Family still seeks answers

It has been over a year since 16-year-old Makayla Chang disappeared.

The young woman was last seen outside a downtown Nanaimo Tim Hortons on March 17, 2017.

Investigators found Chang's body two months after she went missing and deemed her death a homicide.

It's now one year later and no one has been arrested or charged in the teen's death who was described as funny, fun and caring.

Her family still wants answers while the case remains an open investigation.

 "It is hard. It's been a rough year," said her grandmother, Dolly Chang, who recently marked Chang's 17th birthday on March 1. "Not having answers the last year has been hard and frustrating. We all want justice."

It is still considered an active homicide investigation, according to the family.

Nanaimo RCMP won't comment on the investigation.

Steven Bacon, a friend of Chang's was questioned by officers before her body was found.

He was later released by RCMP.

After numerous searches that took place in a field near Bacon's home, the Colliery Dam and at the Cat Stream, the location of where her body was finally found remains unknown.

Dolly Chang along with her family patiently wait for answers.
