It’s been two years since Sam Noh’s father Shin disappeared.
Even now, the family is still looking for closure.
Sam spoke with Shane Foxman on CKNW Weekend, saying his family is tormented there’s still been no trace of his father.
“I’m just surprised we still have no trace of his whereabouts. We were hoping by now we would have an idea of where he would be. So it’s still extremely devastating and it’s hard to see my mom go through a tough day today.”
Today, the family and friends will take part in the Second Annual Walk for Shin, a charity event urging the province to introduce a special Silver Alert system to help find missing citizens suffering from dementia.
The province wasn’t ready to endorse Noh’s system proposal.
“I encourage the government to continue the discussion about the silver alerts. Wondering is not going away. 6 out of 10 Alzheimer patients will wonder. This issue needs to be addressed”.
The family believes a Silver Alert system would’ve helped in the search for Shin Noh, an Alzheimer patient who stepped out from his Coquitlam home and went out for a walk two years ago, but never returned.
