Over the last nine months there have been numerous searches in the effort to find Ryan. These have included both ground searches (some using search dogs) and air searches. There have been many more searches, by many more people, than I have ever seen on any other missing persons case in all the years I've been doing this. Imo that can be attributed to the fact that his family has been  relentless in making sure that his face and name stay in the public eye, and that he is not forgotten.

All efforts have failed to turn up a trace of Ryan.

He remains missing.

John Doe is pictured below.

I certainly hope someone recognizes him. He probably has family/friends who are missing him.

Police say Ibrahim Ali, who arrived in the country 17 months ago as a refugee from Syria, was arrested in Burnaby on Sept. 7.

There really needs to be a proper vetting process for refugees.

I totally agree Sap. Who is living among us?

Date scheduled for Travis Vader’s appeal of manslaughter convictions
By Jennifer Henderson  Aug 22, 2018


A court date has been set for the appeal of Travis Vader’s manslaughter convictions in the deaths of two St. Albert seniors.

Vader, who is currently serving a life sentence in the deaths of Lyle and Marie McCann, is slated to come before the Court of Appeal of Alberta on Nov. 28.

Vader was convicted of manslaughter in the deaths of the senior couple in 2016.

The criminal trial of the disappearance and deaths of the McCanns spanned six years and was finally wrapped up with a life sentence on Sept. 15, 2016.

The McCanns were last seen filling their motorhome with gas in St. Albert on July 3, 2010, before setting off on a planned trip to visit with family and camp on the West Coast. Their burned-out motorhome was found near Minnow Lake campground, southeast of Edson, two days later.

Their bodies have never been recovered.

Vader was originally convicted of second-degree murder by Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Denny Thomas in the deaths of the McCann couple. Thomas relied on a section of the Criminal Code, which had been deemed unconstitutional by the courts 26 years earlier. The verdict was eventually substituted for two counts of manslaughter.

Vader was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for seven years.

In January 2017, Vader’s defence lawyer, Brian Beresh, filed the documents for an appeal, stating that Vader is looking for a stay of proceedings on the sentence or an acquittal. If the matter was to go to trial again, Vader would request his case be heard by a judge and jury.

Yes, I'm still safe eyes :). Thank you for thinking of me.

I would absolutely evacuate if I was told to. I have a few things ready if that were to become the case. Vehicle gassed up and ready also. 

Keep yourself safe in Ontario too.

I am still ok here SAP. Thanks for thinking of me.

There are many evacuation alerts and orders, in place in BC, however the alert that was very close to where I live (other side of the river) has now been lifted. It is extremely smoky and was almost pitch black here today at 2:00 PM.  Thankfully that didn't last long. It is still very hazy, but not as dark now.

My thoughts are with all those who are displaced, and with those fighting tirelessly to battle the fires. May everyone stay safe.
 
So sad to know that there is much wildlife that will perish again this year.

I really never noticed it on other threads but I was also not paying that much attention. Now after checking threads 1 and 2, I do see what you all are talking about. There are a lot of quotes and nothing else written by the poster who is quoting. Links to newspapers and pictures are missing, however some of those links went missing already before this last server change. Some Ontario cases were missing many vital links from newspaper archives a couple years back. I think it's just a glitch from server changes. Similar things happened when I had a forum with Americans and we used "free" Web servers, especially for picture links.

Unfortunately this is likely correct.

Anyone reading through this far may notice that the last several pages here don't make much sense. There was a site shutdown for a week or so back around the 20th/ June. Several posts are now missing entirely or partially. So be it, Kelly never caught any breaks during her brief life and I guess nothing has changed.

I did not remove any posts D1. Can't speak for anyone else.

Do you know who's posts were removed? Just glancing through I see posts that I would think some people may have seen as controversial, but they remain.

Just so you are aware: I read all posts. I do that on a daily basis. If I saw any (valid) reason not to leave them up they would be removed within that time frame. Even if someone complains because they do not like the content, they are not removed unless I feel there is a legitimate reason.

Chris has recently changed hosts and the site is up and running again.

Hopefully there will be no further issues.

Thanks for your patience everyone :)

So best not to stray into "Legions" because they have no bearing, as far as we know ... other than Jo-annes parents were at the Legion in Chilliwack when Jo-annes sibling/s and babysitter (not sure without checking back if they had a sitter) locked the door on Jo-anne when she left for the store.   so nobody knows exactly where between the store and home, she was taken.  :(  .... however, back in Jo-anne's thread, you will read somewhere in it, that we considered that someone over-hearing the Petersons on the phone with Jo-Anne looking for help to get home and in the house, may have seized the opportunity to scat on ahead and grab the child.  If memory serves me (again) it was pouring rain that night, and folks would probably have been paying more attention to trying to get out of the rain than noticing a car pulling up and grapping a child at some point.

I agree.

Another weekend of Search and Rescue being on the mountain. He has not been found.

As far as I am aware nothing has been ruled out yet. Still an open investigation, as the searching continues.
