Seven years ago, during the evening of November 28, 2012, VicPD was contacted about a woman acting oddly in front of the Empress Hotel. Officers located Emma Fillipoff and spoke at length with her. After ensuring her well-being, Emma was allowed to continue on her way. A few hours later Emma was reported as missing and has not been heard from or seen since.
Since her disappearance, there has been an extensive investigation but investigators have been unsuccessful in determining what may have happened to Emma. Investigators suspect Emma may have made her way to the West Shore area after speaking with officers.
Emma’s disappearance continues to be actively investigated. Hundreds of tips have been received from across the country but none of these have been confirmed sightings of Emma. VicPD is asking for the public’s assistance in solving this mystery.
If you see Emma Fillipoff, or have any information about where she may be, please contact the VicPD non-emergency line at 250-995-7654 or your local police department. Information can also be anonymously provided through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
VicPD are asking for members of the public to contact them if they have any information about a stabbing in Beacon Hill Park in 2014.
Just after midnight on Sunday, Jan. 12, 2014, VicPD officers were called to Beacon Hill Park near Dallas Road. Once there, they found a 48-year-old man with stab wounds. The man was rushed to the hospital and remained in hospital for 10 days after the attack.
Police said the attack happened near a public shelter adjacent to the dog off-leash area on the Dallas Road Waterfront Trail, along Dallas Road near Finlayson Point. Investigators believe that the victim and the attacker were not known to each other. Robbery is not considered a motive.
The victim is also asking anybody with information to come forward.
“I was significantly impacted by this, and I still deal with the after effects, both physical and emotional, today,” the victim, who wishes to remain anonymous, says. “I hope that anyone with any information will come forward to find the person who did this to me.”
The suspect is described by police as a white man, 20 to 30-years-old, 6’0,” 200 pounds, physically fit, with short red hair, a short red full beard and green eyes. He was wearing a mustard or green/yellow coloured hoodie, grey pants and skater/board shoes. A sketch of the suspect was completed and released to the public on Jan. 29, 2014.
“Investigations such as these typically require that one piece of information to turn the tide in the investigation and as of today, we have not received that,” Investigative Services Division Insp.Keith Lindner said in a statement.
“We’re confident that someone out there has information that would allow us to move the investigation forward and to help identify the person(s) responsible and put them before the courts.”
