Blairsville, Pennsylvania – The Pennsylvania State Police is renewing its efforts to solve the perplexing cold case of Alicia Markovich, a 15-year-old girl who went missing in 1987, Your Content has learned.

With the passage of over three decades and no substantial leads or breakthroughs, Alicia’s disappearance continues to haunt her family and the community. Authorities are once again reaching out to the public for any information that could help bring closure to this enduring mystery, according to CrimeSpace, a true crime publication.

Alicia Markovich vanished on April 26, 1987, during a visit to her father’s residence on Dunn Avenue in Blairsville. An intense argument with her father about her school grades, friends, and her mother’s request for an increase in child support took a fateful turn that evening.

Upset, Alicia abruptly left her father’s house and never returned. Her father called after her, urging her to come home by 8:00 p.m., assuming she was heading to a friend’s house. Unfortunately, Alicia never made it back, and her father reported her missing the next day, CrimeSpace reported.

Initially believed to be a runaway, investigators later shifted their focus to the possibility of foul play. Alicia’s mother vehemently denied the notion that her daughter had run away, emphasizing that Alicia had no history of such behavior and lacked the streetwise skills to survive on her own. Authorities concurred, suspecting that Alicia had likely met a tragic fate, possibly on the same day she disappeared.

Alicia Markovich was a dedicated student and an active member of the track team at Windber High School. Her disappearance left a void in the community that still resonates today.

She was last seen wearing a distinctive ensemble—a white crop top adorned with three colored stripes (red, yellow, and blue), jeans, and white sneakers. Notably, she carried a pair of purple sunglasses but left all other personal belongings behind.

Despite years of investigation, there has been no trace of activity on Alicia’s bank account or Social Security number since 1987, further deepening suspicions that she may have met with a tragic end. The case remains unresolved, leaving Alicia’s loved ones yearning for answers and closure.

Law enforcement agencies are urging anyone with information about Alicia Markovich’s disappearance to come forward. The Pennsylvania State Police Troop A – Indiana Station can be contacted at (724) 357-1976. Alternatively, individuals can provide anonymous tips through the Pennsylvania Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-4PA-TIPS (8477) or submit information online. It’s important to note that all callers to Pennsylvania Crime Stoppers will remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward if their information leads to an arrest, the resolution of a crime or cold case, or the location of a wanted person, fugitive, or missing individual.
