"When I reported my sister missing," said Lucy Glaim, of Smithers, who was once the youth justice worker for the Wet'sewet'en Unlocking Aboriginal Justice program, "[the RCMP officer] just said something like, 'She's just found a party or something, so give her a couple of days.'"

Those couple of days turned into an eternity: Glaim's sister, Delphine Nikal, disappeared on the morning of June 14, 1990, while hitchhiking from Smithers to a friend's house in nearby Telkwa. She was never seen again. Glaim had reported her missing the following morning. Delphine was 16.

She was never heard from again.

Lucy Glaim told The Sun in 1995 that she believed her sister was abducted.
