A month before his disappearance, Dickerson started working at Rolo, a men’s clothing store on Market Street in San Francisco, California. He was reportedly saving money to move with Droll to New York, where he had visited in the summer of 2010.
Dickerson played keyboard and was a member of Feie, a local band who performed around town.
On December 1, 2011, Dickerson went to work at Rolo’s and later met his boss for a work review. Since he had no bank account, he received his paycheck in cash.
Around 1:00 pm, Dickerson left the store for lunch and returned home. Later that afternoon his boss grew concerned when he never went back to finish his shift. Subsequently, he left several messages on his phone that went unanswered.
At 11:30 pm Dickerson eventually replied to apologize, but his boss told him that he would be fired if he could not be relied upon to come back to work. After the call with his boss he stayed up talking with two of his roommates until 4:00 am.

On December 6, 2011, his friends and family grew concerned when they couldn’t contact him and filed a missing persons report with the San Francisco Police Department.
On the day of his disappearance, authorities discovered that Dickerson went for a walk instead of going to work, taking various pictures with his smartphone including photos of his feet, the Bay, and a meal he had.
Around 4:02 pm, Dickerson posted sixteen photos to his Facebook account. Before his disappearance, he previously changed the name to Klaus Agnes, the names of two artists he likes.
