Classification: Endangered Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Sullivan and his girlfriend, Camden Sylvia were last seen jogging during the evening hours of November 7, 1997 in the New York City borough of Manhattan.
Sylvia and Sullivan were in the vicinity of Pearl Street and Hanover Square at the time of their disappearances. Neither of them have been heard from again.
The couple had been having problems with their landlord, who owned their apartment building at 76 Pearl Street in Manhattan. Authorities believe that the landlord was having financial problems and wanted to increase the rent for all of his tenants in his property in late 1997. He apparently threatened to turn off the heat if the renters did not agree to an increase. Sylvia presented the landlord with a petition signed by tenants at 76 Pearl Street on the day of their disappearances. The petition stated that the tenants would withhold their payments if the landlord followed through with his threat.
Extensive searches failed to produce any evidence of the couple's whereabouts.
The landlord was a co-defendant with David King in a $13 million civil suit charging that they had conspired to loot software, business records and customers from a fire alarm company. King disappeared during the lawsuit in 1991.
