    Details of Disappearance

    Goh was last seen in Rancho Palos Verdes, California on February 24, 2008. He and two friends were walking on the rocks near the Point Vicente Lighthouse at 6:35 p.m. when a wave knocked one of the three men into the water. Goh went into the water and rescued his friend, and was coming out of the ocean himself when he was swept away by another wave and disappeared. He has never been heard from again. An extensive search turned up no sign of him.

    Goh was born in Seoul, South Korea, but grew up in California. He graduated from the University of California at Irvine in 2006. He's presumed deceased.
