Mother won't quit
Someone knows about daughter
On August 2, Lindsey Nicholls will have been missing, without a trace, for
five years. Her mother, Judy Peterson, remains convinced that someone out there
knows what happened to her daughter. Peterson is launching a public appeal for
information. A reward fund is now being established, and anyone wishing to help
can make a donation to the Lindsey Nicholls Reward Fund at any branch of Canada
Sometime during the morning of August 2, 1993, 14year-old Lindsey was
walking down a rural road outside Courtenay and hasn't been seen since. Initially,
she was considered a runaway by the police. "When she left, there was no
note; she didn't take any of her things, not even a coat." says Peterson.
Peterson doesn't know what she would have done if the Missing Children Society
of Canada hadn't stepped in to help. A non-profit organization dedicated to
the professional, active and ongoing search for runaway and abducted children,
the society launched a massive investigation -including hiring a reputable
private investigative firm (CANPRO Pacific Services) which includes ex-Mounties
like Fred Maile, who worked on the Clifford Olsen case.
Despite this, there have been no concrete leads and police now believe that
foul play was involved. Lindsey, with blonde hair and green eyes, was born on
September 12, 1978. She was 5 feet 3 inches/ 160 centimetres tall and weighed
115 lbs.l52 kilograms when she disappeared.
