It’s been 60 years since Noreen Anne Greenley vanished in Bowmanville, but her family members are still looking for answers.
Durham Regional Police will hold a news conference to discuss the case on Sept. 14, which marks the 60th anniversary of Greenley’s disappearance.
The teen was last seen on Sept. 14, 1963, after spending the evening bowling and going out to eat with some friends. She said goodbye to her companions while walking home, crossing the street to catch the King Street bus home to Maple Grove, but was never seen again.
To this day, her fate remains a mystery, although her family has never given up hope of getting answers, making frequent public appeals for information. Police have continued to investigate tips into the disappearance, including an extensive excavation in the area of Regional Road 57 and Concession 8 in October 2018. The excavation was the result of a tip from a man who said his father admitted to killing Greenley and concealing her body inside a vehicle he had buried in the vicinity of Concession 8 and 57. The excavation unearthed no new clues, however, and once again, the trail ran cold.
Anyone with information about the disappearance can contact Durham Regional Police at 905-579-1520. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Durham Regional Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.durhamregionalcrimestoppers.ca.
