11/3/08: Sahil Sharma, 20, Surrey, BC, CAN

On November 13, 2008, 20-year old Sahil Sharma left his home in the Newton area of Surrey, British Columbia, to attend classes at Kwantlen Polytechnic University at 72nd Ave & 128th Street. After attending his various classes, he left the campus around 7:30 p.m. and did not return home. Family and friends are still seeking answers to the whereabouts of this young man who by all accounts simply vanished.

At the time of his disappearance, Sharma was a second-year international student from India attending with a focus on Information Technology. He was student in good standing, and with his tuition already paid and having settled in with his uncle and extended family, everything was in place for a positive future.
