Details of Disappearance

Harry was last seen in Endicott, New York sometime in September 2014. He reportedly had contact with family members in October or November of that year. He has never been heard from again.

Harry's son, Shawn Kostick, was charged with second-degree murder, first-degree manslaughter, intimidating a witness, second-degree forgery and first-degree criminal contempt in his father's disappearance in March 2018. A photo of Shawn is posted with this case summary.

Investigators believe he caused Harry's death at his home Lincoln Avenue in Endicott sometime between September 1 and October 3, 2014. He allegedly wrote a total of $2,983 in fraudulent checks on Harry's account after his death, and threatened to harm to witnesses in the case.
