    Details of Disappearance

    Rees was last seen in Auburndale, Florida on November 16, 1981. He lived in the 100 block of Mason Street. He and a friend, Gregory Robert Mitchell, were going to go unload a truck. They disappeared and have never been heard from again. Gregory's mother reported her son missing on December 15 and Rees's stepfather reported him missing on December 26. It's possible that Rees and Gregory traveled to north Florida after their disappearances. Few details are available in their disappearances, but foul play is suspected.
