Canadian Nuke Scientist Vanishes With 'Absolutely No Trace'
FOX News ^

Posted on 02/22/2010 5:56:38 PM PST by nuconvert

A Canadian nuclear scientist who has not been seen for more than a month has simply vanished, leaving "absolutely no trace at all," police say.

Lachlan Cranswick, 41, a physicist from the Chalk River Laboratories nuclear facility in Ottawa, was last seen on Jan. 18, when he left his job and boarded a bus to Deep River, his hometown along the Ottawa River with a population of roughly 4,300.

Later that day, or possibly the next morning, Cranswick took out the garbage -- and the single man described as a meticulous loner has not been seen since.

Maybe kidnapped by the Iranians? The news recently is starting to remind me of the cold war; assasinations by Mossad, missing nuke scientists....

Probably working in chains in either NK or Iran. Watch for a threat around his family still in Canada or here.

I don’t think it’s Canada we need to worry about, but Iran has sure gotten gutsy in the past few weeks.

Yeah, we need to keep those crazed Canucks from going all gonzo on that nuclear weapon stuff. Next thing you know, they’ll be threatening to do something really radical, like defend Israel.

. . .or, 'living' - in a manner of speaking - in Iran. Didn't they lose one of their own not too long ago. (Blown up in car. . .)

What a world we live in. . .Guess this will go onto the 'unknown status ' column per 'Dead Scientists'.

A terrible unfolding here whatever the case. Should not be happening; these people need 'security'.

Any footprints in the snow? What ARE they doing about this?

Say, Cindy.

Sorry to bother you, but I was curious whether this nuclear scientist could have ever -- TIME LINE-wise -- crossed paths with the missing Saudi student/pilot who attended a Canadian university; I can't recall how to spell his name, but I'm certain that he was on the FBI's most wanted list.

Has the missing Canadian nuclear scientist embraced “Progressive” politics in the past? Has anyone matching his physical description used a Canadian passport to enter IRAN?

Hey, you gotta go where there’s work...

(Sorry, the Israelis wanted me to at least ask.)

He may have noted the time on the so-called “doomsday clock” and moved to his survival retreat full time - and pulled the hole in after himself.

It’s not easy, but people still willingly disaapear all on their own for any number of reasons.

On the other thread, from his website is a photo of him on a beach somewhere in Cuba; however, I’ve read that LOTS of Canadians vacation there. He’s an Australian living in Canada.
