February 27, 2024, marked the 1st anniversary of Miguel Mack’s disappearance and the Southeast District Major Crime Unit (SED MCU) believes its important to remind the public that the investigation into this matter is ongoing.
There are people out there with knowledge of Miguel Mack’s disappearance and we are asking those individuals to come forward and contact the police, says Staff Sergeant Jason Smart, NCO i/c SED MCU.

To date, our investigation has shown that Miguel Mack’s disappearance was the result of foul play and that Miguel Mack is the victim of a suspected homicide. His disappearance and murder are senseless acts and this investigation remains a priority for the SED MCU. It is important to police that the person(s) responsible for his disappearance and murder be held accountable and it is even more important for Mr. Mack’s family to be provided with some semblance of closure so that they can begin to heal from this terrible ordeal.

As a recap, Miguel Mack, a 24-year-old Merritt resident, was last seen on February 27, 2023, and hasn’t been seen again. He was reported missing on March 3, 2023, when his family became concerned after not having seen or heard from him for several days.

Following his disappearance, investigators from SED MCU were called in to support the Merritt RCMP’s investigation and utilized RCMP Police Dog Services, Air Services and Forensic Identification Specialists (utilizing drones) and were supported by family volunteers. A large-scale search of Merritt and the surrounding area occurred, but unfortunately Mr. Mack has yet to be located.

The investigation remains a priority for the SED MCU and the Merritt RCMP, as evidenced by the continued police presence in the community over the past year. To protect the integrity of this active and ongoing investigation, no further details can be provided.

Anyone with information about the disappearance of Miguel Mack is asked to contact the SED MCU Tip Line at 1-877-987-8477.

Miguel Mack’s family will be hosting a community walk and would appreciate anyone coming out to show their support in the search for Miguel. The walk will take place on March 1, 2024 starting at 5:00 pm. The starting point is at 2337 Coutlee Ave with the tour going around Merritt and ending at Spirit Square.
