In February of 1982 Ross and his brother went to a house in the El Dorado area to collect some money. The two drove separately, and upon arriving Ross told his younger brother to leave and they would meet up later. They never did. Days went by with no word from Ross.
The car Ross had driven to the house in Butler County, was found parked in front of what at the time was a Wichita nightclub, at the corner of Lincoln and Governor. Ross' mother and brothers went to his apartment on East Harry. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary except there was no sign of Ross.
The KBI and the Butler County Sheriff investigated but say there wasn't enough evidence to make an arrest. Ross is described as a good man who got mixed up with dangerous people. (Information retrieved from NamUs.gov)
