Tracy Marie Kroh was last seen at the Alex Acres Trailer Park off Pennsylvania Route 147 in Halifax, Dauphin County at 10:00 p.m. on August 5, 1989. She was trying to visit her sister and brother-in-law who resided at the park, but they were not at home. She dropped off a barbecue grill and some grocery store coupons on their front steps.
Tracy never arrived back at her family's house in Millersburg, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania and has not been seen again. The trailer park is approximately seven miles west of her own home. She was not reported missing until the next day because her parents thought she had spent the night at her sister's home, as she often did. They called police after finding out Tracy was not at her sister's house.
Tracy's blue-striped white 1971 Mercury Comet was located at the town square in Millersburg the following evening, August 6, 1989. Her belongings were not inside the vehicle and there was no trace of Tracy.
Parts of her wallet, including her driver's license and National Honor Society card, were found in December 1993, over four years after Tracy initially vanished. The wallet located in an area along Wiconisco Creek, off Rakers Mill Road in Washington Township, nine miles from Millersburg.
Tracy was born on 04/16/1972 and was 17 years old when she was last seen. She was 5'0" and 90 lbs.
Tracy does not have a history of running away from home. She left $300 behind in her bedroom and $400 in her bank account. She is described as a shy, studious teenager with no enemies; she was about to start her senior year at Halifax High School, and was a member of the National Honor Society.
