    Details of Disappearance

    Panchyshyn was last seen in Oregon Inlet, North Carolina on April 9, 2011. He was deep sea fishing with three friends when their 26-foot boat was hit by a series of large waves and three of its four passengers, including Panchyshyn, were ejected into the rough water. His two companions were rescued, but Panchyshyn, who wasn't wearing a life jacket, disappeared and an extensive search turned up no sign of him. He is presumed lost at sea.
