Curtis Lawrence Goodman
Missing since July 15, 1989 from Gainesville, Alachua County, Florida
Circumstances of Disappearance
In July 1989, Goodman was preparing to travel to Miami for abdominal surgery, because of a severe intestinal condition that caused him constant pain. He never arrived at his parents' Miami home as planned.
Police found his packed car still parked at his home on NW 4th Avenue, and the lights and air conditioning were left on inside. The keys to the car were found on a desk inside his apartment. He was last seen by neighbors on July 15, 1989.
Prescribed medicine Goodman took every day, was left at his home. His clothes, golf clubs and bicycle were packed into his car. He withdrew over 500 dollars the day before he disappeared.
Goodman is a University of Florida graduate and worked as a stockbroker, but had been unable to work because of his medical condition. He spent many days walking around his neighborhood, as walking relieved his pain.
