It has been seven years since Lorlene Bone last spoke to her mother. On February 29, 2016, Lorlene called home for the last time. On March 9, 2016, Lorlene was reported missing to Swan River RCMP. She was 31 years old at the time.
Originally from Wuskwi Sipihk Cree Nation (Indian Birch First Nation), Lorlene is a mother, a daughter, and a sister. She is now a grandmother, but has not met her grandchildren. She has missed seven years of time with her family and friends.
“I have been with this detachment since the initial report about Lorlene came in,” said Sergeant Steve Henson of the Swan River RCMP. “This is an investigation that has really had an impact on me, and I want to be able to provide answers to her family. We have been looking for her so long, conducting numerous searches, and following up on many tips, but nothing has led us to the answers we seek.
I don’t want to provide false hope, and as investigators, we have to acknowledge that there is a chance Lorlene is no longer alive, but this investigation is still considered a missing person. We have not ruled this a homicide.”
The RCMP continues to receive tips about Lorlene’s disappearance, and investigators follow up on those tips closely. We continue to urge anyone with any information regarding Lorlene’s disappearance, or the days leading up to February 29, 2016, to call Swan River RCMP at 204-734-4686 Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477, or secure tip online at www.manitobacrimestoppers.com.
