Yarmouth, Nova Sotia — The Province of Nova Scotia is offering a reward in the amount of up to $150,000 for information leading to the missing persons case of Zachery Lefave, who disappeared early in the morning of New Year's Day 2021.
Lefave is described as white, 5'9", 175 pounds, with blue eyes, brown hair and brown facial hair.
Lefave's cousin Kimberly Morton is certain that somebody knows something about his disappearance, and she's hoping the offer of will lead to some information.
"We 100 per cent suspect foul play," Morton said. "We've been, probably for the last year and a half, have been trying to get the major crimes unit to make a media release, stating that they also believe that it is foul play, that there were suspicious circumstances or something of the sort."
Zachery Lefave joins a list of more than a hundred other unsolved cases in the provincial program. Five cash awards have been paid out since the program started in 2006.
Morton said local businesses have already contributed to a reward of $8,000 that's been available, without success. She's hoping the larger reward will make a difference.
In addition to the rewards and the Facebook page, Morton said the family continues to put up posters and hold marches to keep his name in people's thoughts.
Investigators believe there are people who have information not yet offered to police that could result in locating Lefave.
Any person with information regarding this case of Zachery Lefave should call the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program at 1-888-710-9090.
The reward is payable in Canadian dollars. Employees of law enforcement and correctional agencies are not eligible to collect this reward.
