He checked into the Century Casino Hotel, in Edmonton, the next day.

Cell tower records show that his phone pinged a Calgary cell tower on April 14, which led to Vancouver police closing their investigation.

His social media and bank accounts haven't been used since he went missing, and in May 2017 Whistler RCMP opened a missing persons file.

Sometime in the fall, his ID was found in between the cushions of a couch in Banff's Cascade Plaza mall. The maintenance worker that found the ID reported it on a Facebook site, but it wasn't returned to police until early March 2018.

It just becomes a big question again," Lynskey's mother said.

"Our whole hope is to find him, or find traces of where he's gone and hopefully find him safe. I mean this little town is so close to Whistler. It's very similar and it seems to me to be a comfortable place like Whistler. It seems like a logical place for him to be," she said.

Const. Steve LeClair of Whistler RCMP said the investigation into Lynskey's disappearance is still active.

"His identification was there, which would tend to lead us to believe he was there at one point," LeClair said.

He said there was a possible sighting of Lynskey in December in Fort Saskatchewan, Alta.

Lynskey's mom said she just wants her son to know there are people who care about him.
