‘When Hope is gone there is nothing, and the world becomes an empty void, for one family, the setting sun indicates the beginning of a long and lonely night, haunted by the thoughts of the missing.’
It was on August 23, 1982, when Al Bonar, manager of the Gorman Mills, located in West Kelowna, B.C. placed a phone call to the RCMP detachment in Kelowna. He was reporting a long-term missing employee by the name of Bob Johnson. “Bob hasn’t taken a sick day, let alone missed a day’s work by just not showing up, in 20 years.” He explained to the officer. “They had gone on a camping vacation with his family to Wells Gray Park about two weeks ago and haven’t returned. He has missed almost a week of work now.”
The family was scheduled to return on the 16th of August.
