Details of Disappearance

Kuehne was last seen in Hollywood, Florida on September 6, 2016. He was released from his nursing home in Venice, Florida on August 24 after his insurance stopped paying, and took a medical transportation van to the 2300 block of Lee Street in Hollywood to live with Christine Wagner, a woman he'd met online.

His family last heard from him on September 1, less than a week after he left the nursing home. Wagner said he left with two men in a white van on September 6.

Wagner has a long criminal history, including convictions for drugs and prostitution. When questioned by police, she admitted she'd placed $3,000 in charges on Kuehne's debit card, but his family doesn't believe this; they stated he was very conservative with his money and kept his pin number written down on a paper in his wallet.

Since Kuehne's disappearance, he hasn't accessed his bank account or used his Medicare card, which he would need to pay for his medications. His family believes he is probably deceased.
