FL - George Contos, 58, Bunnell, 7 May 2015
Flagler Sheriff’s detectives are seeking the public’s help in locating George Contos, a 58-year-old Bunnell resident who went missing on May 7. Initially, the sheriff’s office considered the disappearance non-suspicious. That changed Wednesday night. Contos’s disappearance, and the recovery of his vehicle, as well as the length of time since he had contact with his family, have combined to turn the case into a potentially criminal investigation."When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

Earlier this month:
George James Contos for 10 years had lived in his 1,200 square foot mobile home on Apricot Avenue in Daytona North, also known as the Mondex. Detectives say many people knew him, at swap meets especially. He loved his motorcycles. He was reconnecting with his family and was planning on moving back north to Connecticut. That never happened...
The occasion was the unveiling of a billboard on State Road A1A, north of Beverly Beach, offering a $10,000 reward—double the original amount—and asking for help in locating the whereabouts of Contos...
Asked if it were still possible that Contos would be returned to his family alive., Sepe said: “There’s been a period of time that’s passed. I like to stay optimistic on the cases. We believe that there’s a possibility that George may never be brought home to his family. But we’d like to think that maybe there is a small possibility that he would. We can’t make that determination. There is no body that’s been found"...

It's been a year since the family of a Flagler County man has heard from George Contos. People who lived nearby him are still holding out hope.

Several attempts have been made over the year to locate Contos, including erecting a billboard announcing a reward for information on his disappearance as well as the Flagler County Sheriff's Office going on "Good Day Orlando" to discuss the case.
