32-year-old Ashley Simpson disappeared from Salmon Arm, British Columbia in late-April of this year. Friends and family became concerned when the St. Catharines, Ontario native – who had been living in B.C. after working the winter season at a Pink Mountain inn – dropped off of social media and failed to maintain contact with her loved ones, atypical behavior from a young woman known for keeping in touch with those close to her.
For five months, Ashley’s family and friends have continued to search for the missing woman while upholding hope that they will see her again. Visits to B.C. from Ontario have become frequent for loved ones of Ashley seeking answers.
In May, Ashley’s father, John, announced that investigators suspected foul play in his daughter’s disappearance and were treating the case as a homicide investigation.
John Simpson kindly spoke with me on the afternoon of September 29 to discuss Ashley’s vanishing and other details surrounding the case.
