WICHITA FALLS, TX (TNN) - “We feel like the answer is here in Wichita Falls.”
Debra Mann is referring to a question that’s haunted the Mann family for 22 years. What happened to their son, Gregory Keith Mann Jr. the night of May 10th, 1997?
"Everyday I get up and spend most of my day thinking about him and where he's at," said Greg Mann, Keith's father.
The night he disappeared, 20-year-old Keith was out with his friends and was last seen walking up the stairs to his apartment when they dropped him off around 11:45 pm. and that’s where the facts seem to end.
The family said he told one of his friends that he had to meet someone at 12:15 a.m. but who and if that meeting ever happened also remains a mystery.
Keith's parents said another mystery circles around a demo car he was driving that weekend that was found parked by their house.
"It's really hard and it doesn't get easier through the years," said Debra.
Keith’s father tells us they’re appreciative detectives are giving the case a fresh look. As police work to uncover new leads, the family continues to do research of their own.
Greg said they watch the news often and if there are reports of a body being found in town they go to the scene.
"My health is kind of failing me a little bit so I need to find him very quick," said Greg. "Ten more years I don't know, I need to know now."
"We've gotten a really good response, a lot of shares, a lot of new people have liked the page, so the page is growing," said Debra.
While no new leads have led to an answer they’ve dedicated their lives to find, the Mann’s are still not giving up hope.
"I do feel like one of these times we will find him. Something is going to happen one of these times I really feel that," said Greg.
If you have any information on Keith’s case you’re asked to the call Detective John Laughlin at (940) 761- 7762.
