Details of Disappearance Cemal disappeared from Brooklyn, New York on June 27, 2003. He was classified as a runaway for years, although he didn't take any belongings with him and his family said he wasn't having any personal problems. In February 2011, his body was identified.
Neither the police nor the medical examiner's office tried to match the John Doe's fingerprints or dental records with local missing person reports. DNA testing was finally used to identify the body, over seven years after it was found. Cemal's family plans to file suit against the city; they claim the police and the medical examiner's office mishandled the investigation and Cansev should have been identified much sooner than he was.
