Family Says Man Disappeared From 30th Street Station

Where is Jacob Rogers? He vanished without a trace on Thanksgiving.


It has been months since the family of Tacony resident Jacob Rogers has heard from him, and the Philadelphia Police Department is asking for help in locating the 37-year-old man.

According to police, Rogers’ family last spoke with him on Thanksgiving, when he said he was at 30th Street Station picking up a ticket to travel to Charleston, West Virginia, but when the train showed up, Rogers was nowhere to be found.

Police say that there is no indication that Rogers made it to the ticket counter or that he was actually on the train, and he hasn’t touched his bank account since November 25th, the day before he was reportedly at 30th Street. His phone is not in service.

Rogers is described as police as follows: “37 years-of-age, 6’1”, 185lbs., blonde hair, blue eyes, pierced right eyebrow, pierced left ear, small beard with ‘soul patch’.”

Earlier reports indicated that Rogers was last seen wearing a burgundy hooded sweatshirt with “Jenkintown” written on it, and Rogers was formerly an employee of the Jekintown Window Cleaning service, but now police say that they aren’t sure what he was wearing when he disappeared.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 215-686-3243.
