In the fall of 1999, 16 year old Matthew Alan RICHARD was hitchhiking on Highway 1 (the Trans-Canada Highway) with a friend when he went missing. The pair was on their way back to Canmore, Alta when they stopped at the Skyline Esso Truck Stop (mid way between Revelstoke and Sicamous BC). For some unknown reason, Matthew wandered off from that location without his friend’s knowledge and hasn’t been seen since.
