Details of Disappearance

Koss was last seen in the evening hours of March 13, 1995, leaving the vicinity of the 400 block of Van Buren Street in Fort Myers, Florida. He has never been heard from again.

On March 25, his red 1991 Geo Metro sedan was located abandoned in the Meadows subdivision on Longmeadow Boulevard in Sarasota, Florida, near his mother's home. There was no sign of Koss at the scene, but his wallet was inside the car.

After graduating from Pine View High School, Koss studied music and mechanical engineering at the University of Florida and played the violin in the Gainesville Chamber Orchestra. He had a nervous breakdown and moved into a Fort Myers group home, the now-defunct Mental Health Halfway House, where he was still living when he disappeared.

There were a few reported sightings of Koss in the local area in 1995 and 1996, but these were never confirmed, and the circumstances of his disappearance are unclear. His case remains unsolved.
