On January 21, 2016, the London Police Service was contacted by a citizen with a request to check the welfare of Shelley Joy Desrochers, then 42, because she had not been seen or heard from.

Police were unable to locate her, and a missing-persons investigation was initiated. Since that time, investigators have been searching for her and seeking to uncover the circumstances surrounding her disappearance.

The lack of contact with friends and family, along with information gathered during the course of the investigation, indicates a strong likelihood that she is deceased, however investigators are continuing to explore all possibilities.
