Circumstances of Disappearance
Sellers, a student at an alternative school in Kenton County, was first reported missing on August 17, 1980. The night before he had been to the Kenton County Fair in Independence.
At the fair he got into a fight, and police picked him up for disorderly conduct and public intoxication. But instead of taking him all the way home, police dropped the boy off about a mile from his home as a favor. He was last seen walking through the L&N Railroad underpass.
Sellers never arrived at his house; he has not been heard from since that day.
