Julia Strobach Missing: B.C. RCMP Search Courtenay Sites

Julia Strobach, who has a three-year-old son, vanished on Halloween 2013.

Fifty RCMP officers are searching two Vancouver Island locations Tuesday in connection with the disappearance of Julia Strobach who vanished on Halloween in 2013.

Investigators are conducting "meticulous" ground searches at two Comox Valley green spaces as a "result of information gathered through the ongoing investigation into Julia’s disappearance," said an RCMP news release.

However, police said they could not release more specific details on what they are looking for, or why they're focusing on the sites in the 4600 block of Headquarters Road, and the 1000 block of Ryan Road in Courtenay.

Strobach, who was 27 when she disappeared, has a three-year-old son.

She was last seen in the early evening of Oct. 31, 2013 in the 1000 block of Braidwood Road in Courtenay.
