WATCH: Jordan Holling was 17 years-old when he was last seen in the early morning hours of Oct. 16, 2017. His family is certain he didn’t run away and the only trace of him was his skateboard that was found near a Campbell River highway.
The close-knit family of Jordan Holling will never give up looking for their son, grandson, brother, cousin and nephew but one year later there are still no answers after his sudden disappearance last fall.
“For me, today is similar to all the other days I would say,” said his father Morgan Holling. “Just no answers moving forward. It’s just another day not knowing but it’s been a long time now, it’s been a year.”
“It’s not for me to speculate because I don’t know and that’s the worst part, it’s not knowing,” said Jordan’s mother Andrea Holling.
On the night of October 15th, last year, Jordan was hanging out with two friends in an apartment on 16th avenue. They did it regularly and nothing seemed out of sorts.
“Nothing to signify that he was probably going to disappear. We were all having a good time.” said his friend Raven Baughman in a November 2017 interview with CHEK News.
Then after midnight, between 1 and 2 a.m. on Oct. 16, Jordan left his friends and said he was walking a short distance to his mother’s home but he never showed up. When he didn’t show up for work later that day his family called police.
His skateboard was found near highway 19 and 14th avenue and he was seen on video surveillance in the area without his skateboard.
It became the focal point for searchers.
Now one year later his friend Sayde Coffill just wants to know what happened to Jordan.
“We joked around about a couple of intense things but there was nothing to signify that anything was wrong,” said Coffill.
Posters have been put up from Campbell River to the mainland but the Hollings don’t think Jordan ran away.
They believe police are doing everything they can but it’s been a gruelling 12 months that includes false messages on social media indicating Jordan has been found.
“That’s not the case, my son has not been found,” said Andrea Holling. “He’s still missing and we’re still actively looking for him.”
The family believes someone knows something about Jordan’s disappearance and they’re asking anyone with information to call the Campbell River RCMP at 250-286-6221
