No new tips yet in the year-old disappearance of a North Van man
Last week Mounties sent out a press release to coincide with the one-year anniversary of the mysterious disappearance of a North Vancouver man with the hopes of generating some fresh tips. But so far, investigators are no closer to discovering the whereabouts of Tim Cameron, 53.
“Unfortunately our investigator has not received anything as of yet. However sometimes information comes through third parties such as other police agencies and takes a while to surface so we remain hopeful,” said North Van RCMP Insp. Dave Attfield in an email to The Outlook on Monday.
On August 18, 2012, Cari Wineberg dropped off Cameron (pictured at left), her common-law partner, at a bus stop on Marine Drive near Pemberton Avenue.
According to the police news release, the couple was “experiencing difficulties in their relationship,” and “decided on taking a break.”
“Tim asked me if it was over, and the last thing I told him was that it wasn’t impossible, but that it may take up to a year before I would even consider giving it another go,” Wineberg said in the statement. “With that, Tim just walked away. Other than a possible sighting the next day, nobody’s seen or heard from him since.”
A short time later she contacted North Vancouver police and a thorough investigation was launched but police were unable to locate Cameron, who police say is a talented net-maker known to work in commercial fishing or in construction as a first-aid attendant.
“Unfortunately, Tim was not your average guy living a predictable lifestyle,” said Const. Mary-Louise Zadravetz of the North Vancouver RCMP Missing Persons Unit in the police handout. “This makes investigating Tim’s disappearance more difficult. Now that a year has come and gone, this scenario of him coming back to perhaps mend their relationship, although possible, is looking less probable.”
