  • Details of Disappearance
    Pogosian, a manager of a medical clinic in Los Angeles, was last seen January 23, 2003, leaving a business meeting at a strip mall in the 1200 block of South Glendale Avenue. He had a dispute while on the phone and then drove to downtown Los Angeles, where he disappeared.
    Pogosian's family spoke with him by cellphone the next day, a few hours before a "large" kidnap ransom was delivered to an unknown Armenian man in Los Angeles, police said.
    On Jan. 31, Pogosian's white 2001 Range Rover was found near Andover Drive and Glenoaks Boulevard in Burbank.
    Foul play is suspected.
