Missing deputy cold case gets lead

JOLIET, Ill. (AP) — Authorities are digging up a Joliet basement as part of an investigation into the disappearance of a former Will County sheriff’s deputy who went missing more than a quarter century ago.

The Illinois State Police today said investigators from the agency and the FBI were unearthing part of a concrete basement slab of a residence. Authorities say the dig was launched after detectives received new leads in the investigation of the disappearance of Robin Abrams. 

Abrams was a member of the sheriff’s department in the late 1980s before she lost her job. She was 28-years-old when she was last seen driving from her parents’ home near Beecher on Oct. 4, 1990. Her vehicle was found the next day in Harvey but she was never found.
