UCF #104200195 Location: Mississauga, Ontario, Canada File: The disappearance of Steven Vincent Mylan Status: UNSOLVED Contributor: Jonathan F.
File Number: 104200195
Mississauga, Ontario - Steven Mylan, 18, left his family's Mississauga residence shortly after midnight on February 13, 1998. He was driving a black two-door 1991 Chevrolet Barretta with the license plate number 336-ZHK. He had previously mentioned wanting to travel to the United States for a medicine used to treat hair loss.
American customs officials recorded Mylan's vehicle entering the United States at the Rainbow Bridge on February 14, the day after he was last seen. It has not been established whether he was driving it at the time.
A few days later, a man found Mylan's car abandoned with the keys in the ignition. It was parked near the jewelry stands at the Little Colorado Gorge Overlook at the Grand Canyon in Arizona. The man took the car for himself and drove it around for a few months until it broke down.
On June 8, 1998, nearly four months after Mylan's disappearance, his car was found stripped and parked off State Route 64 in Flagstaff, Arizona. It had been there for months. A search of the Little Colorado Gorge, beneath where the car was left originally, turned up no indication of his whereabouts.
Mylan's family told authorities that it is uncharacteristic of him to leave without warning; they cannot think of an explanation for his disappearance. At the time of his disappearance, he was a student at Humber College's north campus in Toronto, Ontario, majoring in business. Canadian authorities are investigating this case.
Steven's vehicle, described as a black, two door, 1991 Chevrolet Baretta, was later located on June 8, 1998 at Lookout Point at the Grand Canyon in Coconino County, Arizona. Locals in the area advised the car had been in the area since February 1998.
It is worth noting that no evidence has been discovered indicating that Steven ever even made it out of Canada before disappearing. It could be just as likely that an earlier, unknown person stole his car first, driving it into the United States when it was first noticed entering, before ultimately abandoning it for reasons unknown. Sadly, this theory is nothing more than empty speculation.
