Campaign aimed at solving 3-year mystery of teen's disappearance on Bowen Island

June 20, 2012 - 3:59 PM

BOWEN ISLAND, B.C. - Homicide investigators in Metro Vancouver are marking the third anniversary of the disappearance of Squamish teen Jodi Henrickson with a pledge that her case remains a top priority.

Henrickson was 17 when she was last seen on Bowen Island, leaving a house party.

Mounties believe she was the victim of foul play but her body has never been found.

RCMP Sgt. Jennifer Pound said Wednesday that there are no suspects, but a few tips from in the past have generated some persons of interest.

Sea-to-Sky Crime Stoppers chairman Larry Murray said volunteers have put up about 200 posters of Henrickson around Bowen Island, Horseshoe Bay, and Squamish.

"We're deeply hoping that someone will come forth with information either directly to the police or anonymously through the Crime Stoppers program," Murray said.

He said the posters show three photos of Henrickson and have also been placed on B.C. ferries for the second time since last November.
