Narrator: John Tran was last seen on April 2, 2005 at a party on Mitchell Street in Randolph, Massachusetts, before he vanished without a trace.
The FBI, along with the Boston and Randolph police departments are investigating Tran’s suspicious disappearance and are asking for the public’s assistance in locating him, or his remains.
The FBI is now offering a reward of up to $10,000 to anyone with information leading to John Tran’s current whereabouts.
Special Agent Christian Fierabend oversees FBI Boston’s Violent Crimes Task Force.
Fierabend: John Tran is an Asian man with black hair and brown eyes. At the time he went missing, he was just 28 years old. Back in the summer of 2004, Tran moved from California to Dorchester, Massachusetts to attend Quincy College. He also worked part-time at a pet supply store in Quincy, and routinely donated blood through the American Red Cross. Tran was often seen on his bike carrying a dark-colored backpack. But nobody has seen or heard from him since the night of that party. That’s why we’re asking the public to review Tran’s missing person poster, which includes newly released photos, and an age- progressed version of what he may look like now at 45 years old. A concerned citizen doing the right thing could help us close this case and provide his family with the answers they deserve.”
Narrator: Finding John Tran would bring his family, especially his closest childhood friend Chien Nguyen, some much needed peace of mind.
We need to find out what happened to John and I hope that by doing this we can get more answers and we can find more truth to this whole situation of what happened, how it happened, and what if anything did happen. I don’t know the words to describe it, but it would put everybody at peace here. It’s been hard for me because I was here in Boston and I was pretty much the last person to see him. So, John’s never left my mind, he’s always been in my heart, and I’ve always thought about him since all this has happened.
If you have any information about John Tran’s current whereabouts, please contact your local FBI office or submit a tip online at tips.fbi.gov. No amount of information is too small or irrelevant.
