The editor hasn't been since recently

The photo caption for the article ("Search continues for missing Langley teen" on CBC News online on June 14, 2011) contains what - at a glance - looks to be a repeated word, but it is actually a spectacular misspelling. The first since should actually be seen, but that error was apparently not seen by anybody at CBC. Then,

in the article's penultimate paragraph, the word of is missing from between word and her. While the article has been updated at least once, the errors remain.
