Police search property near Prince George

The parents of a young woman who disappeared along British Columbia’s so-called Highway of Tears, say the RCMP is searching a farm near Prince George, for their daughter’s remains.

Nicole Hoar was 25 and had been working as a tree planter, when she disappeared while hitchhiking on June 21st, 2002. The RCMP only confirms it has occupied five acres of a property near Prince George, to investigate what it calls a "historical homicide."

Spokeswoman, Corporal Annie Linteau, says the property surrounds a mobile home, which will not be searched, because police have no information that would suggest the owner of the property is involved in the investigation.

That investigation concerns 18 murdered or missing women, who have vanished on BC roads since 1990 and none of the cases has been solved.

Initially, it focused on Highway 16 running from Prince Rupert to Prince George and on to Edmonton.

However, police later expanded the geographical scope, to include unsolved cases along other BC highways…including those, leading to Hudson’s Hope, Kamloops, Merritt and 100 Mile House.
