Missing 25-year-old son mystifiesparents

Man disappeared in Vancouver after attending a company Christmas party.

Matthew Huszar was last seen Dec. 16.

It’s every mother’s nightmare – a child goes missing.

On Friday, Dec. 16 around midnight, a 25-year-old man goes missing in Gastown in Vancouver. On Sunday, he is declared a missing person.

Matthew Huszar disappeared after leaving an office Christmas party and his mother Danny is extremely worried.

“It’s a really difficult time for our family,” said Danny.

The Huszar family moved to the Shirley area last February and it is unlikely that anyone in that area would know Matthew, although he is an avid surfer and owns a boat which is moored in Victoria’s Inner Harbour.

“He loves this area,” said his mom.

Matthew is a geologist who had just graduated with honours from the University of B.C. and he had found work in his chosen field. He was excited to spend time with his parents and sisters over Christmas and also with his long distance girlfriend.

His mother spoke with him last Friday afternoon when confirming plans for the holidays. He never arrived.

His mother said she believes he is in Vancouver somewhere and the police are following the missing persons case.

Matthew is described as five-foot-11, 160 pounds with brown eyes and brown shoulder-length hair. He is not known to have issues with substance abuse or mental health.

Matthew is an active person who enjoys surfing, boating, skiing, and the outdoors.

When last seen he was wearing a a dark green tweed coat, blue and white checked shirt, black dress pants and black shoes.

If anyone sees Matthew they are asked to notify the police.
