CANADA - Shane Fair, 19, Toronto ON, 16 May 2009
At night's end Shane Fair sat at the bar alone.
It was past last call at his York residence's formal, and friends had already clambered aboard buses rented to return them to the York campus from the hall at Ontario Place.
Fair was wearing a light blue dress shirt and a new suit and tie, his brown hair buzzed into a short mohawk.
Although he could be loud and boisterous, his friends say he was in a quiet mood toward the end of the night. He liked to party and had been drinking, but wasn't "at his max."
Fair, 19, has not been seen since the first hours of May 16, when he left Ontario Place's Atlantis Pavilion and wandered alone out into the night.
No one knows for sure which way he headed, and there are fears he ended up in the lake, about three metres deep at the pavilion and seasonally cold, between 10C and 15C.
Fair is in the Canadian Forces reserves and planned to join the military full-time in June. He loved to walk – once hiking from York to his mother's home in the Beach to see how long it would take (7 1/2 hours). Friends think he decided to walk home after the buses going back to campus fille.
Malo said her son was reportedly seen walking near Fort York, about a kilometre east of Ontario Place, between 2:30 and 2:45 a.m.
Malo said Fair had been very excited about the formal, and judging by Facebook photos of him at the event, "he had a great time."

Poor kid. I hope he just crashed at a friends house. Prayers for the family and friends.Bless the beasts and the children
For in this world they have no voice,
They have no choice.
I’ve gone to look for myself. If I should return before I get back, keep me here.

Video may have captured missing York student
The parents of a missing York University student have uncovered video footage that could give police a clue about what happened to their son the night he disappeared.
Shane Fair's family and friends have been taking an active role in the investigation by going to businesses in the area, to ask for surveillance footage that may have captured the missing teen on the night of May 16.
Footage retrieved from a surveillance camera near the Westin Harbour castle captures a man walking east. A short time later a car driving west makes a sudden u-turn and is last seen driving east in the same direction as the man.
The footage is poor quality and it's difficult to determine if the man in the video is indeed Fair.
In the meantime, another search is being organized by Fair's family on Sunday.
Police called off their ground search for the teen on Friday.

York U student's body pulled from Lake Ontario
Police have recovered the body of a York University student who vanished more than two weeks ago, in Lake Ontario close to where he was last seen.
Around 4 p.m. yesterday, a passer-by who spotted the corpse called officers to a bridge at Ontario Place near Lakeshore Blvd. and Exhibition Stadium, police said.
They have identified the body as that of 19-year-old Shane Fair.
Police don't know how Fair died, or how he ended up in the water.
"That's still a matter of open investigation," said Det. Scott Purches. "We don't have anything conclusive." The body has been taken to the morgue for autopsy.
Police said Fair's body had been in the water for about two weeks.

Is there any update on this Tonia? The autopsy must be done by now?
