Circumstances of Disappearance
George Dudding, was visiting Ormond Beach from New York and left with only the clothes on his back for a walk on the beach on an August night in 1999.

He never returned to his friend's home -- never washed ashore -- and has never been found. He left behind his keys, wallet, money, and ID.

Dudding was officially declared dead January 16, 2007.

Dudding was a nationally known sculptor and left behind a wife and daughter. The police had varying theories, including a belief that Dudding was alive. But his wife believes he went swimming and drowned.

Dudding had been depressed at the time.
His wife has written a book about his disappearance; Waiting to Surface.
