Details of Disappearance
A passer-by told police the driver left in a Jeep Cherokee. Police hope to talk with the Jeep's driver and anyone who saw the accident or might have information that could help locate Apke.
On the night that Geoff disappeared, he had dinner with his parents and left about 7 p.m. to shoot pool with friends.
''He said 'I'll be home by 10,' '' his mother said. He had just started a job installing garage doors and was to work the next day. He called at 10, then again at 11, saying he was going to be later. The second call was the last time Mrs. Apke heard her son's voice. The next day, Saturday, the garage door company called to ask why he hadn't shown up for work. On Sunday night, he was drinking with friends at the Strasse Haus. At 3:20 a.m. Monday, the car was found. Geoff never picked up his last paycheck.

The 1974 silver Chrysler Newport that Apke had been driving was found at 3:20 a.m., crashed in Boone County on the Interstate 275 bridge to Indiana When the police arrived, his vehicle was located with the keys inside, but Geoff's whereabouts remain unknown.
