Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Bovit was last seen on his dairy farm, Last Resort Farm, in Walden, Vermont. Two acquaintances saw him watching television in his house at approximately 9:00 p.m. on May 6, 1986. It is not believed that he was carrying any identification or jewelry with him at the time. Bovit has never been heard from again. He was missed when he did not show up for an 8:00 a.m. appointment the next day; he was supposed to talk to a real estate Age at the time of disappearance: nt about purchashing a condominium in Stowe, Vermont. His disappearance was reported to police on May 11, five days after he was last seen.
The day after Bovit vanished, his light blue 1974 Renault was found stuck in the mud on a dirt road approximately four miles from his residence. An acquaintance of Bovit found the car and stated it did not appear as if anyone had made a serious effort to get it free from the mud. There was no sign of Bovit anywhere near the vehicle and none of his personal belongings were inside.
Blood was found in the trunk of the car and in its passenger side. Blood was also found on Bovit's mattress; it had been turned over to hide the stains. Testing proved that the blood on the mattress and the blood in the car came from the same person.
Bovit left behind a large sum of money, as well as all of his clothing, his wallet, his credit cards, and all his other personal belongings when he vanished. He disappeared just twelve days before he was supposed to move away from his farm. He sold the farm to his ex-girlfriend, who was its original owner; she had sold it to him in 1979.
Garth Drew was convicted of murdering a man who was killed a few months before Bovit disappeared. While he was in prison, Drew told investigators Bovit's body had been placed in a U-Haul trailer and dumped in Lake Willoughby. Investigators searched the lake using a two-man submersible, but found no evidence and Drew was never charged in connection with Bovit's disappearance. He was released from prison in 2001.
Authorities believe Bovit was murdered, but they do not think robbery was the motive. His parents hired private detectives after his disappearance; the detectives believe Bovit was killed by a man who died three months later and that drugs were involved. Bovit did not use drugs or drink alcohol at the time of his disappearance. He is described as an excellent mountain climber and skier. He was a part-time student at Lyndon State College when he disappeared. His case remains unsolved.

A missing person is a person who has disappeared and whose status as alive or dead cannot be confirmed as their location and condition are not known. A person may go missing through a voluntary disappearance, or else due to an accident, crime, death in a location where they cannot be found (such as at sea), or many other reasons. In most parts of the world, a missing person will usually be found quickly. While criminal abductions are some of the most widely reported missing person cases, these account for only 25% of missing children in Europe. By contrast, some missing person cases remain unresolved for many years. Laws related to these cases are often complex since, in many jurisdictions, relatives and third parties may not deal with a person's assets until their death is considered proven by law and a formal death certificate issued. The situation, uncertainties, and lack of closure or a funeral resulting when a person goes missing may be extremely painful with long-lasting effects on family and friends. Several organizations seek to connect, share best practices, and disseminate information and imAge at the time of disappearance: s of missing children to improve the effectiveness of missing children investigations, including the International Commission on Missing Persons, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), as well as national organizations, including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the US, Missing People in the UK, Child Focus in Belgium, and The Smile of the Child in Greece.
