A number of disappearances, including those of Garrick Ollivander and Florean Fortescue occur in the summer of 1996, shortly after the world realizes that Lord Voldemort is, indeed, back (HBP6). Ollivander is held captive in Malfoy Manor for a year and a half, tortured, and forced to make wands (DH24).
Ollivander is gone by the time Harry, Hermione, and the Weasleys visit Diagon Alley for school supplies on the first Saturday in August (HBP6).

About a year after Ollivander's capture, Harry has a vision of Voldemort torturing Ollivander, seeking to know why using Lucius Malfoy's wand did not solve the problem of being unable to defeat Harry Potter (DH5).
