Re-enactment: "reported missing several days later"

From LMY Wiki

Summary

The Crime Stoppers re-enactment video erroneously states Lisa was reported missing by her family to the Nanaimo RCMP several days later.

Prologue

Watch our video: RCMP vs Crime Stoppers (more info)

In 2003, RCMP spokesman[1] Const. Jack Eubank claimed that Crime Stoppers no longer produced re‑enactment videos[2] — a statement which was later proven to be a blatant lie.[3] This is one of several false or misleading statements made by Eubank and other RCMP members regarding Lisa's disappearance.[4]

In 2009 the re-enactment video was finally produced by Nanaimo & District Crime Stoppers with ShawTV[6], based on details provided by Nanaimo RCMP investigators.[3][5] Unfortunately, most of the information presented was wrong.[7]

Detail

…reported missing several days later… — clip from re‑enactment produced in 2009, based on largely-inaccurate details provided by RCMP. Animated GIF (Source)[5]

At 1m41s in the Crime Stoppers' re‑enactment video, narrator RCMP Cst. Gary O'Brien mistakenly states Lisa was reported missing by her family to the Nanaimo RCMP several days later.

The fact is, Joanne Young (Lisa's mother) contacted RCMP less than 8 hours later.[8]

This is especially insulting to Lisa's parents because it took several days for RCMP to take Lisa's disappearance seriously.

The re-enactment video was produced based on information provided to Crime Stoppers by Nanaimo RCMP.[3]
