RNC Const. Steve Curnew speaks to reporters about the search for Joshua Miller.
Over the weekend, more than 40 search and rescue workers scoured an area off Mount Scio Road in
St. John’s, based on new information, according to Const. Steve Curnew.
“There was nothing found,” he said.
Miller, 20, went missing in February 2013 after a night on George Street. He was put in a cab by friends and got out in the Stavanger Drive area wearing only jeans and a T-shirt.
He vanished without a trace.
Since then, the police have conducted seven different searches for Miller — six in the Stavanger Drive area, plus the one this weekend off Mount Scio Road — but have no firm leads.
The weekend search happened after police talked to somebody who knew Miller, who said he sometimes visited the Mount Scio Road area.
Curnew said the police still consider it to be an active file, and they’re still looking for tips to aid the search.
“As time passes, of course, it’s going to be harder and harder to find someone, for one thing. But then, you know, the information tends to whittle out after a while, so again, we’re pleading with anyone who has any information whatsoever to contact us,” he said. “We have a tip line now established — 729-8800 — for any information”
