Classification: Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Paeschke was last seen in Dortmund, Germany on April 17, 1996. He was a student at the University of Dortmund, Germany. Jens is a very intelligent and sensitive young man, loved by everyone. He failed an exam and shortly thereafter he disappeared. His family believes that was the reason he disappeared. Apparently he was desperately ashamed and couldn't tell anybody of his failure. When he disappeared, he left everything and everyone he loved behind. All he took was his passport, his personal ID, his driver's license, some money and a small backpack.
In 1999, with the help of the FBI, it was discovered that Jens had entered immigration at a Chicago Airport on April 18 1996. He had taken a plane from Amsterdam, Netherlands to Chicago, flying KLM. The Airline couldn't say if Jens had booked a connecting flight to a target other than Chicago. There has also been no driver's license, no social security number, no criminal report on the name of Jens Päschke or Paeschke.
Jens Paeschke could also be living in Canada.
