    KS - Rachel Pratt, 15, Garden City, 16 Jan 1995

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,583557,00.html

    21 Jan 10

    Garden City police say they continue to work on the case of a 15-year-old girl who disappeared in 1995.


    Rachel Pratt was last seen watching a movie inside her family's Garden City home about 1 a.m. Jan. 16, 1995. She was several months pregnant when she disappeared.


    Police Capt. Mike Utz says the department hasn't had a reported sighting of Pratt for several years. But he says investigators remain hopeful that she may still be alive.


    Pratt's mother, Jan Ramirez, says she still prays for her daughter and still misses her. She continues to hope that Rachel is still alive and will someday contact her family.

    Rachel Pratt 15

    This girl was a very close friend of my cousin. I have asked for more information on the case as I do not personally know all of the details.

    They seem to be treating this as a runaway. Why??? The pregnancy was not a secret by the time she disappeared...bf was alleged father of baby she did not run away with him...she has never gotten a F
    DL, birth certificate or SS card. No record or evidence that she ever gave birth to a baby. Almost 18 years and she has not surfaced nor has there been any new evidence in the case?

    Maybe she dropped the baby off at a church after she had it. Are they required to report that if someone does.

    I'm so surprised that this case has so little information and seemingly little public interest. It doesn't seem like the typical runaway case to me at all. If Rachel were to runaway, wouldn't she go with her boyfriend? Wouldn't that be the only motivation for her to voluntarily leave? Considering she was to testify against him in court?

    On her Charley Project page it states that she was allegedly seen five days after her disappearance with her boyfriend, by a group of girls who claim to have spoken to her.

    I'm concerned that LE spent too much time focusing on this as a runaway case that they let any potential suspects slip quickly through their grasp.

    I'd like to know what happened to her boyfriend/ father of her unborn baby in the many years since her disappearance. Has he every really been investigated by LE, as a potential suspect in Rachel vanishing? It's possible he spent a few days with her after she first disappeared (a few people saw them, I tend to think this could be true and it was them) and then harmed her sometime after.

    We should look for news sources to see if he was ever named as a POI.

    JMO. It seems to me this boyfriend or a close relative or friend murdered her and disposed of the remains in some place where they would be incredibly hard to find. And to the BF's benefit no criminal charges, no child support. A good old-fashioned interrogation may help more than anything, especially if they bring the BF in with absolutely no warning. No news articles about cold cases, etc. JIM.

    Police still looking for missing GC woman after 20 years
    http://www.gctelegram.com/news/local...39b75b3a5.html
    Twenty years have gone by since the disappearance of 15-year-old Garden City girl Rachel Pratt, but for her mother, Jan Ramirez, the pain is still raw. She still holds onto the hope in her heart that her daughter will come home one day. Pratt disappeared Jan. 16, 1995. The case turned 20 years old this month.

    “When it first happened, we thought it was a temporary thing,” Ramirez said. “We thought it would never go on year after year after year.”

    The police department still calls her often. They give her a call once a year to tell her they are still following up on leads.

    From article posted above:
    “We don’t know if she’s alive. We suspect foul play, but there’s nothing definitive to show what happened to her,” he said. “We have talked to the boyfriend on occasion. We cannot rule him out, but we cannot say he is involved because we are still trying to find out if she left on her own accord.”
