Unsolved Cases: Robert Elmer Allison Vanishes After Work in 1994

The missing man was from Waynesburg but worked on a river boat owned by Tri-River Fleeting in Pittsburgh.

Robert Elmer Allison of Waynesburg, Greene County, worked on a river boat owned by Tri-River Fleeting, which is currently listed on West Carson Street in Pittsburgh.

Allison reportedly left work on Dec. 21, 1994, and was headed for a bar in the western end of Pittsburgh. All of his belongings were found on the boat, and he has not been seen since.

Sources that list his disappearance say that he was last seen "leaving Tri-River Fleeting in Bethel Park near Pittsburgh," but it is questionable as to why a river business is listed in Bethel Park.

Allison was 42 years old at the time of his disappearance. He is described as being a white male with brown eyes, brown hair and a fair complexion. He is about 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs around 170 pounds. He wore glasses and was suffering from depression when he disappeared.

There is little more information regarding this case. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Pennsylvania State police, Waynesburg Barracks, at 724-627-6151.
