David Kenneth Bonell age 48 missing since may 10 2007
« on: August 22, 2009, 09:29:20 AM »
Dave is my father, he was a drug addict on the streets in kelowna. Noone knows what happened to him, he just disappeared. Other than the drug use he was a great man and i love him dearly. I just wish i had some answers, some closure.

Hello, Davesson...I'm sorry, and I would like to see closure for you and many others missing loved ones. The picture you posted in the avatar...is he Dave, your dad?
Sometimes people move on to other areas; we've had many in Alberta that have come from B.C.
What I will do is familiarize myself with the photos of missing people listed here, b/c I do have the opportunity later on in the colder weather to come in contact with people who have NFA, etc. Know that people do care.
Have you checked with your local law enforcement for any info? Possibly they could have pictures of your dad distributed across Canada??

I was in Kelowna when Dave went missing and I knew him well. I also have no answeres but just the rumors that I heard through people in the drug culture. I wish I knew more as well.

Sorry about your friend. I guess you suggesting this had something to do with the drug industry?

Very sorry to hear about your missing loved one. Have you checked some of the sites that list those found who remain unidentified or have you listed your loved one as missing on the following:

Canada OPP Missing Persons and Unidentified Site:  http://www.missing-u.ca/
Canada Missing and Unidentified Private Site:  http://officialcoldcaseinvestigations.com/forumdisplay.php?f=182
Canada Missing and Unidentified Private Site:  http://www.missingadults.ca/
United States and Canada International Registry:  http://www.namus.gov/
The Interpol:  http://www.interpol.int/public/Children/Missing/NationalLaws/mcCanada.asp

Having more of a description of him may help, but here are some stories about a person found in the date and age range you are describing:

I can't say for sure that it had somthing to do with drugs but he was involved in drugs for a while before he went missing so who knows.Some people say that he moved out east?

I took another look at the drawing of the man found in the fraser river in Vancouver.  Now I don't know how to merge the two pics onto one page but  it sure seems to me that this could be bonnell.  Can anyone on here do this so we could have a side by side to look at?

solvy; is this the one you mean?


The man was of European ancestry and was likely in his 40s or 50s when he died. He was 180 centimetres (5 foot 11 inches) tall and weighed 90 kilograms (200 pounds).

The man had small scars on the front and back of his right wrist. He had been missing many teeth for several years, and his remaining teeth were very badly decayed, said Stephen Fonseca, manager of identification and disaster response area of the BC Coroners Service, who completed a facial reconstruction of the man.

"This man may have been distraught or suffering mental illness at the time of his death," the news release said.
http://www.vancouversun.com/Coroner+seeks+help+identifying+dead/2248539/story.html

Fonseca said conducting a facial reconstruction can take a year or more, depending on how decomposed or fragmented the body parts are. He said the death was not suspicious

Thank  you Lost!

Yes, this is the one.  Although when side by side, I do see now that  the hairline seems off.  Its the nose and general  head shape that's close. Ears I can't really tell. 
Seeing as its only a sketch, I think it could be him, only dna I guess could tell for sure.

Such a shame when families are left in limbo about where there loved ones are.

A few years of drug use can severly change the looks of a person and maybe this is a possibility here.

solvy; considering that sketch was made of a deceased person, (I assume it was) the resemblance seems "quite on" to me.  ...good observation on your part!  I wonder if police kept some DNA from those remains!  I don't see any of the features being too "off" considering.
Davesson could you offer an opinion?  I hope you're still reading bud - so sorry you have to go through so much pain and the need for closure never really ends.

Solvy; has anyone forwarded/suggested this match to the authorities?  There doesn't seem to be a response to your last question.

Lost,  Not that I am aware of, and I know I haven't. 

How does one do that?  Have you done it before?

No solvy; but we usually have the instructions with every thread -usually in the first post.
There has to be an original thread for this man.
