Pierre Mercon
Missing since November 1, 1996 from Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada
Classification: Endangered Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Mercon was last seen in Richmond Hill Ontario in the early morning hours of November 1, 1996. He had attended a Halloween party which had taken place at the Original Six Sports Bar located at 14 Oxford Street in the Town of Richmond Hill.
Mercon phoned his mother from the pay phone outside the bar and asked her to pick him up at a nearby corner. She had driven him there earlier in the evening so he could celebrate with colleagues who had just finished a federal job training program.
Mercon's mother drove to a prearranged street corner to pick up her son and found it empty with no one in sight. He and his mother were close and didn't mind his calling for a lift. That night there were upward of 200 patrons in the now defunct Original Six Sports Bar.
Only his poncho has ever turned up. It was found under the table where Mercon had been sitting.
His bank account, from which he used to withdraw $20 nearly every day, remains open but untouched.
Investigators determined Mercon had no enemies, no heavy drug-use background, no debts and no reported threats against him.
Foul play is strongly suspected in the disappearance.
