Family hopes reward will help Surrey cold case

SURREY (NEWS1130) – He hasn’t been seen or heard from in four years and now his family is putting up a $25,000 reward.

Sahil Sharma, a 24-year-old student, was living with his uncle when he vanished in November, 2008. He had gone to Kwantlen University to pay tuition, attend class, but was never seen again.

Surrey RCMP Corporal Barb Creighton says there’s nothing to suggest Sahil was unhappy or was looking to get away. “[There are] no indications that he had health issues, no indication that he was suicidal, [and] no indication at all that he’s involved in criminal activity.”

“There [are] no indicators anywhere of where he’s gone. We’ve tried to locate him through his passport… it’s just been nothing. Nothing on his bank account, cell phone, [or] any kind of doctor visit,” she outlines.

Sahil’s family says a week before his disappearance, he became very close to one friend in particular, but that person was cleared by police.

Sahil is South Asian, 5’6″, and 144 lbs. He has black hair, brown eyes, and a slight beard.

If you have any information about Sharma’s whereabouts, you’re asked to call the Surrey RCMP Missing Persons Unit at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
