Details of Disappearance

Koziatek was last seen in the vicinity of the 400 block of Dixmyth Avenue in Cincinnati, Ohio on July 29, 1979. He was a student at the University of Cincinnati and was boarding with several other students at the time; they reported him missing on August 8. He has never been heard from again.

An old friend described Koziatek as an intelligent individual with an interest in chemistry and biochemistry. According to this friend, he wasn't having any problems in his life or any trouble with his family when he disappeared in 1979. He was, however, depressed about his poor academic performance at the university.
