On Aug. 12, friends and family members of Mo Shah, a Lake Cowichan resident who went missing in August of 1992, went for a bike ride down towards Skutz Falls.
Shah had gone on a bike ride down towards Skutz Falls at 8:30 p.m., and was not seen again. It was well known that he enjoyed mountain biking.
On the evening of his disappearance he was seen by more than one person as he parked his pick-up and rode away towards Skutz Falls.
Anne Khan is Shah’s sister-in-law, and one of the organizers of the event, and though she was hoping for a bit more press coverage of the event, and possibly a few Lake Cowichan RCMP members to participate in the ride, she was none-the-less happy with the event.
“I am very pleased with the exposure that we received and with the turnout for the gathering. My only regret is that I was hoping for more showing of his friends that he grew up with, and spent time with, from around the local area,” said Khan.
“The news coverage and the turnout for the event were better than I ever expected. We had 38 [participants], 43 counting children. I would like to thanks all the ones that either walked or biked or met us at Skutz falls.”
Though no new leads have been established, Shah’s family are hoping that other witnesses, who may have seen Shah that evening 20 years ago, will step forward and talk to local RCMP at 250-749-6668.
