Excerpt from Rachel Cooke's Website

Rachel, an accomplished cross-country runner, left her home in the Northlake development on FM 3405 northwest of Georgetown, Texas (north of Austin) on the morning of Thursday, January 10, 2002, to go on her usual 3-4 mile morning jog around the neighborhood. Sometime around 11 AM, near the end of her run and possibly within 200 yards of home, she disappeared

Life without Rachel

When Rachel Cooke found her namesake on the net, she came across a family tragedy: another Rachel Cooke had vanished from her home in Texas three years earlier. The Observer writer went to America to meet a family left devastated by their loss, and discovered that Rachel is only one of the many thousands of young Americans who disappear each year

Original Post by Robert Cooke on CTV

January 10, 2005, will mark three years since 19-year-old Rachel Cooke disappeared while jogging in her parents' Georgetown neighborhood.

In lieu of a remembrance ceremony for Rachel, the Cooke family has decided to make a donation in Rachel's name to aid the victims of the Asian tsunami crisis. The public is invited to contribute to the donation fund. Thousands of people were killed or injured in this disaster. Countless others are missing or have lost their homes.

Another huge problem which is developing in the disaster area is the kidnapping and sexual slavery of children and women. With so many homeless adults and orphan children it is easy for the creeps who exploit them to take advantage of the situation.

More than just food, shelter, and clothing are needed. We can also help to provide security by giving generously. All of the donations will be routed to an international agency such as the Red Cross, Salvation Army, or Save the Children.

xx 3rd anniversary of Cooke disappearance
« Reply #6 on: Jan 11th, 2005, 05:15am »

Three years ago today, Rachel Cooke disappeared near her Georgetown home. She was 19 years old at the time.

Cooke was home from college visiting her family in January 2002 when she disappeared while jogging.

Last year, the Williamson County Sheriff's Office started a new task force to reinvestigate her case.

A $50,000 reward is still available for pertinent information.

Today, in lieu of a remembrance ceremony for Cooke, her family is asking donations be made to aid the victims of the tsunamis.

Her parents, Robert and Janet Cooke, also started the Rachel Alert Network to educate and support the loved ones of missing persons

xx Missing woman's family urges tsunami donations
« Reply #7 on: Jan 11th, 2005, 05:17am »

The family of Rachel Cooke, a college student who disappeared three years ago Monday while jogging around her parents' Georgetown neighborhood, are urging people to mark the anniversary of her disappearance by donating to the Asian tsunami victims.


"In lieu of a remembrance ceremony for Rachel, the Cooke family has decided to make a donation in Rachel's name to aid the victims of the Asian tsunami crisis," according to Robert Cooke, the woman's father. "The public is invited to contribute to the donation fund. Thousands of people were killed or injured in this disaster. Countless others are missing or have lost their homes. We can help by giving generously."


Rachel Cooke was last seen jogging on the morning of Jan. 10, 2002. Her purse, keys and car were found in her parents' home. Law officers say it appears that she was abducted.
Her family has staged search after search but have found nothing, despite a degree of nationwide publicity. Robert Cooke keeps a journal detailing the aftermath of her disappearance on KVUE.com.

« Reply #8 on: Mar 18th, 2005, 11:16pm »

An individual has used the photo of a missing woman on their online profile. Users of this board are asked to follow this link and complain to those responsible for hosting this. This is very painful for the family of Rachel Cooke. I am posting this link below. I find this disturbing and appalling as well. Rachel's dad made the original post bringing this to our attention earlier today on another board.

xx Cooke Family Presses Search For Rachel
« Reply #12 on: Aug 7th, 2006, 07:45am »

By Leslie Coons

Gone without a trace -- in 2002 Rachel Cooke went out for a jog in Georgetown and has not been seen again.

The disappearance of a Central Texas teenager is making national headlines once again.

Nineteen-year-old Rachel Cooke vanished near her Georgetown home in 2002.

Sunday night her case will be featured on the CBS series 'Without a Trace."

In January it will be five years since she disappeared.

For those who knew and loved Rachel Cooke, she's never far from their minds.

For nearly five years her family and friends have continued the search -- never giving up hope that they'll be able to bring Rachel Cooke back home.

She was just 19 when she disappeared after going out for a run near her Georgetown home.

Over the years, psychics from across the country have worked with the family. Nothing has ever panned out.

Still, Rachel's dad, Robert, says any attention his daughter's disappearance gets -- In central Texas or nationwide -- is helpful.

It's Cooke's belief that by keeping Rachel's image alive in peoples' minds, the lead they've been looking for will finally turn up.

"We don't have anything," he told CBS 42's Leslie Coons. "We don't have a grave to go to, or a memorial. We don't know anything. We can't give up because Rachel is still out there. We need to bring her home."

Cooke says he and his family are able to carry on day to day by looking to each other for support.

Rachel's sister is currently a student at UT. Robert Cooke says he knows he needs to be strong for her.

The episode featuring the Rachel Cooke case is on CBS 42 Sunday night at 9 pm.

Her case will also be featured on the CBS Early Show Monday morning.

xx Cooke's Parents Talk About Moore's Plea
« Reply #13 on: Nov 15th, 2006, 11:08am »

By Rebecca Taylor

(CBS 42) GEORGETOWN Two Georgetown parents are being victimized again, they told CBS 42's Rebecca Taylor -- ever since convicted killer Michael Moore was brought into court with the expectation that he would plead guilty to the murder of Rachel Cooke. Instead he plead not guilty.

Cooke disappeared while jogging near her parents' northwest Georgetown home in 2002.

Last week convicted killer Michael Moore, already in prison for murdering a Round Rock woman in her home in 2003, reneged on a plea deal after police say he confessed to killing Rachel Cooke.

Janet Cooke said she wakes up every day and talks to the daughter who isn't there anymore.

"I say good morning," she said. "And every night before I go to bed, I say good night. And it's hard for her not to be there anymore."

Rachel Cooke went missing nearly five years ago. Her parents now believe she is dead. But, they said, they need to know if convicted killer Michael Moore is to blame.

"My plea to him is, tell the truth," said her father.

But Moore has reportedly retracted a prior confession to killing the 19-year-old -- throwing prosecutors last week into a tailspin, and giving Rachel's mother and father more heartache.

"I know he has a son, and I'd like him to think what if it was his son -- that somebody was taking advantage of," Robert Cooke said.

Robert Cooke doesn't know if Michael Moore killed his daughter. If he did?

"I don't want him ever on the streets again," Rachel's father insisted. "He's doesn't belong here. He's not a human being. He needs to stay behind bars."

While he waits for answers, he embraces the memories of his little girl.

"She was a daddy's girl," he said.

But he can't stop the thoughts that come to him in the night -- just what might have happened to his little girl.

"You wake up to it," he said. "In fact, sometimes you have a nightmare and you wake up, you realize that the nightmare was not as scary as your real life."

Still, they are holding out hope that they might find answers, so that Rachel -- in some way -- might finally come home.

"It would mean everything," said her mother. "It would give me that closure that I so dearly want."

Until then, Janet Cooke will continue to talk to her daughter -- hoping she'll lead them to her killer.

"I've told her," she said. "'Let us know -- find some way. -- Let us know."

"He's trying to victimize us a second time," said Robert Cooke.

Janet Cooke said she would let a jury decide, but she said she has her suspicions.

"It would not surprise me in the least," she said, "if (Moore) just kills for the killing..."

Moore was convicted in February of killing Christina Moore in her Round Rock home. She was 14 weeks pregnant. The two are not related

xx Rachel Cooke still missing after 5 years
« Reply #14 on: Jan 10th, 2007, 06:57am »

By: Allison Toepperwein | Williamson & Bell County Bureau Chief

Five years ago Rachel Cooke was studying to be a fashion designer at college in San Diego.

"[She] never had enough time in the day to do everything she wanted to do," Rachel's father Robert Cooke said.

Robert said he and his wife were constantly worried something bad would happen while she was in California.

But, sadly, it was possibly 200 yards away from what they thought was the safest place on earth -- their home in Georgetown -- where something bad did happen. Rachel disappeared January 10, 2002 while out on a jog, and no one's seen her since.

"At the beginning it was very hectic and busy and a lot of activity with searches and investigations and things," Cooke said.

Things have slowed down.

The Cooke's launched a website tracking the community's involvement and tried keeping her story alive in the media, but despite their efforts, there was little progress in finding Rachel or learning what happened.

"For about four and half years though, it was a very frustrating investigation. Essentially, it had become a cold case," Williamson County District Attorney John Bradley said.

Then a familiar face showed himself to investigators.

"In the last six months we've had new and exciting leads that we followed up on, that began to focus on a credible suspect," Bradley said.

That credible suspect was Michael Keith Moore. A man serving three life sentences, two for the murder of Christina Moore in 2003. There was no relation between them.

"We went to a lot of work to make sure that we could corroborate his statements and prove them to be true," Bradley said

After several months, Moore went before a judge and Rachel Cooke's family. Everyone expected him to plead guilty to killing Rachel. Instead he pleaded not guilty.

"I can't understand how someone can do that to someone who's hurting, but again, you have to step back and look at who you're talking about," Cooke said.

Robert said he doesn't know if Michael Moore killed his daughter or if he's just playing mind games. District attorney Bradley said he plans on proving what Moore confessed to.

"It doesn't mean that we don't have credible evidence, it doesn't mean that we can't continue to pursue a case. But, it certainly left the family and community very frustrated. All it did for me was mean we were going to work twice as hard to try and solve that case," Bradley said.

No body has been found, and there's only speculation as to where Rachel might be.

"I would like to bring Rachel home, in some way or another. She needs to be home with her family. And I know she may not be alive, but she needs to come home," Cooke said.

Robert's felt divorce, lost a job, and other effects from Rachel's disappearance, but he rallies on for his daughter.
