Utrecht man missing for six months

The police are looking for witnesses who can give information about the whereabouts of Churisan Allen from Utrecht. The 45-year-old Utrecht man disappeared on April 10th of this year. The police believe he may have fallen victim to a crime. His case was discussed on television program Opsporing Verzocht on Tuesday.

Allen disappeared on April 10th after dropping his girlfriend off at her job in Amsterdam. Investigation into his cellphone data showed that he then traveled back to the Utrecht district of Lunetten, where he and his girlfriend lived together in a flat. A message was sent to his girlfriend around 7:23 p.m. that evening, and after that his phone went dead. No further contact was had with Allen. The car Allen drove, a white Volkswagen Golf Blue Motion with license plate 35-TXZ-9, has also been missing since.

According to his family, it is not like Allen to just disappear for long periods of time. There's also been no activity on his bank account since the day he went missing, making a voluntary disappearance seem unlikely. 

The police therefore suspect that he may have fallen victim to a crime. Allen had contacts in the criminal underworld, and may himself be involved in criminal activities, the police said on Opsporing Verzocht. It is possible that a conflict in the underworld may be behind Allen's disappearance. Allen also served a long prison sentence for murder. He was released in 2014. It is therefore possible that his disappearance may be an act of revenge, though the police currently have no indications of that.

Churisan Allen has dark skin and short, curly hair. He is around 1.9 meters tall, with a slender posture, and a noticeable cleft in his chin. He was last seen wearing a dark colored tracksuit. The police would like to make contact with anyone that can give information about his whereabouts.
