On Wednesday, Langley RCMP issued a call for information about a man who disappeared 12 years ago.
On March 13, 2001, 24-year-old Scott Anthony Devuyst disappeared.
Devuyst was last seen leaving his residence in the 5800 block of 248 Street around 11:30 at night. He said he was going to a local corner store in Aldergrove and he would return in five minutes. He never did.
Police said Devuyst was known to be a drug user.
The written statement said it was “possible he has chosen to be ‘missing’ or he may have encountered trouble as a result of his involvement in the drug trade.”
He is described as 6’ tall, with blonde hair, green eyes, and a scar above his left eyebrow. Devuyst was wearing black and white Adidas shoes, a black Umbro toque, green cargo pants and a gray jacket.
His family would like to know what happened so they can have closure, said RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks.
“Throughout the years, police have received little to no information to assist with this investigation,” Marks said.
“Langley Serious Crime investigators are hopeful we will soon know the truth.”
Potential sources are asked to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
