    I sure hope Dave is found. Although he is driving a fairly popular car, the colour of it should be quite visible in any weather conditions. Still have my fingers crossed.

    You would think that car at least would stand out. But I don't think many people even know he's missing. The family needs more media coverage IMO.

    Dave Billings family and friends are pouring their hearts out on facebook. Dave has just disappeared.

    Family pleads for clues in disappearance of man
    It's been 68 days since Dave Billings seemingly vanished without a trace.
    Family and friends have no clue where he is. Tips from the public have failed to turn up any new information.
    "The family is really upset and torn apart by all of this," said Annette Slade, Billings' only sister.
    Now that milder temper-at u re s and March Break have arrived, Owen Sound police and Billings' loved ones are issuing another plea for people to be on the lookout for the 42-year-old Owen Sound man and his distinctive, burnt orange Toyota Yaris.

    Found Deceased

    http://www.owensoundsuntimes.com/Art...aspx?e=3517743

    The remains were found inside a burnt orange Toyota Yaris, which belonged to the 42-year-old man.

    Owen Sound police say the body has been taken to London for an autopsy and confirmation of identity. Foul play is not suspected.

    Four members of the OPP’s underwater search and recovery unit from Gravenhurst used a small boat and side-scan sonar system to search the Owen Sound Harbour for Billings’ body.

    He had been missing for 82 days.

    Billings’ fiancee Tracy Flood arrived shortly after the boat entered the water at about noon at the city’s west side boat launch.

    She and other family members watched for hours as the boat, pulling the sonar, idled back and forth along both sides of the harbour wall.
    Thoughts and prayers go out to Dave's friends and family...RIP
