    Since Paul moved to another town

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural.

    Since Paul moved to another town, his friends never heard about him.

    Re: Since Paul moved to another town

    Since Paul moved to another town, his friends haven't heard from/about him.
    After Paul moved to another town, his friends never heard from/about him.

    I presume you know the difference between "hear about" and "hear from."

    "Hear from" means he didn't send them any message.
    "Hear about" means they didn't hear any news about him; they didn't have any information about him.
