Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Horn was last seen at Connolly's Pub in the 900 block of Market Street in Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania between 7:00 and 7:30 p.m. on December 25, 2017. He called for an Uber ride, but the ride was later canceled for unknown reasons. He has never been heard from again.
At the time of Horn's disappearance, he lived alone in his deceased grandmother's home in the 1300 block of Price Street.┬áBecause he told his family he wouldn't be seeing them for Christmas and planned to travel to Las Vegas, Nevada after the holiday, they weren't concerned when they didn't hear from him.
On January 5, Horn's father went to his home to check on him. Horn's pickup truck was in the driveway and the house was deserted. His father let himself in with his key and found the lights, fan and television on. He also found Horn's unused plane ticket to Las Vegas, and several empty vodka bottles. There was no sign of him. His mother reported him missing on January 9.
In spite of his drinking problem, Horn had never been out of touch with his family. His mother, who was very active in the search for him, died unexpectedly in January 2018, and he may not be aware of this. There hasn't been any activity on his bank accounts or cellular phone since Christmas 2017, and 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 2ľ5% 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.
