April Geyer was last seen with Roseanna Forcum in St. Cloud, Minnesota on August 12, 1998. April was possibly hitchhiking back to her home in Milaca. April called home the first week of August to say that she was in St. Cloud with friends and intended to come home to visit her son. April never showed up.
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.
April was a high school dropout. She was in and out of school and in and out of trouble for underage drinking and truancy. She moved around a lot, taking apartments in St. Cloud and, briefly, in St. Paul during the summer of 1998.
She is described as being friendly with everyone, and compassionate. She made conversation easily and had a mischievous grin. But she also got mixed up with a rough crowd, drugs and alcohol. At age 14, she gave birth to a son.
Investigators have searched and excavated an area near Wadena, 150 miles northwest of the Twin Cities. No clues have been found. Foul play is suspected.
