It has been two years since Port Moody, B.C., woman Trina Hunt was reported missing.

Once Hunt, 48, was reported missing on Jan. 18, 2021, Port Moody police launched an extensive search, along with her family members and others in the community.

On March 29, 2021, investigators found remains of a body near Hope, south of Silver Creek. A few weeks later, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team confirmed the remains were Hunt.

Her brother, Brad Ibbott, released the following statement on the two-year anniversary of the onset of the investigation:

“Sadly, it has been two years since our dear Trina was first reported missing and was later found murdered in Hope, B.C.  This journey has been incredibly difficult, with never-ending waves of grief, anguish and trauma repeatedly engulfing us.  Nothing about our path has been simple.

“We so wish Trina knew of all the support that has embraced her these past two years. Trina would be humbled, a little bashful (truthfully, a lot!) but would also be ever so appreciative of all the love.  We continue to thank you for the ongoing positive comments and support. Your kindness has truly helped us cope.”
