    Details of Disappearance

    Vidal resided in Haverstraw, New York in May 2000. He was last seen departing his residence sometime during the month. Vidal walked in an undetermined direction and has never been heard from again.

    A warrant was issued for Vidal's arrest in May 2000 due to a parole violation. Authorities learned that he may have been the target of a gang-related assassination attempt shortly afterwards. Vidal frequented the downtown Haverstraw area at the time of his disappearance. He has family members in New York City, New York; Texas; and Florida. Vidal may have been seen on 36th Street and 6th Avenue in the Times Square area of New York City sometime after he vanished, but the sighting has never been confirmed. It is not clear if Vidal chose to leave the area of his own accord due to his outstanding warrant or if other factors were involved in his disappearance. Vidal's case remains unsolved.
