RCMP ask for help in solving 2007 disappearance

Sgt. Jack Poitras, a spokesperson with RCMP's K Division, says an investigator was recently speaking with Waquan's family, and is hoping reposting details of Waquan will help anyone familiar with the case remember any overlooked details.

"They were thinking there's no other way to help find closure to what happened," said Poitras. "When it's been this long and nothing has come up, it's good to bring the case back to the public's attention to see if anyone suddenly remembers something they overlooked before."
