Missing since August 12, 1998 from St. Cloud, Aitkin County, Minnesota
Classification: Lost, Injured, Missing
Circumstances of Disappearance
Forcum was last seen in St. Cloud, Minnesota on August 12, 1998.
Roseanna was last known to be with April Nicole Geyer.
Her father last saw Rose on August 12 or 13, 1998, in their St. Cloud apartment. He had asked her to do the dishes. She refused and left the apartment with April.
April and Roseanna were known to take off, sometimes for days, without warning. Both from the St. Cloud area, Rose and April would phone their parents during those trips just to let them know they were safe. Eventually each would return home. But in August 1998 they left and didn't come back.
The young women's parents started to get really concerned in the last weeks of August 1998, and reported them missing.
Rose attended classes at her junior high irregularly and eventually was transferred to an alternative learning center. Rose's mother had moved to Texas in 1997.
Rose had brushes with the law and had been sent to a camp for youths with behavioral problems.
Investigators have searched and excavated an area near Wadena - 150 miles northwest of the Twin Cities. No clues have bee found. Foul play is suspected.
