kycoldcase02KENTUCKY (1/31/12)—The Kentucky State Police (KSP) investigate criminal activity across the entire Commonwealth of Kentucky, and, in many instances, the information provided by individual citizens allows law enforcement officials to make important breakthroughs in difficult cases.

With this in mind, members of the KSP Post 3 in Bowling Green, KY are requesting help from the public in resolving a nearly 20 year-old missing persons case that could involve foul play.

According to KSP investigators with Post 3, western Kentucky resident Anthony Choate has not heard from or seen since September 14th, 1993.

Prior to Mr. Choate’s disappearance, he was observed riding on a pink 4-wheeler (ATV) in Bonnieville, which is located in Hart County, KY.

Reports indicate that he had just left his father-in-law’s home and was heading to his child’s bus stop location.

Though little more information is publicly known at this time, investigators say that further evidence obtained in relation to this case suggest that Mr. Choate may have been murdered. However, as indicated, no remains or body have been found as of this report.

At this time, officials with the KSP are requesting help from the community or anyone who might have information regarding this case. Anyone with any additional information is encouraged to contact Lt. Shannon West or Sgt. Todd Combs via email ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
