Comox Valley girl missing for 20 years

This Friday will mark the 20th anniversary of Lindsey Nicholls disappearing.

THIS IS WHAT Lindsey Nicholls looked like when she vanished.

This Friday will mark the 20th anniversary of Lindsey Nicholls  disappearing.

Twenty years ago, on the BC Day long weekend, Lindsey was last seen as she left her temporary foster home on Royston Road in 1993. Her intended destination was the Nautical Days festivities in Comox. Lindsey was last seen wearing blue jeans, a khaki top

and white canvas shoes.

The police investigation involving Lindsey’s disappearance remains an active file for the General Investigation Section at the Comox Valley RCMP Detachment. In the 20 years she has been missing, police have pursued nearly 350 tips in an effort to determine what

happened to Lindsey after she left her temporary foster home on Royston Road.

Despite the efforts of police and investigators from the Missing Children’s Society of Canada, what happened to Lindsey

remains a mystery.

The RCMP, as well as the Missing Children Society of Canada, continue to collect information from the public surrounding Lindsey’s disappearance and actively pursue any new information surfaced.

Lindsey’s mother, Judy Peterson, remains in close contact with both the RCMP as well as the MCSC about the search for her daughter. This Friday, the RCMP as well as representatives from the MCSC will join Judy Peterson at Port Augusta Park in Comox for an event to recognize this significant milestone.

In addition, Judy continues to be driving force in the pursuit of Lindsey’s Law, legislation that is hoped to become the framework for a comprehensive National missing persons’ DNA databank.

Anyone with information regarding the disappearance of Lindsey Nicholls is asked to contact the Comox Valley RCMP Detachment at 250-338-1321, the Missing Children’s Society of Canada at

1-800-661-6160, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
