Search for missing son brings mother back to Kelowna.


Charles Karoly Horvath went missing from Kelowna in the spring or summer of 1989. He had been staying at the Tiny Town Campground, on Lakeshore Rd., and worked various odd jobs around Kelowna. This coming May, Denise Allan will make her final trip to Kelowna, from England, to beg for information about her son’s whereabouts.

During her stay, Allan will have a Missing Person Billboard in Charles’ honour erected, in hopes of appealing to those with information about his disappearance.

Although this technique has never been employed in Kelowna, investigators are aware of it’s success in other parts of Canada and North America. It costs about a $1000.00 a month to rent a billboard. Allan will be appealing for monetary assistance for this expensive endeavor.

For those of your that do not have any information regarding Charles’ disappearance but still want to help, you can make a tax deductible donation to the Charles Horvath billboard fund. The Compassionate Friends Foundation has agreed to accept monetary donations and will issue tax receipts accordingly.
