John Wesley Edwards
(Comox Valley RCMP)

After almost two years since he was last seen, Comox RCMP are now suspecting foul play in the investigation into a missing Comox man.

Wesley Edwards (“Wes”) was last seen in Courtenay on March 20th, 2020. 

At the time of his disappearance, police reported it was unusual for him to go for a long period of time without contacting friends or family.

Now, investigators have announced they suspect Wes may have died as the result of foul play. 

“Investigators have been actively following up on tips, interviewing witnesses and gathering evidence since the initial Missing Person report was received in 2020,” said Corporal Matt Holst, Comox Valley RCMP Major Crime Unit. 

“Recently, new information has surfaced that Wes may have died as the result of foul play. His disappearance remains a priority for us to investigate.” 

At the time of his disappearance, Wes was 45 years old. He is described as 5’9”, weighing approximately 145 pounds with blonde/grey hair and blue eyes.

Anyone with information into the disappearance of John Wesley Edwards (“Wes”), no matter how insignificant it may seem, is asked to contact the Comox Valley RCMP at 250 338-1321.
