Edmonton Missing Person, Dylan Koshman!

We dedicate this Monday4, Missing Person Awareness efforts to help find the brother of one of our Peace4 the Missing Members, Tara Koshman.

Dylan Koshman, 21 years-old and originally of Moose Jaw, had been living in Edmonton, Alta., for approximately seven months when he disappeared Oct. 11.

Koshman left the home of his cousins, where he was living, after an argument broke out.

He left the house in a dark T-shirt and jeans at approximately 2 a.m. and hasn’t been seen since. His cellphone and bank account haven’t been used.

Koshman has brown hair and hazel eyes. He is in good physical condition at approximately 5’9” tall and weighing 190 lbs. A scar from a childhood accident resembles a deep dimple on his left cheek.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact the Edmonton Police Service at 780-423-4567 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Several web pages including details of Koshman’s disappearance have also been established on Internet sites, including Facebook, where a Help Find Dylan Koshman Cause has been established by family member's of Dylan. Dylan's sister, Tara Koshman, posted the following on Nov. 7th...

My thoughts and feelings on Dylan Koshman

Tonight Dylan will be missing for one month. Unfortunately we are no closer to finding him. We have no new information. This is what we do know:
He was last seen on Saturday October 11th at 2:30 am. His last cell phone ping was on the same tower at 3:30 am…. Then there is nothing. The only thing we know for sure is that Dylan is missing.

The police say it’s not illegal to be missing, but I think it should be. For everyone who knows Dylan knows that he is tight with his family. Dylan’s best friend is his brother Derek. They are two peas in a pod. He loves all his family, no matter if we fought with him or not. His cousins have nothing to do with his disappearance. In fact there is a witness to this. It was just a family fight, and there was alcohol involved. These are the circumstances, not the reason why he vanished.

I have many theories to why Dylan is gone, but none of them fit. I know that the easy answer is that he’s been hurt, or taken away. I will not believe this until there is proof. He is my brother; I love my brothers more than anything. You must think that sure there is a good chance that he is gone, but there is still a chance that he is alive. I am going to cling to that chance. No matter what the outcome we need to find him.

We will search the ends of the world to find him, but we cannot search every stretch of land, every bush. We cannot just shrug our shoulders and say we’ve done all we can do. We will get his face out there… Someone out there knows something, this is fact. We will wait for some information to come forward, and then we will search again. We need direction, until then we will have hope. Life will have to go on, but we will still be here.

Dylan is a younger brother to two; he is an older brother to two. He is a son, a grand-son, a nephew, a lover, and a friend. Dylan Koshman will not be forgotten!

If anyone has any information or thinks you may have seen him, call crime stoppers. It’s completely anonymous, and any lead or tip can help. If you are not sure, call anyways. It’s better to be safe than sorry. The number is 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
