Police conduct a search on a rural property using an excavator while looking for clues to the disappearance of Lindsey Nicholls.

Acting on tip from public, police search rural property for missing Lindsey Nicholls

Lindsey Nicholls was last seen walking on Royston Road on the BC Day long weekend in 1993. She was 14 when she went missing.

Over a two-day period last week, beginning Aug. 16, 20 forensically-trained police officers conducted a search and evacuation on a rural property based on a tip from the public. The results cannot be shared as the investigation is ongoing. “Somebody out there may know something, even if they believe it is minor or insignificant, that may assist in this investigation,” Island District RCMP Cpl. Tammy Douglas said in a news release. “We are asking anyone who may have information on Lindsey’s whereabouts or what may have happened to her to please call your local police or Crime Stoppers if you wish to remain anonymous.

“Next month would be Lindsey’s 38th birthday and her family is still looking for answers,” Douglas added.

At the time of her disappearance, Lindsey stood five-foot-three and weighed 110 to 115 pounds. She had green eyes and blond hair dyed with red henna. She was last seen wearing blue jeans, a khaki top and white canvas shoes.

Anyone with information regarding her disappearance is asked to contact the Comox Valley RCMP at 250-338-1321 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
