“The Lake Cowichan RCMP continue to investigate Henry’s disappearance. Recent flights with RCMP Air Services over areas believed to be where they may have travelled have not located Henry or their vehicle,” said Lake Cowichan RCMP Detachment Cpl.

The RCMP are also in regular contact with Henry’s family to share information.
