    Pfc. Ivan Roberts went missing during the Korean War, but the search for his body is ongoing.

    The only thing Annette Sello remembers about Pfc. Ivan Roberts is when he went missing.

    Sello was 6 when Roberts went missing in action during the Korean War. Her father, Hubert Roberts Sr., helped raise Ivan with the boy’s aunt, Lessie Mae Utley Roberts.

    “When he would return home from trips to town my mother would ask him, ‘Is there any word from (Ivan)?’ and he would of course say no,” Sello said. “That’s the sad part that I remember. I will just always remember that.”

    A memorial service honoring Roberts will be held June 4 at the Burke County Veterans Memorial near the courthouse. Sixty-six years after his disappearance, his name is the 72nd to be engraved in the monument marking veterans who have died, but the only one accompanied by a bronze marker that indicates he is missing in action. At the service, people will lay roses at the foot of the monument, and Fort Gordon will send an honor guard.
