Arkadiy 'Ark' Tashman (born October 12, 1987) is a missing boy from New York.


Tashman was last seen at a friend's house on January 26, 2005. He departed for home at 2:45 a.m. but never arrived. His cellphone was left behind at his home.

His parents found a written message in his bedroom stating Sorry about this. No wake, no funeral. He was reportedly very upset about breaking up with his girlfriend and according to her, he had considered suicide before.
