Jodi Henrickson investigation still active: police

Nov. 20 will mark five months since the disappearance of Jodi Henrickson.

RCMP media relations officer Cpl. Dave Ritchie said last week he has no new developments to announce, but he did tell The Undercurrent the case is still being actively investigated.

The last reported sighting of the Squamish teen was in the early morning hours of June 20 after she had attended a party or parties.

A website put up by members of Jodi’s family marked the four-month anniversary of her disappearance last month. “It has now been four months since Jodi Henrickson went missing, with essentially no new information in the case,” the website says. “We are more or less in the exact same position as four months ago: knowing absolutely nothing.”

The website goes on to say it was not in their family member’s nature to “run away” or to “go any length of time without phoning home” and that when she left home “she left with a smile, with absolutely no negativity.”

The website also thanks people for their support and urges anyone who may know anything to call the Squamish RCMP.

On a number of occasions Cpl. Ritchie has told The Undercurrent that the investigative team is still treating the case as a missing persons file and, when asked, has declined to say if anyone was being actively investigated in her disappearance.

He has said they are “still just naming Jodi in the file.”

RCMP have said that cadaver sniffing dogs from Washington State were used in at least one of the numerous searches conducted on Bowen Island.

Cpl. Ritchie said any rumors people may have heard about the Henrickson case should be reported to allow the RCMP to “check it out and dispel it ourselves.”

Anyone wishing to pass on information can call the local detachment at 604-947-0516 or the Squamish RCMP at 604-892-6100. The anonymous Crime Stoppers tip number is 1-800-222-TIPS.
