PORT MOODY (NEWS 1130) – A Facebook page once dedicated to the search for a missing woman from Port Moody now has a new name and a new purpose: “Justice for Trina.”
Trina Hunt’s remains were found in Hope in late March, prompting a homicide investigation and ending a high-profile community search.
In a statement, the Ibbott family writes they’re touched by the outpouring of love and support they’ve received during the last few days, and that they’re optimistic the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team will bring them some answers soon.
“We are profoundly touched by the outpouring of love and support over these last few days,” the statement reads. “We are still processing the news that Trina is truly gone, and trying to come to terms to the harsh reality of the senseless tragedy we are now facing.”

The 48-year-old was last seen in January.
“Our fight for Trina is nowhere near over. Although we have brought Trina home to her loving family, she cannot rest peacefully until we bring justice to her name,” the family’s statement adds.
IHIT has promised to deliver an update in the days ahead. However, there have been few details shared since the homicide team confirmed Hunt’s death over the weekend.
Homicide investigators confirmed on Wednesday that no arrests have been made.
Sgt. Frank Jang said IHIT had been hearing from many people who are looking for answers.
“We’ve been inundated with calls and comments from the public,” he said. “We understand the impact that investigation’s had on the Tri-Cities community and beyond, quite frankly.”
