Details of Disappearance

Keszthelyi was last seen near his home at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in the 12000 of Wortel Road in Elberta, Alabama at 7:50 a.m. on May 16, 2018. He told his wife he was going for a walk in the woods. He walked away from his home and has never been heard from again.

An extensive search turned up no sign of Keszthelyi. He took his identification with him, but left his cellular phone. Prior to his disappearance, he had been talking about going home, and it's possible he tried to find something that reminded him of his childhood in Hungary. His case remains unsolved.
