Circumstances of Disappearance
Coppola was last seen near Stillwater Avenue by an aquaintance on September 16, 1998. Coppola, a former carpenters union official, had pleaded guilty to fraud charges in a $1.2 million rip-off of a men's clothing group that ran trade shows in Las Vegas. He was set to receive a 24 to 30-month sentence in November 1998.
His family members filed a missing persons report shortly after Coppola disappeared on September 16.

FBI agents searching for Coppola found his car parked near an associate’s business at Stillwell Avenue and Pelham Parkway in The Bronx. But the car turned up no clues or evidence of foul play.

Foul play is suspected.
