Michael Eugene Reapp Unknown location
NOTE: NCIC as MISSING ONLY
On June 16, 1978 Michael Reapp filed for divorce from Grace on grounds of desertion and intolerable severity. Investigators initially assigned to this case concluded that the unexpected disappearance of Grace and Gracie Reapp was suspicious.
In the years following the disappearance of Grace and Gracie, several State Police investigators have worked on this case. Various record checks with government agencies, including the State Department and the Social Security Administration have revealed that there is no activity listed on Grace Reapp. The consensus of opinion is that their disappearance is the result of foul play, and that Grace and Gracie Reapp are dead.
Investigation revealed that Michael Reapp had an extra-marital affair, at the time of Grace's disappearance. The extra-marital affair had been ongoing for almost a year prior to the disappearance.
On November, 1994, Det. Sgt. Gerald H. Charboneau was assigned this case for follow up investigation. On 09-23-96 Michael Reapp was interviewed by Vermont State Police Detectives at his residence in Jupiter, Florida. At that time, Michael Reapp was advised that the disappearance of his wife and daughter (Grace and Gracie Reapp) was suspicious, and that the investigation was being treated as a homicide case.
At that time, Michael Reapp had admitted to Detectives that he and Grace Reapp were having marital problems for the two years prior to her disappearance, as well as to having sexual relations with several women, including the one whom he eventually married.
Michael Reapp admitted to detectives that his relationship with Grace was physical at times, but that he figured that she (Grace) just took her daughter (Gracie) and left him and the boys. Michael Reapp advised that he had always believed that Grace was living somewhere with her family members.
On 10-21-96 State Police cadaver dog units, the F.B.I. Evidence Response Team, and a Ground Penetrating Radar Unit were searching the former Reapp residence in Vermont, from where Grace and "Gracie" were reported as missing.
On 10-22-96 a TV news reporter from Vermont called Michael Reapp in Florida and advised him of the current search process underway at his former Vermont residence.
On 10-26-96 Michael Reapp fled from his Florida residence without telling his wife or other family members of his intentions.
On 11-13-96 Brian Reapp had reported his father, Michael E. Reapp, as missing to the West Palm Beach Florida Sheriff's Department.
On 12-04-96 Michael Reapp's pick-up was found abandoned at the New Orleans (Louisiana) International Airport. This is the last confirmed location where Michael Reapp was identified as being.
Michael Reapp's current location is not known. http://www.dps.state.vt.us/vtsp/missing/reapp_grace.htm
Michael Eugene Reapp DECEASED
Decades With No Justice For Vermont Community
Cops say that for decades, Michael Reapp has gotten away with the murder of his wife, Grace, and 5-year-old daughter, Gracie. But since no bodies had been found, it was hard for authorities to get a warrant for Reapp's arrest. But now, after years of investigating, they've got one and they're on the hunt for a man who's spent years avoiding the law.
On June 7, 1978, police in Jericho, Vt., received a call from Reapp, who claimed that his wife and daughter were missing from their home. He also told them that Grace left a note, saying that she was leaving him and that he shouldn't go after her.
