    Canada - Jesokah Adkens, 17, Sooke, BC, 26 Sep 2001

    I didn't find a thread here for Jesokah so thought I would start one. I don't recall hearing about this case in the media at the time and it certainly seems like foul play was involved. Let's help Jesokah's family find out what happened so they don't have to wonder.

    Here is Jesokah's missing kids link and specifics:

    Missing Since: Sep 26, 2001
    Missing From: Sooke, Canada
    DOB: May 1, 1984
    Age Now: 29
    Sex: Female
    Hair Color: Blonde
    Eye Color: Blue
    Height: 5'5"
    Weight: 110 lbs

    Jesokah was last seen at around 21:30 as she was going to take a bus back to the village of Sooke.


    Here is the link from The Doe Network:

    On September 26th, 2001 at approximately 9:30 pm, Jesokah Adkens was seen standing at a bus stop near Saseenos Elementary School in Sooke, BC. She was believed to be on her way home to feed her dog. Jesokah was never seen again. On September 29th, 2001, Jocelan Adkens, Jesokah's mother, reported her missing to the local Sooke RCMP Detachment.

    Though Jesokah did not live with Clayten and Jocelan Adkens (mother and father), it was very unusual for her not to have contact with them or her brothers. At the time of her disappearance Jesokah was residing in the Sooke area with a roommate. She was 17 years old and was attending school at Edward Milne Secondary.

    She was a very social person and was well known throughout the Sooke and Port Renfrew communities. She associated with people from all walks of life and she hitchhiked regularly from points anywhere between Port Renfrew, Sooke and Victoria. The Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit considers Jesokah's disappearance suspicious and says foul play cannot be ruled out.

    Here is some info from the media...

    The blond, blue-eyed 17-year-old was last seen at the bus stop about 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 26, 2001. She had left a friend's place and was headed to the house she shared with a roommate about two kilometres away in the village of Sooke.

    Jesokah Adkens was never seen again.

    Police and her parents immediately suspected foul play. The Edward Milne Community School student left her knapsack and identification at her house, as well as her beloved German shepherd pup, Daphne.

    "I think it's pretty obvious," said Clayten Adkens, Jesokah's father.

    The RCMP called in reinforcements, a tracking dog, a helicopter and a dive team to assist with the search, but never found any sign of the slight teenager, who weighed 110 pounds and stood five feet five inches tall. She was last seen wearing a black pullover jacket, blue jeans, black running shoes and a Doors T-shirt.

    Heck, she left her beloved puppy behind. That isn't right. What happened to Jesokah? She stood beside a busy road and didn't make it home. She was a slightly built teen, who was likely grabbed. Why hasn't this case had more attention?
