The BC RCMP says 52-year-old Trent Larsen has been charged with the second-degree murder of 27-year-old Angel Fehr

Police charged Larsen in the 19-year-old case after Fehr's body was found earlier this month near 100 Mile House

ABBOTSFORD (NEWS 1130) – Nearly two decades after a pregnant mother of two disappeared, a charge has been laid in her death.

The BC RCMP says 52-year-old Trent Larsen has been charged with the second-degree murder of 27-year-old Angel Fehr, who was five-months pregnant.

She was last seen leaving a family Easter dinner in Abbotsford in April of 2000 with Larsen, planning to drive home to Kamloops. Fehr was reported missing in June of that year after failing to attend several appointments, including a prenatal exam.


She had two daughters, and investigators said early on that it was out of character for her to be out of contact with them for so long.

Police say Larsen was charged shortly after Fehr’s body was found earlier this month on a rural property near 100 Mile House. The property owner, who police say had nothing to do with her death, assisted in the recovery of the body.

One of Angel’s daughters said in a statement: “I would like to thank the RCMP for their hard work and dedication to finding [my] mother. The family is also extremely grateful for the property owner and his kindness and generosity through the search.”

Larsen was arrested on Sept. 15, and is scheduled to appear in court in Kamloops at the end of the month.
