Details of Disappearance
Ramin was last seen between 9:30 PM - 10:00 p.m. on January 18, 2002 in Ithaca, New York. He was at the Pyramid Mall on North Triphammer Road off of Route 13 near Lansing, New York. Ramin had been laid off from his place of employment inside the shopping center earlier in January 2002. He was attempting to obtain a new position at the mall at the time of his disappearance.
Authorities believe that he was walking to his residence on Winthrop Drive in Ithaca prior to his disappearance. Ramin never arrived at his home.
Ramin was missed a day after his disappearance by his brother who lived with him, who called their mother to say he had not returned home. His mother then reported him missing to law enforcement authorities.
An extensive search of the region produced no clues as to Ramin's whereabouts. He may have been seen in a wooded area near his residence the day after his disappearance. The sighting has not been confirmed. Ramin is considered to be a very dependable person with strong family connections who would be unlikely to disappear voluntarily. His family members said it is uncharacteristic of him to leave without warning.
