Details of Disappearance

Michael was last seen in Clermont, Florida sometime in September 2015. He lived with his wife, Laurie Shaver, on Sandy Pines Road with their children; most of his family lives out of state. He has never been heard from again.

Laurie never reported her husband missing. It wasn't until February 2018 that police were notified of Michael's disappearance, after a friend called the sheriff's office to request they check on his well-being. The friend said he hadn't spoken to Michael since 2015 and that this was very unusual and uncharacteristic of him.

When authorities when to the Shaver residence, Laurie told them she hadn't seen her husband since 2015, either. She permitted police to look inside their home, after only a few minutes she stopped answering questions and said she wanted to speak to an attorney.

Michael had been arrested on domestic violence charges in 2014, after he and Laurie struggled over a gun and she hit him over the head with it. He claimed his wife had been the aggressor in the incident and that she went for the gun first.

His disappearance is considered suspicious, but no suspects have been named and investigators are not sure what happened to Michael. His case remains unsolved.
