Thirteen years ago, Tracey Fry’s husband went missing and never returned.
And at the beginning of this month, her son has dropped from sight, leaving the family in a dreadful state of déja vu.
On Valentine’s Day in 2000, Tracey Fry, a Delta resident, woke to find her husband Glenn Fry gone. The second she realized he was missing, she had an awful feeling he was gone for good.
“I woke up in a start at 7 a.m. that morning (and) I had a really hard feeling in my gut,” Tracey told The Leader Tuesday.
Glenn Fry didn’t show up for work that day, and he remains missing.
As to whether he left on his own volition – or met with foul play – Tracey is not sure.
“Through the years, I’ve gone through everything that you can imagine,” she said. “There’s times when I think he’s gone, there’s times when I think he just skipped out.”
In either case, she knew in her heart from the outset that he wasn’t coming back.
She doesn’t have that same feeling about her son Kevin Fry, who was last seen on Jan. 1.
But she says it’s still hard to separate the search for her son with the fact that her husband is still missing without a trace.
“It’s heartbreaking,” Tracey said. “It’s one thing to lose your husband, but to lose your son? My God, you didn’t think it could get any worse.”
She’s pleading with the public to keep an eye out for Kevin.
“Just bring my boy home. Somebody bring my boy home.”
Kevin Fry, a 20-year-old Caucasian, was reported missing on Jan. 4, three days after he was last seen in the area of 157 Street and 108 Avenue.
He is 6’1”, 155 lbs, with brown/dirty blond hair and green eyes.
When he was last seen, he was wearing a plaid shirt, ball cap, jeans, red-and-black checkered winter coat, and a red backpack.
He has a tattoo of a sword with two snakes wrapped around it on his inner left forearm.
Kevin has no known medical health or addiction issues and did not pick up his last paycheque from his employer.
It is unusual for him to fail to stay in contact with his family. He does not have a vehicle and likely uses transit or friends to get around.
Tracey believes he may be in the Lower Mainland, however, he has relatives in Kamloops where he may also be staying.
Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Kevin is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or Crime Stoppers, if you wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
