    Details of Disappearance

    Walls was last seen in West Palm Beach, Florida on September 5, 1980. He was carrying a briefcase which is believed to have contained over $100,000 worth of diamonds and other precious stones. He was driving a red or maroon 1980 Mercury Cougar with the Florida license plate number ZCW 980. Walls had rented the vehicle from a Hertz car rental company. His car was found abandoned on the Florida turnpike the same day he was last seen. There was no sign of foul play at the scene.

    Walls was a diamond merchant in 1980. Investigators described him as a good businessman who owned properties in Canada and South America as well as businesses in Gainesville, Florida. It's possible he was robbed and this caused his disappearance. Walls's case remains unsolved.
