A 27-year-old man who works for top investment banking firm Goldman Sachs has disappeared after leaving a nightclub - with fears he may have hailed an unlicensed cab.

A Goldman Sachs analyst, John Castic, has gone missing after leaving a nightclub in Brooklyn, New York. He was last seen leaving the Brooklyn Mirage club at 2.30am Sunday, telling friends he was taking an Uber home but never arrived.

He works as a senior analyst at Goldman Sachs and is originally from Chicago. He graduated from DePaul University and started working for Goldman Sachs in August 2022, according to his LinkedIn profile.

On Sunday night, John attended a music gig featuring the Canadian electronic duo Zeds Dead with his friends at the Brooklyn Mirage club. After the event, John informed his friends that he intended to take an Uber to his apartment in Manhattan's Lower East Side.

However, he never made it home, and it remains uncertain whether he indeed called for an Uber or opted for a different route. John was reported missing Sunday, according to the NYPD.

Speculations surrounding his disappearance point to the possibility that he might have chosen to ride in an unlicensed cab in an attempt to reach home.

With no trace of him and his phone being off since that fateful night, worries have engulfed his friends who have had no contact with him whatsoever, and a frantic search has sparked to determine his whereabouts.

Sara Kostecka, a friend of John's, wrote on Facebook : "One of my best friends, John Castic, went missing after the Zeds Dead show Friday night in NY. Any information would be greatly appreciated, as well as sharing this to anyone in NYC that might have seen him."

Kostecka noted that she had heard rumours about patrons being asked to "hop in a taxi/cab from some creepy people" near the music venue. She said she has known Castic for seven years and that he has never been unreachable. She said she is fearing the worst, and added: "I’m supposed to walk with him to my brother's wedding next week … we just want to find John."

"I know there’s been a series of young adult males, mid 20s, going missing and ending up in bodies of water in Chicago recently," Kostecka said, referencing the Smiley Face Killer theory. "I’m praying this isn’t related, but I fear it is."

Citizen sleuths have speculated online that a serial killer is responsible for nearly a dozen bodies pulled out of the Chicago River and Lake Michigan in 2022.

Another of Castic's concerned friends, Jonah Shales, told Fox News that his phone died at some point after he left the venue and hasn't been on since. "We’re absolutely very worried about him," Shales said. "No one has had any contact with him.
