Details of Disappearance

Robert was last seen in Kennnebunk, Maine in August of 1964. He was last seen at his residence on Hovey Street where he lived with his mother and stepfather. He has never been seen or heard from since his disappearance. Robert was not reported missing when he initially disappeared.

According to investigators, Roberts parents moved out of the residence shortly after he went missing. In 1968, the floor of the basement of his home was cemented over. In 1976, investigators received leads that Roberts body was buried in the basement so they dig it up but found only some animal bones and a pair of eye glasses.

Roberts case remains unsolved but investigators are actively seeking his whereabouts. His mother and stepfather both moved to Kittery after his disappearance. Foul play is suspected.
