A Couple From BC Last Seen On Halloween Are Missing & Police Say It's 'Out Of Character'

Family members of a missing couple from B.C. and police are becoming increasingly concerned for the couple's whereabouts.

Surrey RCMP say Matthew Sawatzky and Janaye Sawatzky (née Sears) were reported missing on October 31.

They were last seen at a residence in the 14500 block of 67A Avenue around 9:00 a.m. the same day.

Family and police have been unable to make contact with Matthew or Janaye and are "very concerned for their wellbeing as this is out of character."

Matthew, 23, is white, 5 feet, 10 inches and 170 pounds with brown hair, hazel eyes and a beard. Janaye, 22, is described as white, 5 feet, 4 inches and 120 pounds with blonde hair and hazel eyes.

Janaye has multiple tattoos, the most visible being mountains on the inside of her left wrist. The couple is believed to be traveling in a 2021 black Dodge Ram with the B.C. license plate RS0114.

Anyone with information that could assist with locating Matthew and Janaye is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.

UPDATE: On November 4, police said in a statement to Global News that the couple was found alive and well.

This dog in B.C. busted $2 million worth of drugs that were being smuggled across the Canadian border, and he looks so proud of himself in the photo.

The dog, named Garner, is a police dog who is now retiring, but he'll definitely be missed. The RCMP released a statement about the beloved pup, who is saying goodbye after almost six years of work.

There were some pretty unbelievable 911 calls made in B.C. last year, and a lot of them were definitely not emergencies.

In a year that was filled with many actual emergency situations, including wildfires and flooding, these seven calls seem that much more ridiculous to hear about.

The police were called to the liquor store in Port Moody, B.C. around 5:15 p.m. on January 5. The police report said that the teens were all "clearly" underaged, but they were trying to buy liquor anyway.
