    Canada - Jennifer Catcheway, 18, Winnipeg, MB, 19 June 2008

    Family won't give up
    Woman, 18, disappeared on birthday


    PORTAGE LA PRAIRIE -- The search continues for an 18-year-old woman last seen on her birthday two weeks ago.
    The RCMP major crime and serious crime units are now assisting in the investigation of the whereabouts of Jennifer Leigh Catcheway.
    Two adult males have been arrested, questioned and released without charge in connection with Catcheway's disappearance.
    The Manitoba Search and Rescue Association has provided 15 searchers and two dogs to help dozens of people already combing the bush just north of the Dakota Tipi First Nation. The search was into its fourth day yesterday and the family of Catcheway vowed not to give up until she is found.

    WINNIPEG — The party was all set for Jennifer Catcheway's 18th birthday. Guests were invited, there was food for the barbecue. All that remained was for the guest of honour to arrive. But Ms. Catcheway never arrived at her mother's home in Portage La Prairie, Man., that night, and for more than two weeks her family has tried desperately to find her, struggling at first to get police and the news media to take seriously their concerns about a missing aboriginal teenager.
    The search gathered steam Saturday as an RCMP team, with the help of a helicopter, combed a section of woods near Gypsumville, Man., 270 kilometres north of Portage La Prairie in the rural Interlake region. The search came to a halt late Saturday evening having turned up nothing, the RCMP said.
    On Friday the RCMP arrested two men in connection with the case and brought them in for questioning. They were released without charge, and have not been identified by police.

    Families of missing, murdered women share grief at event

    http://www.winnipegsun.com/news/mani...65036-sun.html

    snip*

    Jennifer Catcheway went missing on June 19, 2007. Since then, the family has organized numerous searches in the Portage la Prairie area in hopes of finding any clue to her disappearance.

    snip*

    According to a national advocacy group tracking the Canada-wide problem, Osborne is one of 75 aboriginal women who have gone missing -- or whose murders are unsolved -- in this province. Smith estimates 20 of those cases are in Winnipeg.
    Organizers were circulating a petition urging the federal government to launch an independent investigation as to why there are more than 520 aboriginal women across Canada who are either missing or have been murdered.

    Two men related to the Catcheways???

    On Friday the RCMP arrested two men in connection with the case and brought them in for questioning. They were released without charge, and have not been identified by police.
    Ms. Catcheway's sister, Mary Starr, said the two men who were questioned are related to the Catcheways by marriage. They are the last known people to have seen Ms. Catcheway, although she doesn't know where or why they were together. “We've known them for many years, that's probably why my sister felt safe being there with them,” Ms. Starr said

    http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/...icle695918.ece

    I question this - Jennifer Catcheway's sister does not know why Jennifer was with these 2 men (that are somehow related by marriage). Why not? Who were these 2 men that last saw Jennifer on the day of her 18th birthday!?

    Missing Manitoba woman was slain, Mounties say

    By Gabrielle Giroday, Winnipeg Free PressSeptember 18, 2009


    WINNIPEG — The family of a Manitoba woman missing for more than a year is convinced she was slain. As of this week, Mounties agree.
    Jennifer Catcheway, 18, went to Grand Rapids in northern Manitoba on a road trip with two male relatives in June 2008 and was never seen again. The father of the Portage la Prairie woman said family members, who have resumed the search, received information placing her at Dakota Tipi First Nation outside Portage, about 80 kilometres west of Winnipeg, before she disappeared around June 19.

    Funding for missing aboriginal women applauded

    The mother of a missing woman said she was happy to hear about the federal government's funding commitment to address missing aboriginal women in Canada.

    Bernice Catcheway, whose daughter Jennifer has been missing since June 2008, said the funding is good news.

    [snip]

    The federal government pledged $10 million in funding over a period of two years to address the high number of missing and murdered aboriginal women in its budget, which was presented March 4.

    Missing woman's family continues 4-year-old search
    Family members of a young Portage la Prairie, Man., woman who went missing four years ago are not giving up efforts to find her.

    Jennifer Catcheway was 18 years old when she disappeared on June 19, 2008.

    Her parents, Bernice and Wilfred Catcheway, and other family members spent Tuesday — her 22nd birthday — hosting a fundraising barbecue in Portage la Prairie.

    The money raised from the barbecue will go towards a new search that will begin later this week in the woods north of the city.

    Parents hope for answers in finding daughter
    Searching through the woods. Combing through thick bush filled with mosquitoes and poison ivy. Then, as winter nears, sloshing through knee-deep snow.

    Those are some of the many difficult steps taken by the family of Jennifer Catcheway, the Manitoba woman who vanished on her 18th birthday.

    Monday marks exactly four years since she disappeared.

    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)
