    Details of Disappearance

    Floyd attended a concert for the band T-Pain at Central Michigan University in Mount Pleasant, Michigan on October 12, 2007. He went to a party East Remus Road at the Isabella Indian Reservation afterwards. He had a confrontation with some other guests at the party and was thrown out, but later returned. He was last seen at 4:00 a.m., standing near his car. He never returned to his Suttons Bay, Michigan home and has never been heard from again. Floyd's black four-door 1995 Cadillac DeVille disappeared with him. The vehicle has a bungee cord holding the damaged trunk shut and a blue Michigan license plate numbered AAN 4697, which expired in May 2008. A photograph of the car is posted below this case summary.

    It's uncharacteristic of Floyd to leave without warning or to be out of touch with his family. He was a student at Northwestern Michigan College at the time he went missing. Floyd is one of seven children. His mother was murdered by her husband in 2002 and Floyd was injured in the attack while trying to defend her. He moved in with his grandmother after his mother's death and was still living there when he went missing. At the time of his disappearance, Floyd had warrants out for his arrest in Grand Rapids, Michigan, after he failed to appear in court for sentencing.

    In December 2008, Floyd's disappearance was declared a probable homicide. Authorities have one suspect in his case, but they believe multiple people may have been involved in his presumed murder. It remains unsolved.
