"Lawrence Come Home": Missing Lax Kw'alaams Man's Mom Speaks Out

Brittany Webster

No matter how old one gets, a mom always wants her son to come home - but as much as Kathy Maitland wants her missing son to return, she believes his homecoming will be his burial. 

Forty-two-year-old Lawrence Maitland went missing from Lax Kw'alaams in mid-July and his mother says the disappearance is out of the ordinary, especially because he left all his belongings behind. "He left his keys in the house, the doors were left unlocked, the lights and everything were on, he had his tablet plugged in charging and his wallet was left at home. And he was supposed to come and visit us and he was waiting for his GST to come in, which has been sitting in the post office since the 11th of July. So yeah, it's very suspicious."

Maitland thanks the community of Port Simpson for all their efforts, stating people only stopped looking upon request of the RCMP. And although she knows the RCMP have been searching since the report was made, she says she's been left in the dark about the investigation.

Lawrence Maitland is described as First Nations, 5'9", and 187 pounds. He has black hair in a slicked back mohawk and a black goatee.

"Lawrence come home, I miss you so very much," Maitland pleaded, asking her son to call or message her if he's still out there.

Prince Rupert RCMP have not responded to any requests from CFTK News for an update on the case, but the investigation is on-going. Anyone with information on the disappearance of Lawrence or his whereabouts are asked to call the Prince Rupert RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
