    Christoph Zahn
    Missing since April 28, 1992 from Atlanta, Fulton County, Georgia.
    Classification: Endangered Missing

    Vital Statistics
    Date Of Birth: 1973
    Age at Time of Disappearance: 21 years old
    Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 6' 0"; 160 lbs.
    Distinguishing Characteristics: White male. Swiss citizen. Brown eyes; light brown hair.
    Marks, Scars: He has a scar on his chin.
    Other: He speaks English with a slight German accent

    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Chris Zahn is a Swiss citizen who was last heard from on April 28, 1992, while he was visiting Atlanta. On April 27, 1992, Zahn had taken an overnight bus from Jacksonville, Florida, to Atlanta and checked into a hotel across the street from the bus station.

    Zahn was last heard from at 4:15pm on April 28, 1992, when he placed a call to his travel agent in Orange County, Florida, from a telephone at the Denny’s Restaurant on Mountain Industrial Boulevard in Tucker, Georgia.

    Between April 30 and May 11, Zahn's credit card was used 31 times in the Atlanta area, including Cobb & Carroll Counties. Arrested and convicted in connection with these fraudulent credit card transactions was Harry Eugene Hale. He was arrested in Miami, Florida on warrants on forgery related charges for using Zahn's credit cards. Detectives found a camera belonging to Christoph Zahn and a quilt Zhan had purchased as a gift for his mother when they searched Hale's Kentucky home.

    At the time of Zahn's disappearance, Hale drove a 1993 red Ford Probe with Georgia tags. Police believe he has been prowling bus stations and highways from Kentucky to Miami, picking up young, transient men. They suspect he was involved in two other killings and a disappearance - but they have no evidence, beyond his possible proximity to the victims, to link him to those cases.
