Someone has gone missing who is a close family friend of someone I know well, and she has asked to spread the word. Here’s her message:
“Pierre is a close friend, a devote husband and father with 2 young boys (2 weeks old and 2 years old) and he went missing Sunday night. His car was recovered Sunday night at Prospect Point in Stanley Park and so far, all attempts to locate him have failed. A search party is being organized for tomorrow morning…please see the details from Paula (his wife) below. I understand that you are all incredibly busy people — but if you can spare some time tomorrow morning, it would be deeply appreciated by all concerned. Any and all are welcomed and obviously the more people that come, the larger area that can be searched.”
Here’s a link to the Globe and Mail article about Pierre’s disappearance: http://bit.ly/19lX7j – it includes a current picture.
Details from Paula (Pierre’s wife) are below.
Dear Friends and Family,
As you may have already heard personally or on the news, Pierre Parkinson is missing. Pierre is the wonderful father of two young boys, an incredible husband and an amazing friend.
We are organizing an open grid search at Stanley Park tomorrow Wednesday November 11th at 9am. Please meet at Prospect Point Cafe at 9am sharp so we can assess the number of volunteers. Please forward this to anyone that might be willing to help. Stanley Park is huge so the more searchers the better. We will be organizing everyone into groups of approximately ten to search different zones of the park.
Please note the following important information:
- When: Wednesday November 11th
- Time: 9 am sharp
- Location: Prospect Point Cafe in Stanley Park – large covered area outside of the cafe – Clothing: wear warm, waterproof clothing and sturdy footwear
- Bring: cell phone, flashlight, walking stick or ski pole, food & water (for yourself)
We’ll provide maps of the area, a photo of Pierre, and organize the teams.
Please do not contact us unless you have specific questions. If necessary, call Andrea at 604-879-8769 home/604-603-1928 cell or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We appreciate your help and your friends/family’s help with this important search!
