    Canada - Sunshine Wood, 16, Winnipeg, 20 Feb 2004

    Winnipeg police say they have no new leads on the case of an aboriginal teenager who disappeared two years ago today. Sunshine Wood was last seen leaving the St. Regis Hotel in downtown Winnipeg around midnight on Feb. 20, 2004. Six months earlier, she had moved to Winnipeg from the Gods River First Nation to attend high school.



    Rex Ross, Wood's uncle, still holds out hope his niece will be found alive and well. "My hopes were that whatever outcome of the last time we saw her walk out of the St. Regis, that we will find her and nothing happened to her," he said.



    Child Find Manitoba has issued a public plea for information on Wood's disappearance. Winnipeg Police Const. Jacqueline Chaput says the missing person's unit is still involved in the case, although police have no leads. "There is no update at this time. The investigation is still ongoing, of course, and there is no information to add to the investigation," Chaput said Monday

    Winnipeg police are checking out an unconfirmed tip that Sunshine Wood -- a young woman whose mysterious disappearance has garnered plenty of attention -- is alive and well somewhere outside Manitoba...

    ... Police are appealing for tips from the public to find Wood, Tianne Bell, Cherisse Houle and Sara Vermette.

    RIP Cherisse Houle.

    The body found in a stream just outside Winnipeg this week has been identified as a 17-year-old girl who had gone missing on previous occasions.
    Cherisse Houle's body was found on Wednesday by construction workers levelling trenches near the riverbank in the Rural Municipality of Rosser, about 16 kilometres west of Winnipeg. She was discovered at about 3 p.m., according to the RCMP.

    RCMP highlight 6 cases on National Missing Children's Day

    "It's critical that we keep missing children's stories in the public eye because there's always hope that someone will do the right thing and come forward with new information that could lead to a missing child being located," Christy Dzikowicz, director of Missing Children Services at the Canadian Centre, said in a release.
    Sunshine's is among the cases being highlighted.

    2015 article:

    Wood says Sunshine stayed with family at first, but at some point she moved in with a woman named Priscilla. He says he’s not sure how Sunshine came to know Priscilla, but that the woman took his daughter in.

    Sunshine stayed in touch. “She always phoned,” Wood said. But on Feb. 21, 2004, while in Winnipeg visiting family, Wood learned his daughter was missing.

    It turns out Sunshine disappeared just before midnight the night before: She was last seen in front of the St. Regis Hotel in downtown Winnipeg on Feb. 20, 2004. A surveillance photo from that night shows Sunshine in what appears to be the hotel lobby, smiling, holding open a door.
