Speaking to a news conference called by IHIT investigators, Nicholas Hannon's father Craig said he last spoke to his son February 25. 

The 19-year-old's car was found abandoned in Langley at a dead end on McKinnon Crescent in Langley. His body has never been found, but homicide investigators said they believe he is deceased.

IHIT Staff Sgt. Jennifer Pound told reporters the circumstances surrounding Hannon's disappearance have been suspicious from the start.

But she wouldn't reveal what evidence has led police to their belief Hannon is no longer alive. 

Hannon's father said his son led a good life and his disappearance is completely out of character and is hoping someone will come forward with information.
