Police said in a news conference Tuesday that there were no signs of external or internal trauma to Millard’s body and that his cause of death would be determined through toxicology testing.

Millard was last seen by friends at Happy’s Irish Pub around 11:30 p.m. that night. Police said he later was spotted at a Greyhound Bus station, where a security guard offered him help but he declined.


Police said they have evidence of Millard visiting various businesses nearby until around 4:30 a.m., when he vanished.

New video obtained by WBRZ shows Millard walking beside a person in a light-colored shirt at some point after he left the Greyhound station and before he vanished.

The video shows Millard, in a black shirt, casually walking beside a person wearing what appears to be a T-shirt and shorts. Millard does not appear to be in distress in the video.
