She did leave behind a troubled family: a father, Vakhtang, who had reportedly been acquitted of public indecency and would later go on to stab three people; a brother, Giorgi, who would briefly disappear himself, before returning unharmed within 24 hours, according to Globe and Mail. In the absence of concrete evidence, journalists and the public floated wild theories: Some speculated she had been kidnapped in broad daylight; others that she had joined a religious cult; some thought they spotted her among a group of travelling hippies in Alberta and the slender teen with chestnut hair left behind no hint as to her fate, baffling investigators and prompting them to reach out in all directions interviewing thousands of people, combing garbage dumps and scouring Toronto parks by helicopter to no avail. She had been in Canada just three months when, after walking to school with her brother Giorgi on Sept. 14, 2009, she vanished. For 2 years, the mystery captivated the city, a fascination deepened by Ms. Makhniashvili s equally inscrutable personality. An introvert, she had few close friends, spending her time studying physics. (www.immigrantscanada.com).
