Sue and John Kearns noted Thursday [May 2012] was their son David’s 35th birthday.
David Kearns, who has schizophrenia, disappeared from his Ottawa residence Nov. 4, 2010.
“He was looking for an apartment for himself, he had a son, things were looking up for him, he was doing really well. He walked away from his complex never to be heard from again,” said Sue.
“The police were on it for about a month; they couldn’t find him. We hired a private investigator. He was on it for about six months and then he called me and said, ‘I’ve stopped charging you because I can’t find anything. Usually with a missing person I find something, but with your son, David, I can find nothing.’”
John said there was no indication David took any of his belongings as all of his possessions were still at his residence.
His bank account has showed no activity since his disappearance.
“It’s like he just disappeared into thin air,” said John.
“He just vanished.”
