Tammy Meisner is petitioning to have her missing husband declared legally dead under the Survivorship and Presumption of Death Act.
Documents filed in B.C. Supreme Court October 21st were obtained by CHBC News.
Her husband, Geoffrey Meisner, went missing a year ago on November 27, 2009.
He was last seen by his wife about 9:45 that morning after dropping him off at Orchard Park so he could retrieve his truck.
She says he had planned to help his brother move later that morning then have coffee with her uncle before returning home about 1 p.m.
He never showed up.
His truck was later discovered in the Starbucks parking lot on Highway 97 North. His wallet, keys and cell phone were all missing.
In her affidavit, Tammy Meisner admitted to having limited knowledge that her husband was 'associated, and or affiliated with the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club and another criminal gang known as the King Pin Crew.'
Just days after her husband's disappearance, a tearful Tammy Meisner told reporters her husband was a protein salesman and a mixed martial arts fighter.
When asked if she would be surprised if he struck up an association with gang types, Tammy Meisner responded, "yes."
In her affidavit, Tammy Meisner says the disappearance has caused a serious financial hardship for her and the couple's four children.
Meisner says her husband did not have a life insurance policy and the family home, five vehicles and boat are all registered in his name.
She says she is unable to insure or sell any of these assets.
Meisner says she has been advised by police that Geoffrey likely fell victim to homicide at the hands of individuals involved with organized crime gangs and that the RCMP is proceeding as a homicide case.
