August 14, 2014 marked the four year anniversary of Owen's disappearance. I often post a related newspaper article to keep the names and faces of the missing 'out there' on anniversary dates. This year I was unable to find anything in regard Owen. Sad.

Owen is still missing.

People from other countries love the Canadians, saying we are warm and friendly people and I believe they think we are all up to snuff. Unfortunately dangers lurk everywhere. Very sad for the family.
I am still shocked the hospital allowed him to leave in his condition. I'm sure they won't make that mistake again.

I wonder if the Phoenix ski hill area just outside of Grand forks has been searched?  The area is very treed and of course hilly and remote. A very good place to put someone not to be found for some time.

Sadly his family updated their Facebook page last evening to confirm that remains found just 3KM from the hospital where he was last seen are that of Owen.. I can't copy and paste on my current device but this is what Sharon Rooney posted in the "HELP FIND OWEN ROONEY" FACEBOOK GROUP

"We were notified a few weeks ago that human remains were found at Hardy Mountain BC..3Km from the hospital that Owen went missing from. We have come together as a family to receive the news via a phone appointment, the DNA results have confirmed it is our Owen. Emotionally digesting this news is a challenge. We take solace in the fact we can bring him home to us. Our resolution has been given. Many people have shared Owen's short and fulfilled life. He is well loved. We have no further information until we hear from the coroner.  We are so grateful to everyone here for your positive love and support. This has given us the ability to continue our connection, preservance and strength till this day. We thank the Grand Forks Search and Rescue for their bravery and diligence in bringing Owen home to us. For all of those with missing family members, may you find peace in your heats.. ambiguity is not easy and we send you much love.  A very grateful Rooney family XO""


Very sad but a relief for the family to have some closure finally. Wising them all peace while they grieve the loss of their beloved.
