    Lengthy detail..

    "Justin was last seen wearing blue jeans and a hooded sweatshirt while carrying a black backpack and skateboard. At the time, he was described as 5-foot-10 inches, 150 pounds with blue eyes and blond, Mohawk-style hair.

    Following the original investigation into the 2001 disappearance, the East Algoma detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police reopened the case in 2005. Officers searched an area on St. Joseph Island where Justin was last seen for four-and-a-half days, but the efforts turned up nothing significant enough to lead them to Justin.

    Police have also conducted many interviews and followed up on numerous alleged sightings, but, again, no clue has led them to Justin thus far.

    It has now been just more than eight years since the disappearance. Born Jan. 31, 1987, Justin turns 22 next month.

    People with information on the case are encouraged to call the Ontario Provincial Police at 1-888-310-1122."

    "Case of missing St. Joe teen parallels that of Barrie boy - No possessions of Justin Pollari have been found since he disappeared in 2001"

    "In Brandon's case, his bicycle was found near a wooded area, prompting a massive search that ended on Sunday. Microsoft, maker of the Xbox and the gameCall of Duty 4, with which Brandon is reported to have been obsessed, has matched a $25,000 reward for Brandon's return and has agreed to turn over information it has on the online gamers he might have come in contact with. Brandon's father has told reporters it was after the boy's Xbox privileges were taken away that he left home.

    Justin didn't leave a trace when he disappeared, but the circumstances of the two cases have their parallels.

    "(Justin) had done it a couple of times before -- (he and his father) got into an argument and he just went over to a friend's and he was back the next morning," said Karen Charpentier, Justin's grandmother.

    "But nothing has shown up, no clothing, not his backpack, no skateboard."

    Charpentier said she recalls the early days of Justin's disappearance were extremely difficult.

    "It's just constantly on your mind because you're looking and looking and looking and hoping."

    She said she knows what it must be like for Brandon's parents, Steve and Angelika Crisp, who are now dealing with the fact that the ground search has ended.

    "I don't know whether it gets worse after it's called off, because then (family members) are still looking and you're waiting and your mind can't think of too much else," said Charpentier. "Even now, for me, there's times I just sit and think about it and wonder 'Where is he? Why doesn't he call if he's alive?' "

    Justin would be in his late 20's now, if he is still alive, wonder how much taller he might have grown since age 14?
    Would he now have tattoos and his hair much darker?

    This link from 2005 refers to a tip...fwiw
    Also, some links say JP was 5' 9'' and had dyed hair, either black or blonde.
    He may have called himself ' J"


    http://www.trucknews.com/features/clear-shot-justin-please-phone-home

    "a gas station attendant in Saulte Ste. Marie who said he thought he saw Justin getting into a Quik X truck there.

    Apparently the sighting occurred around the time that Justin first disappeared"

    Bumping for Justin, sometimes known as " Woody."
    He has to be out there somewhere, maybe an avid skateboarder might recall seeing him back in 2001.

    Justin may still be in the local area or may have traveled to Sault Sainte-Marie, Ontario or Michigan area. He may dye his hair, his ears are pierced and was last known to have a mohawk. He may go by the nickname Joe."

    Bumping for Justin and hoping somebody might recognize him perhaps hanging around a truck stop or a skateboard park.

    I went to high school with Justin when he went missing. At the beginning there were a lot of rumors about what may have happened to him but nothing was ever answered. The police basically just treated this case as if he was a runaway other than following up on a few small leads.

    Just to clear one thing up, There is absolutely no way Justin is still in the Sault Ste. Marie, ON or MI area as it is just so small that there's no way he wouldn't have been spotted.

    A lot of locals believe he is no longer with us and is not a runaway.

    Hoping the family finally gets some answers some day.

    I have heard no rumors on this case, being a Canadian i have seen many trucks, flyers etc with this boys photo but not a whole lot of back ground or information. The lack of info in itself always seemed odd to me, in such a digital age normally the families home life is laid out for all to see , but this case you rarely even find mention of the parents names? Are you able to share some of the info you have heard speculated on? I have a tough time believing a 14 year old boy ran away to Toronto and by the age of 30 still hadnt reached out to a single family member or friend. I too believe he is deceased but would love to hear your insight as someone much closer to the story

    I've been doing my own investigation into Justin's disappearance, a citizen's brigade; for some reason I feel like I can find something in this case to help solve it. Sometimes ordinary, or even not-so-ordinary, people can sift out answers where police and investigators couldn't. Maybe I can help. You spoke of rumours... even rumours are a start when all else fails. I'd like to know what these rumours were, as much as you can recall.

    I'm also one to dabble in unconventional ways of investigating also, which I have been pursuing in Justin's case. I personally believe, and feel, that he is deceased and there are people on St. Joseph's Island and in the Soo who know exactly what happened to Justin and where they hid his remains. And I personally feel these "rumours" just might be the key in solving it. It might even be a case of an old girlfriend of a culprit who, after 17 years, has got a guilty conscience she wants to come clean about...
