RS fan Aubree Rogers

Thursday night my brother Kyle Rogers went to the Apollo Theater in Belvidere for a concert. After the show ended he was last seen by friends walking towards Buchanan’s bar. His last snapchat photo was captioned at Buchanan’s but after comparing the photo to what we’ve seen it looks like he was actually at Niko’s bar. He never came home.

At this point his phone is dead and no one has seen or heard from him.

We’re posting this in the hope of gaining any information anyone might have.

He lives down W Lincoln Ave off N State street within walking distance of the Apollo.
