July 12, 2018 – Maas Search Returns to Annan

As we close in on the 30th anniversary of Lisa Maas’ disappearance, we are actively digging at a number of sites. Today we dug up a well in close vicinity of the house in Annan where Lisa was allegedly seen leaving in her vehicle at around 4:30 a.m. on July 18, 1988. As far as we know, the well has never been investigated by police. We also dug up a cement pad which ground-penetrating radar indicated as a location of interest. While we did not find anything significant at this location, it is another step closer in the search for the remains of Lisa Maas.

March 31, 2018 – Team from Please Bring Me Home begins looking into disappearance of Joseph Moore

We are now officially looking into the missing persons case of Joseph Moore from Kincardine. Joe was last seen on October 31, 2012.

During that day, he was seen hanging around the Davidson Centre in Kincardine, Ontario. At the time, he was living at Princess Court on Princess Street. Upon a search of his home, no evidence was found that Joe was planning on leaving. Approximately a year after Joe went missing, a black coat washed up just north of Boiler Beach, at the end of Bruce Avenue. It has not been confirmed that this was Joe’s coat, however, the family believes it matches a coat that Joe was wearing around the time he went missing.

If you have any information about this case please submit a tip to Crime Stoppers or this website.
