Details of Disappearance

Coffey was last seen on December 31, 2012. At 5:15 p.m., he called a friend and said he was in Richmond, Virginia and was going home. He has never been heard from again.

The next day, his van was found abandoned on Hobbs Hole Drive next to the Holiday Inn Express Hotel in Tappahannock, Virginia. A photo of the van is posted with this case summary. The window was rolled down and Coffey's dog was inside the vehicle, along with some food and water and Coffey's cellular phone.

Although Coffey didn't have a permanent address at the time of his disappearance and may have been living out of his van, he frequented Gloucester County and Middlesex County and owned a sailboat moored in Deltaville, Virginia. His case remains unsolved.
