Ottawa student, 19, missing since Tuesday

Quote:
Pineau was last seen around 11 p.m. on March 15, distraught and running from his own house party heading south on Chesterton Drive between Meadowlands and Viewmount drives.

Pineau was said to be very upset.

Curtis Wilson, one of Pineau’s five roommates and a high-school friend from Mattawa, said that Tuesday night, he and Pineau were drinking at a party of eight or nine people at their home on Chesterton Drive. Pineau was joking around with another roommate when the two slipped on ice and she fell to the ground. Wilson said Pineau has been known to have feelings for the girl and was noticeably distressed by the incident.

Michael, call home! Your Mom, sisters and friends love you and are very concerned!!

Quote:
His family are pleading for him, or anyone who might have seen him, to make contact.

"We are deeply concerned about our son," Liz Pineau said. "Michael, please contact us. Everything will be fine. You are not in trouble. If anybody knows where Michael is, please come forward."

“His family is here in Ottawa. We want him to know that we love him and we miss him and we want him to come back right away,” said Miriam Pineau, Michael’s sister.

Pineau left without his cellphone but had his wallet. However, he has not made any debit or credit transactions yet, said Miriam.

“This is not Michael. We are worried that he is injured or in the canal,” McAloney said.

Friday morning 20 to 25 family members and friends started searching for him all over the city.

“We all have maps, five of us are searching at the pine area, some are searching at mental facilities, shelters, hostels,” said McAloney.

Pineau studied one semester of humanities at Carleton University.
That was my first thought too ... the Rideau Canal and all the freezing rain and melting snow and slippery ice.....and no bank activity..... I am hoping and praying he went to some friend's place to 'cool off' and will soon be phoning someone. COME ON MICHEAL!!!!

( 2 ) only after reading a comment on a blog, I realized that the Ottawa Citizen article says Michael was wearing "mismatched hicking boots" : http://www.ottawacitizen.com/news/Po...664/story.html

Family searches for teen

The night Michael ran off he had been joking around outside with a roommate and the pair slipped and fell, she said. Michael apparently had a crush on the roommate and was upset, she said.

“He thought his friends were angry at him and they are not at all,” she said. “They’re just concerned.”

:( no news

Family ‘shaken’ by man’s disappearance
By Jennifer Hamilton-McCharles, The Nugget
Posted 3 days ago


<snisps>
Quote:
John Pineau was hoping his 19-year-old son, reported missing last week in Ottawa, would make his way back home to Mattawa.

But his whereabouts remain a mystery.
..........
Michael has been living in Ottawa attending Carleton University since Sept. 2009.
..........
"We consulted with police and sent search teams in the areas Michael was heading the night he went missing, as well as, areas he would have known like the downtown and Carleton University."

Sgt. Mike Lamothe of the Ottawa Police Service, said police are currently waiting for Michael's bank records to be released.

"We're hoping to get a tip from the poster campaign or a lead from a document we're having traced."

I really hope Michael is ok, and knows how much his family is worried about him. He is a family member of some close friends of mine, and they are so worried. I don't know many more details other than what is in the paper, outside of the fact(which you can sort of gleam from the articles) that there is a history of depression/mental illness. The family is currently scouring hospitals, shelters, and psychiatric hospitals to see if he has checked himself in anonymously or something. How terrifying.

Family continues search for missing teen
Michael Pineau, 19
. .
Quote:
“They still put on their rubber boots every night and search the wooded areas where he might have gone,” she said.

Liz said Michael’s sister Miriam, who works for the City of Ottawa has garnered a lot of support from city staff and has posted a large map which volunteers used to identify possible search areas.

While the police are still on the case, Liz said because of the time since Michael went missing police elected to not do a ground search.

“They felt it wasn’t the best use of their resources,” she said.

Liz also said it was impossible for police to do a personality profile on Michael since he was intoxicated when he left, having drank eight or nine large cans of Molson Canadian beer.
..............
Pineau left the house with only $20 and his debit and credit cards. Liz said police have been monitoring his cards and have not noticed any activity since the time of his disappearance.

“They are posting pictures up at bus stations and as far away as Montreal and Toronto in case he hitched a ride,” Liz said.
..............
Liz said he put on his roommate’s hiking boot as he left and is wearing mismatched boots.

The family is still counting on finding him safe and sound.

We love him and miss him so much and want him to come back home right away,” Miriam said.

I don't understand the reason for no ground searches by LE

Thanks for posting ellabella, I just cannot imagine how his family must be feeling I too am so worried for him and pray he will be found safe and well very soon.

There is a question that has been in my mind for some time now regarding him dropping out of Carleton U last December. The article above says his mom talked to him twice the day he disappeared and he seemed in good spirits. He had not enrolled yet for Sept. courses at Algonquin, and I am wondering if his family was aware that he had dropped out.
Reason I am asking is perhaps he was struggling when/how to break the news to them? Just a thought.
Quote:
Liz said she normally talks to all her children a lot and had talked to Michael two times the day he disappeared.

“He seemed in good spirits,” she said.

Michael, who dropped out of Carleton University in December, where he was studying political science and humanities, was looking to his future.

Liz said police found applications to community colleges — including Algonquin — and an application to the Canadian Armed Forces.

“They thought that was a good sign that he was thinking forward and wasn’t in a deep depression or anything like that,” Liz said.

hm. Interesting that he had dropped out, that is the first I read of it(or noticed it?) the family members I know are not from the same area as he is, and haven't really been able to get a hold of the family(assuming because they are just very busy searching) so I don't really know much other than what has been posted and hwat I've been reading.

It strikes me as odd that they say

Instead of just saying there HASNT been activity..maybe I'm just reading into it.

They are definitely checking the canal, but the water levels are higher than normal for this time of year. The canal runs all the way through the centre of the city as well as the rideau river that it connects to. He is about 1mile from the canal. The family have been searching both, and from quotes in early articles, this is where they fear they will find him.

I think in part this fear is also because the last big missing student in Ottawa(from the same school) committed suicide in the same manner. I imagine this ways on them terribly in the midst of all this, since her case was fairly big in the news.

Here is another MAP (link HERE), zooming out on your map ellabelle, that shows the close proximity of Carleton University to both the Rideau Canal and the Rideau River.

Also the Ottawa River is not that far away. In an article I read that Michael knew well how to get from his home to Carleton U. and downtown Ottawa, which is up north the Rideau Canal.

According to the facebook, Michael has been missing for 1 month today with seemingly absolutely no clues. Sadly, I think come spring, we will know what happened to him, but I pray that I am wrong.

Few leads in missing man case
Family cleans out son’s room in Ottawa
The Nugget ~ updated 3 hours ago

<snips>
Quote:
.......................................

Michael Pineau's parents face the painful task of cleaning out the apartment he shared with a few roommates in Ottawa.

.......................................

The communications division of the Ottawa Police Service said there are no new leads or developments in the Pineau case.

"It's pretty devastating. It's unbelievably tough," John Pineau said Wednesday. "We've been in constant contact with police, but there's just no leads. There's nothing.

"We've thought of the worst case scenarios and those thoughts are horribly difficult, but we're hanging on hope."

.......................................

"We've done everything we can. We've hired a helicopter for an aerial search, conducted a . . . ground search and managed to keep this a high-profile case," Pineau said. "We've searched his running route in Ottawa, which is a 10-kilometre distance, and throughout his neighbourhood."

Just wantd to update that a body has been found, but NOT identified yet as that of Michael.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa...eau-river.html

It was found however, just off campus to where he was going to school, and I have heard speculation that it is Michael who has been found. Prayers, no matter who it was, it was someones family.
