Langley man missing since Nov. 10

RCMP issue public appeal

A 32-year-old man from Langley’s Willoughby neighbourhood is missing, last seen Nov. 10.

Langley RCMP are seeking the assistance of the public to locate Joel Reed Goddard.

Goddard was last seen at his residence in Willoughby on Nov. 10.

He is driving a black GMC Terrain (as pictured).

Goddard is described as Caucasian, 6’0” tall, 172 lbs., with blonde hair and blue eyes. When last seen he was wearing a long sleeved white cotton shirt and grey sweatpants.

To be gone for this length of time is out of character for Joel and his family is concerned for his welfare. Anyone with information that might assist police to locate Joel Goddard, is asked to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.

His family has taken to social media to help spread the word. An online post about the father of a newborn said there will be a search in Langley on Sunday and that they believe he is somewhere in the Lower Mainland.

“Please share with any groups, communities, establishments, or friends you know in that area onward,” the online post said. I”f anyone feels called to print and post this poster around town, all eyes and support help.”

A family friend has set up a GoFundMe page which is halfway to its $10,000 goal. The money would support his wife, Susie, and their newborn but also help fund a search.

“We would like to rent a helicopter ($1200) to get an aerial search done, search parties, bring in search dogs anything we can,” said organizer Kristina Walker.

Her post said he’s creative, funny, kind, smart, adventurous, courageous, loving, and loved by many.
