Grand Theft Auto 4 Guide - Random Characters

There are a total of 14 unique pedestrians in Liberty City. They are denoted on the radar by a blue person symbol, which will only appear when you are relatively close to one of them. Several of the characters have more than one task for Niko; in this case, they will appear at their next location only if their previous task has been completed. Refer to the map for each character's initial location, as well as their subsequent locations. Keep in mind that these characters are unlocked by completing missions, so refer to the text to determine if a character will appear for you.

Note: These characters will not appear at their next location the instant you complete their previous task; you may have to wait a couple of in-game days or a week before they appear. Furthermore, some characters will only appear at certain times of the day. The exact time of day that each character can be found is not known, so return to their location at a later time to see if their appearance is triggered then.

Ivan, Cherise, and Clarence are not needed to attain 100% completion.

Brian

Complete the “It's Your Call” mission in Roman's mission line to unlock this character.

Brian 2: You'll have to wait a day or two before Brian will appear again.  Take Brian to the dealers, and then to his place on Wappinger Avenue to complete the task.

Brian 3: It may take quite awhile after the second encounter (more than one in-game week) for Brian to appear here. When you do run into him, first take Brian to see his dealer, kill the attackers, and then drive him to his place on Wappinger Avenue to complete the task,

Jeff 1: Follow Jeff's wife to a café, step inside, find the couple upstairs and take a picture of them using your cell phone camera.

Jeff 3: It may be awhile after the second encounter (up to a week) for Jeff to appear here. He should be at the location at around 20:00. When you do run into him, stand and watch what happens after the cutscene. Nothing to it.

My game progress is at 99.50%. I've beat the game already and it only shows that I've met 13 Random Characters but I've recieved the "No More Strangers" achievement. Does anyone know what times does each character appears? I've gone through all random character locations and I still can't find any of them. Can someone please help? Thanks.
