    YOU GO GIRL! I posted on your site a few years ago and it's painfully obvious what happened, all the way around. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    10 Years After Mother, Daughter Vanish, Mystery Remains

    Cold Case Unit Investigates Disappearance

    UPDATED: 11:35 pm EST February 3, 2011

    WEST CHESTERFIELD, N.H. -- Ten years ago, a mother and daughter went missing from their home in West Chesterfield, and the investigation continues into what happened to them.

    Tina and Bethany Sinclair vanished the weekend of Feb. 3, 2001.
    "When they came up missing, I kept thinking they'll come walking through my door," said Mary Lewis, Tina Sinclair's mother. "A knock on my door and they'd be standing there. I couldn't let go."

    For the family of Tina and Bethany Sinclair, the mystery and heartache remain. Tina Sinclair was described as a "carefree and happy" 34-year-old. Her daughter, 15-year-old Bethany, was a typical teenager.

    DECADE OF QUESTIONS

    A decade has passed since Tina M. Sinclair and her 15-year-old daughter Bethany vanished from their Chesterfield home.

    They were last seen Feb. 3, 2001; their bodies were never found. Although the Sinclairs are officially listed as missing persons, investigators have said they are treating the disappearances as unsolved homicides.

    For most of their family, hope of finding the Sinclairs alive has faded.

    Instead, they wish that one day they’ll be able to bury the mother and daughter and, if they were murdered, that justice will be served.

    With all due respect and for legal purposes, so that I may remain unharmed, it is important that I make it clear to the readers and posters that I appreciate your support. However although I have made an occassional post on this site, I am NOT responsible for that which has been posted here, the opinions and outlook of others is not of any doing of mine. Some of the information here is not completely accurate as is the case with many sites that have chosen to post this case on the web.
    Thank you for your continued support,
    Sharon Garry

    For Immediate Release
    June 17, 2014

    Recent Law Enforcement Activity in Hinsdale Regarding the 2001 Disappearance of Tina and Bethany Sinclair from Chesterfield, NH

    New Hampshire Attorney General Joseph A. Foster, New Hampshire State Police Colonel Robert Quinn, and New Hampshire Fish and Game Colonel Martin Garabedian announce that there are ongoing diving operations in Hinsdale, New Hampshire near the Vernon Dam. Those operations are part of a missing person's investigation into the 2001 disappearance of Bethany Sinclair and her mother Tina Sinclair.

    Bethany and Tina Sinclair were last seen together in Chesterfield, NH during the weekend of February 3-4, 2001. Prior to that weekend, Tina and Bethany lived in West Chesterfield at the residence of Tina's boyfriend, Eugene Van Bowman at 182 Mountain Road. Tina last went to her job and Bethany last attended school on February 2, 2001. Tina was 36 years old when they went missing. Bethany was just 15 years old.

    The searches being conducted on land and in the area of the dam today and tomorrow are not because of any new leads or information. Instead, while dives have been conducted on the Connecticut River in the past, new techniques, training, and resources gained in past years have made it possible to search additional areas not previously accessible to searchers.

    In addition to the New Hampshire Fish and Game Dive Team, and the New Hampshire State Police Marine Patrol Unit, the New Hampshire Cold Case Unit is thankful for the additional assistance from the Massachusetts State Police Underwater Recovery Team and the Vermont State Police SCUBA Team in conducting these searches.

    CHESTERFIELD, N.H. —
    A mother and daughter from West Chesterfield have not been seen since 2001, and the case has gone cold.

    Bethany and Tina Sinclair

    -- Last seen: Weekend of Feb. 3 and 4, 2001
    -- Case status: Missing persons

    Police said Tina Sinclair, 34, and her daughter Bethany, 15, disappeared soon after Tina had an argument with her boyfriend, Eugene Van Bowman.

    Tina, a home nurse who had just finished cosmetology school, last went to her job on Feb. 2, 2001, the same day Bethany last went to school. Bethany also had her first movie date hours before she disappeared.

    The pair were last seen together during the weekend of Feb. 3-4, 2001. Before the weekend, they lived at Bowman's riverfront home in West Chesterfield.

    The two disappeared, with Tina leaving behind her car, her belongings and her pet cat.

    The mystery deepened when, on Feb. 5, 2001, an unknown woman called Keene High School to report that Bethany would not be at class. Family members told WMUR in 2011 that they know who made the phone call but couldn't share the name because it's key to the police investigation.

    Family friends described Tina as carefree, happy and fun, and Bethany as the typical teenager who loved music and was a great student.

    According to her sister, the family did not approve of Tina's "stormy" relationship with Bowman, who was a convicted sex offender.

    Investigators searched Bowman's home and the river behind the home numerous times.

    In 2014, dive teams searched a half-mile area around the Vernon Dam in nearby Vernon, Vermont, for any signs of the missing pair. Crews used side-scan sonar and sector sonar in the search.

    Authorities did not say if any of the searches turned up any leads.

    Authorities said they believe Tina and Bethany Sinclair are dead and died under suspicious circumstances.

    Investigators consider Bowman the primary person of interest in the case.

    Can you help police solve this case? Submit a tip to the New Hampshire Cold Case Unit.

    Pretty sure that there are at least a couple cases in which psychics have helped solve .

    Weird question but did that boyfriend ever refer to you or anyone else as her "sissy" or her as yours by any chance? Do you think there's any possibility that this guy might have some kind of ties to the state of Georgia at all? If so I would like to confirm this information

    Tina and I were classmates in cosmetology school. I went to Keene Beauty Academy in 1999, and knew her then. We weren't very close but I've been internet searching on this case for years. I've decided to start going out to West Chesterfield to do some poking around. I doubt I'll find anything, but I'm curious.
