On Jan. 8, local Mounties and Search and Rescue are leading a search for Duncan. Community members from Binche, Nak’azdli Whut’en and Fort St. James are helping in the search that started at Cottonwood Park and will go until the Nak’azdli river.
Duncan’s sister, Jean Felix was present at the search in the morning, and said any kind of information about her sister’s whereabouts or state of mind on the day she went missing would be helpful.
