Robert Thomas Pillsen-Rahier, known as Robb or Bobby, ran away from Cheyenne Mesa, a treatment facility in Colorado Springs, now closed, for adolescents with emotional or mental problems. He was last seen about 8:45 A.M. in the vicinity of the 13500 block of South 8th Street.
On that day, he phoned his mother from the facility saying he couldn't tell his mother exactly what was wrong because the call was being monitored. She immediately called the center to visit him but was told the boy was on a planned outing. Later that day, a Cheyenne Mesa official called to say Robert had run away.
Robert ended up in the home after suffering behavioral and emotional problems stemming from finding his stepfather's body as a 7-year old boy. Robert's stepfather had shot himself.
Robert had never run away before and was diligent about staying in touch.
