  • Details of Disappearance
    Tony Ray Choate was last seen in Bonnieville, KY on September 14, 1993 riding a pink four-wheeler.

    Kentucky State Police originally considered the case involving Choate a missing person investigation because Choate was known to leave town for stretches of time, traveling to Florida and California until his money ran out. He worked in the tobacco fields and worked on cars.

    But his grandparents who raised him, who are now both deceased, realized that something was different this time. So three days later, they reported him missing. Choate, 25, never returned.

    Years after his disappearance, police gathered information that led them to believe Choate had been the victim of a homicide.

    Choate is believed to have been in the process of committing a crime at the time of his disappearance.

    Police have dug up concrete, searched neighboring caves and conducted numerous ground searches looking for Choate’s remains. His body has never been found.
