What happened to Eileen? Family seeks answers 60 years after PEI woman’s disappearance

What happened to Eileen Faye Williams?

The missing woman’s family is still trying to answer that question, 60 years after she disappeared without a trace on Prince Edward Island.

Now, Williams’ family has teamed up with a retiring RCMP officer in the hopes of finding new information that could help solve one of Prince Edward Island’s oldest cold cases.

“We know that time is not on our side, and that anyone who knows what happened to Eileen may not be around much longer,” said her family in a statement released this week.

“We want people to know that Eileen was a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a cousin and a friend — not a day goes by that we don’t think about her.”

The 19-year-old woman was last seen on Aug. 6, 1962.

The youngest of seven siblings, the teen grew up in Beach Point, P.E.I., located roughly 30 kilometres southeast of Montague, P.E.I.

Williams eventually moved to Hamilton, Ont., but she would come home to P.E.I. every summer to visit her family.

Police say she disappeared during one of her annual trips home and was never seen or heard from again.
