VANCOUVER – Twenty-four-year-old Nicole Hoar had been working as a tree planter in Prince George in June, 2002, when she decided to surprise her sister with a birthday visit in Smithers.
Originally from Red Deer, Alberta, Nicole was last seen at a gas station at 5952 Gauthier Road on June 21, 2002.
The station had a Mr.G convenience store and Nicole planned to hitchhike from there to a music festival in Smithers to see her sister. At about 2:50 p.m. a witness saw a woman matching Nicole’s description walk towards a yellow/orange-coloured car.
It is important to note that no one actually saw her get into the vehicle.
The driver is described as a Caucasian man, between 20 and 35 years old. He was wearing a short-sleeved white T-shirt.
When she went missing, Nicole was carrying a green shoulder bag with a blue patch and an orange dragon on it. She was also carrying a black-and-purple backpack from Mountain Equipment Co-op.
Nicole was wearing wire-rimmed octagonal glasses, greenish-brown capri pants and a red long-sleeved T-shirt.
