- Did Val pick up hitchikers?  Would he stop and make an exception, if the hitchhiker appeared to be tired, dusty and thirsty etc?  Or did he have a policy never to do so and stick with it?

- No returned call as promised to wife.
Is it possible that the batteries on his cell phone went out?
Did he experience problems with his cell phone in the past?

- Did Val really bring his dogs with him to Barrhead?
Or did his friend say - that HE THOUGHT that Val had the dogs in the SUV?
Therein lies a big difference - he thought that he saw the dogs - or he did see Val's dogs.

- If he did bring the dogs with him to Barrhead - for sure, then he must of made it back to Morinville.
The dogs were found running around in the yard at Val's home.

Val's wife talked about raising money for aerial searches.
Did the RCMP not do any aerial searches?

That is not a bad plan at all!
If he is in the area, perhaps his dogs would find him.

Missing Since Mid-July; Last Seen In Barrhead


RCMP in the Alberta community of Morinville continue to ask the public for assistance in locating 45 year old Valentine Degenhardt of Salmon Arm who's been missing in that Province for nearly a month.


Degenhardt was last seen in Barrhead, Alberta around 5:30 p.m, on the 17th of July, when he had gone to visit a friend.

Constable Yelaina Avoine with the Morinville RCMP says "We're still investigating this file, were still asking for the public's assistance, were still looking for Mr. Degenhardt and his vehicle."
 

Avoine did say that a possible tip related to a burnt out vehicle was a dead end.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact Morinville RCMP or Crime-Stoppers.

A Facebook page has been set up in the midst of the search.

Quote SAP:

"There are so many missing daily from B.C., Saskatchewan, Ontario and Quebec lately going by the Canadian missing on FB. It would be a full time job keeping up with posting them. That is quite disconcerting. It seems these people walk out the door and vanish. It's horrifying what these families have to go through." unquote.

I agree.

Hi jinxed!!
How unfortunate that you were the last person to see Val, as that places you in a glare light.
Sorry about that. 

This can happen to any of us.  And that is why very often we don't want to talk to the cops, when we are no doubt very innocent.

Questions?  Only one - from me - did you see Val's dogs with him = or did you think that you saw the dogs?

That's about it - my dear, from me.

JB :)

jinxed;  if you saw the dogs, then whatever happened to Val, it happened after he returned to Morinville - as his dogs were found running around in the yard and his door was left open - but No Val -
- At least by all accounts of his family.

NO MORE  burning questions.  That question was burning but you answered it.

Thank you.

Jinxed; I read you, and I hear you! By all accounts he was just great guy, and thank you for confirming that.  So sorry you have been put through  the wringer on his disappearance.

Barrhead has its small town folk and new folk moving into new subdivisions - old town folk keep track of comings and goings.  I loved Barrhead, it's small town and friendly ways.
But as it goes in any small town, heads turn when the RCMP come to your door.

This is not helpful to a citizen who last saw by recorded accounts of seeing a person who has gone missing. You are doing - as the expression goes "The Best that you can".
And you sure as heck don't need your life to be turned upside down by a small meeting with someone that you haven't seen in awhile.
God !!

I hope the small town folk will think about it. 

Take care, and keep in touch if you need to further "stick up for yourself"
JB

Jinxed I have a couple of questions for you , if you would be so kind.  First thanks for comming on the site to clear some questions up .

First question- how did Val seem when you saw him? Did he voice any concerns he had or anything that in hind site made you think about or wonder?

second Question-  Did he say if he planned to head directly back to his house? or did he plan to stop any where?

third Questions-Did everything seem coshier with him and his family and his life in general? I guess my question might be do you  think there is any chance he might has just decided to take off some where?

Last question do you have any thoughts or ideas or guesses as to what may have happened?

Thanks for your answers, Jinxed. 
This has gotten me to thinking that perhaps when Val returned home he caught some people by surprise, ripping him off.  It went from bad to worse.  That is why his dogs were found at home but not him..

Jinx it was actually me that asked that list of questions you so graciously answered, thank so much for answering them all.

It is starting to look to me like hope is getting slimmer as well. In my opinion I am now wondering if he went home and had some visitors that took he from the house and god only knows what happened, they werent there for the dogs so they just left them.

Jinx since your near to where he went missing wondering if you have seen any searches going on or anything like that in effort to find him but then again I suppose they wouldnt even know where to look would they?

Jinx I looked at the videos again to see if I could see the time any where but doesnt seem there is a time marked on the video at least.  Wonder if the police know the time?
