Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Roger Burton Sasko, now 58, was last seen at his home in Gatliff on Nov. 6, 2003, he wasn’t reported missing for another three months, Sasko is listed in the NCIC database as an open missing persons case with all statistics and descriptions, he said. His financial records and other personal data have been monitored as well. After Sasko was reported missing during the first week of November 2003, members of his family received some letters or postcards reportedly from Sasko shortly after he disappeared, but the authenticity of those correspondents hasn't been determined. The letters reported that Sasko was traveling, and bore a Lexington postmark. Police said Sasko lived near Ky. 904 in the Gatliff area, and that it was considered unusual for him to stay out of touch with his family for this long.
In March 2007, law enforcement agencies and search groups spent two days in the Gatliff/Verne area looking for his remains. During that time, police used an excavator to dig up a spot on property that Sasko and his wife owned but turned up nothing. The spot was dug up after nine out of 10 dogs trained in the detection of human remains indicated the possible presence of human remains there.
