Sunday is 28 years old since Michael Dunahee, four years old, disappeared from the Victoria Park.
Dunahee played at the Blanshard School, which was not far from his family. A lot of people were in the area when the football game took place.
After he disappeared, a great search was launched for the little boy, but he never found it.
His mother, Crystal Dunahee, says she still hopes for some kind of answer. On Sunday, hundreds of people gathered at the annual Michael Dunahee, a 5 km long fun and walk that took place at the Esquimalt Recreational Center.
"It's nice to have this friendship and we know that people are 100 percent behind us," Dunahee said.
Victoria Police says that the disappearance of Dunahee triggered one of the largest police investigations in Canadian history that he lost the baby and the largest in the history of the department.
Detective Sgt. Michelle Robertson of the Historical Examination Department said in a message that the department is still receiving and exploring new tips.
"Over the years, many people in our community, including investigators, have severely affected this case."
Investigators say they believe someone has first-hand information about disappearance.
Anyone who has the information should contact the VicPD address at 250-995-7444 or, to remain anonymous, criminals at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
