Kevin Mahoney has been missing for 12 years – nearly half as long as he’d been alive on Oct. 2, 1993.

That was the day he left a friend’s house and disappeared.

Fargo police issued a statement Wednesday once again appealing for leads in one of the city’s oldest missing-persons cases.

On the day he disappeared, Mahoney, 25, left the home of his friend Ben Kukowski to walk to the home of his brother in south Moorhead.

But Mahoney never arrived. After not hearing from him for a couple of days, his sister, Michele Eisenpeter of Dilworth, stopped by Kukowski’s house and was told Mahoney had left. The family then contacted police.
