RCMP in Newfoundland and Labrador have issued a new appeal for public assistance in a missing persons case that went cold several years ago.

Yvonne King was last seen on Oct. 13, 2002, while she was walking on the main road in Fox Harbour, Placentia Bay.

On Monday, the RCMP issued a request for any details that could be related to King's disappearance.

"We wanted to get this story back out into the public eye," said Const. Laura Bemrose, who works with the RCMP's Placentia-Whitbourne detachment.

Vigil being held for 60 women and girls missing or killed

Much of the research was done through the national aboriginal Faceless Dolls project. In this province, the Faceless Dolls organizers decided to include all women because of the interconnections and ancestry, said Amelia Reimer, women’s outreach worker at the Native Friendship Centre.

It became an eye-opening experience to see the extent of the crimes, Reimer said.

The intent is to reveal as much as possible about who the victims were.

“A lot of people focus on the crime and what happened. We were really trying to focus on who they are in life before this happened,” Reimer said.

“These were living, breathing women before they became a statistic.”

Among them is Yvonne King, who in 2002 went missing on her 40th birthday while walking in Fox Harbour, Placentia Bay. She is remembered as being kind-hearted and an A student at Memorial University. Family members commented that her father died without ever knowing what happened to his beloved child.
