Six months missing

Mother's Day is fast approaching, but for one British Columbia woman the day will be a difficult one, says RCMP Cpl. Kevin Douglas of the Williams Lake Detachment.

Mother's Day is fast approaching, but for one British Columbia woman the day will be a difficult one, says RCMP Cpl. Kevin Douglas of the Williams Lake Detachment.

Sunday will mark six months since the disappearance of 26-year-old Tyler Walton of Williams Lake, and his mother, Chantal Desruisseaux will spend Mother's Day wondering where he is, said Douglas in a news release.

"Tyler was last seen November 09, 2009 at approximately 7 p.m. in Williams Lake and then, by all accounts simply vanished. Tyler is an outgoing person who's disappearance is very uncharacteristic," said Douglas who describes the man as a Caucasian male in good physical shape, 5'11" tall and weighing 150 lbs. He wears his hair at medium length and may or may not have a beard.

"Any mother will tell you how difficult it is not to know where your children are. Each day since Tyler went missing has been hard, but the special days are the hardest because of the memories that are attached to them," explains Desruisseaux. "This year the best Mother's Day present that I could receive would be any information that can help us locate Tyler."

Police have conducted extensive interviews with family, friends and other associates along with checks into financial, medical, phone and travel records. All avenues of investigation - including those which were even remotely possible have been examined. Tyler's family and friends have been very active in the search for any information that may help in bringing Tyler home.

Photos can be viewed on a Facebook site established by his family and friends called "Where in the World is Tyler Walton".

Anyone with information regarding Walton's disappearance is asked to call the Williams Lake Detachment at 250-392-6211 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
