People have posted on Reddit and Facebook’s Gainesville Word of Mouth page requesting help locating the 39 year old, who was reportedly last seen at the now-closed The Space Bar located at 402 NW 10th Ave. near the Cypress & Grove Brewing Company in Gainesville.

On Wednesday, a page was created on Missing People In America’s website for Rosenthal, who ran for Gainesville mayor in 2022.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the GPD at 352-393-7500.

Strange they waited so long to report it. Could be fishy in other ways not malice (avoiding debts, changing identity somewhere else…). Detectives will look into that too.

Yeah BUT this is the second missing person connected to that community. The first was David Wright. He went missing in April of 2021. Could be another Gainesville serial killer.

Hi, could you talk a little bit more about the disappearance of David Wright and his connection to the Space Bar? I can’t find any information online.

According to the Missing People in America website, he was missing since April 1 and they waited this long to create that page and to file a missing people report? I agree with previous posters, this is very fishy.

I have found the scant reports weird!
