MISSING SINCE 12/28/01
Martin Balfour, 26, was reported missing to the police on December 30, 2001, two days after he was last seen by his roommate. He was living in an apartment in the 12000 block of Harris Road, and he left his home sometime before 9:00 a.m. December 28, 2001. His car, a blue 1983 Toyota Supra, was found parked by police on December 31st, 2001, but there has not been any sign of Balfour.
Sgt. Pat Walsh of the Ridge Meadows RCMP detachment said that after two days of searching the bush along the Fraser River with 30 people, dogs and helicopters, he concluded there was little hope of finding Balfour in the immediate area.
