Ettie Shurack started this petition to Surrey RCMP and

Bernard Grempel is a 28-year-old male who went missing while taking the bus on May 14, 2021 in Surrey, Canada. He is a beloved son, wonderful brother, doting uncle, loyal friend, talented children's coach, hardworking accountant, accomplished athlete, and all-around-wonderful-guy.

Unfortunately, the Surrey police (RCMP) has made several critical errors during the investigation, which resulted in overwritten CCTV footage, inaccurate information in their media release, and lack of follow-up with witnesses. Bernard has been missing for more than 7 weeks and the RCMP has yet to obtain camera footage from three critical intersections. At the 4 week mark, despite not exhausting all options, the RCMP informed Bernard's family that they would be entering the "next stage of the investigation" which entails a Coroners Inquiry (involving DNA samples, xrays, and dental records) and that they would follow-up on leads that come their way rather than pursue an active investigation. 

Bernard's family, friends, and community have been searching for him 24/7, using their personal resources and networks. Due to the Surrey RCMP's lack of follow-through on this case, the family has hired a Private Investigator. However, due to Canadian privacy laws, the P.I. does not have access to crucial information that only the RCMP can obtain. The family is pleading for the RCMP to resume the investigation with full efforts, in order to bring Bernard home safely and swiftly. We desperately ask the RCMP to serve and protect the community by utilizing their numerous resources on this case, and bring home a very special young man who has contributed significantly to his community.

Sincerely,

Ettie Shurack (Bernard's sister), Ella Kizelman (Bernard's mother), Michael Grempel (Bernard's father)
