Michigan police seek clues on boy’s 1979 disappearance

Addison — Michigan authorities are seeking fresh information about the case of a 15-year-old boy who disappeared more than three decades ago after being suspended from high school.

State police Detective Sgt. Larry Rothman recently reopened the case of Andrew Jackson “Drew” Greer Jr., who was reported missing Feb. 12, 1979.

The Daily Telegram of Adrian reports Rothman discovered information about Greer that hadn’t previously been put into any database of missing persons. That addition was made in December and Rothman says investigators have “better tools in our box now.”

Greer’s case was revisited by authorities in Lenawee County in 2000. Detective Bob Wolverton examined the original state police report and interviewed family members, Greer’s friends and Addison school staff. No additional evidence surfaced at the time.
