Man's family is offering a $25,000 reward
The family is offering a reward of $25,000 for information leading to Kevin's whereabouts or for information leading to the arrest and conviction of individuals responsible for his disappearance.
Kevin disappeared mysteriously Jan. 7 2013 and despite rumours and rumblings the police are still no closer to solving the mystery.
He was a good kid, he loved his family and friends, he was generous Valentyne says.
But Valentyne also knows that Kevin made a few missteps, apparently getting involved in illegal activities.
I think he was leaning towards making a change, she said. It's all about finding his whereabouts and getting some closure.
She's under no illusions that if a crime was committed it will necessarily ever be solved.
If they're going to solve the crime, they're going to solve the crime, she said. I've been worried about him for a long time.
Kevin was last seen Jan. 7, shortly before 2 pm, getting out of his 2008 grey Acura MDX in the area of North Templeton and Oxford Street in Vancouver.
Valentyne has plenty of reason to worry about what happened to her son, Kevin's wallet containing his driver's license and bank and credit cards was found, along with his car keys and cellphone. No Visa card activity has been reported since, and those closest to him have yet to hear from him.
Valentyne says though she hasn't seen her son for nine months, Kevin is still with her in spirit.
He's with me all the time, said Valentyne. So I choose to remember the best things about him.
So if anyone has any information, even the slightest thing that you may not feel is relevant, call the Vancouver Police Missing Person's Unit at 604 717 2530.
I'm sure someone out there knows what happened to Kevin, but without hard evidence, what can you do?
