Youth, 17, found in Ausable River
By Debora VAN BRENK, Sun Media, Tues., January 15, 2008
The body of a missing Crediton teenager has been found in the Ausable River.
Provincial police say their underwater search and recovery unit found the body of 17-year-old Ryan VANVALKENGOED about 12: 30 p.m. yesterday.
VANVALKENGOED was reported missing Friday night when he didn't return home from a friend's house in Crediton. It would ordinarily be a 10-minute walk.
His hat was found Saturday between his friend's house and a bridge spanning the Ausable River.
He was found in the river "just south of the bridge," said Ontario Provincial Police Const. Joanna VAN MIERLO.
Police launched a search by boat, air and land -- including a diver team and dog-rescue teams -- in a systematic search for the popular teen.
The cause of death has yet to be determined.
Police are warning people to steer clear of both riverbanks and waterways.
Meanwhile, William YATES, a London man last seen a week ago near his home near the Thames River, is still missing. Searchers have turned up no sign of him and police continue to investigate.
His disappearance is believed unrelated to a body found in the woods in East London on Sunday. Hikers found the body, which had been in the woods for some time.
London police have confirmed the body is that of a male but weren't releasing more information until an autopsy, scheduled for yesterday, could be completed.

Missing teacher's body identified
Bill YATES had gone missing January 8 from his home that backs onto the Thames River.
By Joe BELANGER, Sun Media, Mon., March 17, 2008
Bill YATES was a teacher of children, a mentor of teachers and a volunteer who cared for strangers.
That's how YATES, 61, was remembered yesterday after London police confirmed it was his body found Saturday in the Thames River near the Richmond Street bridge.
YATES had been missing from his Hamilton Road home, which backs onto the Thames, since January 8, when the river was running fast and high.
"As a teacher, he was a loving and compassionate man, a real pro," said Bruce TRAVNICEK, who taught with YATES at C.C. Carrothers school for three years in the late 1990s and remained Friends after YATES retired.
"He had such a great way of showing us (young teachers) how to show the children we cared."
The cause of his death has not been determined, police said, although a post mortem was to be conducted yesterday.
London police and a firefighter marine unit pulled YATES' body from the river just east of the bridge where Richmond Street turns into Carfrae Crescent about 12: 30 p.m.
Friends searched the area for days after YATES disappeared and even posted a reward.
TRAVNICEK's wife, Wendy, said she's hoping to convert any money collected for the reward fund into a trust for a student bursary in YATES's memory.
YATES taught Wendy TRAVNICEK, 47, when she was a Grade 7 student at Woodland Heights school.
"He was an amazing, wonderful man," she said.
"And he was an amazing teacher. We all knew he cared about us."
Bruce TRAVNICEK said YATES knew which children were having trouble and how to help, even it meant bringing some extra food, handing it to them discreetly.
"If one of his students had trouble, he'd spend hours searching for the right book, going through row after row of books in the library, to find just the right book to help them read," Bruce TRAVNICEK said.
"As a teacher, he would look at the big picture."
YATES, a private man who lived alone, was discovered missing when he failed to show up for his regular shift delivering Meals on Wheels.
YATES was an animal enthusiast and spent a lot of his time training his own dogs and judging at shows.
It was a shared love of dogs and cats that led to a bond between YATES and Arthur SKINNER, 64, a registered practical nurse who met YATES soon after moving to London in the early 1980s.
"Bill was honest, you could trust him and I admired that. He was a kind, gentle spirit. And there was great depth to his mind. He was very intelligent. I'm going to miss him."

Foul play not suspected
By Free Press Staff, Tues., March 18, 2008
Foul play is not suspected in the death of a retired London teacher whose body was found in the Thames River during the weekend, police said.
An autopsy did not determine the cause of death of Bill YATES, who went missing from his Hamilton Road home January 8. The coroner could not be reached for comment. It's not known if additional tests are being done to determine how YATES died. London police said cause of death was "undetermined, (however) no foul play is suspected."

YATES, William Edward
Of London, missing since January 8, 2008 was found Saturday, March 15, 2008. Beloved son of the late William and Frances YATES of Point Edward, Ontario. Loved brother of Judy (Ken) LAWSON, Barb (Dave) YOUNG, Dawn (Joe) SEWELL, John (Suzanne) YATES, Cathy YATES and Jeff (Bev) YATES. Predeceased by his brother Stephen YATES (1996.) Also survived by many nieces and nephews. Bill was born on November 26, 1946 and grew up in Point Edward, Ontario where he attended Bridgeview Public School. Following Bridgeview he attended Northern Collegiate in Sarnia where he graduated with an honors certificate in 1965. He then moved to London and completed his teacher's training in 1966. He went on to complete a B.A. at the University of Western Ontario in 1980 as a part time student. Bill was an excellent elementary school teacher and taught in London at Woodland Heights, Wilton Grove, Aberdeen and Tweedsmuir Public Schools from 1966 to 1996, when he retired. Bill had many other interests but his passion was dogs and obedience training. He had a number of dogs over the years (Kelly, Pal, Guynan, Thorn) and most recently Scout who were as devoted to him as he was to them. Bill became interested in dogs and training soon after he arrived in London. He and Pal competed in Obedience trials beginning in the 1970's. Bill went on to become a member of the Canadian Kennel Club and became an obedience trial judge in 1986. The family would like to thank the many Friends, neighbours and former colleagues who have offered their prayers and concern during Bill's disappearance. The volunteers who searched for him, the police search as well as the fire and rescue, was much appreciated. Friends may call at the McFarlane and Roberts Funeral Home, 2240 Wharncliffe Rd., S., Lambeth 519-652-2020 on Friday from 2-4 p.m. Visitation will also be held at the Chalmers Presbyterian Church 342 Pond Mills Rd., London on Saturday, March 22, 2008 from noon to 2: 00 p.m. where the Celebration of Bill's Life will follow at 2: 00 p.m. Chaplain Inge STAHL officiating. Cremation with interment Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens. Memorial contributions to Unicef or the Thames Valley Foundation - Bill Yates Fund would be appreciated by the family.

We miss you Mom. Two years have come and gone and we still have the same loss in our hearts as the day you died. Family gatherings are just not the same without you and Dad.
