27th anniversary for the disappearance of Michael Dunahee

Parents hosting annual fun run on March 25

It’s every parent’s worst nightmare.

On March 24, 1991, at 12:30pm, Michael Dunahee was playing on the outdoor equipment at the Blanshard Elementary School.

Michael was being monitored by his parents who – for a few split seconds – diverted their attention.

Then, he was gone.

It’s been 27 years since that day, and the search for Michael continues.

“There’s always new technology coming out, tools that solve mysteries like this,” said Crystal Dunahee, Michael’s mother.

“He’d be 32 years old now, so we’re looking for a young adult… you’re constantly looking.”

On Sunday March 25, the Dunahee family is hosting the annual 5 km fun run and walk to raise money for Child Find BC.

Participants are to assemble at the Esquimalt Rec Centre at 9:30 a.m. Online pre-registration is encouraged.

Micheal is blond with blue eyes and had begun to show freckles.

At the time of his disappearance, he was 3 foot tall and weighed 51 pounds.
