The missing

I’ve been obsessed with finding the missing lately. All the podcasts dealing with the missing are queued up on my device. Recently I listening to the CBC podcast, Finding Cleo with Connie Walker. It was heartbreaking but so real. We should be all made to listen to the terrible tragedies that have happened to the indigenous people of Canada. Governments we elected have done wrong. Police agencies fail these people daily.

So one day I was on another missing persons site and a little face on a missing poster staring back that me connected with something inside of me. Compelling me to look further. She had a name Diane Lee Todd, 18 years old.

With little information to go on I search around a bit more and find out what she was wearing when she went missing.

No other picture is available and when I searched ancestry there was a birth but nothing else. I searched year books from schools around Annandale. No other photos have been found.

It struck me as sad that a young girl could disappear and there’s no activity ongoing to find out what happened to her. No pleas from parents or newspaper articles at the time talking about her disappearance. I searched Jane doe sites looking for a possible match and came across this reconstructed skull.

Her bone structure is similar. So many things are missing. This skull had to teeth, so no evidence of braces.

I reached out to some podcaster a and websleuth’s online forum and posted both pictures there.

Anyone have any more ideas?

Maudie

This movie was awesome!  I laughed, cringed, and cried.  Ethan Hawke (Everett Lewis) and Sally Hawkins (Maud Lewis) play the lead roles.  Sally Hawkins obviously put a lot of heart and soul into the role.  Ethan, I haven’t watch him in many roles, Dead Poets Society probably was the last one I saw.  I’m totally in his fan club now!  The Cinematography was beautiful.  Shot in NFLD but resembled Digby and Marshalltown N.S.  I was impressed.  

Things to do when you are mending from the flu….

Journaling …


Catch up on your fav Netflix series…


The series Shetland has me captivated by the history and folklore of The Shetland Islands.  The mysteries are great too.  Such beauty.  Folklore is interesting because there’s always some basis in fact.  Fishing out the fact from the fiction is the fun.  Mix in some genealogy and Archeaology and I’m hooked.   

Tracks

I’m so excited to share this movie review! I watched Tracks last evening. Found on Netflix. It’s based on a true life event and book by Robyn Davidson. She journeyed across the desert to the ocean with camels and just herself, it lasted 1700 miles and hundreds of days. It was fantastic, the storyline itself was amazing, the fact it’s true is almost unbelievable. I’ve since downloaded the book to read. Robyn Davidson’s adventures in the Australian Desert was inspiring and says a lot about basic human needs and desires. The story is filled with girl power. I laughed and cried (Well blubbered really). Worth seeing for sure!!
