pleasantville, Berks County, three times in just over a year looking for his remains. The owner of the 72-acre Pleasantville property has said a woman came forward claiming she and another then-teenager were involved in Keck's disappearance nearly four decades ago. Keck's remains have not been found and no one has been charged in connection with his disappearance. Anyone with information is asked to call Upper Saucon police at 610-282-3064.
