Bowmanville girl Noreen Anne Greenley vanishes without a trace on September 14th 1963!
It was Saturday September 14th 1963, that the Bowmanville teen vanished and despite the efforts of police and the community, Noreen Greenley was never found. The members of my family have refused to give up their search for answers about Noreen. Bonnie Wilkins was Noreens best friend and was the last one to see the 13 year old Noreen. Bonnie recalls that night. "We were at the Liberty Bowl on Baseline Rd in Bowmanville that night with my new boyfriend Gary Woolner. Noreen and I bowled for a while and then we walked through town. We stopped at a restaurant and then went over to my house on Hwy #2.
My parents were out for the evening. I wanted to spend some time with my boyfriend" Around 11 pm. Noreen walked the 20 minutes or so over to the North side of Hwy 2. She stood under the streetlight waiting for the Burley Bus. After about 10 minutes she returned to the Wilkins house complaining that is was cold and that the bus had not arrived. Bonnie offered her a coat but Noreen refused it and went back outside to wait for the bus which went down Hwy #2 every hour or so. That was the last time Bonnie saw her friend. At 3 am Noreens father Harvey reported his daughter missing to the Bowmanville Police. The bus driver Ivan Bulmer was interviewed and he confirmed that he did not pick anyone up at the intersection when the bus passed through shortly after 11:30 pm. As the days passed a number of large search parties were organized. On September 17th almost 400 people took part in the search. Neighbours, friends, family and even the entire sift from the Goodyear Plant in Bowmanville participated, helping to search the entire area north of Hwy 401 to the Third Concession of Darlington, including the entire town of Bowmanville and the area between Martin Road and Maple Grove Road. Noreen Greenley has vanished into thin air.

The story has been revisited from time to time over the years, including in 2003, when homicide investigators issued an appeal for information. But no calls came. Durham police consider the case an active file.

I wonder if the man who phoned the family was for real, and if so - does he have the courage to phone again?

"After a night of bowling with a couple of friends, the Grade 7 student went on her own to catch a bus home to the community of Maple Grove at about 11 p.m.

But she never boarded the bus. No trace of her was ever found.

Months after she went missing there was a report Noreen had been seen in Calgary. Her parents flew to Alberta, hopeful the lead was legitimate, but the trail led nowhere. Noreen became the child who simply vanished without a trace.

The story has been revisited from time to time over the years, including in 2003, when homicide investigators issued an appeal for information. But no calls came. Durham police consider the case an active file.

Noreen's disappearance is the subject of much discussion and speculation on an online website dedicated to missing person files, but the chatter amounts to just that. No contributor has claimed to have an explanation for what happened to the girl.

Ms. Greenley is convinced Noreen was the victim of a crime and that someone knows what happened that night. She recalls a phone call her mother received a couple of years ago: A man mentioned Noreen, stammered that he had something to get off his chest -- and then abruptly hung up."

I was looking for video on this case, but have not located any so far. Maybe it is time to make a new video and maybe flush out something new!

From the Calgary archives...at the time Noreen was supposedly spotted in Calgary and LE thought she may be working as a domestic.

Although I prefer to find my own links and info for WS, IO see that US has more info on this case, with some interesting recent feedback concerning the family and a psychic's comments..

I have always found the 'friends' story wishy-washy and difficult to believe. Imo, it makes more sense Noreen never made it back to the friends house that night. On the UC site, a relative of NG's (I believe it was her sister) posted that the friend stopped cooperating with police when pressed for answers for that night.

It would be interesting to know if that call was traced and if so, where it lead to.

In the meantime, maybe this handheld human remains device could be helpful in this case. thanks for the info. WL, maybe you are right, that if enough people want a machine like that, it could be made available for public purchase.

"Fifty years of searching for missing Bowmanville girl
Noreen Greenley disappeared Sept. 14, 1963. Her family is struggling to understand how 50 years later there have been no arrests, no body found, no progress made



Clarington This Week
ByJennifer O'Meara

CLARINGTON -- The night air was unseasonably cool on Sept. 14, 1963. Noreen Greenley, 13, left her best friend’s house late that evening to catch a bus home, but dashed back to borrow a sweater. Then she set out again for the 11:30 p.m. Bowmanville bus, and seemingly vanished off the face of the earth"
