Family seeks help to find missing loved one

Jody Ann Frocklage went missing on Kalum Lake on Dec. 21, 2014

Dear Sir:

When my dear sister Jody Ann Frocklage went missing on Kalum Lake on Dec. 21, 2014 it was like my heart sank into my chest.

I was numb in disbelief, wondering whether to scream or cry or lash out at something.

I kept thinking they would find her. The hours painfully went by waiting for that phone call that she had been found or, the one no one wants to receive, that she was dead.

The worst of all was when the search was called off. Feelings of great sadness and anger came over me. Jody can’t be gone forever. Not like this.

My family and myself flew to Terrace to be with Jody’s family to mourn our great loss. Visiting Kalum Lake was extremely beautiful yet haunting for me. A memorial was held at the Caledonia Secondary School. It was so hard that day but all of our family never had closure. Our family needs that.

Our family decided to turn to Gene and Sandy Ralston for help. They want nothing more than to use their sonar equipment to find Jody who is lost at the bottom of Kalum Lake where she does not belong.

To raise money we’re calling the campaign “Bringing Jody Home“.

The Denzil Knights of Columbus #3920 with the Knights of Columbus Charitable Foundation are partnering with the Frocklage family.

Payments can be made to “Bringing Jody Home”, Knights of Columbus Charitable Foundation, 214 Avenue M, South Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. S7M 2K4.

For online payments, check “http://www.saskkofcfoundation.com”. Click on “Donate Now” and follow the prompts. For more information contact Marvin DeSchryver at 306-358-4334

Charitable receipts will be issued for donations over $10. We are excepting donations until May 31, 2015 and expect the search to take place during the same period.

Any remaining monies once all expenses are paid for Jody’s search will be donated to Terrace Search and Rescue toward the purchase of their own sonar equipment. We do not want anyone to feel that pain of being told all search options have been exhausted.

We also would like to place a memorial bench at Kalum Lake in honour of Jody.

Simonne Reiter,

Macklin, Saskatchewan
