On July 1, 2011, Robbie Hoskins, 27, was last seen in the Tacky Town community of Harlan, Ky. Police believe he actually went missing in Bell County, Ky. He has a five-year-old daughter who has had to grow up not knowing where her daddy is. If you have any information about Robert, please contact the Kentucky State Police at 606-573-3131.
July 23, 1994, Roland Lucas, 29, and an unnamed friend stopped on the Letcher/Harlan line on Little Shepherd Trail to look for ginseng. His friend came home, Roland did not. Police and volunteers searched extensively in the area with no luck. If you have any information please contact the Kentucky State Police at 606-435-6069.
The last contact was a phone call from Nuevo Laredo, Mexico on December 9, 2015. Benson Spears, 42, has bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. It’s possible that he may be homeless and living somewhere around Mexico or Texas since that was his last known whereabouts. I did find this, which could be a reason why he is in Mexico. If you have any information please contact the Casey County Sheriff’s Office at 606-787-6821.
Michelle Collins, 22, disappeared on July 6, 2004. She was from Leslie County but was in London visiting some friends. She was last seen on New Salem Road, in Laurel County, Kentucky, getting into a vehicle with a man. In 2009, LE drained a Laurel County pond after a tip came in about her body possibly being within in. Dogs indicated to the possibility of human remains, but this was the only mention I could find, so I’m assuming nothing came of it. She had no medical or mental conditions that make authorities believe she was suicidal. If you know anything about Michelle’s disappearance, please call the Kentucky State Police at 606-878-6622.
