Officials continue search for 11-year-old Middle Township boy who disappeared almost 30 years ago

Maureen Himebaugh

Maureen Himebaugh has old photos and age-enhanced photos of her missing son Mark, hanging on her refrigerator at home. Eleven-year-old Mark Himebaugh disappeared Nov. 25, 1991, near his house in Del Haven.

Middle Township police on Monday asked anyone with information about the 1991 disappearance of a young boy to come forward.

Mark Himebaugh, 11, went missing Nov. 25, 1991, police said in a news release. He was in his Del Haven neighborhood when he was last seen walking about 4 p.m. toward the playground in the county park by a guard there. “This was the last time and the last person to see Mark alive,” police said.
