  • Details of Disappearance
    Thompson was last seen in Clearwater, Florida during the late evening hours of October 31, 2001. He departed the Pro Shop Pub in the 800 block of Cleveland Street between 10:30 PM - 12:00 AM. Thompson's mother reported him as a missing person on November 2, 2001, after he failed to return to their residence on Waverly Way or report to work.

    Thompson's 1998 Ford Ranger pickup truck was discovered abandoned in Tampa, Florida on November 5, 2001. At the time, there was no evidence of foul play.

    In May 2005, Steven Lorenzo and Scott Schweickert were implicated in the murders of two gay men. It is believed that they may have many more victims. Thompson's case is being re-examined for any possible link to Lorenzo and Schweikert.
