Sandy Worobeck is frustrated with police investigations that have amounted to nothing in the case of her son Bradley, who has been missing for nearly a year.
Bradley Worobeck, 28, left the King Henry VIII pub on Jan. 17, 2008 around midnight, where he went for a drink after he finished work at the nearby Palomino Smokehouse. He phoned his mother to say he was on his way home but he hasn’t been seen since.
“They aren’t doing anything unless they get a call because they are so busy,” Worobeck said of police.
“In Calgary, there’s no missing persons unit like there is in Edmonton. There’s only one person, and when it first happened I’d be calling (the detective) and three days later he would get back to me.”
Worobeck plans to speak to Police Chief Rick Hanson and appeal to him to consider a missing persons unit for the city of Calgary.
“If I can’t help find my son, I’m going to help someone else find theirs,” she said.
There is a missing persons coordinator in Calgary, and his job is to direct different units in their investigation of a missing person.
The units working on Worobeck’s case were the major crime unit and a general investigative unit.
“We put in several hundred man hours on this case,” said Const. Scott Guterson. “We are essentially at the same spot where we were at the beginning of the investigation.”
The Worobeck’s say it’s completely out of character for their Bradley to just disappear and police have no evidence pointing to foul play.
“This is a case where he has fallen off the face of the earth and we simply don’t know what happened to him.”
Police are hoping for anyone with information in his Worobeck’s disappearance to come forward.
