Details of Disappearance

Weisz was last seen in Auburn, Washington on November 18, 1997. The day before his disappearance, he checked himself into West Seattle Mental Health Hospital.

The next day, however, he refused treatment and said he wanted to visit his mother in Beaverton, Oregon. His mental health counselor dropped him off at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport at 5:00 p.m.

Weisz was also seen running down Highway 509 in Burien, Washington, without a coat or shoes on, but it's unclear whether this happened before or after he was dropped off at the airport. Weisz has never been heard from again. He had a Bible with him at the time of his disappearance. Few details are available in his case.
