Details of Disappearance

Roush was last seen at a party in Coalton, Ohio on July 6, 2020. He called his father at 6:00 a.m. to say his car was stuck. His father lived over an hour away, so Roush said he would call someone else to assist him. He has never been heard from again.

After his disappearance, his 2014 Chrysler was found abandoned on Mount Carmel Road in Gallia County, Ohio, near the city of Gallipolis. His wallet was inside the car, but there was no cash. A pendant containing his deceased mother's ashes, which Roush wore on a neck chain and never took off, was found on the ground outside the car, without the chain. One of Roush's slippers was sitting near the pendant. His cellular phone was missing, but it has apparently been turned off since his disappearance.

Roush lived in Waverly, Ohio at the time of his disappearance, having recently moved there from Somerset, Ohio. Investigators believe his case may have a connection to another missing Waverly man, Raymont Willis, who was also last seen in early July. Police have the same person of interest in both disappearances, and wanted to interview him, but before they could do so the man died of a drug overdose.

Both Willis and Roush's disappearances remain unsolved.
