On September 6, 1999, 80 year old Garfield James Meekins was last seen leaving his home in the 800 block of Cooks Lane in Baltimore, MD in his gold 1993 Honda Accord to go to a nearby grocery store.

The next day, September 7, 1999, Garfield’s car was discovered abandoned in the front yard of a farmer’s home off of Fort Davis Road in Warren Township, PA.
