"Walk for PJ" Being Held for Missing Hagwilget Man

John Crawford

As the family and friends of a young woman who died in mysterious circumstances last September prepare to gather in her memory in Smithers tomorrow, another family is planning a march regarding a man who's been missing for over seven years.

Perry Sebastian Junior -- also known as P.J. -- was last seen December 26th, 2011, near Southbank, south of Burns Lake. 

His cousin, Kim Sebastian, has organized "A Walk to Remember" for P.J.

Beginning today, an eagle feather will be carried from the Nee Tahi Buhn reserve, on the southside of Francois Lake to PJ's hometown of Hagwilget Village by next Friday. 



Meantime, in Smithers tomorrow, the family of Jessica Patrick Balczer plan to plant a cross at the Hudson Bay Mountain Road lookout, where the 18-year-old woman's body was found last September 15th -- and then march to Bovill Square for a ceremony to honour all the victims of the Highway of Tears.

The RCMP have never said how Jessica died -- or even if they consider it suspicious -- but say the investigation continues to be a priority and is active and ongoing.
