This weekend marks a grim milestone for the City of Estevan.
On Sunday, it will be 19 years since Courtney Struble disappeared without a trace.
Struble vanished on July 9, 2004 after leaving the local vet clinic. She was 13-years-old at the time.
“It’s still an open investigation,” said Rich Lowen, Estevan’s police chief. “RCMP have jurisdiction over the investigation. We encourage anybody that has any information or who wants to come forward to call RCMP or call Estevan (Police) and we’ll be happy to get that information to the investigators.
“We’re still doing everything we can to try and have a conclusion and find closure for the file and to the family.”
Lowen also commented on how long the case has gone on and what that means from the perspective of a police investigation.
“Sometimes it’s harder, sometimes it’s easier. Sometimes over a period of time people will decide that they feel comfortable coming forward,” he said. “And maybe it’s just that little piece of time the person needs to feel that they can actually come forward and give that information that may solve the case.”
