Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Crockett was seen last at Rankin's Grocery on U.S. 521 in Taylor's Grove some time after 7 p.m. August 12, 1977. People at a house nearby said he was talking with someone inside a car that was parked in the median on U.S. 521. But nobody knows where he went after that.
The Lancaster County Sheriff's Office began a search of the surrounding area that weekend. His children believe their father was killed. The family has no reason to think he would have left to start a new life.
Seven years after he disappeared, the family signed papers that officially pronounced Crockett dead. His body was never found.
