The Disappearance of Eugene Wekesa

Eugene Wekesa has been missing since November 24th, 2010. 

Eugene was 22 years-old at the time of his disappearance, and he lived with his mother in Bellevue, Washington. He was a student at Bellevue College and was very dedicated to school. According to his mother, Eugene spent the morning of November 24th studying. It was the day before Thanksgiving, so while Eugene studied, his mother went grocery shopping at Safeway in preparation for their Thanksgiving meal. When his mother returned from shopping, Eugene was still studying. However, once his mother realized she had forgotten to get a few things, Eugene offered to go back to Safeway to get them. Surveillance cameras captured Eugene both entering and exiting the store by himself. 


Eugene then returned to his home, but quickly realized that he, too, had forgotten an item. Instead of going back to the grocery store, he opted to walk to the Crossroads Mall shopping center-which is located near his residence. Eugene never returned home and has never been seen or heard from again.

Although Eugene left the house to go buy something, he left his wallet behind. He also left behind his keys and cell phone. Once Eugene was reported missing, investigators pulled surveillance footage from both the Safeway he had visited earlier that day and from the Crossroads Mall shopping center. The Safeway footage did not yield any clues about his disappearance. The footage from the Crossroads Mall never captured Eugene entering or exiting the shopping center. It appears that he never actually made it there. 

Eugene's disappearance is considered suspicious. According to both his loved ones, Eugene spent most of his time studying and did not socialize often. It does not appear that he planned to meet up with anyone on the day he vanished. In 2014, investigators stated that "there is no evidence whatsoever to indicate foul play," but they still consider Eugene's disappearance to be suspicious. There have been no known sightings of him, and his social security, bank accounts, and social media accounts have remained inactive since he vanished. 

Eugene remains missing today. If you have any information that could lead to his whereabouts, please call 1-800-222-TIPS to submit an anonymous tip.
