They were last seen in May 2006 at Stoney’s Brewery in Smithton, PA being loaded onto an 18-wheeler bound for Newark, NJ. Truck driver said he had more to pick up in Latrobe, PA before heading back to NJ. 🙁
My, brother, who lives near Charleroi, PA, sent me the following via email. So I thought I’d pass it on. Make sure you link to and read the articles in the order they are shown below:
Heres’ a little background on this. Charleroi is located along the Monongahela river in southwestern Pennsylvania in an area known as the “Mon Valley.” The Mon Valley used to be a center of heavy industry such as steel and glass making, and coal mining. Since the demise of these industries in the 1960’s and 1970’s, the Mon Valley has become a depressed area in many respects. The small towns along the river that used to be quite vibrant and commercially successful have fallen on hard times.
I live in the Washington, DC area and, to the best of my knowledge, this has not gotten any coverage in our local newspapers or on TV.
