Details of Disappearance

Klecha was last seen during a bank transaction at MidFlorida Credit Union in Auburndale, Florida on December 27, 2017. He was in the process of moving out of a residence in the 1300 block of Long Street in Lakeland, Florida, which he shared with three roommates. He has never been heard from again.

After Klecha's disappearance, his roommates divided his belongings among themselves. One of them, Ramon Antonio "AJ" Perez Seda, was found in possession of Klecha's cellular phone, passport and debit card. Perez Seda also traded Klecha's gray 2014 Jeep Patriot for drugs. Eventually it was located at Crosstown and Morgan Street in Tampa, Florida after being in a traffic accident, and was repossessed.

At the time of his disappearance, Klecha worked as a bus driver for Disney, and frequented LGBT nightclubs in Hillsborough County and Pinellas County. Investigators do not believe he left of his own accord and think he may have been the victim of domestic abuse or a drug-related crime. His case remains unsolved.
