Sylvia's Statement of events leading to Sarah deVries disappearance April 14, 1998.

Sarah and I left the Beacon Hotel on Hastings after getting ready for work and headed down hoping to catch James for a "pick meup". We hooked up with James near the Balmoral on Hastings and Main around "1:30" in the morning of April 14.

We headed toward Oppenheimer Park to grab some dope and fix ourselves. Working dope sick or worrying for the coming "terror" is not my idea of fun. So after taking care of ourselves and wishing James a "Good Night"we walk from Oppenheimer up Jackson Street toward Hastings, down Hastings heading East and stopped on Princess.

Sarah stayed on the NW corner by the store. I walked across to the SE corner by the dentist. We stood around for about 15-20 minutes. Several cars drove by-back-n forth-around and around - a light blue four door car with a white vinyl roof drove by me a little slower, proceeded east on Hastings - turned right on Hawks and went around the block I presume and pulled up to me on the corner of Princess and Hastings on Princess. He asked me to get in the car and go around the block. I got in.

Sarah and I talked of meeting up after we broke so I looked back to the corner Sarah stood on to see if she got picked up - we were also trying to spot each other - my date and I proceeded around the block and talked business and then agreed to disagree and he turned back onto Princess from Pender to drop me off. I looked for Sarah and saw no one. She was gone. I could see no cars, nothing. I got out of the car on Princess and Hastings all the time looking back and forth.

I don't mean to sound melodramatic but I knew something was wrong. The whole street was empty. No cars, no people, no nothing. It was really quiet. I felt really scared and alone. I knew she wasn't going to meet me. I knew she was gone.
