The Missing Children Society of Canada is highlighting 10 cases leading up to International Missing Children’s Day on May 25 and a longtime Duncan case is one of them.

The hope is that the public can help provide answers for searching families.

Desmond Peter was reported missing March 12, 2007 from Duncan. At that time he was 14 years old.

Before he disappeared, people reported seeing Peter at the old Malaspina College in Duncan on Cowichan Way near the Trans-Canada Highway. After he disappeared, there were reports he had been seen in and around the Central Vancouver Island area, although those sightings were never confirmed. Meanwhile, friends and family have worked tirelessly to get answers.

This year, on Nov. 19 Peter will turn 25 years old. He’s a First Nations male who at the time he disappeared was 5 foot 6 with brown eyes, black hair and some facial stubble. He was known to wear a dark-coloured hoodie that he pulled up to conceal his face. He was also known by other names, such as Desi, Desmond Louie and Casey Louie.

If anyone knows something about Peter, call North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP: 250-748-5522. For more information, please visit https://mcsc.ca/cases/desmond-peter/
