CO - Robert Thomas Pillsen-Rahier, 15, Colorado Springs, 6 July 1990

Pillsen-Rahier was last seen at approximately 8:45 a.m. on July 6, 1990 in the vicinity of the 13500 block of south 8th Street in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He was staying at the now-defunct Cheyenne Mesa, a treatment facility for adolescents with mental and emotional problems.

That morning, Pillsen-Rahier called his mother and insinuated that something was wrong, but told her he could not say exactly what was troubling him because the call was being monitored. His mother immediately called the facility to make arrangements to visit him, but was told that Pillsen-Rahier was on an outing. Later the day, a Cheyenne Mesa employee told Pillsen-Rahier's mother he had run away. He has never been heard from again.

Authorities are not certain what happened to Pillsen-Rahier. He has no history of running away and his mother does not believe he ran away. She stated that even if he had, it would be highly unusual for him to have no contact with his loved ones for this long. Pillsen-Rahier's mother had a close relationship with her son at the time he went missing. There is no evidence of foul play in his disappearance. His case was reclassified to a runaway to endangered missing several years after his disappearance; it remains unsolved.

How strange that the facility would claim he was out on a trip wheh clearly he was not. My guess is something was going on to do with someone in charge at the facility that had somehow reached a crucial point!

It would be interesting to know is staff etc at this place were thoroughly questioned.

...Robert has not been seen since.From the beginning, the case has been treated as that of a runaway teenager. Jean, however, insists her son wouldn't have run away -- at least not in the manner suggested for the past 20 years. "When I received the police report, the first thing that caught my eye was this time right here," she says while pointing to a notation that says 8:45 a.m. was the time of Robert's disappearance. "This was about the time that I was on the phone with Bobby." The police report also lists Robert's clothing at the time of his disappearance -- a blue shirt and black pants. "I have the blue shirt and black pants," Jean says. "To this day, it doesn't appear like any of his clothing is missing. I have his clothing."

There are some articles that are pay per view that I can't access about Cheyenne Mesa.

Can someone alleviate my fears and tell me that this place did not treat Reactive Attachment Disorders and also was not using the many forms of treatment for that and various other psychiatric disorders that were proven to end in death of a child? TIA for anyone that can fill me in on this place.

No chance that this is him, is there?

https://identifyus.org/en/cases/8361

Estimated age Adult - Pre 30 (match)
Minimum age 18 years (3 years too old)
Maximum age 25 years
Race White (match)
Ethnicity Other (???)
Sex Male (match)
Weight (pounds) , Cannot Estimate
Height (inches) 68, Estimated (match, Robbie was 5'9)

Probable year of death 1991 to 1992
Estimated postmortem interval 1 Years (Robbie disappeared in 1990, and the 1 year might just be a low-ball estimate?)

the age is a bit off, but he was a bigger teen, so maybe thats not such a problem?

Mesa is 4+ hours away, but it looks like mostly a straight shot down i-70, and in the early 90s, pre-internet, that would likely be far enough to dump a body and not have it connect back.

What a sad story...Poor Robbie. To me it sounds like Cheyenne Mesa could have to do with his disappearance...

seems pretty likely to me. at the very least they were negligent if they didn't inform the parent directly when a minor in their charge went missing. the poor mother didn't know until she called them and then they told her he "ran away."

i would really love for her to have answers soon.

What troubles me in this case is that all of Robbie's clothes, INCLUDING the two pairs of shoes he had at the facility and the clothes he was supposedly wearing when he disappeared, were returned to his mother.

Can anyone offer advice on how to obtain records from the now defunct facility?

my guess is that due to HIPAA laws (medical privacy) the only person who could actually view those records would be his mother.

i am skeptical they even exist though. does anyone know if this place was public or private? im getting the impression it was a private place which makes me think its even less likely they are still around :/

Bobby's mom and younger brother talked about his disappearance on an hour-long radio program last month:

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/missing...ce-july-6-1990

His mother says he had bloody underwear during a visit home, two weeks before he went missing. She filed a report, nothing ever came of it.
