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.

Hotel workers and police are joining forces today to do all they can to help frantic family members and friends track down missing Raytheon electrical engineer Eugene Losikwho was last seen early Saturday morning outside the Marriott Long Wharf in Boston.
“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.

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. Losik - in a gray T-shirt, jeans and black dress shoes - later left through an exit near the hotel’s ballroom at 2:24 a.m.
