206: MMIW: Nanaimo Girl Gone — Lisa Marie Young

Episode 206: Starting on the evening of June 29 and going into the early morning of June 30, 2002, Lisa Marie Young, a 21-year-old indigenous woman, was celebrating with friends in her hometown, Nanaimo, B.C. It was not only Canada Day long weekend, but also her friend Dallas’s birthday. The group went to several nightclubs and then attended a pair of house parties outside the city. Lisa left the party with a man the group had met just that evening. There were several frantic texts from Lisa shortly after her departure indicating she was afraid. Lisa Marie Young has not been heard from since. The man she was seen with while leaving the party was later identified as a local 27-year-old man named Christopher William Adair. Adair now refuses to speak to police and has left the country. Nanaimo RCMP presume Lisa has been murdered and her remains have never been found. In the days before the recording of this podcast, an anonymous donor contacted advocates for Lisa offering $50,000 reward to locate her remains. It’s time to bring Lisa home. Someone knows where she is. Maybe you can help.

When she went missing, Lisa Marie Young was 21 years old. She was 5’4” (163 cm) tall and weighed 115 pounds (52 kg). She had long dark brown hair, brown eyes. Lisa has a tattoo of a band of flowers with a heart in the middle that circles her upper right arm. She was wearing a black skirt, black top, black high boots and a silver hoop necklace.
