Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Fudali was last seen in Narragansett, Rhode Island on December 6, 2008. He'd attended a party at a friend's home in the 70 block of East Shore Road and stayed overnight.
The group was awakened sometime after 5:00 a.m. to the sight of Fudali standing naked, hitting himself with a metal pole from the bedframe, and saying "trust me." They didn't call the police or an ambulance, and eventually went back to sleep.
When his friends woke up the next afternoon, Fudali was gone and the clothing he'd worn the night before was neatly folded on the floor. He also left his sneakers, car keys, cellular phone, Massachusetts driver's license, debit card and $86 in cash. His friends initially believed he's gone for a walk.
Fudali was seen twice after he left his friends' home. Neighbors saw him sitting on a dock at 8:30 a.m., naked or nearly so. Two hours a friend saw him running, still nude, near Galilee Escape Road on the grounds of the 128-acre Galilee Bird Sanctuary. He has never been heard from again.
Fudali was born in Poland and grew up in Wilbraham, Massachusetts. Earlier in 2008, he graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a bachelor's degree in international business. His friends stated he seemed depressed and despondent prior to his disappearance and was acting oddly the last time they saw him, but his mother spoke to him three days before his disappearance and didn't notice anything wrong.
Fudali's roommate stated he had become interested in nature and also very religious, and he spent a great deal of time reading the Bible in the days before his disappearance. He began under-dressing for the cold weather and would walk around outside with no shoes on. He talked about trying a simpler life and even mentioned possibly going on a bread-and-water diet.
Temperatures outside on the day Fudali disappeared were about thirty degrees, and he could not have survived long without his clothes. 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 2–5% 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.
