Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Goff disappeared with his girlfriend, Joni Davis, on June 10, 2018. They were last seen leaving the Pizza Hut in St. Clairsville, Ohio, driving a blue four-door 1990 Oldsmobile 88 with the Ohio license plate number EYA 7482. A photo of the car is posted with this case summary. The couple traveled north on Route 7. Neither of them have been heard from again and their vehicle hasn't been located.
Prior to going missing, Goff and Davis kept to themselves and had a routine, and they rarely left the local area. They had been together for twenty-five years. After Davis's mother died in 2013, Goff became her caregiver, and they lived with his twin brother at his home in Martins Ferry, Ohio.
Investigators stated they don't believe Goff and Davis are still alive and they think foul play was involved in the couple's disappearance. The pair's loved ones can't think of any reason anyone would have wanted to harm them, however. Their cases remain 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 2–5% 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.
