Jo-Anne Pedersen - Chilliwack, B.C
On the evening of Saturday Feb. 19, 1983, ten-year-old Jo-Anne Pedersen had an argument with her sister and was locked out of the house. Jo-Anne walked to the convenience store, a short distance away, to call her mother and stepfather who were out for the evening.
Jo-Anne called her step-father from a phone booth outside the store. Witnesses saw Jo-Anne in the phone booth crying. Jo-Anne told her stepfather what had happened and asked him to come pick her up. A man came on the line and told her stepfather to come pick her up or he would call the police. After this, the call was disconnected.
Jo-Anne's mother and stepfather went to the convenience store but did not find Jo-Anne. They kept looking for her but couldn't find her and soon called the police to report her missing.
In February 2008, 25 years later, police received an anonymous letter from someone who claimed to have been in the phone booth with Jo-Anne. Through the media, police appealed for the writer to come forward and speak to them. Nothing more was heard from this man until August 2011 when the police received another anonymous letter from him. Another appeal was made asking for him to identify himself and talk to police. To date, this has not happened and the investigation continues to find out what happened to Jo-Anne.
It has been 29 years since Jo-Anne was last seen. She would be 40 years old today.
If you have any knowledge about Jo-Anne or the man in the phone booth, please call Cst. Justine Hayward of the Chilliwack RCMP 604-792-4611
