He suffered from dementia and had been missing from his cliffside Montauk compound since March 31, 2020. Beard's disappearance sparked a massive search, with dozens of members of law enforcement and K-9 units going door to door and helicopters and drones scanning the coastline.

This show exhibited his photographs, elephant carcasses, burned diaries, taxidermy, African artifacts, books and personal memorabilia.
