Eugene Losik, 25, of Lawrence, was last seen after 1 a.m. Saturday near the Marriot Long Wharf at 296 State St. in Boston, according to statements made by his girlfriend to Boston Police.
Losik had been celebrating a friend's birthday at Sissy K's in Faneuil Hall and then went with his girlfriend and other friends around 1 a.m. to the Marriot Long Wharf, where they all were staying.
Soon after arriving at the hotel, Losik decided to return to Faneuil Hall with a friend, then went back to the area outside the hotel.
That was the last time Losik was seen, police said.
Losik's girlfriend noticed he had not returned when she woke up at 6 a.m. Saturday and filed a missing persons report at about 11:30 a.m. Phone calls to his cellphone have gone unanswered, his girlfriend told police.

He had been drinking alcohol and was unfamiliar with the area, his girlfriend told police.

Lawrence Man Disappeared After Faneuil Hall Fete
POSTED: 7:44 am EST February 22, 2010
BOSTON -- Friends and family of a Lawrence man who went missing in Boston over the weekend describe him as "extremely responsible" and his disappearance as out of character.
Friends said Eugene Losik, 25, was out in Faneuil Hall on Friday night celebrating a friend's birthday. He returned to the Long Wharf Marriott where he was staying, and was last seen on surveillance video leaving the waterfront hotel at about 2:30 a.m. on Saturday.
Police, including dive teams, searched the area around the hotel on Sunday and could not find any evidence of Losik.
His girlfriend, Caitlin McGovern, said she hopes he is just suffering from memory loss or is unconscious in an area hospital.
A Boston police spokesman said the disappearance is still considered a missing person case.

This young man is missing from downtown Boston. Last Friday, he and some friends had come into town to celebrate a birthday at a bar, and eventually retired to a nearby hotel. He was captured on hotel surveillance leaving the hotel in the early hours (likely to smoke a cigarette) and hasn't been seen since. While everyone hopes for a happy outcome, I sadly think it is quite likely that he fell in the water (the hotel is on a wharf) and drowned.

“Our hearts go out to the family. This is an unimaginably stressful situation for them,” said Marriott spokeswoman Lucy Slosser. “We have been working around the clock on that since we became aware of the situation.”
Losik’s family, friends and loved ones have permission to put up posters of Losik, 25, around the hotel. Boston detectives are also expected to receive an e-mail list of guests who stayed at the hotel over the weekend in the hopes someone has further information on Losik’s whereabouts, said girlfriend Caitlin McGovern.
Cops scour wharf for missing student
Losik had been drinking while celebrating several friends’ birthdays at Sissy K’s in Faneuil Hall Friday night, cops said. He returned to his hotel room around midnight Saturday to play cards with friends, McGovern said.
Rick Keilty, 24, of Brighton, a friend, said he and Losik stopped at a nearby 7-11 to buy a deck of cards before walking to Faneuil Hall. Hotel surveillance shows Losik and Keilty returning to the Marriott and going up an escalator around 1 a.m. Saturday.

Police say a maid at the hotel later saw Losik get out of an elevator and a surveillance camera briefly shows him walking away.

Losik went to Boston Friday night to celebrate a friend's birthday at Sissy K's, a bar in Faneuil Hall. He and his girlfriend left the bar around midnight and returned to the hotel.
Losik then went for a walk with a friend, played cards until around 2 a.m., and then was seen on video footage leaving the rear entrance of the hotel and walking into Christopher Columbus Park about a half-hour later.
McGovern said the dive team was in the water from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. yesterday and that they found no trace of Losik.
Sunday, divers searched primarily underneath the buildings along the waterfront. Yesterday, that search widened to include a larger portion of the harbor.
McGovern said she thinks, based on the tides and the location of nearby floats and other structures, that her boyfriend could easily have walked to safety had he fallen into the harbor near the hotel. However, she doesn't have any other clues as to what may have happened to him.

Sounds like the authorities are working under the assumption that he is dead.
This article also mentions the accidental drowning death of a Navy petty officer (presumably comfortable in/around water!) near this same spot in 2007... interesting in light of the similar death of William Hurley.

We are all hoping and praying that is not the outcome. Because of the water and the distance from the hotel, it has to be explored as a possibility. Eugene did not have a fondness for water so for him to have walked to the waters edge to gaze out is pretty much not the case. It does need explored as it was only 100 feet from the parking lot of the hotel. So far the searches have not produced any evidence that he fell into the water. Keep the prayers and the posters going if you live in the area, please. There are numerous possible scenarios, as with most missing loved ones and right now the most we can do is keep his picture and info out there so that in case anyone may have any information that they can come forward.
