In late 2023, 24-year-old Cole Hosack was working to recover from an exceptionally difficult year with multiple losses within his family. Cole and his fiancee, Morgan, were temporarily staying in Prince George, British Columbia. Cole decided to set out for a fresh start in Medicine Hat, Alberta. The plan was for Cole to start a new job, settle in, and later move Morgan out there to live with him. Cole's friend, Shelby, picked him up in Prince George, and they intended to stop in Shelby's hometown of Dawson Creek to visit for a few days before driving to Medicine Hat. Everything was going according to plan until New Year's Eve. Cole and Shelby went out that evening to celebrate the holiday. They stopped at a couple of bars in Dawson Creek and ended up at the Lonestar Bar. The place was bustling that evening as everyone was ushering in the new year. Not long after midnight, Shelby briefly stepped outside, and upon her return, Cole was nowhere to be found. Shelby waited around, searching the crowd for her friend, but he had vanished. She drove around Dawson looking for Cole, but there were no signs of him. Eventually, Shelby returned to her family home and waited to hear from her friend, but that call never came.
