It is one of BC’s most tragic mysteries.
On June 19, 2009, 17 year old Jodi Henrickson disappeared on Bowen Island after leaving a house party with her ex-boyfriend.
To this day, there has been no sign of her and no arrests have been made. Investigators believe she’s a victim of foul play.
Police and Crime Stoppers are once again appealing to the public to come forward with information on Jodi Henrickson. Can you help give Jodi’s family the answers they so desperately need?
Jodi, who lived with her family in Squamish, told her parents she was going camping at Cultus Lake. In fact, she went to Bowen Island to party with friends.
She attended a party on Harding Road, then she went to another party in an area known as Leroyville, about 8 km away. She went back and forth between the two parties.
Jodi left the Harding Road Party with her ex- boyfriend sometime after 4 am. The two had a stormy relationship. At one point Gavin Arnott had been convicted of assaulting Jodi, given a conditional discharge and had been placed on probation.
The next morning, June 20, they were seen walking hand in hand in the direction of the Snug Cove Ferry Terminal.
At around 6:30 in the morning the pair were spotted near the Miller’s Landing turn off. Gavin was the last person to see her. It’s believed the two were arguing on the side of the road and that her ex turned his back to her and walked away. He was a person of interest in her disappearance, but there has been no conclusive evidence to charge him.
There has been much speculation as to what happened to Jodi. No body and no remains have been found. No convictions have been made. How can a person simply vanish like that? Her family has been forced to live not knowing what happened, but they deserve to have closure.
Someone out there surely knows something. No piece of information is too small to help solve this case. If you know anything call police or if you would like to remain anonymous visit bccrimestoppers.com or call 1 800 222- 8477.
