  • Details of Disappearance
    Shane was last seen by his roommate in the Archstone Apartment Complex located at 5650 Owens Drive in Pleasanton, California. He was reported missing October 1st, 2003. He has not been seen or heard from since he walked away from his apartment early that morning. Anest's bank and credit accounts have not been touched since his disappearance, and all of his belongings were left intact in his bedroom. Anest's car was found across the street from his home instead of at the apartment complex, in the parking lot of the old PeopleSoft campus. Security footage from that parking lot yielded nothing for the police investigation.

    Anest had some run-ins with the law, but nothing that would merit running from his life. He was put on probation for a narcotics violation in 1999 after a search warrant was issued by Dublin police to look for drugs in his home, and was arrested on August. 29, 2003 for a DUI charge. Anest did not arrive for his court date Sept. 29 for the DUI -- scheduled just hours after the last time he was seen leaving his apartment. All warrants for Anest's arrest have been dropped, and he is not considered a fugitive. There's no evidence to support foul play.
