Missing Pa. officer may be in the area

HARRISBURG, Pa. - A Pennsylvania police officer who has been missing since Nov. 19 may be in the Chambersburg, Pa., area, officials said Friday.

Lower Paxton Township Police don't know whether Patrolman Norman Kegerreis, 51, met with foul play or is dealing with a personal crisis. Either way, they believe he may be in danger.

They are asking the public to help them find him.

Kegerreis has not been seen since Nov. 19 and did not show up for work as scheduled on Nov. 24, said Sue Katz, administrative assistant at the department east of Harrisburg, Pa.


Kegerreis has a sister in the Shippensburg, Pa., area, but his coworkers have reason to believe he may have been in Chambersburg recently, Katz said.

Kegerreis is described as a white man with thinning, brown hair. He is about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs about 180 pounds.

He is a Vietnam-era Marine Corps veteran.

He drives a gray 1987 Chevrolet Nova with a black primer front fender and Pennsylvania tags BFZ-8141.

Anyone with information can contact Lower Paxton Township police at 1-717-657-5656.
