Family missing 30 years

Thirty years have gone by, and there are still no answers in the disappearance of a Prince George family.

RCMP say the disappearance of the Jack family is a tragic and haunting memory in the community. 

Ronald and Doreen Jack along with children Russell, 9, and Ryan, 4, were last heard from on Aug. 2, 1989, when Ronald called his mother in the Burns Lake area. 

It is believed shortly after that phone call, the family departed their home on Strathcona Avenue with an unknown male in a dark coloured 4x4 pickup. 

Although the family was expected to return in 10 days, they have not been seen since.

Police say several properties were identified and searched as possible burial sites for the family, all without success. 

Last month, members of the Prince George RCMP Serious Crime Unit searched a property on the Saik'uz First Nation, south of Vanderhoof. 

The search included the use of ground penetrating radar and heavy equipment. 

No evidence of the Jack family was located.

"I want to thank everyone who helped with the search for their support, even though there was nothing found," says Marlene Jack, Doreen's sister and spokesperson for the family. "I would like to ask from the bottom of my heart that everyone with information come forward to police. Please help bring our family home."

Since 1989, RCMP have conducted hundreds of interviews as part of the investigation. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact Prince George RCMP at 250-561-3300 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or www.pgcrimestoppers.bc.ca.
