In the early hours of Saturday December 20th 2009 in Prince George BC, a hangar belonging to Northern Thunderbird Air burned to the ground. Quick thinking employees managed to save the airplanes and most of the tools before the hanger collapsed.  workers conducted a search of the building before evacuating and determined the hanger was empty. However in the parking lot was the pickup truck

belonging to Vernon Martin owner of the hanger. Vernon has not been seen since. Due to the cold weather and the amount of water used to extinguish the fire, they were unable to search the ruins until spring thaw. A search by a forensic anthropologist four months later revealed that he was not killed in the blaze.

Sometime in 2010, individuals approached police, claiming they were molested as youths by Vernon Martin. Two charges each of indecent assault and gross indecency were laid in November of 2010. The warrants for Martin’s arrest were issued on November 24th and December 16th, 2010
