Police seek public’s assistance in solving homicide

January 1, 2022, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia… Police continue to seek the public’s assistance in solving the homicide of 18-year-old Andrea King.

January 1, 2022 marks 30 years since Andrea King went missing after arriving at the Halifax Stanfield International Airport on January 1, 1992. Eighteen-year-old Andrea King flew to Halifax from New Westminister, B.C. with plans of travelling and working in Nova Scotia. Andrea was last heard from on January 1, 1992, when she called a family member in British Columbia from the Halifax Stanfield International Airport to advise them that she arrived safely and that she would call them back the following day with an address where she would be staying. She was not heard from again.

On January 4, 1992, Ms. King’s family reported her missing to the RCMP in Surrey, B.C. Despite a year-long missing person investigation being conducted in both Halifax and New Westminister, B.C., no trace of Andrea was found and police were unable to positively identify anyone who had contact with her after her arrival in Nova Scotia.

On December 22, 1992, the skeletal remains of Andrea King were located in a wooded area in Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia, near the Sackville Business Park. The Homicide Unit of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division took over the investigation.

The Government of the Province of Nova Scotia is offering rewards of up to one hundred and fifty thousand dollars ($150,000) for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the murder of Andrea King. The Provincial Rewards line is 1-888-710-9090.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Homicide Unit of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division at (902) 490-5331.
