For Sue Kearns, it is the agony of not knowing whether her missing son is dead or alive that kills her.
David Luborsky, a young father who regularly phoned his mom, vanished without a trace in Ottawa in November 2010.
He would celebrate his 35th birthday on April 26.
Kearns said her heart still skips a beat when the phone rings, wondering if it will be her son.
But more than a year after Luborsky disappeared, that call has never come, despite Kearns hiring a private investigator and offering a reward.
“My son would call me, I know my son. I’m just waiting for him to call,” said Kearns from her Windsor home on Easter Monday. “It’s the not knowing. You cannot explain how I feel. Empty.”
The Kearns are one of several families in Ottawa and hundreds across the province living with uncertainty over the fate of their loved ones.
Luborsky — who also goes by David Kearns — is schizophrenic and visited the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre on a regular basis, where he played basketball.
Shortly before he disappeared, he told friends around the Parklane Residence that he was about to come into a large sum of money.
Luborsky was in the process of signing documens to entitle him to be part of a multi-million-dollar class-action settlement against pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly. The company was accused of not properly advising Zyprexa users of dangerous side effects that caused Luborsky to lapse into a four-day coma a decade ago. He was a signature away from thousands of dollars.
His Ottawa family last heard from Luborsky on Nov. 2, 2010.
Two days later, staff at his Merivale Rd. home reported him missing.
Ottawa police reported no activity in the fall and Kearns has heard nothing since.
A private investigator hired by the family also turned up no trace of Luborsky’s location.
Kearns believes her son may have suffered a psychotic break, but that doesn’t make the uncertainty any easier.
Reports of found remains surface from time to time, worrying Kearns, although she clings to the hope no news is good news.
“It’s the most bizarre thing that’s ever happened to me,” said Kearns. “It’s heartbreaking. It’s affecting everyone. Really, we just want him back.”
