Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Andrew Nicoll, who lived on an acreage in Breton, was declared missing on April 21, 2014, after he failed to show up at his work, which was out of character. He was last seen on April 20, 2014. His daughter last saw him at a BBQ at his property on April 19, 2014, two days before he was declared missing. She then spoke with him briefly through text messaging the next day. Her last text, sent at 8 p.m. on the 20th, did not receive an answer back.
All of his items were still at his home, his car was still there and his ID. There were no signs of struggle. He had been working on his deck the afternoon of the 20th. When his family went to his property the following morning, after receiving the call from his work, they found his chainsaw was still set up as if it were just about to be refilled.
Extensive searches of his property and the surrounding county were conducted by ground and air. Mr. Nicoll has not been located. Search dogs potentially found some evidence that there may have been a deceased person on the property. However a body was never located and the potential evidence could not be confirmed. After months of searching with nothing to show for it, the searches stopped in September of that year.
Nicoll worked in law enforcement, both in his native England and in Alberta. He also worked as a volunteer firefighter. He was a quiet, well-liked man in the community with no enemies.
