Details of Disappearance
Geoffrey Apke was last seen at the Strasse Haus at 630 Main Street in Covington, KY. The 1974 silver Chrysler Newport that Apke had been driving was found at 3:20 a.m., crashed in Boone County on the Interstate 275 bridge to Indiana. When the police arrived, his vehicle was located with the keys inside, but Geoff's whereabouts remain unknown.
A passer-by told police the driver left in a Jeep Cherokee. Police hope to talk with the Jeep's driver and anyone who saw the accident or might have information that could help locate Apke.
On the night that Geoff disappeared, he had dinner with his parents and left about 7 p.m. to shoot pool with friends. He planned to be home by 10. He had just started a job installing garage doors and was to work the next day. He called at 10, then again at 11, saying he was going to be later. The second call was the last time Mrs. Apke heard her son's voice. The next day, Saturday, the garage door company called to ask why he hadn't shown up for work. Geoff never picked up his last paycheck.
