Mansura Chaudhry is pleading for her son -- 25-year-old Asim has been missing for a year -- to get in touch.

Mansura Chaudhry is pleading for her son -- 25-year-old Asim has been missing for a year -- to get in touch.

The day Asim Chaudhry vanished a year ago, he packed his bag with clothes and left the textbook he was supposed to be studying on the dining room table.

"This kind of baffles me, too," his mom, Mansura Chaudhry, 53, said Thursday as she made an appeal for her son to come home.

"Everything can be worked out," she said. "All the stresses in life or anything moral or legal -- anything like that can be dealt with. It's not worth it. Life is too short."

Chaudhry, who was 24 when he went missing, hasn't been seen since last July 20 when he got on a SkyTrain at Production Way station.

"His friend took the SkyTrain from Production Way to New West and Asim boarded the SkyTrain, too," his mom said.

Earlier that day, he had written a short e-mail to a good friend saying he appreciated the friend's support and looked up to him, Mansura recalled. He told an older brother that he was going to Simon Fraser University that day. Chaudhry spent a lot of time at the school studying for a statistics course and working out at the gym.

In the days after Chaudhry's disappearance, family and friends made desperate calls to his cellphone, pleading with him to let them know he was safe.

"Everybody left messages -- nothing," Mansura said.

Mansura and her husband were going through a separation when Chaudhry disappeared, which Mansura acknowledges may have had an impact on her son.

"He did have some difficulties," she said.

Chaudhry graduated from Simon Fraser University in 2007 with a bachelor's degree in political science, but had not found work.

"He didn't have anything. That might have stressed him out," Mansura said. "Last year, he was talking about going to Korea for teaching, but that didn't pan out."

In the months before he disappeared, Chaudhry was reading "tons and tons of books," Mansura said.

"But the last book he was reading was a handbook on pessimism and that scared me a lot," she said.

When she confronted him, he brushed it off as nothing more than reading material.

The RCMP continues to investigate the disappearance.

Darlene Battistolo

Surrey BC

Family asks for public's help to find B.C. mother

Allison Cross, Vancouver Sun

Published: Tuesday, July 15, 2008

Vancouver Sun Surrey RCMP are asking for the public's help in finding a 44-year-old woman who has alarmed her family by dropping out of contact since she left for a camping trip nearly a month ago.

Darlene Battistolo left her Surrey home on June 22, telling her daughter she was going to visit her own mother in Oliver and go camping with a friend, police said.

Apart from a few text messages and some cellphone tower hits indicating she might be in Lillooet, then Cranbrook, Battistolo hasn't been heard from since.

She never showed up in Oliver. Surrey RCMP spokesman Sgt. Roger Morrow said police only appeal to the public for help in missing persons cases when the situation becomes desperate.

"We deal with about 2,200 missing people a year," he said. "That's about six a day. We don't actually do this often."

Battistolo hasn't used her bank account since she left, Morrow said, and was only carrying $500.

"She's got multiple sclerosis and we don't know if she's taking her [medication]," he said. "We don't know if she has any medication left."

Battistolo's daughter said the family has been coping with shock and stress over the past month. "We've lost a lot of sleep. This is completely out of her character for her," said Melissa Battistolo, 24. "She hasn't done anything like this before. She just abandoned her family."

Battistolo had recently split from her boyfriend of five years, Morrow said, but police don't think he is involved in her disappearance in any way.

"She did send her family some concerning text messages," he said. The breakup did have an emotional effect on her mother, Melissa said, but she never expected anything like this to happen.

"To everyone, she appeared fine and rational," she said. Her mother may be camping alone in a rural area, Melissa said, because she took all of the family's camping gear.

Morrow said Battistolo can call any police department in Canada to let them know she's safe. Battistolo is Caucasian, with long brown hair and hazel eyes. She is five foot three inches tall and weighs about 110 pounds.

She left driving a 1993 black Honda Civic with licence plate number 932 FLH. Anyone with information about her whereabouts is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP missing persons unit at 604-599-0502.

Desmond Peter

Cowichan Valley, B.C

Peter's family begs for info

Sarah Simpson, The Citizen

Published: Wednesday, November 05, 2008

One year and eight months after Duncan teen Desmond Peter went missing, his family is again pleading for his return, and there is now a $20,000 reward for information leading to his whereabouts.

Peter, who will turn 16 years old on Nov. 15, has not been seen since March 12, 2007.

"I love you son, I just want you home," pleaded his mom Elizabeth Louie during a press conference Monday at noon.

Desmond's mother Elizabeth Louie shows a photo collage of her son's younger years.

"I miss you so much. All I want is you home. There is nothing that we can't work through. I just want you home. I'm not mad at you, I love you, you mean the whole world to me and my world is falling apart without you," she said. "All I need is you to come home and then everything will feel complete."

North Cowichan/ Duncan RCMP investigators, with the assistance of the Missing Children Society of Canada, have conducted an extensive investigation into his disappearance.

"Desmond's family remains desperate to find out any information about his whereabouts to make sure that he is safe and they are looking for some contact with him," said Cst. Darren Lagan.

Interviews with the boy's family, friends and associates have sustained no real leads.

"I think to say that we've had little to no concrete evidence would be right on the money," admitted Lagan.

But Peter's family isn't giving up.

"We all really miss you and it's been really hard watching our house fall apart," said Donna Louie, the boy's grandmother. "It's hard and we want you to know that the door is always open. Please call and let us know that you are okay. That's what we need to know. We need to know that you're safe."

But for whatever reason, it appears Peter may not want to be found -- perhaps going so far as to use an alias.

"I want to make it very clear that Desmond is not in trouble with the police," said Lagan. "He has no reason to fear the police or fear that the police know where he is."

Being a minor, RCMP officers are just looking to ensure Peter is fed, clothed and sheltered sufficiently.

"We also need to give closure to the family," said Lagan. "Something that will help them beyond the state they've had for the last one year and eight months, which is not knowing where Desmond is, and if Desmond is safe."

Cowichan Tribes Chief Lydia Hwitsum wants the greater community to offer its full support.

"I wanted to take the opportunity to plead with the First Nations community, the boriginal community to come forward with any information at all, just to ensure that Desmond is safe and to bring some relief to his family," she said at the press conference. "Your family loves you and they are making extraordinary efforts to try and find you and to ensure that you're safe."

To encourage public support, and to bring forth information needed by Peter's family, the Missing Children Society of Canada is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the whereabouts of Desmond, said Lagan.

A private reward of $10,000 is also being considered.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Desmond Peter is urged to contact the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at (250) 748-5522, CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or the Missing Children Society of Canada at 1-800-661-6160.

Or for Desmond, just call home, a friend or somebody else you trust that can relay to your family that you are safe.

100 Mile House Free Press

Feb. 22 marked one year since Dennis Cornish went missing, when he was last seen purchasing fuel for his light brown/tan 1995 GMC pick-up truck at Race Trac gas at the 108.

Since his disappearance, 629 members have joined the Facebook group, showing high interest in the case.

Cpl. Lorne Wood is heading the Cornish case, which he says is progressing. He reminds those with information to contact the North District RCMP Major Crimes Unit or Crime Stoppers.

In response to this somber anniversary, his parents released the following statement last week:

It is now a year since our son, Dennis went missing. We know he is no longer with us. That is the focus of the RCMP investigation. Our family does not know how and why he died. The most important thing for us is finding his body. Not a day goes by that we don’t think of him. We can’t find peace and move on until we have his remains and give him a proper burial.

We are open to all suggestions as to where Dennis might be. If you have any leads contact our family friend Ken at  or the RCMP.

Michael James Bosma

Missing in Kelowna
Have You Seen Mike?

Police look for public’s help once again on two year anniversary of Michael Bosma’s disappearance
Kelowna, BC: On January 9th, 2006, then 26-year-old Michael James Bosma was last seen by staff at a local transition house during the evening of January 9th, when he left at approximately 9:00pm. This transition house was his residence at the time. His last known movements were sometime during January 10th at the Chevron Gas Station on the corner of Pandosy Street and Harvey Avenue. Since that time, Police have received few tips, all of which were followed up without success.
To coincide with this somber anniversary, Police are now asking the Public to come forward if they can recall anything at all in relation to Michael Bosma’s whereabouts during that time period in January of 2006. Understandably, Michael’s parents are seeking answers in their son’s disappearance and miss him very much.
Michael Bosma, at the time of his disappearance, was described as a Caucasian male, 6"1, 270 lbs, with dirty blond hair, blue eyes, wearing glasses.
Anyone with any information about Michael’s whereabouts are asked to contact the Kelowna RCMP at (250)762-3300 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.


Mike Bosma has been missing since Monday January 9, 2006, and his parents are worried.

Mike is 25 years old, 6'1", 270 pounds, with dirty blonde hair and glasses. He was last seen wearing blue jeans and a black down filled jacket. 
Mike, 25 suffers from schizophrenia. He was recently hospitalized, and since then was staying at a local transition house.
Mike hasn't had medication since he went missing, and his father, John Bosma says "he will be very confused - disoriented and confused, not violent or anything like that."
He was last known to be in Jammer's Cold Beer and Liquor Store on Highway 97 sometime Tuesday where he used a debit card.
If you have seen Mike Bosma, call 470-3872, or Kelowna RCMP.

Mike's Aunty Nellie wrote
Our hearts are aching for Len and Anneke Scholte's (my sister's) grandson who went missing on Jan. 9th.  He does have a mental problem, but this is totally out of his character. He walked away from his care home at 9:30 PM and has not been seen since.

He has no ID as he left his room as if he would return soon. This is now 3 weeks and after intensive searches of the rivers by divers and helicopters etc.  in Kelowna, no sign of life. His parents are in turmoil as my whole family is.

He has not used his bank card since the 10th.

Please pray for Mike. At this time it is the most we can do

Kelowna News January 20, 2006
Every day he’s gone, Michael Bosma’s condition will get worse. Every day he’s gone brings him more confusion and disorientation.
Every day he’s gone wears on family who miss him so.
John and Wendy Bosma told reporters Thursday that they believe their 26-year-old son could be just about anywhere.
He has been missing since he walked out of a transition home for people with mental disorders on Monday, Jan. 9.
The 6-foot-one, 270-lb man suffers from schizophrenia and is coming off a break down.
Without his medication, his parents can only guess at his current condition.
“He will be confused, disoriented,” Wendy said.
“He is not dangerous or anything but when you’re disoriented you can do anything that can cause a chain reaction of other things.”
He wouldn’t hurt himself or others, she says, but schizophrenia is a thought-disorder that could lead him into any situation.
He was diagnosed at age 19, but at times since then Bosma has led a very regular life.
He has friends, had his own apartment and even attended college for a time. The stresses of exams last fall led to a break down that landed him in hospital.
He was staying at Coral House when he walked out around 9 a.m.
He was due for his medication at 11:30 p.m. but never showed up.
No one from the home contacted the Bosma’s until the following morning.
“I was surprised by that,” Wendy said.
“If he was staying at our house and he wasn’t back, we would have been out there to look for him.”
He removed some money from a bank account at a Chevron station at Pandosy Street and Harvey Avenue Tuesday morning but from there seems to have vanished with very little cash and no identification.
Police have issued a Canada-wide warrant for his detention under a mental health warrant.
At first, Wendy figured he might be at the mall, where it is warm.
She thought maybe a movie theatre or Internet cafe or sipping a coffee at Tim Horton’s, his favourite.
She has even gotten tips from some people but none of them have panned out.
He’s hitch-hiked in the past, and he’s clean cut so perhaps someone gave him a ride.
The Bosma’s have to rely on people who might have seen him because it’s less likely that he will see the dozens of missing person notices, newspaper articles or radio and television messages.
Wendy, John, his two brothers just want him back
“Mike, come home,” Wendy says.
“We love you and miss you and are waiting for you to come and live with us again.”

Patrick Ratto

Burnaby BC

Have you seen this man? Debra Dorey and her family certainly hope so. Dorey’s husband Patrick Ratto has been missing since July 25. Ratto left his job at Teradici, a tech business in Burnaby, on the afternoon of July 25 and has not been seen or heard from since.

The couple lived in Gibsons for a little over three years, moving to Burnaby in 2004 due to work commitments. The couple had plans to return to the Coast one day, which is why Dorey figures Ratto may be or may have been on the Coast.

“We know he took out $60 from the ATM on July 25. He didn’t have much more money than that, and none of his credit cards have been used,” she said during an interview with Coast Reporter last Friday while on the Coast.

“He didn’t have a lot of money so we figure if he did go somewhere it would have to be somewhere quick. You can hop on a ferry pretty quickly.”

To that end, Dorey has received assistance from BC Ferries that plans to distribute missing persons posters to all their staff and on all their vessels.

“Right from the start we’ve searched all over Burnaby, Burnaby Lake, Vancouver — everywhere,” she said. “I hired a private detective and a dog team has searched all over Burnaby Lake. We have one tip that came in to police that he may have been seen on July 26 around Burnaby Lake, but other than that, the police have no leads.”

Dorey said Ratto’s disappearance is puzzling, as it is totally out of character for him.

“I knew it was bad right from the start,” she said. “I know Patrick. We’ve been married for 13 years and I’ve lived with him for 14. He’s never done anything like this before. He left work that day at 1:30 p.m. and that’s it. No one has seen him since.”

Given the time that has passed, Dorey has come to the conclusion that he is probably dead, but she said family and friends need to find out what happened to provide some closure.

“It’s very hard to move forward. We need to resolve this so we can move on,” she said.

Ratto, age 43, is 6’2”, weighs 175 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. He was wearing a removable black splint after he was injured while on a motorcycling excursion a short while before his disappearance. When he went missing, he was wearing jeans, a beige T-shirt, sunglasses and white running shoes and carrying a black backpack and black jacket with white markings.

If you have any information or think you may have seen Ratto, call Burnaby RCMP Cpl. Scott Baker at 1-604-294-7827 or Sunshine Coast RCMP at 604-885-2266.

Lindsey Nicholls

Since Aug. 2, 1993
1-Lindsey at 14yrs. 2-Age Composite 21yrs.

Vancouver, British Columbia – Over 15 years ago a young Vancouver Island girl disappeared without a trace. On her 30th birthday RCMP investigators are once again asking for the public’s help to locate her.

 On August 2, 1993 Lindsey Nicholls, a 14 year old Comox Valley resident was on her way to visit friends when she vanished. A witness last saw Lindsey walking east on Royston Road from her temporary foster home towards Courtenay at 10:30 am. At the time Lindsey was 160 cm (5’ 3”) and weighted 51 kgs (113) with long blond hair and green eyes. She was wearing blue jeans, white shoes, a khaki silk top and a blue and pink checked shirt.

“For the RCMP this remains a very active investigation,” explains Sgt Tim Shields, E Division Strategic Communications. “While it has been over 15 years since Lindsey was last seen, we are continually looking for new information and clues that can help us determine what happened.”

To date hundreds of tips have been forwarded to the police. These include possible sightings though they have never been substantiated. Investigators are asking anyone who may have information regarding Lindsey and her disappearance to contact the proper authorities.

“No matter how insignificant a piece of information may seem, it may be that one piece that investigators need to fit everything else together,” Lindsey NICHOLLS Missing Poster
explains Sgt. Shields. “Over the past 15 years technology and police investigative techniques have evolved and improved so that we are in a position to do things now, that we could not do in the past. I ask that anyone who may think they know something to pass that information along. Let the police determine if it is valuable, and lets work together to solve Lindsey’s mystery.”

Anyone who has information is asked to call the Comox Valley RCMP at (250) 338-1321 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Message below from Judy which is at her website....

Although I can’t help being hopeful that Lindsey may still be alive and well, my search for answers has convinced me that the need for a national Missing Person and Found Remains databank is urgent.
I have encountered people across Canada who are working hard to make this databank a reality. These people work for organizations searching for missing people, trying to identify remains, fighting violent crime or helping victims of crime. These are the front line people who understand how important and valuable this tool could be.
I believe that Canadians will be as shocked as I was when I realized I could not provide my own DNA sample to be placed in a national databank. If Lindsey had met with foul play, she could be identified through my DNA. My hope was that once she was identified, the murderer would be caught. There are over 6,000 unidentified DNA profiles in the National Crime Scene index. A large number of these samples are undoubtedly victims - victims that could be identified through DNA.
So you see, this legislation is not just about finding missing loved ones. This legislation will link victims to crime scenes and give the police the information they need to investigate crimes and keep violent criminals off the street.
If you take the time to read some of the articles in the archive section of this website, you will see that the campaign for this legislation is gaining momentum. The legislation, Bill C279 (affectionately known as Lindsey’s Law), was tabled as a private member’s bill.
I have taken this as far as I can – I am now asking for your help. The next step is to let your Member of Parliament know that you support this legislation. One of the best ways to make sure they are aware of the bill is to ask them specifically how they plan to vote and why.

Expand DNA data bank The Ottawa Citizen Tuesday, May 24, 2005

As the mother of Lindsey Nicholls, a teen who has been missing since 1993, I have been lobbying the federal government for several years to include a missing-person and unidentified-human-remains index in the current DNA databank.
A public consultation process has been launched, as the government is asking Canadians about this issue to shape public policy.
The deadline is June 30. I am asking people to visit my website, , if they have decided to support this effort to change the law. I hope they will also forward this information to friends and family across Canada.
I was shocked to learn that Canada does not have a missing-person and found-human-remains index in its national database.
How can the government justify sending forensic experts to Asia during the recent tsunami disaster to identify those dead and missing when it refuses to identify hundreds of human remains found right here in Canada?
I was recently in Ottawa, where I was invited to give a presentation to the public consultation committee. During a tour of the National DNA databank facility, I saw the state-of-the-art facilities and software systems that were developed to handle this change in policy.
All they need to do is turn it on.
I believe that we can influence the outcome and I hope people will take a few minutes to add their voices to mine. I want to flood them with responses so that they will have no excuse for dragging their feet any longer.
The specific request should be made that the missing-person databank be made national and be compared to the crime-scene index in order to identify victims and serial offenders.
I deserve to know if Lindsey's remains have been found but not identified. Perhaps her DNA is sitting unidentified in a crime-scene index.

Student missing after possible street-racing mishap

Surrey teen fails to come home after alleged accident

Raina Delisle, The Province

Published: Wednesday, June 21, 2006

A Surrey family is fearing the worst after an honour-roll student who may have fallen in with the wrong crowd didn't make it home after a fender-bender on Saturday night.

Gaganpreet Suveen Sandhar, 17, smashed up his father's 2001 Toyota Corolla at about 11 p.m. in a possible street-racing accident near 170th Street and 82nd Avenue in Surrey, Gaganpreet's sister, Randeep, said yesterday.

The teen and the car are missing.

Gaganpreet -- a graduating North Surrey Secondary student -- was hanging out with about half a dozen teens who are "a bad influence," Randeep said.

She described her brother as a "quiet guy" who doesn't drink or do drugs and only recently started staying out late on weekends.

"This is very out of character," she said. "He's been changing over the past few months, but he's a good kid and has kept up with his school work.

"I have no idea why my brother was hanging out with those guys."

After the accident, the group drove to the McDonald's restaurant at 156th Street and Fraser Highway in Fleetwood, according to Randeep, who spoke to the teens.

They told her about the street racing and said Gaganpreet left at about 1:30 a.m. At 2:15 a.m. he called a friend on his cellphone and said: "I'm home now, don't worry about me," Randeep said.

He wasn't home in the morning.

"Even if he was going to be home from school five minutes late, he would call," said Randeep, who reported her brother missing at 4 p.m. Sunday.

She couldn't report it earlier because police said not enough time had elapsed.

Surrey RCMP Cpl. Roger Morrow said police are "working very diligently" to find Gaganpreet.

Family members have flown in from Indiana and Toronto to offer help and support to the Sandhars.

Randeep was at her brother's school yesterday, putting up posters and urging his classmates to come forward with any information.

"There's been no tips, no clues, no leads, absolutely nothing," Randeep said.

"We're totally freaked out."

Gaganpreet's graduation ceremony was last Thursday; his provincial exams are next week.

Gaganpreet is six feet one inch tall, 215 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. He was wearing blue jeans and a black summer jacket.

Manvir "Munny" Sidhu

Abbotsford BC

There is still no news regarding Manvir "Munny" Sidhu, a 17-year-old Abbotsford Grade 12 student who went to bed at 10:30 p.m. on March 30, 2006. He hasn't been seen since.

"We believe there are people out there with information regarding his disappearance," Abbotsford Police Const. Vinet said last year, on the one-year anniversary of Munny's disappearance.

"We're urging those people to come forward."

Son's disappearance haunts family
Every time a body is found, Sidhu family wonders if it's Manvir's
Glenda Luymes, The Province Published: Monday, April 02, 2007

Every time he hears police have found a body, A.J. Sidhu wonders whether it's his younger brother.

"My heart sinks," he said yesterday.

"I just want police to hurry up and do the autopsy and find out if it's him. When it's not, we wait for the next body."

It has been one year since A.J.'s brother, Manvir "Munny" Sidhu, disappeared from his family's home in Abbotsford.

The 17-year-old Mouat Secondary school student was last seen going to his second-floor bedroom on the night of March 30, 2006. The next morning his mother found his bed empty, his bedroom window open.

Since then, the Sidhu family has been caught in an "in-between place," said A.J.

When Abbotsford police investigators call with questions about Manvir, the family fears the worst.

A news story about the discovery of an unidentified body sends the household into a "frenzy" -- until they find out it is not the teen.

"Not knowing just kills a person," said A.J.

The Sidhu family has received no new information from police, who at the time of Manvir's disappearance confirmed the teen got along well with his parents and, to their knowledge, wasn't involved in any criminal activity.

There are few clues in the case.

Manvir's wallet and passport were found in his bedroom the morning after he disappeared.

His cellphone was gone and a friend received a text message saying Manvir was travelling to India with a woman. A.J. doubts the authenticity of the message.

Two weeks after Manvir disappeared, police said he was spotted in a surveillance video taken from Abbotsford airport.

He picked up another man at the main terminal and left.

"For the first week we felt like things were happening, but we haven't heard anything since then. It's been a really difficult year,"

said A.J.

Yesterday, Abbotsford police confirmed they are still investigating Manvir's disappearance.

A.J. said the constant waiting has taken a huge toll on his parents.

"They try to keep busy, but this has aged them five years in one," he said.

A.J., a rapper, deals with his brother's disappearance in his music and the 28-year-old has had his younger brother's name tattooed on his back.

"I miss hanging out with him. I miss having him at my side. Instead, I wonder if he's still alive," he said. "I think the chances are 50-50."

To mark the one-year anniversary of the day he disappeared, family and friends gathered at the Sidhu home yesterday to pray for Manvir.

"My biggest hope is that he'll return home safely and alive," said A.J. "But if he's still on this Earth or if he's not, I know the man upstairs is with him."

If Manvir is alive, his family is hoping the teen will contact them.

"If he's out there and he feels guilty for not coming home, he needs to know we'll forgive him 110 per cent. We love him and all we want is to have him back. We don't want to go through another year like this," said A.J.

Anyone with information is asked to call Abbotsford police or the

Sidhu family at 604-859-2313.

Derek Kelly missing person case now treated as a homicide

100 MILE HOUSE, B.C. – RCMP said on Friday that a two-year-old missing person case in the B.C. Interior is now being investigated as a homicide.

Derek Kelly, 31, of Langley, was last seen at a New Year's Eve party in the area of Bridge Lake and Highway 24, near 100 Mile House, on Jan.1, 2008.

Although classified as a missing persons file, the matter is being treated as a homicide, the RCMP said, in a news release Friday.

RCMP spokesman Cpl. Dan Moskaluk no charges have been laid in connection with the homicide of Kelly.

He said in the spring of 2008, investigators searched a property in the area and found "valuable evidence" that has advanced the case.

"We have also identified several potential witnesses who have been approached by investigators, but for unknown reasons, have to date been reluctant to cooperate with police," he said

"The investigators are confident in saying that the outstanding witness evidence could very well unlock the puzzle."

Missing Man: Family desperate for word

By Monique Tamminga - Langley Times - May 16, 2008

Five months after he went missing, the family of a Langley man still haven’t given up hope.

Derek Kelly went missing in the Cariboo on New Year’s Eve, and hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

Leanne Kelly said her 31-year-old brother Derek, who goes by the name “D,” had been working in Port Hardy on construction when he made the trip to the Cariboo Dec. 30 with a new girlfriend and some friends and acquaintances.

Leanne said there were at least four and perhaps as many as eight in the party.

Those friends returned to the Lower Mainland without Derek and didn’t notify the authorities or his family that he was missing.

On Jan. 16, the family in Langley reported him missing to the RCMP; the detachment’s serious crime unit has conducted an extensive investigation but has not been able to locate him.

Leanne said her family members are all anxious to know what has happened to Derek. “He is loved and missed by all our family and friends,” said Leanne.

Meanwhile, a memorial cross has been demolished and missing person posters have been ripped down at Bridge Lake, near 100 Mile House, where Derek was last seen.

The memorial was erected by Leanne, who said she put up the cross March 29 on Highway 24 with a rosary and a guiding light stone, to help her family find some peace.

Sometime between April 24 and 26 that cross was demolished and spread over the ditch.

Leanne said she wonders if this was random violence or if the cross and posters are reminding someone in the Bridge Lake area that Derek is missing.

“For me personally, it’s a little suspect,” said Leanne.

The investigation has been turned over to the North District Major Crimes Unit.

Langley RCMP investigators were up in 100 Mile House several weeks ago, and a decision was made to let the area police division lead the case.

“It’s difficult to conduct an investigation from that distance,” said Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Peter Thiessen.

“Combine that with the complexity of the investigation and the different directions it may be going, it requires the North District Major Crimes to take over the file.”

Thiessen wouldn’t release what direction it has taken or whether there have been new leads.

The family is asking that seasonal residents opening up cabins have a good look around their property for any sign of Derek. A family search for him will take place once the snow has melted. To help in the search or find out more go to Facebook and search ‘Derek Kelly Missing.’

He is described as 32 years old, 5’11, 170 pounds, with short dark brown hair and blue eyes.

He has Celtic tattoos on his upper shoulders and back, a Libra lion on the centre of his chest and an “Irish Pride” script tattoo on his inner right forearm.

He was last seen wearing a black hoodie with silver or grey markings, jeans and black Adidas runners.

Anyone who may have seen Derek or have information about him is asked to call the RCMP or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

He is one of a growing number of young, muscular tattooed white men who have gone missing in the past while.

Burnaby resident Kellen McElwee went missing from the Walnut Grove Keg restaurant on March 19 and hasn’t been seen since. His parents have put up a $50,000 reward for his safe return. His family and police have heard nothing and the reward expires at the end of May.

Langley resident Johnny Kahler went missing on Nov. 4 while partying and driving his 4X4 truck in the Stave Lake area of Mission. His truck was found stuck in the mud with the motor still running. Despite hundreds of people partying that night and a huge search for him the next day, he hasn’t been found.

Teens from Mission and Burnaby have also gone missing over the past 12 months.
