Just after midnight, he told his mother that he was on his way home but never showed up. Cell phone records show he was heading southbound on Granville Street to cross the Granville Bridge.

The family started a fundraiser to raise money for a private investigator and underwater searches.

“Somebody somewhere must have seen him,” says his mother, Wagma Khawar. “We miss Suleiman very much and we will go to any lengths to find him."

Khawar is South Asian, six feet tall, with a slim build, short black hair, and a black beard with a mustache. He was last seen wearing a blue button-down shirt over a white t-shirt, black jeans, and black shoes with white soles.
