Tribes makes plea for three missing members

Chief William Seymour is reminding the community of other members whose whereabouts are unknown.

A week after one Cowichan Tribes member went missing, Chief William Seymour is reminding the community of other members whose whereabouts are unknown.

Everett Jones, 47, was last seen leaving his home in the Club Road area on the morning of Feb. 10, and Search and Rescue crews spent much of last weekend looking for him, with no success.

Disappearing suddenly like that was out of character for Jones, police said. He is described as having the mental capacity of a 12-year-old, and has short dark hair, glasses and no teeth. He was clean shaven when last seen and is approximately 5-foot-10 and 170 pounds. He was wearing a camouflage jacket and beige pants.

 

Ian Henry, 26, has been missing since last August, when he left his Tzouhalem Road-area home. There were a few reported sightings within the following days, but nothing was confirmed. Henry was described as about 5-foot-10 and between 160 and 180 pounds. He was last seen wearing a dark shirt and dark shorts.

 

Desmond Peter was 14 when he went missing almost nine years ago in March 2007. Peter has brown eyes and brown hair, and may go by the names Desmond Louie or Casey Louie.

“Our hearts and prayers are with the families of the missing persons as the search goes on,” Seymour said. “Cowichan Tribes will continue to offer services to the families. Please contact the RCMP or 911 if you have any information or know the whereabouts of any of these community members.

“We would like to thank all of the parties involved in the searches for all of your time, effort and support during this difficult time for the community and the families involved.”

Anyone with information about any of the missing men should call the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at 250-748-5522.
