Victoria police say man who resembles Michael Dunahee is not the missing boy

VICTORIA – DNA test results show that a man who bears an uncanny resemblance to a composite drawing of Michael Dunahee is not the same person who vanished over 20 years ago.

Victoria Police say they have received the DNA results from a sample willingly given by the man in the Vancouver area who had been identified through a tip.

News of the man, who has not been identified, came in July, but police said the DNA testing was routine and that they’d done similar samples before as officers continue to try to solve the long-running mystery.

Police say they have contacted the Dunahee family and the man to tell them of the results and say Dunahee family members are requesting privacy.

Dunahee vanished in 1991 from a Victoria school playground while his mom was playing rugby in the field nearby.
