Kenneth James Schmit
Missing since September 22, 1966 from St. Walburg, Saskatchewan, Canada
Circumstances of Disappearance
On the 22nd of September, 1966, Kenneth Schmit was last seen at 22:30, leaving a residence in St. Walburg, SK.
Schmit was a barrister and solicitor, practicing in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan.
On September 21, 1966, Schmit traveled from Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, to North Battleford, Saskatchewan. He telephoned his wife that day (she was in Prince Albert) and advised her that he was going fishing with a friend, Horace Green, and that he was going to look into the purchase of a new car.
Green and Schmit had traveled to Saint Walburg to the home of a Mr. Romphf, arriving there around 18.00 on September 22nd. Arguments developed between Schmit and Romphf and Schmit left the home of Romphf that evening around 22.00. He has not been seen or heard of since that date.
Schmit was in good health, enjoyed a happy home life and had no reason to disappear. Since his disappearance no checks have been cashed on his bank account nor have his credit cards been used.
Numerous searches of the area were conducted, however, Schmit was not located. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police Detachment at North Battleford searched the Saint Walburg area with police dogs and police and civilian personnel. That area is heavily wooded and marshy with bears.
