Finding Miles Meester

Please help us find Miles!

20 year old Miles Meester was last seen on February 6, 2020 in the late evening. Search and Rescue teams spent three days searching Cortes Island. Family, friends and community members continue to search for this lovely young man. 

Miles is much loved by his family, friends and coworkers.

We need to do whatever it takes to bring Miles home. 

Your financial contribution will go towards the following items:

- Food and accommodation for volunteers
- Accommodation and associated costs for bringing specially trained search and rescue dogs from Alberta 
- Accommodation and associated costs for bringing specially trained search and rescue dogs from within BC
- Accommodation and associated costs for infrared drone pilots

Our hope is that we find Miles today. However, we don’t know how long this is going to take and want to be prepared to take advantage of any opportunities that arise that will help us find him sooner. 

Any funds left over after Miles is found will go towards getting him the support he needs. 

Get updates on the community wide search on the Help Find Miles Meester  facebook page.

Deep gratitude for your support.


Who is Rebecca Lennox? Isn't this a fundraiser for Miles Meester?

This is a fundraiser to FIND Miles Meester, so we can't actually make him the beneficiary. Rebecca Lennox is a long-time friend of the family, and "auntie" to Miles and his cousins Aspen, Carmanah, August and Minnie. Because Cortes Island is very small, and no longer has a local credit union, we needed to find someone with an existing account that was not in use. Rebecca, aka Auntie Bex, offered her unused personal account. Thanks Bex! Funds will be provided to the search team via cash for local on-island expenses, cheque and some service providers will be paid directly.
