Wolfville, Nova Scotia - The sister of a Glendale, Inverness County man who disappeared in Wolfville nearly three decades ago is still feeling the pain of her loss but now is focusing on her brother's life, not his disappearance.
On September 7, 1992, Allan Kenley Matheson 20, and his sister, Kayrene Willis, 18, arrived in Wolfville for their first year at Acadia University. Kenley had taken two years off after graduating high school in Cape Breton to drive a motorcycle across the county, plants trees in BC, try to save the rainforests in South America, and visit Guatemala and Belize.
Kenley was going to major in biology; his sister, chemistry. They shared classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but they saw each other in Elliott Hall on Monday mornings as Kenley left his class, and Kayrene went to hers.
Kenley lived in a single room in Crowell Tower (the biggest dorm on campus, known for its parties). It was in Crowell Tower, on Sunday, September 20 at around 4 pm, that Kayrene saw her brother for the last time. She said he seemed 'slightly withdrawn', but attributed it to a large party that had been thrown in Crowell the night before. They made plans to study together on Monday night.
A friend of Kenley's said he saw Kenley walking down Main Street in Wolfville on Monday, but Kayrene didn't see him that morning in Elliott Hall. She called to leave him a message. He wasn't in class on Tuesday, so Kayrene went to his dorm room to leave a note on his door.
On Wednesday, when Kenley's RA let Kayrene into his room, Kenley wasn't there, but all of his things were. His passport. His clothes, and toiletries. Kenley had $3,000 in the bank (other reports say closer to $4,000), saved up from planting trees, that hadn't been touched and hasn't been touched to this day. Kenley was less than two weeks into his first semester, and he vanished without a trace.
With no evidence to go on, the possibilities of what happened to Kenley are almost endless. Did he decide that university wasn't him for him and just quit? Was Kenley secretly struggling with mental illness, or had something happened in his short time at Acadia to make him commit suicide?

Saskatoon, Saskatchewan: Darren Greschuk lived with her common-law wife, Michelle Sansom, in a small bungalow on a quiet street in Riversdale. He owned a tow-trucking company. He was also a partner in a successful tree removal business. They'd been together since high school and had a son, Dustin.
Michelle Sansom still remembers the sound that changed her life forever.
A crisp, loud bang rang through Saskatoon's Riversdale neighbourhood.
The shot, fired into the darkness on that July night more than a decade ago, sent a shock wave through Sansom's comfortable, middle-class existence.
"At this time we were in the neighbourhood for ten years. We trusted it. We never had any issue. We were pretty comfortable," she recalls.
That domestic bliss was shattered on July 8, 2006.
It had been an unseasonably warm July and the rain that night was a welcome respite. The couple left their front door open to let the cool breeze into the living room. Dustin, who was 10 years old at the time, was sleeping at his grandparents' place. Michelle and Darren ate takeout burgers at the coffee table in the living room, listening to rain fall outside.
When Michelle went to bed first, around 10 p.m., Darren told her to leave the door open. He wanted to keep the refreshing breeze flowing through the house.
The next thing she remembers is waking abruptly to loud noises. She walked out of the bedroom, she says. That's when she first saw a face that would haunt her for years to come.
"It can really tear you apart. You brain is never the same after someone puts a gun to your head," she says.
The man had walked into their house and hit Darren over the head with a handgun. He demanded money, waving the gun and ordering them outside onto their deck.
"He kept demanding money, 'Where is your money?" He thought Darren had money, which he didn't," she says.
Once out on the deck, Darren convinced the man to go back inside the house for the keys to his garage. That's when Michelle ran, leaping off the deck. She squeezed herself between two houses and waited.
