An emotional YouTube video asking for information was released this week on the third anniversary of 17-year-old Jodi Henrickson’s disappearance on Bowen Island.
THE VIDEO — a slideshow of pictures of Henrickson growing up set to music — is the latest attempt to get someone in the public who knows something to come forward.
Sgt. Jennifer Pound of the RCMP’s Integrated Homicide Investigation Team said Henrickson’s family deserves to know what happened to her.
“Three years of not knowing where your loved one is or what has happened to them is too much for anyone to endure,” she said in a press statement.
Henrickson disappeared on June 20, 2009 after attending a house party on Bowen Island. She was reportedly last seen on Bowen, with her ex-boyfriend Gavin Arnott, between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. that morning.
No sign of Henrickson has shown up since then, despite several searches by both police and volunteers.
The teen, who lived with her family in Squamish, had told her parents she was going camping at Cultus Lake, but went to the island to attend the party instead. She was reported missing four days later, when she didn't come home.
Police have repeatedly said they think Henrickson met with foul play and never left the island.
Her brother Rob-James Henrickson told the North Shore News in December the family is counting on someone to come forward with information that will help police solve the case.
"Somebody knows something," he said at the time. "We're just waiting.”
Henrickson’s friends and family marked the anniversary of her disappearance this week by sharing their memories of the teen and asking for information on a Facebook page dedicated to finding her.
“Today will mark three years from the day Mom asked me if she should file a missing person file . . .” wrote Dylan Mick Henrickson. “It's crazy, but I swear at that moment I didn't believe it myself.”
“The time has come to solve this,” wrote family friend Cindy Nadeau Blatny. “The person or people responsible, I know read this. Please bring peace to this family and do the right thing.”
Both the Facebook and YouTube pages can be found under “Let’s find Jodi Henrickson.”
