    Canada - Melanie Temperton, 20, Mascouche, QC, 21 Sept 1988

    $10,000 reward put up for info on woman’s disappearance 24 years ago



    The mother of a young woman who disappeared 24 years ago is hoping that a reward of $10,000 might jog someone’s memory as to the fate of her daughter.

    “Somebody out there knows something and I’m hoping that behind a closed door is someone who can give us something to work with,” said Gwen Vatcher-Temperton as she plastered posters of her missing daughter around her former childhood neighbourhood.

    24 years ago - tomorrow!!!

    Search resumes for Melanie Temperton, missing since 1988
    September 19, 2012

    snipped...On Sept. 21 of that year, 20-year-old Melanie Temperton had rented a room at the Metro Motel on Lajeunesse St. in Montreal with her credit card.

    That was the last anyone had ever heard of her.

    From the link you provided above ~n/t~...

    The Doe Network: Case File 232DFQC

    snipped...

    Temperton was last seen in her hometown of Mascouche, Quebec Canada on September 21, 1988. She phoned her mom to say she was staying at a friend's house for the night. The next day, her mother tried to call her at work and was told she hadn't been in to work.

    For weeks police told Temperton she would hear from her daughter, who was living at her parents' rural home near Mascouche, Que. She has never been heard from again.

    Police suspect foul play was involved in her disappearance.

    The motel still exists. I wonder if some of the employees who worked there are still around. Motel staff, etc.

    Mom seems to believe the person who has information on Melanie's disappearance lives in Mascouche but I wonder if it would be helpful if they put up flyers near the motel.

    Who knows. Maybe someone who remembers this case will come forward?

    Sad that they didn't take her case seriously. It was treated as a runaway. Someone dropped the ball.

    Family of woman missing 24 years hopes for 'miracle'


    Her mother, Gwen Temperton, said her daughter failed to show up for work. That's when she called police.

    "She went out one night and called me in the evening to let me know that she wouldn't be home that night," Temperton said.

    "Getting back and forth from the city was hard, so she told me she was going to be staying with a friend, so I didn't panic. The next day I didn't hear from her, and the next evening I started to say, 'This is strange, she didn't call me today.' And then later on that evening, I said to my husband, 'Something's not right here, she always calls.'

    "The next morning I knew something was wrong."

    The Tempertons haven't seen their daughter since.

    Hey! Do you think Melanie might have been into Céline Dion >>>> ????

    Incognito tournée - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Céline Dion toured Quebec only. The Incognito tournée started on January 11, 1988 at the Theatre du Cuivre, Rouyn-Noranda. Dion gave 7 concerts in the northern region of Quebec and 2 in Laval.

    Dion gave a series of 42 consecutive shows at the Saint-Denis Theatre in Montreal. She performed there for a month starting on February 10, 1988, and later between April 12-17, 1988, June 14-19, 1988, September 21-24, 1988 and December 14-18, 1988.

    FWIW, I don't think she was into Celine Dion but I could be wrong. Didn't her mom say she was into the wrong crowd?? I'm thinking more rock concerts...like Metallica, Motley Crue. Who else was popular back then? I wasn't into that type of music but my brother was. Will try to find out if there were any concerts scheduled by these bands when she disappeared.

    Also, very popular back then was a male strip club. Club 281.

    I wonder why meeting up with her friend fell through. How did she get from her friend's house to the motel and who were these other friends she met up with? Were they from Montreal or Mascouche?

    During her stay in Montréal, she reportedly met with friends in various locations.

    I wondered about this too ~n/t~. Why not search in the area where she was last known to be?

    Bumping for Melanie, she has to be somewhere. She was twenty years old when last seen, but in the photo provided, Melanie looks younger than that, imo.
