Just 10 months after Leah's murder, 19-year-old college student Lana Derrick disappeared from a gas station on Highway 16 in Thornhill.
Lana was a shy, bespectacled young forestry student who loved the outdoors and nature.
"She worked hard. She liked school," Sally Gibson said of her niece during an interview in the native town of Gitwangak.
On the first weekend of October, 1995, Lana made the 265-kilometre trek along Highway 16 to go to her mother's Thornhill house for the weekend.
The last known person she spoke to on Sat., Oct. 7, 1995 was a close friend, who said Lana told her around 3 a.m. that she was partying in town with some people she knew with a car.
Police said they had a surveillance video from a local gas station, where a clerk remembers Lana coming inside to buy cigarettes while a car with two men waited outside.
Lana's relatives in Terrace launched a search, but the police participated for only three days.
"All of a sudden we were told the time was up and they'd take it from there. But they didn't," said Gibson.
"They just didn't care. As far as I'm concerned, they still don't care," said a teary-eyed Gibson, who is also the aunt of victim Alberta Williams.
