Jesokah Adkens

Jesokah Adkens was a normal 17 year old. She had lots of friends, a steady boyfriend, and attended high school in Sooke, B.C.

Sooke, British Columbia - Jesokah was 17 when she went missing on Sept. 26, 2001. She was last seen at about 9:30 p.m. when she was waiting for a bus at the corner of Sooke Road and Idlemore Road in Sooke.

Her father said his daughter was well known and well liked and he couldn't imagine her taking off without telling anyone.

"She has a little puppy," said her father Clayten at the time. "If she was going to go off some place, she would bring the puppy here for us to look after. She didn't do that."

Jesokah was living with a friend at the time in downtown Sooke and was attending Edward Milne Community School.

Jesokah had lots of friends, a steady boyfriend, and attended high school in Sooke, B.C. Jesokah moved in with one of her girlfriends in August 2001 but she had a good relationship with her parents and kept daily contact with them after she moved out.

On September 26, 2001, Jesokah visited a friend in the afternoon then left shortly after 9pm to walk the short distance to the bus stop. She never boarded a bus and has not been seen since.

At the time of the disappearance, the police issued statements and undertook what they described as an intensive ground, air and water search of the area. Sooke RCMP soon announced foul play could not be ruled out. The Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit took over the investigation.

Police conducted searches under the Sooke River Bridge but they found nothing.

The bus stop where Jesokah was last seen is gone now, moved to a different location, but an overgrown memorial to her disappearance still marks the spot.
