    Canada - Shawn Kapadia, 21, Mississauga, Ont, 5 July 2015

    "MISSISSAUGA — A Mississauga man disappeared 10 days ago and police and his family are concerned for his safety.

    Shawn Kapadia, 21, was last seen at his residence in the Bristol and Kennedy roads area around 2 p.m. on July 5. His parents contacted police on July 10, 2015. He is described as South Asian, 6-feet tall with straight black hair. Family members don’t know what Kapadia was wearing when he went missing.

    Chapati has not gone missing in the past, and his parents and police are becoming concerned for his well-being as this is out of character for him, police said."

    "Toronto police say the body of the city's latest homicide victim may be encased in concrete, after it was moved from a downtown crime scene to a rural area some 200 kilometres out of the city.

    Investigators have yet to recover the body of 21-year-old Shawn Kapadia, who was last seen on July 5 at his Mississauga home. Det. Dave Dickinson said he believes Kapadia was killed on July 5 at a townhouse on 7 Foundry Avenue, near Davenport Road and Landsdowne Avenue, then moved to a home in Wainfleet, Ont

    There, a John Deer backhoe was seen entering the address and later observed leaving with a large chunk of concrete in its front bucket. Police say the tractor was last seen driving on Broadway, near Welland, Ont., on the afternoon of July 12"

    "Police believe after his murder, Kapadia’s body was moved to the Niagara region and they are looking for a stolen or borrowed John Deere backhoe that may have been used to dispose of his body.

    Dickinson said the backhoe was seen leaving a home on O’Reilly’s Road in Wainfleet – the same residence where Kapadia’s vehicle, a silver Pontiac, was later found."

    "Dickinson is urging landowners in the Wainfleet, Niagara, and Welland regions to check their properties for “recently dug or disturbed soil and/or fresh pieces of concrete.

    From an older article, dated July 17:

    Apparently one of the men knocked on a neighbour’s door and asked to borrow a wheelbarrow because he had to mix eight bags of cement.

    Another said the police asked them if the men had borrowed a backhoe. A backhoe was seen behind the house and is now gone.

    More info in this article:
    Police locate backhoe sought in Shawn Kapadia homicide
    Police say the backhoe was found on Thursday in Niagara Falls, and are still trying to track its route there.
    http://www.thestar.com/news/crime/20...-homicide.html

    Toronto police homicide Det. Dave Dickinson said Friday evening that the backhoe was located Thursday, but that the concrete block it is believed the vehicle was carrying was no longer in the bucket.
    On Friday, Dickinson said police wanted to thank the public for their help in locating the backhoe. But police are still calling for anyone in the area to keep an eye out for signs of disturbed dirt, or freshly laid concrete on their properties.

    Of particular interested to the investigation is where the backhoe travelled between Wainfleet and the undisclosed location in Niagara Falls where it was eventually found.

    From an article dated August 13, 2015:

    A search of the Welland Canal hasn't turned up the body of a Mississauga man whom officers believe is encased in concrete.

    However, Toronto Det. Jason Shankaran told The News today that detectives have received new leads in the search for 22-year-old Shawn Kapadia.

    Bumping this case as it seems Shawn has not yet been located.
    There was an unidentified male found in water in the Niagara region , he does not look like Shawn, but noting just in case of any sort of connection.
