    Details of Disappearance

    Solier was last seen at the RaceTrac gas station and convenience store in the 3100 block of College Avenue in Ruskin, Florida at 10:00 p.m. on June 24, 2008. He has never been heard from again. The next day, his white 2008 Ford F-150 pickup truck with the Florida license plate number 988JNF was found abandoned and burned in the 14300 block of Seminole Trail in Wimauma, Florida. Solier's mother was in Puerto Rico at the time of his disappearance and she reported him missing after she returned to Florida, on July 4.

    Solier was on probation at the time of his disappearance; he pleaded guilty to criminal mischief in May 2007 and got deferred adjudication. He is listed as an absconder as well as being a missing person. His mother doesn't believe he is running from the law, however; she stated the birth of his daughter a year before his disappearance had made him more mature and responsible. He worked as a laborer at the time of his disappearance and lived in the 600 block of Ocean Mist Court. He hoped to become a massage therapist. His case remains unsolved.
