08/30/07: Kyle MacDonald, 24, Vancouver, BC, Canada

Kyle MacDonald is missing.

Kyle Macdonald
MISSING since 08/30/07
Vancouver, BC
 Kyle MacDonald, 24, was last seen on August 30, 2007 when he was dropped off by his girlfriend to take a commuter flight from the Inner Harbor in Victoria. He planned to join others for a weekend fishing trip in Vancouver.

Police say Macdonald boarded the 11:20 a.m. Harbour Air flight. He was carrying a Calvin Klein duffel bag, tackle box, small fishing rod, wearing shorts, a T-shirt and 'flip-flop' sandals.

MacDonald failed to return from the trip and has not been heard from since. His cellphone, credit cards or bank account has not been used.

Friends and family are at a loss as to what happened to the avid outdoorsman. They say he did not have a history of mental illness and to their knowledge did not have an argument or traumatic experience that might have made him vanish.

His mother, Anita Jamieson, told The Province, "He's very shy, but he was a loner. He kept to himself. He had a lot of friends, but a lot of times he went on his own looking for deer," Jamieson said. She also said that while her son would often go into the wilderness for several days at a time without giving his exact whereabouts, he would never go longer than a few days without contacting her.

Numerous inquiries have been conducted to date with no leads as to MacDonald’s whereabouts, who he met, or where or what became of him. Foul play cannot be ruled out at this time.

At the time of his disappearance, MacDonald lived in Shawnigan Lake where he was a fishing and hunting guide. The Province reported that MacDonald's disappearance is unusual because he left behind assets, including a house he owned.

Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime unit is assisting the Shawnigan Lake RCMP in this investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Cpl. Joe HOUBEN with the Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit at 250-380-6200 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).

Again...it's a strange thing that the Canadian men seem to be "still missing" at over 90%.

It's odd to me...
