Though billboards across the prairies have only drummed up a few tips about the disappearance of Dylan Koshman, his family says they’ll stop at nothing to find him.
Space on massive billboards in Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg and Saskatoon were donated by a sign company at the end of December.
The missing 21-year-old’s mother, Melanie Alix, told Metro Edmonton yesterday that when the signs come down at the end of the month, family members will step up their game to find him.
“We’ll do it because he wouldn’t quit on us, I know he wouldn’t. He’s the type of man that would always be there for his family,” she said through tears.
Koshman was recently added to the Alberta Missing Persons website, a comprehensive database of Albertans who have been missing for a significant period of time, and high-profile missing persons.
Since its launch almost one year ago, the site has aided in solving a number of cases, including identifying human remains, said RCMP Cpl. Wayne Oakes.
Though Alix knows her son may not be found alive, she’s desperate for closure.
“A person does not just disappear off the face of the Earth. I want him to come home whether he’s alive or not. This is like living in a Twilight Zone time warp,” she said.
