Circumstances of Disappearance

Zeynel Altintas was last seen leaving his place of employment at 17.00 in Wheaton, Maryland on October 25, 1997. He worked as a domestic servant in a private residence at the time. He was supposed to meet a friend in the Dupont Circle area of Washington D. C. that evening, but never arrived.

On October 28, three days after his disappearance, some of Altintas's friends found his 1985 Volkswagen in the 1800 block of 18th Street in northwest Washington D. C. The vehicle was locked and had not been forced into, and there was nothing suspicious inside. Altintas has never been heard from again. This behavior is out of character for him. He was not having any personal or medical problems at the time of his disappearance.
