Two years have passed in the case of a missing Fredericton man with only a few, puzzling details known about the last moments before his disappearance.
Anthony James Ward was 53 when he vanished on the night of Feb. 13, 2015.
He was last seen purchasing a coffee and hand warmers in a community far from home where he had no known connections.
"We still do not know what happened," said Peggy Ward, sister to the Enbridge Gas executive.
"The case is not active," said Fredericton Police Sgt. Dwight Doyle Thursday. "It's been closed since Nov. 23, 2015. It will remain that way pending new information."
Days after Anthony Ward was reported missing, his 2010 Toyota Camry was found abandoned in a church parking lot in the village of Chipman, N.B. Peggy Ward has said her brother had no known contacts there.
The owner of an Irving gas station has stated that security cameras recorded Ward making small talk with a pair of cashiers before slipping into the February night at around 9:30 p.m on a Friday – his last recorded appearance.
Police stated they later found half of that cup of coffee in his car, frozen solid.
They have not released the security footage of Ward to the public.
Ward who has been described as kind and generous, had several vacations planned and paid for before he disappeared.
Peggy Ward still wants answers. She hopes someone may have seen or heard something that may reveal her brother's whereabouts, but has yet to realize that what they know may be relevant.
"Perhaps at this point somebody has seen something, or remembered something, or is putting and drawing connections between things that they haven't thought of before," said Peggy Ward on the phone from Toronto. "That might give us more clues. That would be helpful."
