Please Help us Find Aaron Derbyshire
What happened to Aaron Derbyshire?
Aaron Derbyshire's clothes still hang in the closet and his car sits in the driveway, but RCMP are no closer to discovering what happened to the young man three years ago.
Aaron's mother Glenda appeared along with other members of the family at a police press conference to plead for information into the disappearance of her son.
"It was three years ago today that I last saw my son and talked with
"It's extremely difficult to go each day knowing he is not with us."
Glenda said an even more difficult experience is thinking that Aaron may not be found.
"We need to find him for us."
Glenda said Aaron was the second of four boys, and all of them are special to her. She asked that anyone with any information about Aaron's disappearance phone Crimestoppers or the local RCMP detachment. She pointed out that even little things that do not seem important could be a lead in the case.
Glenda said she and her husband were high school sweethearts, who got married and started a family right away. She noted that both come from large families.
"Our children, we believe, are a blessing to us."
Glenda said that Aaron was an amazing young man with a wonderful future being planned for him, and the family misses him every day. She said she only hopes that one day a phone call will come in with information leading to discovering where he is.
"There's no reason that anybody would want to hurt him."
Glenda added that the family is a close one, and the experience has been difficult. She thanked the family's friends and neighbours for their support.
RCMP Const. Steve Holmes said Aaron was last seen on Sept. 30, 2006 at the Level night club. Holmes said Aaron's friends left the club while he stayed behind. He noted the family reported him missing when he failed to show up for a planned rafting trip.
Holmes said RCMP members from the Serious Crimes Unit are dedicated to Aaron's case, and have interviewed close to 270 witnesses. Holmes noted that the time passed since Aaron's disappearance does not mean the case will not be solved.
"History shows it is possible to find out what happened to people even after many years."
Holmes said missing persons cases are reviewed and any information received is added to what is already known. He said that people deal with events differently and someone with information may yet come forward.
"Though they've been reluctant, they may reconsider."

The Ottawa Citizen August 20, 2011
Aboriginal women in Canada need to know that the police are working for them. That's one big reason why it's important to find the truth about what happened to Maisy Odjick and Shannon Alexander.
Another reason is that their family and friends have been through hell, and they need to know where the girls went after they were last seen on Sept. 5, 2008. The upcoming anniversary will be painful no matter what, but it will undoubtedly be more so if it passes with the case still unsolved. Maisy and Shannon were just 16 and 17 when they disappeared from Kitigan Zibi-Maniwaki area in Quebec. Family members have said that police seemed to assume at first that the girls were runaways. If the girls did run away, they didn't take anything with them.
As the Citizen's Gary Dimmock reported this week, police are now investigating potential links to a sex offender from the area who recently committed suicide in jail.
The Native Women's Association of Canada "has documented more than 600 cases of missing and murdered Aboriginal women and girls across Canada," according to a statement on its website. Every one of those girls and women has a story, and every one of those stories matters. So long as there are any lines of investigation to follow, the police must not let the cases of Maisy and Shannon drop.

Ruby Anne HARDY
Ruby Anne HARDY, age 37, born on March 23, 1965. Ms. Hardy was last seen in 1998 and was reported missing to Vancouver police yesterday, March 27th, 2002. She is described as being 5 feet, 2 inches tall, weighing 131 pounds, having brown hair and eyes and being Native Indian. She often uses the name 'Ruby GALLOWAY'.
When the news about these women started to surface, many people approached me to find out if my mother was one of the first 50. I didn't want to think about it at all. I didn't want to picture my mother being hurt in the ways described in the media. I felt sick to my stomach hearing about what the things that happened to those women.
Once the names were revealed, there was a slight sense of relief when I didn't find my mother's name. Don't get me wrong, I obviously felt for the women and their families, but that hope was back in my mind that my mother was still alive. Once the news of the additional five women being added to the list came out, I was told that my mother was on the list. My heart sank. My fears were realized.
Even though my mother has been out of my life for many years, a day doesn't go by that I don't think about her. I always hope that she is doing all right, despite her problems. I remember my mother as a strong woman that knew how to survive. Despite what people may think, my mother took great care of me and my sister and brother. She always made sure that we had food, shelter and clothing. She was a loving mother that would do anything for her children. She did the best she could with what she had to work with
Despite her problems, I never questioned her love for us. I have come to realize that having an addiction is like having a disease. It takes a long time to get well again. I pray every night that my mother is safe and has started coping with her illness. I hope that having her name on the list will make her come forth and say that she is all right. However, if this doesn't occur, perhaps my family and I will have some sort of closure.
Mom remains optimistic that daughter still alive - May 27, 2005

Date: Sunday Apr. 29, 2012 8:03 PM PT
The family of a 17-year-old boy from Mission, B.C. who disappeared without a trace five years ago has issued a heartfelt plea for answers.
Jeff Surtel vanished just after midnight on April 29, 2007 after he was last seen by neighbours riding his mountain bike. An intense search for the teenager followed shortly afterward, but neither he nor his bike was found.
Jeff's parents Gary and Dawn Surtel have not been able to move past the loss of their eldest son.
"It's been horrible. There's not a day that goes by that we don't think of Jeff. There's not a young man that I pass in the street and I don't look at him," Gary said.
"It's pretty unbelievable, just hope one day he's going to knock on the door, but he never does," Dawn said.
The week Jeff went missing his parents had discovered his grades were slipping. A month earlier he had stopped talking to his brother.
Dawn says someone must have information about her son's disappearance.
"I think he just went out to think and something happened, and somebody knows what happened," she said.
Gary says the discovery of Jeff's bike could give an important clue.
"Just wherever the bike was found would tell us where to start to look, because right now we have no idea which direction he went," he said.
The Surtels urge their son to call them or the police to let them know whether he is all right.
"I know he's a man now, he's 22, so if he is out there, wants to live his own life, just let us know. I mean we're just heartbroken here," Dawn said.
The couple knows there is a possibility Jeff may not be alive, but they are holding onto hope.
"It's a hard word that ‘hope,'" Dawn said. "It just leads to disappointment, every single time, but I guess you just can't stop hoping."
An age-progressed picture of the teenager has been released in an effort to help figure out what happened to him. Anyone with information on his disappearance is asked to call Mission RCMP or Crimestoppers.
With a report from CTV British Columbia's Bhinder Sajan

Bonnie Joseph has been missing for more than a year and her loved
ones are worried nobody has noticed.
Joseph, 32, was not missing in the usual sense, at least not at first. The Yekooche woman had a longtime drug addiction and was prone to unreliable behaviour, family said, but then things took a couple of turns that were alarming even on her scale.
"She's been fighting for her kids since day one; she never misses her court days or her visitations, but now its been more than a year. It is not like her at all," said Dean Joseph, a cousin and Yekooche band's treaty consultation co-ordinator.
"She has very concerned relatives. They are all coming to me to find out if I've heard anything, and everytime there's a body found they all call."
Police, led by the Fort St. James RCMP are aware of the disappearance and are investigating.
Another cousin, Jo-Anne Bertram, said Joseph has fallen through some significant cracks. She does not have much community support, which is partially why she ended up addicted in the first place and partially why she was not considered missing for quite some time, Bertram said. Her mother and father are both deceased, her grandmother recently died and only her grandfather William Joseph remains from her ascendants.
"Most of her family members are drinking or on the streets. It is a sad, sad story," said Bertram. "All the people who really cared about her are gone and most of the ones left behind aren't really here, either. I was pretty close to that same road, too, but my mom put me into counselling and I straightened out my life. I had lots of support from family and friends, but without that support you can easily go off the path."
Joseph's path involved a lot of hitchhiking. She sometimes lived on the Yekooche reserve out in the remote wilderness beyond Fort St. James. Sometimes she lived in Vanderhoof and sometimes she lived in Prince George. The high-risk mode of highway transportation was what she commonly did. The last time Bertram saw her was at a bar in Vanderhoof in the fall of 2007 as Joseph was about to hitchhike to Prince George. Bertram loaned her some money and it was the last time she saw or heard from her cousin.
It was not the last evidence of her whereabouts, however.
"I went about it a different way; I went through the Ministry (of Children and Family Development) following the last place she got her (social assistance) cheque," said Dean Joseph. "We found out that in early summer she picked up her cheque in the Kamloops area, and she said then she wouldn't be applying there again, she would be working her way home, but she never arrived. That's where we lost track of her."
For several months nothing has been known of her whereabouts.
Bonnie Joseph is described as five-feet, four-inches and 120 pounds with dark-brown hair and brown eyes. Anyone with information is asked to call the Fort St. James RCMP at 250-996-8269 or give information anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS / www.pgcrimestoppers.bc.ca.

My son 'Charles' Karoly John HORVATH-ALLAN, born 21 Aug 1968, in Cochenour, Ontario - raised in England went missing from Kelowna BC Canada whilst working and back packing his way across Canada, the Country of his birth.
I have been searching for the fate of my only son for 19 years and have made many extensive trips to Canada to search for Charles.
May 2008 - 19th Anniversary - The Kelowna Chapter of the Compassionate Friends had Charles' name engraved upon their Brevity Wall in the Kelowna Cemetery.
Corpl Lisa Cullen - Serious Crime Unit now has Charles' missing person
file no 89/21784.
Tel 250 470 6329 email: lisa.CULLEN@rcmp-grc.gc.ca
It is the belief of the RCMP that Charles is deceased.
Charles' Nana and I made our first trek across Canada in 1990 to back track all the places Charles had visited to see if we could find him. I established that he had been working student jobs and camping in Kelowna where some of his belongings were later recovered by myself and Const Norm Blaney.
Ads were placed in many newspapers.
Families, people who had befriended or met Charles were in touch.
He was registered at several local employment agencies who had found him work.
11 May 1989 - Charles sent his last letter home by fax from Roche Stationers in Kelowna re meeting up in Hong Kong his his 21st and Moms 40th Birthdays. This was the last communication home.
26 May 1989 - Charles cashed his pay cheque which he received from Flintstones Amusement Park, Kelowna at The Royal Bank in Orchard Park. This was the last confirmed sighting.
Charles had been camping at Tiny Town Trailer Park, Lakeshore Road, Kelowna and left his tent and personal belongings there.
An unconfirmed sighting was at The Live Wire Nightclub, Kelowna.
Charles has not been since alive since the Summer of 1989.
His beloved Nana passed away 2 years ago without knowing the fate of her only grandson.
I would be deeply grateful if you could include Charles name to the Highway of Tears website.

To Charles Horvath's Killer

Denise Allan, the mother of Charles Horvath who disappeared and
presumed murdered during his visit to Kelowna in 1989, has written a
poetic appeal to her son's killer.
Allan, who resides in England, has visited Kelowna on a regular basis -- making public appeals for the whereabouts of her son's body and ultimately to find Charles' killer.
Here is her appeal:
17 years of tears only 20 birthdays to remember - you took the rest
To the person or persons who know the fate of my son 'Charles' Karoly John Horvath-Allan - born August 21 1968
17 years without seeing his beautiful smile
17 years without feeling his warmth, his touch, his love
17 year without hearing his voice, his laughter, his sense of humour
Will you ever tell where you put him
Will we ever find the answer
Will you ever allow us to have closure
Never again to receive a 'Moms Day' card
Never again to hold him in my arms
Never again being able to say 'I am sorry'
Do you ever sleep at night
Do you have children of your own
Do you have a Mom
On Wednesday at 7.15 am the
21st day of August - the Summer of 1968
a baby boy - my son was born
One day in the Summer of 1989
you took away my only son my mom's only Grandson
a 20 year old young man from our lives
On the 17th day of August - the Summer of 1949 - I was born
my Mom - Charles' Nana gave me life
On Sunday the 9th of January 2006 - my Mom died
My Mom died after living in hope for nearly 17 years
that her beloved grandson 'Charles' would be found
Is this to my fate
never knowing where Charles' remains lie
PLEASE WON'T YOU TELL
PLEASE ALLOW US CLOSURE
PLEASE GIVE US PEACE

Hundreds search for boy missing from B.C. beach

Published: Saturday, February 16, 2008
VICTORIA - Hundreds of people continued to search Saturday but could
find no sign of seven-year-old William Pilkenton, the curly haired
youngster who vanished a day earlier from a Vancouver Island beach.
As time passed, residents could only hold on to the hope the child had wandered into the bush and hadn't been swept into the sea.
"People are getting concerned, I think," said John Fraser, mayor of
Tofino, B.C., the community from which William went missing.
"It hasn't been too bad, weather-wise. There was a short period of rain yesterday afternoon. It was dry last night but frosty. If he's on land, he's probably still OK, but if he's in the water, it's been a long time."
Hundreds of community volunteers have joined the search for the young boy who was visiting the area from Birmingham, Wash., with his family, said RCMP Const. Susan Boyes.
The ground search continued well past dark Saturday night and was scheduled to resume this morning.
The search initially focused on the waterfront and the forest areas near Duffin Cove, where the boy vanished around 10 a.m. Friday.
William and his father, David, were apparently walking along the rocky beach close to the bed and breakfast where they were staying when the father left his son for a short period of time
When he returned, William was missing. The distraught father called
the RCMP within 20 minutes and the search hasn't stopped since.
The pebbly beach was wet and extremely slippery due to recent rains, the RCMP said.
Commercial divers worked the shoreline throughout the night.
The mayor described the search as "full bore."
"There are helicopters. We've got one police dog and two search-and-rescue dogs now here this morning. There are boats on the water and planes in the air. There are hundreds of people looking."
Official search efforts included two RCMP boats, coast guard, and Department of Fisheries and Oceans vessels, a Canadian Forces Cormorant and a Buffalo aircraft from 442 Squadron in Comox, B.C.
An RCMP dog team arrived Friday night, and more search-and-rescue dogs came in Saturday morning. The RCMP helicopter was also in the air.
"We don't want to be too focused in one area, so land, water and air, we're searching it all," Boyes said.
William, who will be eight next month, is described as a friendly boy who loves the water and animals. He was wearing a red jacket with horizontal white stripes, and jeans. He suffers from attention deficit disorder, but had apparently taken his medication Friday.
Victim services support workers were staying in constant contact with William's parents, David and Camilla, giving them search updates, the RCMP said.
Duffin Cove opens to Templar Channel, which opens to the Pacific Ocean, and there are numerous small islands in the area.
"The search area is vast, both on the water and on land. The land search is both rocky shores and sand beaches and through both rural residential areas and dense forest," the RCMP said in a news release.
Steve Ironside, owner of the Water's Edge Inn, which is close to where the boy disappeared, said he heard shouting from members of the fire department and went to see if he could help.
"I just started looking around my place first. It's pretty dense rain forest and I personally fell in a big hole up to my waist," he said.
"It's thick and dense and gnarly and horribly wet."
Anyone near the water has to be aware of rogue waves at this time of year, Ironside said, particularly as the water is cold, between 7 C and 10 C.
All the searchers went through highs and lows throughout the day, Ironside said.
"We realize the horror of it, but people gather solace and comfort from each other. No one wants to give up hope."
Ram Tumuluri of the Cable Cove Inn said his whole family spent the day searching.
"I don't think anyone was working today, everyone was out looking for this kid. We're planning on heading out again (in the) morning," he said.
Like others, Tumuluri is hoping William is somewhere in the forest and not in the water.
"It's a small town. If he didn't fall into the water, we should be able to find him. We're hoping for the best."
