The 8-year-old boy disappeared from near his McKees Rocks home in 1991.
Willie Majewski was only 8 years old about 4 p.m. on Nov. 9, 1991 as he gathered his fishing gear and walked toward Chartiers Creek, which feeds into the nearby Ohio River. He wasn't reported missing for several hours after he disappeared. His mother was out playing bingo and didn't realize he hadn't come home. Willie's fishing gear was found later behind the Eat'n Park restaurant—along the banks of the creek, about 100 yards from a camp where homeless people stayed. His equipment had not been disturbed and there were no signs of a struggle at the scene. Witnesses reported seeing Majewski in the McKees Rocks Plaza. One person saw him talking to a scruffy man in a store. Another said an unkempt man pulled him into a burnt-orange Nova. The …

The mother of two from Ross Township vanished last September.
To an outsider, Monday, Sept. 26, 2011 might have seemed like an average day in Jamie Nichole Peterson's life. Her children, a 9-year-old boy and 12-year-old girl, left for school that morning from their Ross Township home in the area of North Fremont Avenue, near Bellevue Borough. Jamie, 30, went to buy groceries at the Giant Eagle at 4110 Brighton Rd., and, according to some reports, also a Home Depot, then returned home. The last person to see Peterson was an ex-boyfriend who came over early that afternoon to pick up clothing he had left behind. Jamie had broken off the five-year relationship three weeks earlier, according to her father, Jim Peterson, a former state constable from Ross Township. Witnesses said she and the ex-boyfriend …

The 21-year-old from Penn Hills has been missing since March 22.
Sometimes you repeatedly cross paths with people, not knowing their names, but still exchanging a nod or pleasantries as you pass. For Nancy Monahan, who runs the Pennsylvania Missing Persons website, Dominick Brown-Hill was one of those people. She remembers saying "hello" to him on occasion as he walked near her home in Penn Hills. And then he vanished. "Boy, it just makes you think—a stranger you might see is suddenly gone," Monahan said. Brown-Hill was last seen Thursday, March 22, on Althea Drive in Penn Hills, not far from a home where he had been staying. At about 5 or 6 p.m. the next day, he called the home's owner—a friend's grandmother—to say he would be coming back that evening. But he never showed up. His mother, Lisa Zellars, …
