LANSING – It was 1990 when Kellie Greene of Kalamazoo received the call that her then 20-year-old cousin, Richard Hitchcock, had gone missing. Hitchcock was last seen at the Riverfront Lounge in Allegan the night he disappeared. “I remember the day I found out. My mother called me and said, ‘Rich is missing, you need to come down to the Riverfront, we’re going to be doing searches,’” Greene said. “We were looking for him as if we thought he was deceased already, and it was horrifying to think we might find him – but at the same time that is what we wanted.”
Hitchcock was one of countless of Michigan residents who are reported missing every year.
