Missing person case still baffles police

It’s been two years this week since Geoffrey Meisner went missing, and it’s still unclear what happened to the West Kelowna man.

It’s been two years this week since Geoffrey Meisner went missing, and it’s still unclear what happened to the West Kelowna man.

“There are no updates,” said Const. Steve Holmes on Monday, speaking to what will be made public of the police investigation.

Questions about what happened to the father of four, still linger and a Facebook page dedicated to bringing Meisner home is still busy as friends and family continue to make pleas for whoever may be aware of what happened to come forward.

“I hope that someone will grow a heart and tell us where you are so that you can be home with your loving wife and children,” wrote one family friend.

Although police have no updates currently, this time last year Meisner was declared legally dead, after a court order was filed by his wife Tammy, for the sake of clearing up the family’s financial affairs. The document also shed light on details surrounding his disappearance.

“Since his disappearance, I have been informed by RCMP investigators that Geoffrey was actively involved in criminal activities and I truly believe that individuals associated with those organized criminal gangs caused the disappearance and death of my husband on Nov. 27, 2009,” his wife wrote to the court.

Tammy last saw her husband—and the father of her four children—Nov. 27, when she dropped him off at Orchard Park Mall to retrieve his truck.

When he didn’t return home as planned or respond to a text message, Tammy began calling her husband’s friends and sparked a search.

His truck was founded at the Leathead Starbucks that night and a missing person’s report was filed soon after.
