A Handsome Guy Walks Into A Bar 15 Years Ago, Never To Be Seen Again: Where Is Brian Shaffer?

“At 9:56 pm, Brian called his girlfriend and told her he loved her and that he would see her when she came back to Columbus; the two had planned on taking a vacation to Miami and were scheduled to leave for Florida on Monday, April 3rd,” a website created to help find Brian explains.

“Shortly after talking to her, Brian and his friend walked down to the Arena District in Columbus, OH; they stopped at the North Short Tavern and then went to Brother’s, where they met with other friends. One of the friends drove them back to the Ugly Tuna Saloona, where they are seen in the surveillance tape at 1:15 am.”

“The next time Brian is seen on cameras, he was outside of the Ugly Tuna, at the top of the escalator, talking with two girls; he appears to say ‘bye’ and turns towards the bar, he then disappears from the camera’s view and has not been seen since.”

Here’s where this gets downright weird; the bar’s security cameras never witnessed Brian leaving in those early morning hours of April 1st.

The thing is, Brian really couldn’t have left the bar at all without being picked up on camera. The only other way Brian could have left the bar at all was through a back service door that wasn’t open to the public.

When Brian went missing, this back exit overlooked a construction area that wasn’t a path he could have easily taken to leave the vicinity, and given that he had a few drinks that evening, it would make it even more impossible for Brian to have gone that way under the influence of alcohol.

Now, there were other businesses located next to the bar that had security cameras, and though authorities looked through all of that footage, there still was no sign of Brian.

He seemingly vanished into thin air, and he has not been seen since then.

In the aftermath of Brian’s disappearance, authorities also questioned the girls he was seen chatting with on the security cameras, but they didn’t have anything to say to get closer to where Brian went. Additionally, that construction area behind the Ugly Tuna Saloona was extensively searched, but nothing pointing to Brian was discovered.
