Details of Disappearance

Reil was last seen in Brunswick, Maine on January 12, 2012. He had spent the night with his father and was talking about government conspiracies. At 6:00 a.m., he woke up and his father asked him to take his medication and call his doctor, and he agreed to do so.

Reil then left to go take a walk, never returned and has never been heard from again. He left behind his cellular phone, eyeglasses, keys, jacket and gloves, but he may have taken his wallet. He has never been heard from again.

His debit card was used at a local Rite-Aid drugstore on January 18, so he may still be in the area. He has been known to hitchhike and had dropped out of sight for a day or two at a time before, but never for this long. He lived in an apartment on Federal Street at the time of his disappearance.

Reil may be living in homeless shelters or on the streets. He is an artist and a poet. His case remains unsolved.
