When sadness turns to anger
Nanaimo Daily News, May 29, 2003 (Paul Walton)[1]

Young said he's not heard from the police in three months, and that they have no interest in his suggestion of a Crime Stoppers spot. How could a Crime Stoppers spot hurt? he asked… Eubank also said that Crime Stoppers no longer does re-enactments of crimes.

Lisa's parents were not provided regular updates about progress with the investigation into their daughter's disappearance.[1]

Even within the first year, three-month periods would pass without any contact from police.[2][3]

In 2003, investigators apologized for their lack of communication.[4] The only time we hear from them is when we call them, Joanne Young said in 2008.[3]
