To mark the fourth anniversary of the disappearance and death of Hillary Angel Wilson, friends and family gathered for a walk and candle light service.

Her family hosted a Justice for Hillary Memorial Walk in 2013, Monday morning where they marched to the Manitoba Legislature. Later, mourners gathered again at the Legislature for a candle light vigil. About 20 people attended the vigil.

Wilson's mother says it's cultural tradition to stop after four memorials but she won't stop looking for justice, "I wish this and many other cases could get solved," she told Global News. "I'm patiently waiting and trying to do what I can."

BIDY FOUND IN A ROOF WATER TANK
Location: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
File Name: Creepy and Mysterious Death of Elisa Lam
Author/Contributor: Cameron N. P.

Elisa Lam

File Number: 104200146

In 2013, a Canadian student, a Canadian student at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, went missing while traveling in California. She was traveling alone and had scheduled to check out of her hotel on Jan. 31, but once the front desk didn't hear from her, they called the police.

After about a week of searching, the police released a disturbing video that showed Elisa's last known sighting. In the footage, Lam is seen exiting and re-entering the elevator, talking and gesturing in the hallway outside, and sometimes seeming to hide within the elevator, which itself appears to be malfunctioning. The elevator surveillance footage showed Elisa acting strangely, and as the video went viral, many people had several theories for her behavior, from mental illness to paranormal forces.

Maintenance workers at the hotel discovered the body from a water tank atop the Cecil Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles on February 19, 2013 when investigating guest complaints of problems with the water supply. Guests at the hotel also started complaining about "black" and foul-smelling water. Investigators said the cause of death was drowning.

Elisa Lam

The circumstances of Lam's death, once she was found, also raised questions, especially in light of the Cecil Hotel's history in relation to other notable deaths and murders. Her body was naked with most of her clothes and personal effects floating in the water near her. It took the Los Angeles County Coroner's office four months, after repeated delays, to release the autopsy report, which reports no evidence of physical trauma and states that the manner of death was accidental.

Guests at the Cecil, now re-branded as Stay on Main, sued the hotel over the incident, and Lam's parents filed a separate suit later that year; the latter was dismissed in 2015.

As for why or how Elisa got into the water tank remains a mystery.

PID: 0420-112000-0148
Case Status: UNSOLVED
DISAPPEARED AFTER CALLING STEPFATHER
Location: Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada
File Name: Pedersen, 10, Vanished Without a Trace
Author/Contributor: Amanda W.

Joanne Marie Pedersen

File Number: 104200148

On the 19th of February, 1983, at approximately 8:15 pm, Joanne Marie Pedersen, 10, went missing from the Penny Pincher Store near the corner of Vedder Road and Watson Road in the Vedder Crossing area of Chilliwack, BC., after a trivial argument with her sister, who was then 11.

According to The Globe and Mail, the spat occurred while the girls were walking home from the mall with their 14-year-old cousin. Joanne's mother and stepfather were at a nearby Legion hall, Constable Lea-Anne Dunlop of the Upper Fraser Valley detachment said.

Her sister and cousin ran ahead and, as a prank, locked Joanne out of the house. Joanne tried for a few minutes to get in. But it was cold and raining, Constable Dunlop said, and she went to a corner store close to the house to phone her parents. By the time her sister opened the door, Joanne had already left.

Joanne reached the store, but the clerk was busy with other customers. Joanne went outside to use a pay phone. She called the operator for the number at the Legion and then phoned her stepfather, who arranged to pick her up. When he arrived at the store a half-hour later, she was gone.

In 2008, Joanne's mother made an impassioned plea for an unidentified man who was seen with her daughter shortly before she vanished to finally speak to police.

"As a mother, I have suffered very much through the years. I really miss Joanne," Angela Reilly says in an emotional videotaped message distributed by the RCMP.

"She was so happy. She sang a lot," Ms. Reilly says despondently, as she urges the man to contact police. "As a mother, I'm pleading with you to come forward. Please do that for me."

Police say Joanne was last seen with an adult man at a telephone booth. The man was described as Caucasian, approximately 20 to 30 years old, 5'6" to 5'7" in height, slim to medium build, with light to dark hair that was below the ears. He was clean shaven and wearing a dark jacket.

Initially, the unidentified man was painted in a negative light, Constable Dunlop said. But after consulting with a behavioural scientist, police now believe the man last seen with Jo-Anne was there to help her. "Our hope is that the individual will know we understand he was trying to help and will come forward to talk to police," she said.

In 2011, an anonymous letter was sent to the Chilliwack RCMP about Joanne's disappearance, but while it generated lots of tips, her case remains a mystery. They believe the man is still somewhere in the Fraser Valley and aware of the media coverage, Constable Dunlop said.

Joanne's family did not want to speak to the media about their ordeal, the constable added. A re-enactment of the incident, staged by the Chilliwack RCMP and Crime Stoppers, is on YouTube.

If you have any information regarding this case please contact the Chilliwack RCMP Community Policing Office, Serious Crime Unit, at 1-604-792-4611 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Six Men Vanished in Same Region of B.C.

Six Men Mysteriously Vanished in Same Region of British Columbia

File Number: 104200185

Between 2017 and 2020, five men have mysteriously disappeared or died in British Columbia in the area north-east of Vancouver, around D'arcy, Kamloops and Merritt. Despite extensive searches and investigations, only two bodies have turned up and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) remain baffled.

Marshal Iwaasa, 26 - last seen November 17, 2019

Marshal Iwaasa

Marshal Iwaasa, 27, was last seen by his family in Lethbridge on November 17, 2019, and planned to go to a storage locker. He told his family he was returning to Calgary but hasn't been seen or heard from since.

Iwaasa's burnt out GMC pickup truck was found by hikers on a remote forest service road near D'Arcy B.C., on November 23, 2019. The location was close to the trailhead to the Brian Waddington Hut near Pemberton.

When he was last seen, Iwaasa told the family he was going to visit his storage locker and the storage locker key and logs show his code was used to enter the facility and then, about two hours later, leave the compound.

Lethbridge police said that from the onset of their investigation, Iwaasa's disappearance has been considered suspicious, but there is no "credible, corroborated or compelling information to suggest foul play or that the occurrence is criminal in nature." Police said their investigation had determined that before he went missing, Iwaasa had "hidden the fact that he had stopped attending post-secondary classes." "In examining Iwaasa's personal affairs in the months leading up to his disappearance - including interviews with close friends as well as his financial, medical and social media activity - there is evidence to suggest he was experiencing stress in his life and had become withdrawn," Lethbridge police said.

Ryan Provencher, 38, and Richard Scurr, 37 - last seen July 17, 2019, found dead one month later

Ryan, 38, and Richard, 37 were last seen alive on July 17, 2019 in metro Vancouver. Provencher's white 2019 Jeep Cherokee was found on July 21, parked in a wooded area near Logan Lake. The lake is between Kamloops and Merritt. One month later, their bodies were found in a rural area north of Spences Bridge, 80 kilometres away.

The RCMP has said there was "criminal behaviour" associated with the case, but no further details or cause of death have been made public.

Police said they planned to travel to the southern Interior and preliminary information indicated the men reached their destination, 35 kilometres northeast of Lytton, along the Thompson River.

In 2005, a then 23-year-old Richard Allan Scurr was arrested and subsequently sentenced to seven months in jail and two years probation for trafficking in cocaine and related offences. At the time, RCMP alleged he was a key member of The Crew, a gang affiliated with the Nomads chapter of the Hells Angels.

Ben Tyner, 32 - last seen January 26, 2019

Ben Tyner

Tyner, a working cowboy, disappeared from the Merritt area, after riding into the hills to look for cattle. His abandoned horse was found fully saddled on a forest service road northwest of the city two days later. Police said Ben was last seen at 2 pm, but it's unknown when he rode into the backcountry or where he was heading.

Search and rescue teams scoured the area, including crews from Nicola Valley, Kamloops, Shuswap, Central Okanagan, Penticton, Princeton, Logan Lake, Chilliwack and Surrey. Police said nearly 40 search and rescue members were on site , along with dog services, snowmobiles and air support.

"We've had tremendous support from search-and-rescue teams across the province," Merritt RCMP Const. Tracy Dunsmore said. She said it was "very unusual" for a seasoned cowboy to be separated from his horse.

Even after this extensive search no trace of Ben has been found.

Ryan Shtuka, 20 - last seen February 17, 2018

Ben Tyner

The 20-year-old disappeared after leaving a house party at the Sun Peaks Ski Resort outside of Kamloops. RCMP and hundreds of volunteers searched extensively through the village and its surrounding trails, forests and mountains, but few clues have ever emerged as to what happened to him.

Luke Neville, 48 - last seen October 9, 2017

Luke Neville

Luke Neville was last seen in Spences Bridge on October 9, 2017 and his burned out white 2003 Ford E250 van was found on the Sackum Forest service road 20km from his home the following day.

A cadaver dog search of the area in June 2018 turned up nothing. The Neville family erected a billboard on the Trans Canada Highway in Spences Bridge, asking anyone with information to come forward. Police say they consider the disappearance suspicious. Brother Mark Neville says the family has not been informed of any developments in the case. "No leads, no suspect, no news," he said. "It's all in the police's hands and up to them."

According to an RCMP spokesman, all the cases remain open in each of their police jurisdictions. "The investigators in these matters are familiar with other ongoing investigations," said Cpl. Christopher Manseau. "The only thing noted to be in common is that the missing persons or victims are male, and their geographic location."

PID: 0420-112000-0186
Case Status: UNSOLVED
Vanished Without a Trace
Location: Revelstoke, British Columbia, Canada
File Name: Suspicious Disappearance of Brianne Wolgram
Author/Contributor: Osvaldo R.

Brianne Wolgram

File Number: 104200186

Revelstoke, British Columbia - Brianne Wolgram was just 19 years old at the time of her disappearance.

Many people viewed her as shy or timid. Those who were lucky enough to get to know her would say she was outgoing, fun, and absolutely hilarious.

Over two decades years ago, Brianne seemingly vanished without a trace from her hometown of Revelstoke, B.C.

According to reports, Brianne was last seen on Sept. 5, 1998, around 11:30 p.m at the Revelstoke 7-11. She was in the company of three other young unidentified women. Brianne was supposed to meet up with a friend that night, but never arrived.

Five days later, Brianne's newly purchased black Acura Integra with gold-coloured rims was found in the ditch 16 kilometres up a logging road towards Alkolkolex Falls. Her wallet, drivers license and $200 in cash were still in the car.

Hundreds of people searched the woods, boats scanned the shores of rivers and planes and helicopters provided air support. There was even a $20,000 reward for information that would lead to Brianne, but no one stepped forward.

Brianne resided with her parents, Sheryl and Cliff. She has two older brothers, Troy and Todd, who were not living at home during the time of Brianne's disappearance.

On March 25, every year, her mother burns a candle to commemorate her birthday.

It's to light the way home," said Sheryl Wolgram, mom.

Sheryl said in many ways, it's like her daughter disappeared yesterday. She has good days and bad days.

"It's like a radio dial in my head. Sometimes I need to change the channel."

Sheryl finds going to funerals particularly challenging, because at funerals there's closure. She doesn't have that.

Anna Swayze, friend of Brianne's, started a GoFundMe to collect money to offer a reward for information that will lead to Brianne's whereabouts.

Not long before she disappeared, Brianne had purchased a black Acura Integra with gold-coloured rims that was her pride and joy. It was in pristine condition and she made sure to take good care of it. That last summer was filled with "Slurpees", rocky beaches, and the loud blaring of Beastie Boys from her new car.

Swayze wants the RCMP to release photos taken on scene of Brianne's car when it was found.

"It should get people talking about it again, regardless if it's for good or bad" Swayze said.

Anyone with information about the circumstances surrounding Wolgram's disappearance is asked to contact the RCMP or Missing Children Society of Canada at 1-800-661-6160.
