    Canada - Lucy Johnson, 26, Surrey BC, Sept 1961

    This is really amazing: http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2013/07...n_3623319.html

    The husband left behind apparently waited a number of years to report her missing, which cast suspicion. Glad the daughter knows what happened to her mother, and I hope she can meet her and find out why she left.

    Daily Mail, story with pictures at link:

    Mother missing for more than 50 YEARS is found living 1,000 miles away with
    new family - and police had suspected her husband of killing her all that time


    • Daughter used newspaper adverts to track down Lucy Johnson
    • First Nation woman disappeared from British Columbia home in 1961

    she has a lot of questions and they're all of the 'why' variety

    I would too

    hope her mother has a suitable explanation

    Wow, from that article: "The Surrey RCMP's Missing Persons Unit doesn't give up on unsolved cases until 100 years have passed.... The unit still has a file open on Albert Wilkinson, who went missing in 1957."

    I wonder if other LE agencies are that persistent.

    I often wonder in these older cases of women leaving their kids behind if DV was involved. Their husband was so bad to them they HAD to leave? IDK but back then it was much harder for a woman to leave and get custody of the kids by arguing domestic violence.

    I'm willing to bet domestic violence, especially if she want missing 52 years ago.
