The Prince George RCMP with assistance from the Prince George Search and Rescue Society conducted a ground search for 32 year old Barry Blain SEYMOUR on Thursday June 28th, 2012.
The search was conducted during the evening of the 28th in the area of the Sunrise Trailer Court on Landsdowne Road in Prince George. This is the area where Barry was last seen on May 23rd, 2012. Volunteer Search & Rescue personnel began arriving at 4:00 PM and continued to arrive as they finished their regular jobs for the day. In all, 15 volunteers searched an area of land equivalent to six Rogers Arenas, according to Prince George Search & Rescue spokesperson, Jeff Smedley. They covered trails, roadways, areas with thick brush and even repelled down steep embankments covered in various types of vegetation.
The search of the area concluded just after 9:00 PM with no trace of Barry Blain SEYMOUR found. The Prince George RCMP are thankful for the efforts of the Prince George Search & Rescue Society and pleased with the results.
Although we are not able to provide closure to Barry’s family and friends, we can rule out this area and focus more on other any other information that comes in states Prince George RCMP spokesperson, Cpl. Craig Douglass.

TWO YOUNG GIRLS MURDERED
Monica Jack & Kathryn-Mary Herbert
..........
On May 6, 1978, 12-year-old Monica Jack was riding her bike along north on Highway 5A just south of Quilchena near the Nicola Ranch in Merritt, BC. While her bike was discovered a day later, it would be another 17 years before her remains were located on June 2, 1995, in a rural area north of Merritt about six kilometres from Highway 5A. Investigative efforts moved forward and in 2007 her murder was added to the Project E-PANA investigation.
...........
On September 24, 1975, 11-year-old Kathryn-Mary Herbert was heading to her Abbotsford home when she disappeared. Her mother reported her missing and tragically 2 months later her remains were located near Harris Road in an undeveloped area. The investigation into her death underwent extensive reviews by various police agencies over the years. In October 2005 investigators from the Provincial Unsolved Homicide Unit assumed conduct of the case.

The murder of 11 year old Kathryn-Mary Herbert was heinous and horrific. It devastated a family and deeply impacted a community. The investigation into the murder spanned years and required a concerted effort by law enforcement to gather the necessary evidence to bring charges against a suspect. The journey to arrive at this point, however, was not just the product of a continued effort by police; it was also the result of the tenacity, persistence and love demonstrated by her mother, Shari Greer, says Deputy Chief Rick Lucy of the Abbotsford Police Department.

Both Monica and Kathryn were young, vibrant and happy girls last seen travelling on roads not far from their homes.
Both children also had incredibly strong mothers – Madeline Lanaro and Shari Greer- who have been amazing advocates for their daughters, says Chief Superintendent Jim Gresham head of the BC RCMP Major Crime Section. Ensuring they had the answers they so rightly deserved was a powerful force that guided us over these many years. While these investigations were led by two different investigative and integrated teams, information has been constantly shared and efforts combined when the same suspect was identified in the two cases.


The totality of three decades of investigative efforts has result in 2 murder charges against 67-year-old Garry Taylor HANDLEN of Ontario. Based on the Criminal Code that was in place at the time of the offences HERBERT is facing one count of First DEGREE MURDER in connection with the death of Monica JACK and one count of First DEGREE MURDER in connection with the death of Kathryn-Mary HERBERT.
The road to today’s announcement has been long, says Supt. Ward Lymburner – Officer in charge of Special Projects Unit. In Monica’s investigation alone, once it was transferred to the E-PANA team, police reviewed over 500 investigative tasks and then initiated another 241 tasks including re-interviewing individuals and exploring new forensic analysis options. Our efforts to bring the girls’ alleged killer to justice have been extensive and exhaustive.
HANDLEN was arrested without incident in Surrey on November 28, 2014. He will remain in custody and is scheduled to appear in Abbotsford Provincial Court on Monday Dec 8, 2014.
In order to further our investigative efforts, police are taking the step of releasing of photo of HANDLEN around the time of alleged offense. Police are issuing a plea to the public that if anyone has any information about Garry Taylor Handlen, or the disappearances of Monica JACK and Kathryn-Mary HERBERT, please call the TipLine at 1-877-543-4822.

Mom of murdered girl says anonymous donation answered part of her prayers

Shari Greer still prays daily for the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for her 11-year-old daughter’s 1975 murder.
In early December 2011, shortly after what would have been Kathryn-Mary Herbert’s 48th birthday, the Chilliwack mom feels her prayers were somewhat answered.
“I asked God to do something that would work,” Greer said Thursday from RCMP headquarters in Vancouver. “A week later, I received an anonymous donation for 10 thousand dollars for a reward in Kathryn-Mary’s case.”
Greer says she has no idea who dropped the reward off at her Chilliwack home — made out simply to the Kathryn-Mary Reward Fund.
“I was just in heaven, I could not believe that anybody had this kind of kindness in their heart,” said the deeply religious woman, who has tragically buried three of her children.
The reward has resparked an investigation that went cold decades ago.
RCMP Insp. Gary Shinkaruk said Thursday he admired Greer’s strength and courage in her attempt to generate new information to move the investigation forward.
“Thirty-six years does not deter us,” Shinkaruk said, pointing to other 30-plus-year cold cases the RCMP have cracked.
Shinkaruk spoke of Kathryn-Mary’s last night in Matsqui.
On Sept. 24, 1975, she had visited a friend and was walking home after 8 p.m. when she met another friend who let her “double up” on his bicycle.
Kathryn-Mary was dropped off within a mile of her Matsqui home.
Witnesses recall seeing a man in a white, American-made vehicle idling between the spot Kathryn-Mary jumped off the bicycle and her home.
Her body was found 55 days later a few miles away near a Mastqui First Nation cemetery by residents preparing a burial.
Police have had a number of suspects over the years — some still alive — but have never been able to narrow down the investigation.
The file was first handled by the Matsqui police then the Abbotsford police.
It has now been reviewed by various police agencies.
Shinkaruk says investigators have resubmitted exhibits over the years that may benefit from technological advances, such as DNA evidence.
He also says the passage of time sometimes helps.
“Some of the reasons or some of the relationships people might have with the killer ... that those relationships deteriorate to the fact that they either find some moral compass and the right reasons to come forward,” said Shinkaruk.
Two other cold case murders from the same era and area have similar earmarkings as the Herbert case, says Shinkaruk.
Greer believes there is someone still out there who knows what happened to her daughter: a bright, musically gifted girl with a voice that will never be forgotten.
Two rewards totalling $2,000 were originally offered in November 1975.
Greer, who holds an annual grief retreat at her Chilliwack home, says the continued support she gets from others — and her belief in God — helps her continue to cope.
“There is no shelf-life for grief. It can come up and hit you in between the eyes when you least expect it ... there’s no such thing as closure, only resolution.”
Police ask anyone with information to call the RCMP’s major crime unit at 1-877-543-4822 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Statement by Insp. Gary Shinkaruk
Good afternoon,
I would first like to thank Shari Greer for being here today. None of us can imagine how difficult the last 36 years must have been for her. After all these years, Shari remains determined to do all she can to find answers and find out who is responsible for the death of her daughter, Kathryn-Mary. I admire your courage and strength Shari and thank you for creating the opportunity to hopefully generate more information to move this investigation forward.
On September 24, 1975, Shari reported her 11-year-old daughter, Kathryn-Mary missing to the Matsqui Police Department.
On November 17, 1975, a partially decomposed body, later confirmed through dental records to be Kathryn-Mary’s, was located near Harris Road, an undeveloped area of the Matsqui First Nations Reserve, by two residents. Evidence from the scene led investigators to believe that her body had been there for some time. An autopsy confirmed that the victim’s death was the result of a homicide.
The investigation determined that earlier in the evening of her disappearance, Kathryn-Mary had been at a friend’s house in Abbotsford. At about 8:30 pm, while walking home, she met another friend who “doubled” her on his bicycle and took her part-way home. At about 8:50 pm, they parted company near the intersection of Townline and Marshall Roads in Abbotsford. Kathryn-Mary never arrived home, and this was the last known sighting of her.
During the course of their investigation, police identified witnesses who saw Kathryn-Mary Herbert in the company of her young friend. These witnesses also observed a white, older model, American made vehicle, occupied by a lone male, parked south of that intersection. The investigation found that the vehicle, which appeared suspicious to witnesses, was parked between the location the victim was last seen and her home. The occupant of this vehicle was never identified.
This investigation has undergone extensive reviews by various police agencies over the years. The purpose of these reviews was to look at previous investigative avenues to ensure that nothing had been missed and develop new investigative strategies that would hopefully lead to identifying and apprehending the person or persons responsible for the victim’s murder.
Over the years, investigators have also resubmitted exhibits for analysis to benefit from technology not previously available at the time.
In addition to speaking to witnesses, family members and friends of Kathryn-Mary’s, investigators have also spoken to the original investigators of the case as well as followed-up on a number of tips. Unfortunately, the person or persons responsible for her homicide remain at large.
Investigators believe that there are individuals who have information that police need to solve this case and bring some measure of resolution to the victim’s family and friends. Investigators urge these individuals to come forward and provide police any information they may have in relation to Kathryn-Mary’s disappearance and homicide.
Police are also seeking any information in relation to the suspicious older white American made vehicle and its lone male occupant observed by witnesses in the area the victim was last seen. We believe that this person may have information that could help further the police investigation.
Anyone who has any information in relation to this homicide are asked to call 1-877-543-4822 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477

I would now ask Shari Greer to say a few words.
Statement by Shari Greer - Kathryn-Mary’s Mother
Good afternoon. My name is Shari Greer. I am the mother of Kathryn-Mary Herbert. Kathryn-Mary was 11 years old when she disappeared and she was found just after her 12th birthday.
Kathryn-Mary loved singing. She had a very nice voice and she could play piano by ear. A friend of her’s once told me that she could always remember her beautiful voice.
For many years, I have been relentlessly pursuing this case and trying to find answers. Awhile back, I prayed. I asked God to do something because this needs to be resolved. Then one week later an anonymous donation for a reward was given to me for Kathryn-Mary.
In an effort to get much needed answers, I am offering a private reward of up to $10,000 for information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of the individual or individuals responsible for the death of my daughter, Kathryn-Mary
Someone knows what happened and who did this to Kathryn-Mary. I hope that with the passage of time this person will come forward and call the police with any information they may have.
