Our dear son, John Vincent, was reported missing during the last week of September, causing our family in Ontario to be frantic with worry.

Our dear son, John F. Vincent, was reported missing during the last week of September, causing our family in Ontario to be frantic with worry.

The Nelson Police Department, Nelson Search and Rescue, the Nelson Star, and the community of Nelson worked together and our boy was found and his body was returned to us in Ontario. We thank you all so very much.

John was a good kid, held degrees in genetics and English, traveled widely and did a lot of good in this world.

A very special thanks to Cst. Jarrett Slomba from the Nelson Police Department whose caring and commitment in finding John formed a bridge from Nelson to Sault Ste. Marie that we will be forever grateful for.

Linda, Gary, and Kim Vincent, Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.
