    Canada - Mihai Vornicu, Marie Olarte & Robert Dragoescu, Vancouver, 25 July 2016

    Search for B.C. couple missing 5 weeks expands to include friend

    RCMP are now linking the mysterious disappearance of a B.C. couple five weeks ago to the disappearance of a third person around the same time.
    Mihai Vornicu, 44, his wife, Marie Olarte, 58, and Robert Dragoescu, 32, were last seen together in the Mission/Maple Ridge area just before July 25, according to police.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Trio missing near Williams Lake as RCMP appeal for help

    Vornicu and Olarte were believed to have travelled from the Maple Ridge-area to Williams Lake, where their grey, 2005 V50 Volvo station wagon was found abandoned in late July/

    [...]

    That was one day before the abandoned Volvo was found, and police say Dragoescu, Vornicu and Olarte knew each other and were together in Metro Vancouver just before all three were last seen.

    Not getting good vibes here.

    RD's name, age, appearance, and ancestry appear to correspond to this person.

    Body found in the Maple Ridge area. Police confirm it is a missing 56 year old woman but have not released her identity yet: http://vancouversun.com/news/local-n...of-maple-ridge

    (I know it says above Marie is 58 but location seems to match where they were last seen--could this be her?)

    ...Vornicu has had trouble with police in the past. In 2012, he was found guilty of fraud, using a stolen credit card and making an instrument to forge credit cards. In 2013, he was charged with assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest, but pleaded guilty to a lesser charge. On land title documents, he*is listed as self-employed. He purchased a property in Horsefly in 2015.

    ...Robert Dragoescu, 32, is wanted in Calgary on "multiple warrants" dating back to 2012. During that time, Calgary police released photos of Dragoescu allegedly tampering with bank machines and skimming cards.

    Dragoescu was last seen with his friend and associate, 44-year-old Mihai Vornicu, and Vornicu's wife, 58-year-old Marie Olarte, in the Mission/Maple Ridge area just before July 25.

    ...An investigation into the disappearances is “ongoing,” an RCMP spokesperson replied in an email.

    Postmedia has learned that in the months before Vornicu disappeared, a Toronto Police Service disciplinary tribunal heard about his alleged connections to marijuana trafficking and a drug-related kidnapping.
