North Bay police searching Chippewa Creek area as part of historical disappearance case

North Bay police are conducting a general search of Chippewa Creek as part of an ongoing investigation into the 2011 disappearance of Luke Joly-Durocher.

It’s unclear what parts of the creek investigators will be focused on or when the search will happen. It’s also unknown whether Ontario provincial Police K9 service will be assisting.

David Woolley, corporate communications officer with the North Bay police told The Nugget “as this is an active investigation we cannot provide further details about the search, its cause or how it affects the case.”

North Bay police most recently searched a home in Temiscaming, Quebec in June.

It’s unknown if anything was found in their investigation.

Joly-Durocher’s father, Rob Joly, visited the Sherbrooke Street residence where his son was last seen on March 4, 2011.

Joly-Durocher, a resident of Temiscaming, was in North Bay visiting friends when he disappeared.

At the time of the initial investigation police said they seized the dark navy American Eagle jacket owned by Joly-Durocher and his prescription glasses from a residence on Sherbrooke Street where was was staying with friends.

Also seized was his mobile cellphone.

Anyone with information about the disappearance of Luke Joly-Durocher is asked to contact North Bay Police Service at 705-497-5555.
