Please Help Us Find Willy Lynksey <3

The family of 21 year old Willy Lynksey is asking for help in the disappearance of their loved one.

Willy was last seen at his apartment in Vancouver on the evening of April 11, 2017.

CCTV showed Willy boarding a Greyhound bus to Edmonton alone around 7 p.m. on April 12. He checked into Century Casino and Hotel the following day.

There was a cellphone ping around Calgary on April 14. That was enough for Vancouver police to deem him safe and close their investigation. But the Lynskey family has still not heard from Willy.

The Lynskeys have received no word from their son. His social media and bank accounts haven’t been active, and none of his friends have heard from him. The Whistler RCMP opened its own missing persons file in May.


“All of our efforts to confirm his well-being since that point have been negative,” said Whistler RCMP Staff Sgt. Paul Hayes. “We can’t say if he’s in Edmonton, Calgary or if he’s back in British Columbia, so we are looking for an appeal of help for anybody who has information they can share about Mr. Lynskey and his whereabouts since April of this year.”

Most recently, Willy’s identification has been located in Banff, Alberta. His mother, Heather Lynksey immediately went to Banff, but it was discovered that his ID had likely been there for a while.

Multiple tips have came in from the Calgary and Edmonton areas of Alberta. If you believe you have seen Willy, please call the Whistler RCMP at (604) 932-3044 immediately quoting file #2017-2737.

A Facebook page has been set up to assist Willy’s family called MISSING: William “Willy” Lynskey. Please feel free to join the group to show your support and see up to date information.

Thank you in advance to everyone who will share this and help this young man get back home safely <3
