    Circumstances of Disappearance
    On the 22nd of September, 1966, Kenneth Schmit was last seen at 10:30 p.m. leaving a residence in St. Walburg, SK.

    Schmit was a barrister and solicitor, practicing in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan.
    On September 21, 1966, Schmit travelled from Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, to North Battleford, Saskatchewan. He telephoned his wife that day (she was in Prince Albert) and advised her that he was going fishing with a friend, Horace Green, and that he was going to look into the purchase of a new car.

    Green and Schmit had travelled to Saint Walburg to the home of a Mr. Romphf, arriving there around 6:00 p.m. on September 22nd. Arguments developed between Schmit and Romphf and Schmit left the home of Romphf that evening around 10:00 o'clock. He has not been seen or heard of since that date.

    Schmit was in good health, enjoyed a happy home life and had no reason to disappear. Since his disappearance no cheques have been cashed on his bank account nor have his credit cards been used.

    Numerous searches of the area were conducted, however, Schmit was not located. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police Detachment at North Battleford searched the Saint Walburg area with police dogs and police and civilian personnel. That area is heavily wooded and marshy with bears.

    Bumping case up. There is an old saying that "A mountie always gets his man." This one has taken a long time, but perhaps the case can still be solved.

    By Leader-Post staffNovember 30, 2009 6:08 PM
    REGINA — RCMP in Saskatchewan are asking for the public’s help with a historical missing person case more than 43 years old.

    In a media release, RCMP Historical Case Unit North requested information from the public on the disappearance in 1966 of a St. Walburg male.

    Kenneth James ‘Jimmy’ Schmit was last seen at 10:30 p.m. on Sept. 22, 1966. He was leaving a residence in the town of St. Walburg, about 100 kilometres southwest of Meadow Lake. Though searches were conducted in the area, Schmit was never located, RCMP noted.

    Schmit was born on Dec. 6, 1933. RCMP described Schmit as Caucasian and said, when he disappeared in 1966, he was 33 years old, five-feet-eight-inches tall, 155 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes.

    He wore black, horn-rimmed glasses, and was last seen wearing black pants, a white shirt and a wine-colored cardigan.

    Anyone with any information regarding the case is asked to contact RCMP Historical Case Unit North at 306-875-5153. Anyone wishing to remain anonymous is asked to contact Saskatchewan Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or via a website (www.saskcrimestoppers.com).

    The last to see him alive...

    Perhaps if the RCMP could release the full text of the statements of Mr. Romphf and of Horace Green, more insight could be had into the last known sighting of Mr. Schmidt.

    seeking information

    Anyone happen to have more information than what I readily find posted on the net. Jimmy Schmit was my dad's brother and I was only two when he disappeared. My family rarely if ever talked about this and I am curious as to what really may have happened.

    He was also my dad's brother. A few of us in the family are trying to pursue any leads that have surfaced over the past few years.

    This is my dad. I want to know what really happened. Someone has to know something or saw something. Please just get back to the RCMP. I agree that they need to go back and talk to Mr Rompf and Mr Green. My question is why is everything so hush hush what are they trying to cover up?
