Missing

Dozens of young, healthy men have mysteriously vanished in southwestern B.C. in recent years. Many of their families suspect the disappearances are connected--police say no.

Maybe the feet washing up on the shore have something to do with all these missing men?

The Vancouver police never seem to learn a valuable lesson.Never say never.They said that for years when all those women were going missing in vancouver hence we have Mr.Pickton the pig farmer/serial killer.

Ive been following this case (or cases) now for several months. I am so frustrated by the lack of information that I google several of these young mens names daily just to see if anything has changed.

I have never bought into the connectiom between the "feet" and the missing men, mostly because the police obviously have DNA samples of the missing men and they would be ruled out.

I am confused by this though. One of the first pairs of feet have been indentified, and the police are not at liberty to release the name because the family doesn't wish it to be released. (I understand this too - because they would be inundated with media following the "foot conspiracy" theories.) My question is. . . how often does this happen and is there possible resolution in some of the cases we follow just because the family is too traumitized by a positive id?

Thank you, thank you, thank you for moving this to this Forum.

I am not sure if there was not much activity because it was in a non-discussion forum, or because this is a Canadian case. . . however. . . there is definetly something going on and after reading all the posts from all the WS'ers here I know that you can help me sort through this.

I first started paying attention after reading about Johnny Kahler going missing.

http://www.nampn.org/cases/kahler_johnny.html

http://www.new.facebook.com/group.php?gid=5870884863

He reminds me so much of most of my male friends and I thought there is no way anyone overpowered this guy without leaving some trace.

Then I read about Derek Kelley and noticed the resemblance between the type of guy.

http://www.new.facebook.com/group.php?gid=10739479723

Then Kellen McElwee and. . . I read that Kellen's father was putting up a poster of his son when he noticed a poster for one of the two above and couldn't help but notice the resemblance.

How do so many young, healthy, BIG, strong young men just vanish? Most of them with absolutely no trace ever being found and in several cases their vehicles recovered with nothing. .. no evidence or direction for families or law enforcement.


http://www.new.facebook.com/group.php?gid=16538652799

There must be some sort of connection, but I don't blame the law enforcement for not admitting one. . . there is no evidence in any of these cases so how can a lack of evidence be called a connection.

I am in awe of the posters on websleuths ability to ferret out information and make connections. Would love to discuss this with some of you.

These families and if you look at other lists, many more in lower b.c. need answers as to where their sons went. I personally believe there must be a woman involved. It is the only way I can think that this men could all have been taken off guard without signs of scuffle.

I am a member of Derek Kelly is Missing on Facebook and received the following letter yesterday. It is heart wrenching to read, and cannot imagine what these people are gong through.

I am obsessed with these young men and what happened to them. I have considered email Derek or John Kahler's family and encouraging them to join here in their search. . . but I can't seem to drum up interest in it myself so I am not sure it would not be frutile for them.

I am pondering whether starting a thread under each man's name would be beneficial. . however since there are so many commonalities and a perceived connection perhaps it would only be confusing.

Here is the bullk of the letter. Derek has been missing just over 6 months.

"Sunday August 3rd would have been my brother Derek's 32nd birthday.

Tomorrow would have been a celebration with Derek, however my father & mother do not have their middle son to hug and love in person.

What us KELLY'S do have is a very strong family that will raise up a beer and cheers to the heavens for my brothers laugh and strong spirit lives among us each and everyday.

I will be celebrating the 31 & 1/2 years I had with D until he left for New Years Eve with her/him & them - to never been seen or heard from. She/he/they know what happened and where Derek is - their day will come as my faith in God is strong & I know justice will win out.

My son, D's nephew will write his special message to his Uncle D on a birthday balloon and we will head down to the beach , attach our kisses with it, and let it float up in the clear sky , as heaven for my 8 year old is "up there" and my son knows Uncle D will get his Happy Birthday message along with the special kisses.

Here's to my brother - DEREK KELLY - son, brother, uncle, grandson, brother-in-law, cousin and friend.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY D WE LOVE & MISS YOU !!!!

His sister,
Leeanne"

- A 25-year-old mystery regarding the disappearance of a Vancouver man following a boating accident in Porty Moody's Sasamat Lake has finally been solved, the BC Coroners Service reports.

Stefan Zahorujko's boat was found overturned in the lake on Jan. 5, 1987. The 65-year-old's fishing gear and personal effects were later discovered floating in the middle of the lake by rescue personnel.

"The similarities that I have noticed with the Missing Young Men of BC:

Healthy Good Looking Men

All have gone missing and no one has seen anything, no sign of a struggle.

No a trace of them has been found, no clothing, no wallets or identification

Many of the men have gone missing late at night, quite often after the bar has closed

Keeping in mind that there have been men that have gone missing that are older than 30 but look much younger"

Thanks so much for this link.
It is a gold mine of information - a database of missing persons in BC with photo, story and links of each person and sorted by year. Other categories include attempted abductions, high risk sex offenders, missing criminals and helpful links, among others.
I hope we can find a way to preserve this link.

Since all these men are capable and healthy strong and not likely overpowered my thinking is that it is a woman. If indeed there is a sk in that area. Would any of these men help a woman out if she needed a ride? I doubt they would pick up a man, but a woman in distress, probably.

I would imagine almost any man would offer to help a woman in ditress, but if that is the case why are there no bodies found? And again why has no one seen anything when these men went missing? Although people may have seen something and not even know it....another reason to have a provincial data base of all the missing linked to all the other provinces of missing people. There are a lot of other young men that have gone missing in very similar situations across Canada.

The Canadian Press

MONTREAL — The RCMP says a Quebec teenager who has been missing for three years may have been spotted in British Columbia.

The Mounties say they received a tip that David Fortin was seen playing a guitar in a Richmond supermarket in late January.

Fortin was 14 when he disappeared from the Quebec town of Alma in February 2009.

He left home in the morning to catch his school bus but he never made it".

Sorry 3 posts in a row, but imagine how wonderful if it is this missing young person!

Fortin is described as a Caucasian male, five feet eight inches, 165 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes.

Anyone that may have seen Fortin is asked to call the Richmond RCMP at 604-278-1212.

VANCOUVER - More than five years after a gruesome discovery of skeletal remains on a local beach, police are turning to technology to help them unravel a murder mystery"

"B.C. major crime Insp. Brendan Fitzpatrick said the man had a “primarily Caucasian kind of appearance,” but investigators can’t rule out if he was of “Middle Eastern or darker complexion” descent.

He said DNA data and dental records have been compared with national and international missing persons reports, with no matches".

http://www.globaltvbc.com/police+hope+marriage+of+science+and+art+will+solve +cold+case/6442590883/story.html


"
The body of the victim, who remains unidentified, was found on the shore of Tower Beach near UBC in October of 2006.

The death was deemed to be suspicious and the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team got involved.

It was determined the victim was a man between 25 and 45 years of age, between 5'5" and 5'9" in height and weighing 176 pounds.

He has a distinctive tattoo on his chest area, but only a portion of the tattoo was recognizable.

His race could
not be established due to the condition that his remains were in.
The analysis of the victim's DNA and fingerprints revealed nothing. The release of a composite sketch drawn by a forensic artist in 2007 also did not turn up any results.

Police say the body was found in a sleeping bag in the water and was in a bad state of decomposition. They can't say how long it was in the water for, but they do say the homicide likely took place in the Lower Mainland".

I wonder if the rate of suspicious missing men in BC (not sure how you would measure but I guess missing men/population of men) compares to other regions?

Has BC been lower than other regions and is now "catching up"? Or, is the missing rate now higher than average? Or perhaps people in this recent era are reporting them more often? IDK.

Of course, a higher than average rate would indicate something really wrong was going on.

This is where a Provincial run Central Data Base of all the Missing People by the Provinces all linked would help a lot. I know there are a few missing men from Alberta and Ontario that are the same age group and same circumstances as the Missing Men of BC. It's hard to see the similarites when the missing are all posted on different police Sites, plus there are many people missing that are not even posted on any Police Site. Some people make it in the media as big news and some missing people are just a quick blurb. I think a lot of it has to be if there is anything big going on in the media at the time.

" Police in Whistler, B.C., have confirmed that a discovery made by a couple Saturday "was in fact the remains of a human."

They say that the couple, who were out for a hike in a wooded area in the Alpine Meadows area, contacted the RCMP detachment in Whistler to report that they had discovered what they believed to be human remains.

In a statement, police said "investigators are unable to determine anything about the deceased that would aid in identification" and that "there is nothing thus far to indicate foul play."

The area off of 5th Avenue and Foothills Boulevard was cordoned off by RCMP and the serious crimes and forensic team were called out, confirming the remains were human, said Douglass.

There are other unsolved missing person cases in the northern B.C.

A 28-year-old Burns Lake man was last seen in December, and a 14-year-old man was last seen in Prince George in June 2007.

Magnotta Vancouver connection ‘should and will be looked at,’ say Montreal police
Police still don’t know what role Luka Magnotta played in Vancouver or if there is any connection between the accused grisly killer and any missing men ...

At least one gay man, Filipino Edgar Espiritu Leonardo, was murdered in 2003, during the time Magnotta is believed to have been in Vancouver, and among the unsolved missing men is international student Permadech Tatti, a Thai citizen.

I mentioned a few weeks ago in the Magnotta thread about him having done some porn films with a gay porn film company in Vancouver called streetbait.com. The thing that stood out to me at the time was that the plot of some of the streetbait films involved straight guys being picked up off the street by a guy or a guy and a woman:

Missing Man`s Wife Files Complaint
January 17, 2011

snipped...It has been almost two years since Wesley Foulds went missing, and last week his wife filed a formal complaint against the Abbotsford Police, who she claims have “dropped the ball” on the investigation.

Shelby Bernard is upset that her husband’s truck, found well off the route he should have been taking, and with his blood on the seats, has been repossessed. She thinks the police should have held it as evidence.

"The advanced decomposition of the body left investigators in the dark Monday as to the age, gender and identity of the victim, but suggests the person has likely been dead for some time."

I wish we could have a PI to follow every young man that falls in the parameter of these missing men...

Such a mystery!!

And... To me... I think there is so much evidence of connection that LE would have to prove they are NOT connected!

(Note: I respect LE.)

(And I realize a PI for every young man is not feasible.... :( )

Kellen is still missing 5 years later. His case reminds me a little of Matthew Huszar. Kellen disappeared without a trace after having dinner with friends. His car was later found just a few blocks from his home...

So 6 days after he went missing his car was found not too far away. Does that mean 1-5 days after he went missing it was not at that location? Also besides his home being so close by, what else was closer... A friends house? A store he went to? Was the car abandoned by strangers?

There's also the young man from England that vanished in the Vancouver area. He went on a day hike and didn't return, so the people he was staying with reported him missing. His father flew to Vancouver and made a plea, but returned to England to console his wife.

Has he been located?

Tom Billings, no he was not located. The belief is he went off hiking and was hurt or went in the water. Witnesses put him near Grouse Mountain, asking for directions if I recall...

http://www.am730.ca/syn/112/46808/modern-forensic-analysis-helps-confirm-identity-of-victim-in-2004-cold-case


The skeletal remains were discovered by a hiker in the mountains near North Vancouver in November 2004. For years, the police and coroners service tried to identify the victim with no luck.

But thanks to the use of a locally developed enhanced identification model and a hit on the BC Coroners Service DNA database, authorities now know the identity: 20-year-old Dante Ponzanetti was reported missing to Vancouver Police in June 2003.
