    Details of Disappearance
    Rodden was last seen in Holiday, Florida on August 27, 2000. He and his girlfriend, nephew and three sons were scuba-diving at the Pasco Reef near Anclote Key when Rodden failed to surface. He has never been heard from again and an extensive search of the water turned up no sign of him.

    Although Rodden disappeared while diving, authorities don't believe he drowned. Foul play is suspected in his disappearance and it's classified as a homicide. Few details are available in Rodden's case.

    This sounds odd. He was diving with multiple people. Which one is the primary suspect and how could the others not be aware something was amiss?

    Hello, I hate to bother you, but In August 21 2000, My dad Barry Vincent Rodden Passed away in a freak diving accident, they never found the body and i wonder every day if he is still alive. Out of hope i looked you up. I really dont know what exactly to say, and i was hoping you could tell me if you are him. If you are. I dont know why you would fake your own death. But i Dont care. Every day i wish you could be here, i miss you so much. I just wish i could see you agian. I barely remember what you look like, and it kills me inside. If you are my dad, Please contact me. I love you and miss you so much. ~Sean

    I live in Holiday It is a few miles from this address on Tarpon ave. The address actually should be 536 East Tarpon Ave. There is not a 536 Tarpon Ave. Map questing it, the address is for some offices. https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/536-E-Tarpon-Ave-STE-4-Tarpon-Springs-FL-34689/2119461185_zpid/
    This is an intreguing clue

    I wondered if the 536 Tarpon Ave was the IP address where the son used the internet? Interesting that the Narcosis Scuba Center is right there.

    He misses his Dad so much, it’s heartbreaking to read his plea.
