Police team to probe disappearances

The Province

By Keith Fraser

Friday, September 18, 1998

Vancouver police have assigned eight officers to investigate an increasing number of missing women.

Constable Anne Drennan said yesterday there were five cases last year and seven so far this year.

That compares with three cases in 1995 and one in 1996 in which women are still missing.

Detectives from the homicide and sexual-offences squad will be involved in a "working group" that will try to find any links between the cases. Forty women reported missing since 1971 remain unaccounted for.

"This number usually goes down as times passes and more information is obtained, particularly when it pertains to women from the downtown east side," said Drennan. "They will disappear for a wide variety of reasons. Sometimes if they’re involved in the sex trade they’ll go to Calgary or Edmonton and just get out of Vancouver…."

The officers will interview as many people as possible, to find out where the missing women hung out and with whom. At the moment, there is no suspect in respect to the disappearances.

Vancouver police are also contacting other police agencies throughout B.C. and in Washington state for any potential leads.
