    Details of Disappearance

    Grier was last seen in Canton, Ohio on July 1, 1994. A friend dropped him off at Tuscarawas Street W and saw him walking towards an apartment building in the 2200 block. He had gotten a call on his cell phone and was going to deliver an eight-ball of cocaine to a person in the building. The drugs were worth about $250 on the street, but Grier told his friend he was only expecting to be paid $100. No one saw him go inside the building, and he never met with his customer. He has never been heard from again.

    Since his disappearance, Grier hasn't collected any of his Social Security disability benefits. He wasn't working and had no hobbies at the time of his disappearance. He has previously been jailed for several offenses, although he has no felony convictions, and he had a warrant out for his arrest at the time of his disappearance. Police believe he may have simply walked away to escape the problems in his life. His case remains unsolved.
