Edmonton police continue to investigate historical disappearance of Dylan Koshman

The Edmonton Police Service Missing Persons Unit continues to investigate the disappearance of Dylan Koshman, and is seeking the public’s assistance in locating the man who has been missing for six years.

“We believe that someone out there knows something about this man’s disappearance,” says Sgt. Neil Zurawell with the EPS Missing Persons Unit.  “Maybe they didn’t feel comfortable coming forward at the time, but people can have a change of heart, and hopefully now they will.  Any piece of information, no matter how small, may assist us in determining what happened to Dylan.”

Dylan Koshman was last seen by his roommates walking away from his home in the area of 104 Street and 33 Avenue shortly after 2 a.m. on Oct. 11, 2008.  Koshman had allegedly been drinking and got into an argument with his roommates and was asked to leave.  Dylan Koshman was reported missing to police by his girlfriend the evening of Oct. 15, 2008.  There has been no answer on his cell phone, and no activity on his bank account since.  Dylan’s family states this kind of behaviour is extremely out of character.

Dylan Koshman was 21-years-old when he went missing and would be 27-years-old now.  Koshman was described as a Caucasian male, approximately 5’9” tall and weighing 190 lbs., with nice teeth, short brown hair, hazel eyes, slight scars on his left cheek and left eyebrow, and earrings in both his ears.  At the time of his disappearance he was wearing only shoes, jeans and a dark-colored t-shirt.

Dylan Koshman’s family is holding a candlelight vigil on the anniversary of the man’s disappearance with the theme of “hope,” and members of the public and media are invited to attend.  The vigil will take place on the big hill at the southwest corner of the 34 Avenue and Calgary Trail intersection at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 11, 2014.  Parking is available at the nearby strip mall.

“Our family is holding onto hope,” says Melanie Alix, Dylan Koshman’s Mother.  “We are praying for anyone that has any knowledge or information of Dylan’s whereabouts to please contact the Edmonton Police Service.  Our family longs for peace and will continue to search for Dylan until we receive closure.”
