Reward offered for information into 1981 disappearance of Slatington man

Lehigh Valley Crime Stoppers has offered a $2,000 reward for information into the suspicious disappearance of Ryan Jan Kemp of Slatington almost 36 years ago.

Kemp, who was renting a home in Germansville, was last seen eating lunch on Sept. 15, 1981 at the King’s IGA supermarket on Route 873 in Schnecksville, state police said. His car was found two days later in the parking lot of the former Ale Haus tavern on Route 309 in Schnecksville.

Under a petition from his mother, Kemp was declared dead in 1989. State police have always suspected foul play in his disappearance.

Kemp was 30 when he went missing, had a mustache at the time and was supposed to wear eyeglasses or contacts. Additional information on Kemp’s case can be found on the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System website at www.findthemissing.org, case number 9151.
