Unsolved Cases: Andrew Karis' Whereabouts Unknown

He's been missing from Pittsburgh since March 1993; though, he was reported in New York City and possibly San Francisco a few weeks after he disappeared.

Pittsburgh's Oakland area is teeming with young people on any given day as students from Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Pittsburgh and Carlow University cross back and forth between traffic going to and from their classes.

Andrew Karis was a student at Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh in 1993 when he disappeared on a March day. Karis was last seen on March 1. Then, suddenly, he was missing from among those crowds of students.

Also known by the nicknames Andy, Drew and Sparky, he was last seen on campus on March 1, that year. When he was reported missing, authorities tracked his credit card and telephone records and determined that he might have purchased a Greyhound bus ticket to New York City.

Karis was 19 years old at the time of his disappearance and would be 39 years old today. He is described as a white male standing about 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing 130 pounds and having brown hair and hazel eyes.

Investigators believe that Karis might have been in San Francisco on March 14, 1995. But since that date, no one has seen or heard from him.

Authorities feel that he disappeared under suspicious circumstances.

Anyone with information concerning this case is asked to contact the San Francisco Police Department at 415-553-0123.
