    Details of Disappearance

    Glossett was last seen in Van Wert, Ohio sometime in late June or early July 2016. His father last heard from him on his birthday, June 16, and reported him missing on July 21. He was born and raised in Van Wert and graduated from Lincolnview High School, and at the time of his disappearance he drifted between various locations where he stayed in the Van Wert, Delphos, Middle Point and Lima, Ohio areas. Because of his lifestyle, the date of his disappearance isn't certain.

    Prior to his disappearance, Glossett had mentioned wanting to go to Knoxville, Tennessee, but it's unclear whether he ever arrived there. He didn't drive at the time of his disappearance and he left his cellular phone behind. Since he went missing, Glossett hasn't picked up his mail or contacted his loved ones. His mother died in January 2017, and in her obituary he's listed as having survived her. Glossett's case remains unsolved.
