On the second anniversary of the disappearance of Ronald Carlow, his sister Loretta made another heartfelt plea for any information in the case.

Ronald William Carlow left his residence in the 1200 block of Homer Street on June 20th, 2007, and was wearing a white t-shirt, brown and green camouflage shorts and brown flip-flops.  He was 38 years old, 5’11”, about 230 lbs., with a muscular build, light brown hair and green eyes.  He had a tattoo of a ring of hockey sticks around his left bicep.

Investigators discovered that Ron met with people involved in the drug trade shortly after he left his Yaletown apartment on June 20th, 2007 at 5:51 p.m., according to Detective Ron Symes of the VPD Homicide Squad.  He has not been seen since and both the family and investigators believe that Ronald has been the victim of a probable murder.

Anyone with information can call the VPD Major Crime Homicide Section at 604-717-2500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.


Losing someone you love is always difficult and painful.  Not being able to bring them home and bury them is unimaginable.  Not a day goes by where you are not wondering where he is and if only you could find him.  The phone rings and you pray that somebody stumbled upon him and this will be the day and it never is.

Two years ago, Ron, a loving son, brother, boyfriend, uncle and friend, walked out of his door never to be seen or heard from again.  It was a busy street in Yaletown at 5:45 p.m. – somebody saw something.  Ron deserves to be buried and put to rest and we deserve some peace and closure.

If anybody knows anything or saw Ron on the day of his disappearance, please come forward.  One day it could be you standing here and your family member gone.  Do the right thing and let us finally put Ron where he belongs.

We do not believe that Ron is alive and we do believe he was murdered and covering up or not coming forward with info makes you as bad as they are.  Please, we are begging, call Crime Stoppers with any information of Ron or any other missing person.
