Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Jody was last seen on February 22, 2009 in Grand Prairie, Alberta. Jody had adopted a nomadic lifestyle of couch-surfing some time before her disappearance, but according to her family, it was very unusual for her to go more than a week without checking in. At the time, the family became worried after they hadnít heard from Smith-Hackett in five days.
She was last seen getting into a white car near the old York Hotel in Grande Prairie, a place she was known to frequent. Police say they believe there are people who know something about what happened to Hockett, but have chosen not to come forward. They say some of those people were in her social circle when she disappeared. Early on in the investigation, the family wanted the case to be moved from a missing person to a homicide but the RCMP were reluctant to do so without a crime scene or confession.
Hockett left behind two children.
