Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Abushaqra was last seen at the car dealership he owned in the 300 block of Main Street in Manchester, Connecticut on December 7, 2011. He called his wife at 8:24 p.m. and said he'd been at a work meeting and would be home by 9:00 p.m. so he could take her to the movies.
He never arrived home and has never been heard from again. The next day, his Mercedes was found in the car dealership parking lot.
On the day of his disappearance, Abushaqra got into a dispute with some mechanics who were renting a garAge at the time of disappearance: from him. They had not paid the rent, and that night they met with Abushaqra to discuss this.
Before he called his wife, Abushaqra called his brother and asked him to come to the dealership because "they're scaring me." The mechanics deny knowing anything about Abushaqra's disappearance, but they have refused to take polygraph tests.
Abushaqra left behind six children, including a one-year-old set of quadruplets. Authorities believe it's possible he left the country to escape prosecution; he and his father had fraud charges pending against them, and his father had already fled to Jordan. The circumstances of his disappearance are unclear.

A missing person is a person who has disappeared and whose status as alive or dead cannot be confirmed as their location and condition are not known. A person may go missing through a voluntary disappearance, or else due to an accident, crime, death in a location where they cannot be found (such as at sea), or many other reasons. In most parts of the world, a missing person will usually be found quickly. While criminal abductions are some of the most widely reported missing person cases, these account for only 2–5% of missing children in Europe.
By contrast, some missing person cases remain unresolved for many years. Laws related to these cases are often complex since, in many jurisdictions, relatives and third parties may not deal with a person's assets until their death is considered proven by law and a formal death certificate issued. The situation, uncertainties, and lack of closure or a funeral resulting when a person goes missing may be extremely painful with long-lasting effects on family and friends.
Several organizations seek to connect, share best practices, and disseminate information and imAge at the time of disappearance: s of missing children to improve the effectiveness of missing children investigations, including the International Commission on Missing Persons, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), as well as national organizations, including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the US, Missing People in the UK, Child Focus in Belgium, and The Smile of the Child in Greece.
