Police continue to investigate the disappearance of 27 year old Julia STROBACH who was last seen in Courtenay, BC, on October 31st 2013. Investigators have confirmed the last sighting of Julia was in the 1000 block of Braidwood Road, Courtenay, in the early evening hours. Police are gravely concerned for Julia’s well being as she has been out of contact with family and friends for a year now. It is out of character for Julia to be out of contact for so long, especially with her 3 year old son who lives with relatives.
Officers with the Comox Valley RCMP General Investigation Section have spoken to a number of people in their efforts to gain information about Julia, and answer the many questions surrounding her disappearance. Investigators believe that there are additional friends and associates with information about Julia’s movements in the time leading up to her disappearance, who have yet to speak with police. In their continuing efforts, investigators are focused on tracking these people down, and are appealing directly to them for assistance in providing answers for Julia’s family. There is information to suggest some of these potential witnesses now reside in the Central Interior and Okanagan areas of British Columbia. RCMP investigators in the these regions are assisting local officers in locating several people who may be of assistance.
Julia’s family, friends, and particularly her three year old son, deserve answers about what has happened to Julia, states Tim Walton, Officer in Charge of the Comox Valley RCMP.
Despite the best efforts of our investigators over the last year, we have been unable to bring them solid information. We are appealing to anyone with information about Julia’s movements and activities in the days and weeks leading up to October 31st, 2013, to get in touch with us immediately.
While investigators have significant concerns about Julia’s well being, they have not found any definitive evidence to suggest she has met with foul play.
Anyone with information is urged to call Cst. Jonathan Grabb of the Comox Valley RCMP at 250-338-1321, or anonymously through Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
