He had served for two years and worked full-time at Joint Base Andrews in the munitions section of the 113th Maintenance Squadron. Baltimore police Homicide detectives and Marine Unit divers recovered the body at about 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday. The discovery ended an intensive missing persons search that began Saturday and involved the assistance of Baltimore County police. Curbeam's body was taken to the Medical Examiner's Office for further investigation, and police did not disclose any details Thursday afternoon on how Curbeam may have died. "We thank the Baltimore County and Baltimore City Police for their dedicated search efforts," Sasseville said. "While this is devastating news, we appreciate the quick closure their efforts brought." The Baltimore County resident was last seen about 1:30 a.m. Saturday. He had been at the bar Bond Street Social and left his group of friends to head back to his car, which was parked at Eastern and Broadway.

Denis Lukashkov, 20 - Earthly body located - NYC, New York

Our heart and prayers to the Lukashkov family.

UPDATE: State police believe a body pulled Saturday morning from the Hudson River in Dobbs Ferry is missing Cornell University student Denis Lukashkov, 20, of Mamaroneck. “It appears to be him,” Sgt. John Maasz said Saturday afternoon. Around 9 a.m., divers with the Westchester County police Marine Unit were called to the river about a half-mile south of the Dobbs Ferry railroad station and recovered the body, Maasz said. Police are awaiting positive identification but believe it is Lukashkov.

Police found Lukashkov’s Honda Accord abandoned on the bridge around 4:30 a.m. Wednesday. Police suspected that he jumped into the river, but there were no witnesses. His mother, Yelena Chelewski, said Friday from her Mamaroneck home that she didn’t believe her only child jumped because he was a generally happy and optimistic person. Sam Saideman, a friend of Lukashkov who set up a Facebook page to help find him, said Saturday that he heard the news and was saddened. He called Lukashkov a good man and a good friend. Lukashkov was a 2011 graduate of Mamaroneck High School. Lukashkov had recently finished two years at the University at Albany and had a summer internship in Albany. His father lives in Russia. His mother said she last spoke to him Tuesday and that everything seemed fine.

 From LostNMissing , Inc:
We know that depression and suicide is common to take hold on young college students as well as the "common" time that underlying undiagnosed emotional disorders, such as bipolar or schizophrenia, may transpire....and we know that everyone that loves someone and recognizes that one may be exhibiting such signs are going to do all possible to try and get them help.

We also know that while we are listing Mr. Lukashkov in our "Friends Don't Leave Friends" alone is due to the fact that prior to becoming missing he was with friends in some type of get-together. Upon leaving, at which according to the reports was in the very early morning hours, he never arrived home.

 Instead, his vehicle found abandoned on the Tappan Zee bridge. His body located a few days later. Police are surmising that he jumped from the bridge. What we do know is that cameras are visible on all areas of the bridge and they will surely find the evidence if he in fact jumped on his own. His mother does not believe he committed suicide.

 Our hearts and prayers go out to her and his family and friends.
 Could things have been any different?
At this point, we do not know.
We do not know if alcohol or recreational drugs may have been involved at the get-together.
We do not know if he in fact jumped himself or may have been car jacked and thrown. (However if that was the case, usually his car would be found abandoned in some side alley or elsewhere. Not in the middle of a very public bridge.) 

What can be "learned" from this, if any, with "Friends Don't Leave Friends Alone?"

A few things.

 1. Take note if a friend may seem like they are in despair or depressed. Do not leave them alone. Help them by offering to call family for them, or to attend with them to a local outpatient hospital to be evaluated. This is especially important when a friend, or roommate, may exhibit repeated "episodes" of depression/anxiety.

 2. If you truly feel your friend may be exhibiting behaviors consistent with an emotional disorder. Please report it to someone in the campus clinic or to his /her family direct. This is so important as many are at risk and family may not be aware that the stress from school and studying can bring about a diagnosis that nobody was aware your friend had.

3. When a late night outing's always wise to have your friend not drive alone after 1am. By that point in time it is best to say to your friend that they can "crash on your couch" and not worry about leaving until morning. Be sure, however, if someone is waiting home for them...that they call and communicate their plans to arrive home in morning as opposed to driving alone at night. In this case, it was only 11pm when Denis departed from his group to go home. Sadly, he never arrived. It is not intended for his friends to feel or be guilty, thus far there is no evidence to suggest that Denis was not "in the right frame of mind" or was under any kind of influence, nor his friends, when he left the get-together. This very well may be a very tragic outcome that invariably could not have been prevented. However, it is still important to list Denis in this site as well as the tips contained within this post...because they are wise steps to take when having get-togethers.

4. Always be sure there is one in the group that is NOT under the influence of any alcohol (or substance) or marijuana. If a group of 4 friends are on an outing and all 4 are "under the influence" , no matter how well in control you may feel you are, that means there is 0 people in your group that has a 100% clear mind to make appropriate decisions.

5. Always try, if at all possible, when attending get-togethers to car pool it and have a buddy with you. We know there will be many times friends get together and all drive separately and/or like to go out solo...but if possible, always try to have a friend come and go at the same time. It just reduces the odds a bit...and that is always a good thing.

We do not condone alcohol, marijuana nor substance intake...but we know it happens and we ask that no matter the gathering, always be sure you are looking out for one another and that someone in the group is 100% "clear free" with no drugs, alcohol or other substances in their bodies. It only makes sense.

More info: 

 Police said Lukashkov’s car was spotted at a McDonald’s in Monticello, in Sullivan County, about 2:30 a.m. Thursday. He crossed the Tappan Zee going southbound into Westchester shortly before 4 a.m.
There’s no indication he visited, or reached out to, anyone on the Westchester side before his Honda was found abandoned on the bridge’s northbound side.
“He had no reason to come from Cornell to this area,” said his mother, noting her son had to be in Ithaca for classes and had gotten a new job there.
Sam Saideman, a friend of Lukashkov’s from Mamaroneck who had coffee with him two weeks ago, said he would have expected a call had his friend been visiting.
“Something just doesn’t make sense,” Saideman said. “It’s just not adding up.”
He has started a Facebook page to spread the word about Lukashkov’s disappearance.
Chelewski, meanwhile, is desperately clinging to hope that her son will be found alive She said she reached out to a psychic, who told her that her son was OK.
“If he was in an emotional situation, why was he playing Play Station with friends?” she said. “I’m still optimistic. I’m still thinking my son is fine.”
State police plan to deploy divers to search the river this weekend.
“We don’t know he jumped,” state police Sgt. John Maasz said. “We know we have found his car on the bridge. We know he’s missing. The circumstances indicate he jumped.”
Police ask anyone with information to contact state police in Tarrytown at 914-524-0223.
 _______original report New York State police are searching for a Cornell student whose car was found abandoned on the Tappan Zee Bridge early Wednesday morning.

Police say Denis Lukashkov, 20, may have jumped into the Hudson River after leaving his car. A Honda Accord was found on the Tappan Zee with its car keys and Lukashkov's identification in it at 4:25 a.m. Wednesday. Police are using radar and sonar technologies and searching through the Hudson River for signs of Lukashkov, according to Trooper Jason Jones of the New York State Police. There were no witnesses who saw anyone jump from the bridge. On Saturday afternoon, police said that divers retrieved a body from the Hudson in the Village of Dobbs Ferry. Although some news outlets have reported that it was Lukashkov, Jones said to The Sun Sunday afternoon that no positive identification has been made on the body yet. Lukashkov’s mother told The Journal News that she last heard from her son when he called her Tuesday evening. He then played video games with friends at Cornell before driving from Ithaca, N.Y. to Westchester County, turning around and stopping his car on the Tappan Zee early Wednesday morning, reported. -

Weston Vandermerwe, 23 - Earthly Body located - NC- Aug. 12, 2013

Message from LostNMissing, Inc.:  We wish to send our heartfelt prayers for the tragic death of Weston.  I want to express that while our campaign is so very important for all young adults with our Don't Leave Friends campaign, I wish to reiterate that in no way do we ever want anyone to feel blame when a loved one has passed because they were not utilizing the buddy system. Nobody can predict deaths but we can only help educate to hopefully prevent them. We are all human and I want to direct this message to Kaitlyn that Weston's passing is not your fault. It is the fault of the person who was driving the vehicle and left to go their own way without reporting that they hit him with their car, did not call 9-1-1 and invariably left a young man to go unattended to his passing.  While this may sound contradictory to our cause, we also realize that there will be times when friends may go their own separate ways after a night out and for various reasons....we only hope that this campaign will help bring awareness to those who do come together and will not leave together to try and find alternatives before leaving establishments, if at all possible. Some of the tragic results can never be predicted, fact is...most cannot be predicted. We know if one could turn-back-time to prevent something that they would. We know Kaitlyn would without a hesitations notice, if she could. We know Weston, without a hesitations notice would, if he could. But we cannot turn back time. We can only pray for Weston's family, for Kaitlyn, their friends and all who love and will miss Weston for strength. 
We also can pray for justice and that whomever did this will come forward. 
For Kaitlyn. 
For Weston's family.
 For Weston.

Man who vanished from bar is found dead along NC highway

RALEIGH, NC - Raleigh police are looking for the driver who hit and killed an East Carolina University graduate.

DOT crews found the body of 23-year-old Weston Vandermerwe Tuesday afternoon off I40 near Hammond Road in Wake County. Crews were painting the road and cleaning the shoulder when they stumbled across the body.
Police say his death is being investigated as a hit-and-run collision.
Vandermerwe was last seen over the weekend after he was seen leaving The Oxford bar on Fayetteville Street, not far from Memorial Auditorium.
Vandemerwe, a recent East Carolina University graduate who attended high school in Apex, left The Oxford with his girlfriend, who said Vandemerwe had been drinking.
 Kaitlyn Holmes said the two of them got into an argument outside the bar, which led to her leaving in a cab.
Holmes reported she last she saw him walking down the street.
Family members weren't able to speak after the police announced they'd identified Vandermerwe's body, but friends have been taking to social media with messages of support and point to the outpouring of support, as an indicator of the kind of person he was.

Vandermerwe was a member of the Phi Kappa Tau fraternity while at ECU.
As Vandemerwe's family plans a funeral in Raleigh, 80 miles away his former classmates and teachers are also trying to cope.
Dr. Amy McMillan traveled to the Netherlands with Weston in 2011 as part of an ECU study abroad program.
"There are so many students that we have here on this campus and as a faculty member they come and go. But you know that you've really met someone special when they stick with you and when you remember them two years later. You know? And that was Weston," McMillan said.
There's a saying, "Once a Pirate, Always a Pirate." In this case those words never rang more true.
"It's very hard for a lot of people. I'm sure it's going to be a very big funeral and a lot of support. And I mean, even just the support from our fellow Greeks here and fellow pirates has been incredible. Anytime someone falls, everyone's around to help pick each other up and move forward," said Kyle Fulk, Vandermerwe's fraternity brother.

Beau Rasmussen 27 - Still Missing - San Francisco, CA - May 19, 2013

An Emeryville man who disappeared Sunday after he walked away from his friends at the finish line of the Bay to Breakers race remained missing on Tuesday and his family said his disappearance comes as a shock.
Beau Rasmussen, 27, said goodbye to friends after finishing the 7.46-mile run about 12 p.m., and said he was headed to the beach, according to San Francisco police. Later that night, his phone, credit cards and passport were discovered near the Beach Chalet Brewery and Restaurant across the street from Ocean Beach.
"I texted him at 6 p.m. on Sunday. He always texted me back and I never heard back from him," said Nicole Alpelian, his stepmother who lives in Portland with his father, and two young brothers, ages 5 and 9.
According to the Coast Guard, no one fitting Rasmussen's description was seen by lifeguards entering the water Sunday afternoon or evening.
He was reported missing after failing to show up for work Monday morning.
Friends said they planned to meet at Ocean Beach on Tuesday morning to search for him.
"It's totally out of character," Alpelian said of Rasmussen, who lives at Baker Lofts in Emeryville and works as a Project Developer for EDF Renewable Energy in San Ramon. "He's been at the company for five years and he's never been late which is why they were so worried when he didn't show up. He took that job because he wanted to save the world."
Alpelian said her stepson was in good shape and loved hiking and backpacking.
"He's responsible, caring and polite," she said through tears. "He loves his job and is a real family guy who is close to his two little brothers."
Rasmussen is described as a white, 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighing 195 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes and was last seen wearing jeans and an old maroon football jersey with "Chris" and the number 28 on the back.
Anyone with information should call San Francisco police at 415-553-0123, the anonymous tip line at 415-575-4444, or text a tip to TIP411 with "SFPD" at the beginning of the message.

 In addition, searchers say that anyone with information about Beau’s disappearance can call the Emeryville Police Department at (510) 596-3700.

 When visiting friends from out of the area, friends need to always be with each other and communicative in all aspects. We do not know what happened to Crishtian? Did he leave off on his own? If so, why? Never leave on one's own without others aware of your whereabouts and intentions at all times...especially when traveling.  Did something happen to Crishtian? Do any of his friends have any information they could lend to help find him? Was Crishtian under the influence of any alcohol the night before? Reports indicate he was last seen at 2:30 am. His mother firmly states that he would never go missing on his own. Where is Crishtian?

Missing:  Crishtian Hughes
Case:  Missing
Missing From:  San Francisco, CA
Missing Date:  February 06, 2013
Race:    W    Sex: M
Age at Time Missing:  20 years old
Height:  5’8
Weight:  Approx 150 lbs
Hair Color/Length:  Short Dark Brown
Eye Color: Hazel
Scars/Piercings/Unique Marks:  Both ears pierced, Scar on left hairline adjacent to his ear.
Police Agency: San Francisco Police Dept at 415-734-3268, Detective Anne Mackenzie, or phone your local police if seen or info to provide.
Case Number: 130112341
Facebook: “Help Find Crishtian Hughes”

Circumstance: Crishtian was last seen by friends that he was visiting at approx 2am on February 06, 2013. According to police reports, when the friends woke the next morning, they stated Crishtian was gone and that he had packed all his belongings and left. He has not been seen since.
From Crishtian’s mother:  On February 4th, 2013 I dropped my son off at the international airport of San Diego Ca. He was on his way to visit a Friend who resides In San Francisco Ca. After he arrived, I spoke to him briefly and he assured me he had arrived safe, and would be returning home Thursday February 7th around 2:30 pm. we said we loved each other and said our goodbyes and hung up. I haven’t talked or seen him since. When Thursday arrived I had noticed that he hadn’t called, so I called him. It went straight to his voice-mail. I didn’t think much of it, at that point, Then On Friday The 8th, I woke up and tried calling him again. still, straight to voice mail. I then called My sister Chelsea Denton, because she also resides In the San Francisco area. She said she hadn’t seen him since Tuesday when she had given him $70. I spent most of the day trying to get phone numbers to locate my sons friends he had been with. It was a failure. Later on that afternoon I had a knock at my door. It was the San Diego Police Department asking If my son Christian was home. I said no, and right then, I knew something was wrong. One of the Boys who my son had been Visiting had called the SF police department because he was concerned whether or not my son had made it home safely. It turns out that sometime between the hours Of 1am and 10 am, My son had packed all his things and left. But the part that I am trying to figure out is why. Why would he get up in the middle of the night in a city with no car when his friends were at home and was his ride to the airport. Now The part that Is even more confusing. I automatically called The Virgin America Airline to see if he had even made it on the flight. Their response? I’m sorry ma’am. we cannot give you that information. The police are not getting a search warrant to see if he boarded the plane as he is 20 years old. Now I’m terrified. I went to get his phone records to see if maybe there was a number I could use to find him. Nothing. The last text message he sent was at 1:18 am on Wednesday night, and then no activity whatsoever. its like he has just disappeared into thin air. Both San Francisco and San Diego police only have detectives for missing on Mon-Fri 8-5, so more delays. Once talking with them, the question I kept getting was Does your son have mental problems? UM NO. If I said yes would he be a priority? And also, because there is no foul play AND he is 20 years old, they basically wont look for him. How do they not know foul play didn’t happen unless they are looking for him? The time line and the story these kids are telling the authorities just don’t add up to my sons phone records.. They wont get a warrant to make the Airline tell us if he was on the plane, because he is 20 and mentally stable. Can you please help me find my son. He is my absolute everything in life and I know my son. He wouldn’t take off or run away like these people are assuming. He never goes one day without calling his mom. PLEASE HELP ME. I’M BEGGING YOU.
