Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Tavakol had dinner at his mother's Northridge home and left after saying he was going to meet some friends. The teenager, who was due to start a job as a bank teller three days later, may have gone to meet with a man he gave money to.
His vehicle, a 1987 Nissan Sentra, was found abandoned three days later in the parking lot of a Ralphs Market in the 14000 block of Ventura Boulevard in Sherman Oaks.
Tavakol had lost most of a $60,000 inheritance in a suspicious business deal and is believed to have become a victim of foul play. He was a Pierce College student at the time.
