On the evening of February 9, 2008, Roseland left a friend's house in the 400 block of 10th Avenue South in Clinton, Iowa to walk a few blocks to the Hy-Vee grocery store.  He never arrived at the store.  There has been no activity on his cell phone or bank account since he disappeared. He left a significant amount of money behind as he had been saving to buy a house since the age of eight. His shoes were found several blocks apart, but there was no other sign of him. It is uncharacteristic of him to leave without warning, and his case remains unsolved.
