I was shocked that we didn't learn about him until one month after he disappeared.
Evidentally at least one person in Canada shares my shock, someone at WebSleuths posted a link to this Canadian Craigslist entry:

Australian Canuck MISSING Google Cranswick (missing)

check out his homepage .. specifically this page ...
... the guy is a HUGE Canuck eventhough he's from Australia .. his disappearance is meriting only local coverage - out in Ottawa .. hello?? The guy's a nuclear scientist. Earth to Canada - come in please - reality check. Lachlan CRANSWICK .. think Cran Apples and The Brunswick House .. CRANS WICK .. (Lachlan) .. Lachlan CRANSWICK .. repeat it three times ...and tell the Star and the SUN and CP24 to repeat it three times (too)
. Less limelight on the TRENTON creep and more undivided attention on this kid. He's a shining light in Materials Analysis. Not nuclear proliferation but rather Materials Analysis .. more in-line with CSI. Something Canada is good at - and now Buddy is MISSING!
And read his webpage .. what a well-grounded individual.
Additionally he's not afraid to draw attention to scams and black ops. (He probably raised more than a few hackles) which is what good Canadians are supposed to do .. we ain't afraid of shit! This guy is an unsung hero in a lot of ways - I think you'd agree having browsed that link.
All the more reason for us to do the "Good Fearless Canadian Thing" and broadcast his disappearance - far and wide. And not get hung-up over that Trenton Creep. It's more or less a dead issue till the trial anyhow .. meanwhile .. this 'kid' is still MISSING. Location: missing

MARCH 1997 : (CANADA ARRESTS SAYEGH & ONE OTHER SAUDI IN OTTAWA : LINKED TO KHOBAR TOWERS PLOT) In March 1997, with the FBI’s help, Canadian immigrant officials arrested two other Saudi dissidents in connection with the bombing in Ottawa. One of the suspects, Hani Abdel Rahim Sayegh, had apparently linked a senior Iranian intelligence officer, Brig. Ahmad Sherifi, and a local cell of the Lebanon-based Hezbollah organization to a “conspiracy” to attack U.S. targets in 1995, according to various news reports.
