Details of Disappearance

Holloway was last seen at the Sunland Center, a facility for mentally disabled individuals in Gainesville, Florida on February 9, 1984. He never returned to his cottage after going to his job, and has never been heard from again. Few details are available in his case.

Holloway isn't the only person to have disappeared from the Sunland Center; Franklin Woodrow Weekley, an eighteen-year-old mentally disabled man, vanished from there in 2002. Two years later, his skeletal remains were found in the basement of the boiler room on the campus. The cause of death was never determined, but the state of Florida subsequently settled a wrongful death lawsuit with Weekley's parents.
