The disappearance of Luke Joly-Durocher gains national media attention

The loss of Luke will haunt his father, Rob Joly, for the rest of his life, but he’s hopeful he will see justice served.

“I’ll never be able to escape that grief. But justice for Luke, for our family? That I hope to see.”

The Joly and Durocher family, as well, as North Bay Police Service participated in a CTV W5 investigation into the disappearance of Luke Joly-Durocher.

The title of the segment “Vanished” will air Saturday on CTV.

Joly-Durocher from Temiscaming, Quebec was last seen on March 4, 2011 at 11:54 p.m.

He was 20-years-old at the time of his disappearance and was in North Bay visiting friends when he was refused entry into a licensed establishment at the corner of Main and Wyld Streets.

His parents reported him missing on March 7, according to North Bay Police.

At the time of the initial investigation police seized Luke’s dark navy American Eagle jacket and his prescription eye glasses from a Sherbrooke residence where he had been staying with friends.

Police also seized Joly-Durocher’s mobile phone, which showed his last communication was to his father on March 4 at 8:51 p.m.

Ellen White, owner and senior investigator of Pulse Private Investigations said “we are pleased that CTV’s W5 chose to dedicate an episode to the tragic disappearance of Luke Joly-Durocher.”

“We appreciate the kindness of the people of North Bay who graciously met with us, provided filming spaces and most of all sent in dozens of valuable tips,” she told The Nugget Tuesday.

“Cases are solved when communities care and this community has embraced Luke as their own.”
