The Stewart RCMP is continuing the investigation into a historical missing person’s file. Gerard KRAUSNIG, from Smithers BC, was reported missing after a boating mishap, while fishing the Nass River, near the Meziadin River junction, on July 2nd 1977.
Missing person’s files are never concluded, until the missing is located, no matter how long it takes stated Cpl Kevin WRIGHT Stewart RCMP detachment Commander.
We are attempting to locate any of Mr. KRAUSNIG’s family members, and believe that he may have had a son born in 1977, in Smithers BC.
In the event that human remains are recovered, and the investigators have DNA from family members on file, it is a way to identify missing persons and help bring closure to the families.
If you have any information that can assist in locating Mr. KRAUSNIG’s family, please contact the Stewart RCMP at 250-636-2233 and cite file number 1977-103.
