Details of Disappearance

Diaz was last seen in Miami, Florida on January 13, 1998. He and a friend, John Perez, went off on a fishing trip to the Bahamas. The pair were traveling in a blue and white 25-foot 1986 Offshore open fishing boat; a photo of a similar boat is posted with this case summary. Two other friends accompanied them in a separate boat.

There were rough seas that day, and Perez and Diaz's friends in the separate boat lost sight of them and their vessel. Diaz and Perez have ever been heard from again. Few details are available in their cases.
