Details of Disappearance

Svabik was last seen on January 9, 2019. He was staying at a sober living facility in Niles, Ohio, but after he relapsed on drugs, they asked him to leave.

He tried to check into a Motel 6 on Belmont Avenue in Liberty Township, Ohio at 8:30 p.m. that day, but he was acting paranoid and due to his demeanor, the motel staff refused to rent him a room and asked him to leave. He has never been heard from again. The next day, his belongings were found across the street from the motel.

According to his loved ones, in spite of Svabik's addiction he did keep in touch with his family and would ask his parents when he needed help. Because they haven't heard from him, his family is concerned for his safety. His case remains unsolved.
