Without a Trace

Rod Pavan, age 44, of Stratford, Ontario, was last heard from on August 10, 2007.

His grey 2002 GMC Sierra pickup truck with a green cap was found abandoned in a remote wooded area north of Val Cote, in Northern Ontario, around September 17, 2007.

Despite search efforts by officers with the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), and their elite Emergency Response Team (ERT) from the Northeast Region, no trace of Rod Pavan has ever been found.

An ERT Team Leader said Rod's vehicle appeared to have been literally torn apart by one or more bear, with the contents scattered about the area
