Details of Disappearance

Spelhaug was last seen in Ocala, Florida on November 18, 2003. He has never been heard from again. He is believed to have wandered away from his apartment in 7900 block of southeast Midway Drive Terrace, possibly intending to take a walk in the woods nearby as he often did.

Spelhaug has dropped out of sight for days at a time before, but has never been gone for this long. His eyeglasses and medication were left behind at his home.

In the summer of 2004, cadaver-sniffing dogs indicated the presence of a body in a lake near Spelhaug's apartment. Authorities drained and searched the lake, thinking Spelhaug was there, but uncovered no evidence. His case remains unsolved.
