    JOHAL, 21, Missing November 2010 Surrey BC
    February 27, 2011


    Sarabjit has been missing since November 2010. Her car was found about a week later but there has been no sign of Sarabjit since.

    Her car was found in New Westminster. According to a map source:

    BC-10 W and BC-91 N 24.6 km - about 25 mins
    152 St and BC-99A N 18.5 km - about 28 mins[/TD]
    152 St 19.6 km - about 29
    or as short as 13 minutes

    I asked a FB friend in India for some advice. His comments are self explanatory:

    "Punjab in north India naturally, just across the border from Pakistan. She appears to be a follower of Sikh religion. Their males wear turbans and sport long beards. The name Sarabjit is quite telltale. Hundreds of thousands of Sikhs have migrated from India to several countries in the western hemisphere, including USA, UK, Canada, Ecuador, Italy, etc. Search the net for Sikhism and its followers. Encyclopaedia Britannica has one of the best entries on this topic."

    "As I said, the name Sarabjit is quite telltale. Only the Punjabis -- that too Sikhs -- spell it that way. In my neck of the woods it would be written as Sarvajeet and in Bengal it would be Shorbojeet. The Punjabis have mostly unisex names. Same given name for both males and females. To differentiate betwwen the sexes, they add two suffixes - Singh for man, Kaur for woman. Although this Sarabjit did not have that Kaur after her name, it was easy to identify her ethnicity from her pix. We have an innate talent for that and we are rarely wrong. A person can be identified from his accents, dress, physiognomy, the food he normally eats, the language he speaks, and also the place where he lives or originally hails from. We have 30 states, each with its own ethnic identity, language, cultural nuances, and beliefs. All Sikhs originally came from Punjab. They now live in different parts of India or in other countries but till about 250 years they were confined to the area between Delhi and Lahore (now in Pakistan)."

    "Very likely, if she came from India and not born and brought up in Canada. There too the chances of arranged marriage would be high."

    "It's really hard to guess. JUST anything could have happened to the poor thing, including accidental death or abduction or god forbid, even rape ... Chance of her leaving Canada on her own without clothes and passport and money are very rare. Unless she had planned the whole thing beforehand and removed her things to some hideout from where she left for the airport all dressed up. But then I don't think there are any official records of her departure. So did she leave illegally aboard some tramp ship? Sorry, I am just unable to comprehend the modus operandi."

    "No, Johal is not a very common name, I mean not common as some others in that community."

    The first thing I thought about was her clothing. I don't think she
    would be going a liaison dressed so casually.


    I took a look from a satellite to see what kind of community where Sarabjit lived. It is a single home community. A relative said Sarabjit took her keys with her and she would be back shortly.

    Pajama pants are not usually worn in public. However, it is a fad among young people and to the less advantaged to wear them in public.

    If she needed personal hygiene products, why would she drive almost 30 miles away?

    Did someone call her to have them picked up from work?

    there is a comment that husband came home at 2:30, spoke briefly with his wife. Another interview or news report said husband did not see her before she left home. "Her husband told CTV News he realized she was gone when he came home from work early Sunday morning. ”I don’t know why she leave the house,” he said. AND
    His grandmother says the night Sarabjit disappeared she went to get something from her car and said she would be right back. She took her keys and put on a green jacket but never came back. Sarabjit, who works as a cleaner at Chocolate Works in Coquitlam...

    What did the Husband say during the interview?
    Husband would not initially agree to interviews due to "fever"

    did Sarabjit take her phone with her?

    Is 4AM is a shift change time in British Columbia?

    Why would she leave her home at 3:30AM?

    Was Sarabjit hijacked at a traffic light or stop sign?

    Were there any signs of a struggle in the car, or un identified fingerprints or fibers?

    What items were missing from her home, passport, money, jewelry?

    How much time elapsed between her disappearance and Sarabjit being reported missing?

    Who reported her missing?

    Who was interveiwed when she disappeared?

    Who were Sarabjit's best friends?

    Some of the above information was taken from the North American Missing Persons Network

    Surrey BCMissing Indo-Canadian Woman’s Car Found But Still No Signs Of Her
    SURREY – While the vehicle of the missing Indo-Canadian woman has been located by the Surrey RCMP, police say there are still no signs of Sarabjit Johal who went missing on the early morning of Sunday Nov. 28.
    The Surrey RCMP had previously requested the public’s assistance in locating her vehicle, a green 1992 Toyota Camry with BC licence plate “094NEA”. The vehicle was located on December 4 in New Westminster.
    Police said Johal’s whereabouts are still unknown at this time and they continue to appeal to the public for further information on this matter. Johal, 21, was last seen driving away from her Surrey home at 3:30 a.m. on Nov. 28 in her 1992 Toyota Camry.
    The car was discovered late Saturday, Surrey RCMP say, and has now been towed for forensic examination. Johal’s coworkers say her disappearance is very out of character, and her family has put up a $10,000 reward for any information that will lead to her whereabouts.
    Last week, her husband Malkit Johal told reporters he thought his wife was somewhere in Surrey because she’s not familiar with roads outside of the city. But her employer says she drove from Surrey to her job in Coquitlam in her green car regularly. Her husband told CTV News he realized she was gone when he came home from work early Sunday morning. ”I don’t know why she leave the house,” he said.
    His grandmother says the night Sarabjit disappeared she went to get something from her car and said she would be right back. She took her keys and put on a green jacket but never came back. Sarabjit, who works as a cleaner at Chocolate Works in Coquitlam, is described by coworkers as reliable and friendly. Anyone with information is asked to call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.

    Police locate car of missing Surrey woman

    By Cheryl Chan, The Province December 6, 2010
    Police have found a car belonging to a missing Surrey woman who vanished over a week ago.
    Sarabjit Johal, 21, was last spotted on Nov. 28 leaving her house in a green 1992 Toyota Camry with B.C. licence plate 094 NEA.
    The car was found Saturday evening in a neighbouring community, said Const. Peter Neily of Surrey RCMP.
    “It’s an important step in the investigation,” said Neily of the recovered car.
    “Obviously our hope was to locate the vehicle with Ms. Johal safe and sound inside of it, but we’re not able to do that.”
    Neily said investigators have thoroughly examined the car for forensic evidence. The results will not be released because of the ongoing investigation.
    Johal, a newlywed who lives in a house near 126th Street and 91A Avenue wth her husband, was last seen wearing a pink T-shirt, green jacket, and white pyjama bottoms.
    Her family said it is out of character for her to go missing.
    It is offering a $10,000 reward for information on her whereabouts.
    Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.

    $10,000 reward in newlywed's disappearance

    The family of a missing Surrey, B.C., newlywed is putting up a $10,000 reward for any information that will lead to her whereabouts.
    Sarabjit Johal, 21, was last seen driving away from her home at 3:30 a.m. on Sunday in her 1992 Toyota Camry. Her family and coworkers say her disappearance is very out of character.

    Her husband, Malkit Johal, told CTV News he realized she was gone when he came home from work early Sunday morning.
    "I don't know why she leave the house," he said.
    His grandmother says the night Sarabjit disappeared she went to get something from her car and said she would be right back. She took her keys and put on a green jacket but never came back.
    A neighbour, Cory, says he told police about a car he heard early Sunday morning making a lot of noise.
    "At first I thought an alarm was going off. I wasn't sure what was going on. It sounded like he was peeling off, just taking off, laying on the horn at someone," he said.
    Sarabjit, who works as a cleaner at Chocolate Works in Coquitlam, is described by coworkers as reliable and friendly.
    Her boss, Ingrid Sheere, said one of her family members called to see if she had arrived for work on Monday morning. She hadn't.
    "She was super reliable, always on time," she said. "When she left on Friday, she was happy as always and wished us a good weekend."
    Earlier this week, her husband told reporters he thought his wife was somewhere in Surrey because she's not familiar with roads outside of the city. But her employer says she drove from Surrey to her job in Coquitlam in her green car regularly.
    On Thursday, the husband's family repeatedly denied to give interviews to reporters. They said Sarabjit's husband couldn't speak because he was in bed with a fever.
    The RCMP has interviewed Malkit Johal several times. They summoned the missing woman's sister, Narinder, to RCMP headquarters for questioning Thursday.
    Const. Peter Neily says finding the newlywed's missing car is a priority.
    "It is going to be a starting point that we believe she left in the car, therefore we think the car would be associated to her. So hopefully if we find the car we'll find her," he said.
    The couple has been married less than a year. Sarbjit came to Canada three years ago and her husband a year later. It is an arranged marriage.

    Newlywed pleads for help finding missing B.C. woman
    By: ctvbc.ca
    Date: Wednesday Dec. 1, 2010 5:47 PM PT
    The husband of a missing Surrey, B.C., woman is asking for the public's help to find his new bride, who disappeared over the weekend.
    Sarbjit Johal, 21, was last seen at 3:30 a.m. on Sunday as she drove away from her home in the area of 126 Street and 91a Avenue. Police say family members reported her driving away in her car, a green 1992 Toyota Camry with the licence plate 094NEA.

    Her husband Malkit returned from work to find her gone.
    "I don't know why she left the house," he told CTV News. "We didn't find any clues."
    Sarabjit and Malkit are newlyweds -- they honeymooned in Whistler in March.
    "Everything was going well," Malkit said.
    He says his wife's disappearance is totally out of character, and he hasn't had any phone calls from her.
    "It's the first time she left the house," he said. "She left the phone in the house -- I don't know where she went."
    Now members of the family are papering the neighbourhood with posters of the missing woman, who is described as 5-6 tall, 146 pounds, with long brown hair usually tied in a ponytail. Sarabjit, who is of South Asian descent, was last seen wearing a pink t-shirt, green jacket and white pajama bottoms.
    Surrey RCMP say they are actively investigating the disappearance, but won't divulge any theories about where she has gone -- or why.
    "To get into specific details about this one, I don't really want to do that at this time. I don't want to compromise any ongoing investigation," Const. Peter Neily said.
    "For someone to leave at that time of the morning out of character, that does cause us concern as police. It also causes her family concern."
    Sarabjit's family and police are asking anyone with information on her whereabouts to call Surrey RCMP.
