General Discussion / People Making a Difference in Finding Our Missing
« on: August 02, 2014, 06:02:17 PM »
I thought I would start this thread today to honor those people, innovators, or organizations that are making a difference in the search for our family members. I read this story about WestJet today, and thought it was worth the praise. Perhaps, if you are aware of anyone or any organization worthy of our praise for taking the initiative, you may want to share their story as well.

Missing N.B. man found dead in Alberta, closing 19-year-old case
Donald Jean Belliveau last seen in 1995
CBC News Posted: Aug 02, 2014 8:40 AM AT Last Updated: Aug 02, 2014 1:34 PM AT


The RCMP in Jasper, Alta. say the discovery of human remains on the Athabasca Glacier ends a nearly two-decade old search for a missing New Brunswick man.
Missing 19 years ago, found deceased. Thoughts and prayers to the family and friends.



Hikers discovered a body in the Athabasca Glacier located in Jasper National Park on Thursday.

Alberta RCMP used a helicopter to recover the remains.

Police say the body is of a man who was 28 years old at the time of his disappearance in 1995.

CBC has learned the man is Donald Jean Belliveau.

"We're looking at a 19-year-old missing person case. Plus, even though up on the glacier the ice would have done a good preservation of the body, the clothing matched the exact clothing that the person had. A set of particular glasses that he was wearing at that point in time," said RCMP Sgt. Jeff Campbell.

The Mounties say the man's next of kin have been notified and are grateful to finally have answers to questions they've been asking for 19 years.

The RCMP and the Edmonton Medical examiners office will continue working to determine the cause of death, but investigators say foul play is not suspected.

Have you guys heard this story?  Emma, 25-year-old animal lover, stopped her car to help a group of ducklings cross the road, but unfortunately a guy on his motorcycle, 50, and his daughter, 16, didn't pay attention or something, and hit the rear end of the car. So Emma received two counts of criminal negligence causing death (maximum life sentence) and two counts of dangerous driving causing death (maximum of 14 years)? 

First, why two sets of charges? But, mostly how in the world - when we see so many horrific intentional deaths that don't get sentenced -  are we spending the time, money and sentence on a girl's act of humanity? Surely, isn't our time better spent on ensuring the criminals with intent get the sentences? I'm thinking, the doctor that stabbed his children over 50 times, the bus traveler that ate his passenger alive, the people responsible for the deaths of a beautiful teen who was in the woods partying with friends, and the son of the priest/ex-police officer that kills, then kills again and gets no sentence?  Do I have to list more?  What am I missing?

I'm not saying that the lives of the motorcyclists are not worth something, but isn't this a tragic accident not an intentional criminal act that caused death? No matter what the system does to Emma, she already has a life sentence of having witnessed the accident that killed two people. And, to what degree does the motorcyclist have in controlling his path and his ability to stop, and how far he should stay behind a moving vehicle? Did she actually cause the fatal crash, or did the motorist behind her have some responsibility in all this?

Canoeists find human remains on bank of North Saskatchewan river near Maidstone
CBC News Posted: May 22, 2014 8:30 PM CT Last Updated: May 22, 2014 8:30 PM CT

A group of canoeists paddling on the North Saskatchewan River near Maidstone came across human remains Thursday. RCMP say they hope an autopsy will allow them to positively identify the body.

Mounties from the Maidstone detachment of the RCMP were dispatched at 2:10 p.m. CST after getting a call about a body on the riverbank.

The human remains were found about 10 kilometres north of the Paynton Ferry crossing.

RCMP said their investigation will include members from the major crimes section as well as the provincial coroner's office.

They noted that while an autopsy may help them identify the body, they may need to do some follow up work to be absolutely certain.

Upon further investigation of the debris, the resident found partial adult human skeletal remains.

Can human remains wash up that far away from Wasaga Beach?

BACKGROUND

During the beginning of February 2005, Hal FORREST returned home to Barrie, ON from the University of Waterloo after failing numerous courses and being unable to provide for himself financially. After approximately 3 weeks, Hal's parent noticed him to be lacking motivation and encouraged Hal to seek meaningful employment. Hal's parents, in conjunction with their son, attempted to create a personal plan on how Hal could positively contribute to the family/household. On the 27th of February 2005,

Hal and his parents became involved in a heated disagreement over his lack of motivation and it is still unknown if this argument triggered Hal's disappearance. On the 28th of February 2005, Hal drove his mother to her workplace and after dropping her off for the day advised he was going to be searching local business for employment. He advised his mother that he would return at the end of her shift but failed to show. Upon returning home his mother mother found a hand written note from Hal advising that he was leaving the house and was "going to find himself". The note also advised the mother's vehicle was parked in a nearby bookstore parking lot and that the keys were in the vehicle. He had also removed all personal belongings from his room but left behind his personal identification and credit cards. This day was the last anyone has seen Hal.

Since his going missing on the 28th of February 2005, no members of his family, friends, faculty and associates have heard from him. His family believes Hal may be living in the Vancouver, British Columbia area under a new identity but this information has not been confirmed.

"Police are also still trying to determine how she got there. They believe she was dumped..."

She has not been found in the US database system.
