Three years after 24-year-old Kyle MacDonald was seen boarding a harbour plane in downtown Victoria, his disappearance continues to baffle police.
The Shawnigan Lake fishing and hunting guide said goodbye to his girlfriend and embarked on the Harbour Air flight to Vancouver at 11:20 a.m. on Aug. 30, 2007.
MacDonald got off the plane in Vancouver but failed to meet the friends he was to join for a weekend fishing trip, Island district RCMP spokesman Cpl. Darren Lagan said.
As far as police know, he hasn't been seen since. Investigators have no leads to explain what happened and foul play is not being ruled out.
There's been no use of his cellphone, credit cards or bank account, Lagan said.
His family has said MacDonald did not have a history of mental illness and was not known to be out of contact for long periods of time.
Police want to solve the case to give MacDonald's family some closure, Lagan said.
"Kyle vanished, leaving his family with many unanswered questions, and the pain of living life without him," said Lagan.
At the time of his disappearance, MacDonald was wearing a T-shirt and sandals. He was carrying a Calvin Klein duffle bag, a tackle box and a small fishing rod.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Cpl. Joe Houben with the Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit at 250-380-6200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
