    Details of Disappearance

    Cooper was last seen in the 3600 block of 55th Avenue in Bladensburg, Maryland, on August 19, 2001. He was getting into a white four-door 1992 Chevrolet Caprice with an acquaintance. He called his grandmother to say he was going to go visit her at her home in Virginia. Cooper never arrived and has never been heard from again. The circumstances of his disappearance are unclear and authorities aren't sure whether foul play was involved.

    Cooper grew up in Washington D.C. as the oldest of five siblings, and attended Anacostia High School. He had a job in a warehouse at the time of his disappearance. His father was murdered when he was a child and his mother stated he was very protective of her. His case remains unsolved.

    Some agencies state that Cooper vanished from Fort Washington, Maryland.
