It’s been 14 years since Aaron Derbyshire disappeared from downtown Kelowna.

Derbyshire was last seen at Level nightclub on Leon Avenue around closing time on Sept. 30, 2006. His friends left at about 1:40 a.m. to watch an altercation happening outside and did not see him as the club emptied. Derbyshire was reported missing on Oct. 3 after he failed to show up for a family outing.

Appeals have been made in past years on the anniversary of his disappearance as police keep the file open.

At the time of his disappearance Derbyshire was 22 years old, 5’10” tall, 160 lbs. with brown hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing a dark button up shirt (possibly plaid) and dark jeans.

“Any lead, no matter how trivial it may seem, could end up being important in helping police solve this case,” states a Central Okanagan Crime Stoppers news release.

Kelowna RCMP can be contacted at 250-762-3300 or tips can be left anonymously on the Crime Stoppers tip line at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or submitted to, and possibly be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.
