The disappearance of Brian Shaffer. Columbus, Ohio. March 31,
Brian, an Ohio State student, went out with his 2 friends on the night of March 31, 2006 to celebrate the beginning of spring break. Brian was seen on camera entering the bar along with his 2 friends at 1:15 a.m.
They went to a small bar, which had only two entrances and
both had cameras. He was seen outside of the bar around 1:55 a.m., talking briefly with two young women and saying goodbye, then moving off-camera in the direction of the bar, apparently to re-enter.
While the three were there, Brian separated from his companions, he walked away out of sight and was never seen again.
His friends called after him and waited outside when the bar closed at 2:00 a.m. but he was not among the departing crowd. The cameras never caught him exiting the bar.
Brian was never seen again.
