WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — Loved ones of a missing Wichita Falls man are still seeking answers on the 23rd anniversary of his disappearance.
Mother’s Day is a very emotional day for the Mann family. Keith Mann was only 20 years old when he went missing. And years later, the Mann family is still seeking answers to what led to his disappearance.
After 23 years of interviews, investigations and polygraph tests, the Manns are no closer to finding the cause of Keith’s disappearance. And the days leading up to mother’s day are painful reminders of a family with a missing member.
“It’s like having PTSD or something,” Keith Mann’s stepmother Debra Mann said. “It just brings up all the memories, everything that went on during that week. It’s kind of more of a sad time for us.”
Mother’s day is usually a joyous time for families. But for the Manns, this holiday is tough to celebrate.
“This day would’ve been Saturday in 1997,” Keith’s father Greg said. “So this would be the day he’d be working all day and then getting off at 9 o’clock at night. I wished I had something to where I could see where he got off work and just see the events that took place. What stopped him? Did something?”
Keith was a car salesman at Ron Roberts Ford and was last seen by his friends after they dropped him off at his Fountaingate apartment. And though Mother’s Day weighs the most heavily on the Manns, Keith is in their thoughts every day.
“We’ve talked about it over and over and over for 23 years,” Debra said.
Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for any substantial information, but the Manns just want to know what happened to their son.
“I had that bus station for many years and put up missing flyers in that bus station of people all the time. I never thought I’d be putting my son up there and him come up missing like that. I just tell ya you just never know what’s gonna happen to your kids or anybody anytime,” Greg said.
If anyone has any information on the whereabouts of Keith Mann, Wichita Falls police officers urge citizens to call Crime Stoppers at 940-322-9888.
