It has been almost twenty years to the date since a Colorado Springs teen disappeared, but with the help of age-progression technology, his mother is hoping you can help find him.

Robert "Bobby" Pillsen-Rahier disappeared on July 6th, 1990 from a Colorado Springs treatment facility. His mother, Jean Rahier-Langness, says she remembers it, "like it was yesterday, you never get over it, you're always looking, you're always looking at people's faces," and is hoping you'll help her find him.

Bobby Pillsen-Rahier was 15-years-old when he disappeared, and though his mother says he wasn't thrilled about staying at the treatment facility, she said it was neccesary, and he would never run away. She says Bobby was a witness to his father's suicide at a young age, and needed treatment for emotional issues.

He wasn't at the facility more than a couple of weeks before they called her, telling him Bobby had run away. But soon after that, the details, became muddled. "I have a lot of questions."

Jean Rahier-Langness says the initial report of his disappearance described him wearing a blue plaid shirt and black jeans, but weeks later, those clothes, along with Bobby's other belongings, were mailed home to her. She says she got both pairs of Bobby's shoes returned, and was confused as to how she could have possession of the clothes he'd been wearing when he disappeared. "I'd like some answers,” said Rahier-Langness.

The mother hopes everyone will take a look at not only Bobby's new age-progressed picture, but all pictures of missing children. She asks everyone to "take it into their heart and look, because families are suffering.”
