GRANF FALLSWINDSOR, N.L. — It has been almost a year since Thomas Jones was first reported missing on Feb. 14, 2019.
He was last seen in the area of the old paper mill on Southside Road in the central Newfoundland community of Grand Falls-Windsor.
Despite a lot of searching in the days and weeks following his disappearance, the mystery remains.
According to the RCMP, there is no new information to disclose on the investigation.
“Currently, no searches are planned,” wrote a RCMP spokesperson in a prepared statement. “That could change subject to the receipt of credible information that might support the search of a particular area.”
Police would not give details on the exact number of searches they've conducted since Jones went missing, nor did they provide a map of the areas searched since last February.
"Grand Falls-Windsor RCMP have completed several different search efforts with the assistance of the local GSAR teams and the use of a helicopter for a number of aerial searches," wrote a spokesperson in a followup statement provided to the Central Voice. "The areas searched were in reference to information received at the time and were adjusted as new information was obtained."
The investigation is still open and police are urging anyone with information to contact them at (709)489-2121 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
