Details of Disappearance

Andrew was last seen in Cleveland, Ohio on December 29, 2016. He boarded a private Cessna Citation 525 plane at Burke Lakefront Airport with his brother, John Robert "Jack" Fleming, their parents, John T. Fleming and Suzanne Fleming, a family friend, Brian Casey, and Brian's daughter, Megan Casey.
