    The Ditmas Park café owner who disappeared two weeks ago may actually have been planning his own escape.

    Josh Rubin, the owner of Whisk who vanished without a trace on Oct. 31, had negotiated with a neighbor to sublet his room in a Lawrence Street apartment.

    FB says there's a significant change to the search efforts; presser at 12pm EST today.

    No live link nor even a TV station or website link for coverage mentioned (ugh!).

    ETA: This FB page won't allow comments on the posts to be viewed...either a bug/glitch (what a shock, not) or they haven't set it up right. You can see some comments by clicking on "Shares" but I suspect it's only the comments accompanied by a "share".

    By Eli Rosenberg

    Found deceased.

    This was a John Doe that was found I think on Nov. 1 in PA. Body was found burned at the bottom of an embankment near the road. I thought the Doe was on WS, but I just searched and did not find him.


    Here is a comparison of Rubin with Doe's sketch.

    ------from the article------
    Here's a timeline of developments in the case based on multiple stories published by The Brooklyn Paper after Rubin vanished:

    Nov. 4: Friends say Rubin was under financial pressure and suffering from mental anguish. His business had only been open for two months but he was reportedly worried about falling behind in rent payments and was considering selling the cafe.

    Nov. 7: Friends, family and neighbors in Brooklyn's Ditmas Park organized a search for Rubin and posted fliers throughout their community.

    Nov. 14: A neighbor said Rubin had arranged to sublet his room and may have been planning an escape from his new business and financial problems.

    Nov. 18: Rubin's family decided to break their silence and ask media to help publicize the disappearance.

    Nov. 20: Rubin's family hired a private investigator to search hotels, homeless shelters and even Zuccotti Park, where the Occupy Wall Street protestors camped.

    Dec. 5: New York Police said the trail had gone cold and referred the case to their Missing Persons division.
    --------------------

    It sounds like the family and friends still don't have a lot of closure, as there is a lot still unknown about what happened to Josh. Hope there are some answers soon.

    NY - Clear Photos of Persons of Interest Released in Josh Rubin case

    The Josh Rubin case was seemingly going nowhere. But recently photos were released of persons of interest, and they are relatively clear. Someone out there has to know who these people are.

    Investigators are looking for two men they say used slain Ditmas Park [Brooklyn, NY] cafe owner Josh Rubin’s credit cards less than 12 hours after the 30-year-old businessman was found dead in Pennsylvania — a duo cops hope will help them crack this cold case wide open.

    Police said the two men used the credit cards at the Woodbury Commons Outlet mall in Central Valley, New York on Nov. 1 — more than 100 miles from where Rubin’s body was discovered. The two men, who appear to be in their late teens or early 20s, were captured on surveillance cameras as they made multiple purchases at several stores in the mall, investigators claim.
