Unsolved Mysteries Wiki

Gerry and Terry Robinson at seven months

Real Names: Gerry Robinson and Terry Robinson
Case: Lost Siblings
Location: New York
Date: September 20, 1950


Details: On January 23, 1950, twin boys Gerry and Terry Robinson were born in Upstate New York. Terry was sick with serious ear infections and needed surgery. They were the youngest of six in a well-loved family, but Terry had health problems, their father was out of work, and they struggled to make ends meet. On September 20, 1950, they were given up for adoption when they were just eight months old. A local minister promised to keep them together. He also promised that when they were eighteen, they would be told about their biological family.
Nine years later, their father died, and now their biological siblings, Gail and Alan Robinson, want to find them and let them know that they may be genetically predisposed to colon cancer. When their mother tried to search for them, she found several leads that pointed to Texas, but none panned out. The best lead that Gail and Alan have found was that they lived in Fort Plain, New York for an amount of time, and may have graduated from the high school. However, they still have not been found. Today, they would be sixty-three years old, may have gray hair due to a hereditary trait, and may suffer from colon cancer.
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the June 4, 1999 episode.
Results: Solved. Sadly, their mother passed away without ever finding her sons. Their siblings are still searching for them. Recently, they learned that their brothers may have lived in Fort Plain, New York. According to the family's website, the twins were located in 2019.
