My Father

with 5 comments

This site is dedicated to my father who disappeared in Key West (Florida) in the summer of 1981. His name was Gerald Douglas Oxby, born in the United Kingdom and father of two sons.

It is my hope that anyone who knew my father will contact me and give me an idea of what my father was like and perhaps why he disappeared. So please write a message or send me an e-mail, if you have any information. Do it anonymously if you prefer.

Send me an e-mail: (spammers beware – this will not work for you).

What I know about my father

My father was not an ideal father. In 1972, when I was four years old, he left me and my brother in Denmark. He almost never wrote or had any other contact with us. And he never supported my mother, who was alone with us, financially or otherwise.

Still I think he didn’t deserve to go missing without anyone caring. I feel I have no choice but to try and find out what happened to him.

When my father disappeared the Police in Key West was not willing to do anything, even though some important clues indicate that he was the victim of a crime. I will explain this on the page dissapearance.

Any trace of my father ends here: Key West, Florida:

  2. I understand how you feel. my mom vanished in 1983. Almost the same situation. Because she was human, i.e., not perfect, she was talked about, ridiculed and ignored, and that was just by the Good Ole Boy Network I refer to as the Local Police.

    You and your family have my prayers support and symapthy. Never give up because you are right, regardless of what he did or did not do, he was, and always will be your daddy.

    Best wishes and hopes to you and yours.

  3. I knew Doug in Seattle in 79-80. Don’t have any info that would help solve the mystery, but could fill in a few stories about work he did for me.
