    Government moves ahead and that no timelines can be set because committee’s set their own agendas.
    “My son has been missing for over two years. We have DNA samples that could be compared to found articles of clothing but without a national DNA bank and missing person’s index, how can we know for sure that no stone has been left un-turned.” commented Donna Dixon, mother of Billy Mason, “We need this Conservative Government to show leadership and bring this forward instead of hoping somebody else will do the work.”
    Mr. Marston added “We’re launching this postcard campaign to involve others in the community in this fight. Last fall we gathered over 6600 signatures to a petition – we’re hoping to get as many postcards signed to deliver to the Prime Minister. Harper and his government cannot continue to ignore the need for this important tool. “

    At a time when scientific and technological advances have catapulted police work into a whole new realm, the method used in Canada to search for missing people hasn't changed much in decades. It's a patchwork process involving e-mails, fingerprints, dental records and a lot of luck.
    Donna Dixon says that's not good enough.
    Her son Billy has been gone since Feb. 22, 2006. He was 27. A dad.
    His was a simple missing person case at first. Then police found a witness who saw Billy being marched out of his Main Street East apartment at gunpoint. It's a homicide investigation now.
    Detectives took a winter coat and a pair of boots from Billy's apartment. There's a good chance some of his DNA appears somewhere on those items.
    Detective Mike Maloney wanted to send the clothes to Toronto's Centre of Forensic Sciences to have a DNA profile done of Billy. He wanted it for two reasons: to have a profile that could be compared quickly and accurately with bodies discovered across the country and to ensure Billy's DNA is properly stored.

    Donna Dixon has asked the Police Services Board to increase the reward for solving the disappearance and murder of her son nearly three years ago.
    Billy Mason's body has never been found. His case went from being a missing person investigation to a homicide after a witness reported seeing Billy marched out of his apartment at gunpoint.
    Donna is convinced someone knows what happened to Billy. And maybe, with enough enticement, they will come forward.
    "But $10,000 nowadays means nothing," Donna says.
    In Donna's case, the $10,000 reward isn't even coming entirely from police. Nearly half -- $4,800 -- was raised by Donna herself.

    Billy Mason and Paul-Michael Foster never met.

    But their families have been drawn together in their quests to bring these well-loved men home and find out what happened the nights they disappeared.

    Last night Mason's family marked four years since his disappearance with a vigil outside the east-end apartment building from which he disappeared.

    Four months after his disappearance, police launched a homicide investigation after a witness said he was taken at gunpoint. He was 27 and the father of a now 11-year-old daughter.
    Both men disappeared without a word, without jackets and leaving behind people and items they never would have willingly abandoned.

    Foster had laundry going; Mason left without the hat he was reluctant to ever take off.

    When Dixon read about Foster's disappearance, too many things reminded her of her son's story. Both have blond hair, blue eyes and dragon tattoos.

    "It was just like I was reading Billy all over again," she said.

    Police have charged a 34 year old with the kidnapping and murder of Billy Mason. Jeremy William Hall appears in Hamilton court today. Another man has been charged with accessory after the fact.
    I am looking for a link to the press conference.
