BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) – The FBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 to anyone with information about a person who went missing over 15 years ago.
John Bui Tran was last seen on April 2, 2005 at a party on Mitchell Street in Randolph. Since his disappearance there have been no reported sightings of or contacts by Tran.
The FBI Boston Division is looking into this case along with the Boston Police Department and the Randolph Police Department. They are asking the public for help in locating either Tran or his remains.
“Mr. Tran’s family deserves to know what happened to their loved one, and we believe someone in our community possesses the critical clues,” said Joseph R. Bonavolonta, special agent in charge of the FBI Boston Division. “The FBI is offering a substantial reward to anyone who may have information, no matter how minor, that will help us close this case and provide his family with the answers they deserve.”
Chien Nguyen, a close friend of the family who grew up with Tran, recorded an interview with the FBI regarding his friend’s disappearance. Nguyen said that at this point in the investigation, he and Tran’s family need closure.
“It’s very difficult knowing that John’s out there and not knowing where he’s at, or what happened to him, it’s very difficult,” Nguyen said. “John’s never left my mind, he’s always been in my heart, and I’ve always thought about him since all this has happened.”
