Janice Louise Howe
Missing since August 28, 1992 from Fort Garry in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
Classification: Endangered Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
On the night of Friday, August 28, 1992, 35-year old Janice Howe left her parents home in Fort Garry driving her father’s blue 1985 Olds Ciera. She has never been seen or heard from again.
It is unknown if she had any plans to meet anyone, however no one recalls seeing her and she never returned home. At 10:10 a.m. the following morning (Saturday, August 29), an Ontario Provincial Police Officer found the 1985 Olds Cierra that Ms. Howe had been driving parked off the side of the road, 19 miles east of Kenora, Ontario. There were no obvious signs that an assault had occurred in the car, however the rear floor mats and a 4’ x 8’ tarp from the trunk were missing.
As Ms. Howe’s father had just filled the car up with gas and recorded the mileage for gas consumption purposes before his daughter took it for a drive, police investigators know that the car had been driven for almost 550 kilometers before being abandoned outside of Kenora. Foul play is a possibility.
