Classification: Endangered Missing


Vital Statistics


Circumstances of Disappearance
Leigh Miner disappeared from the downtown Eastside of Vancouver in December of 1993. Miner is one of 68 missing women who disappeared within a 10-block strip of pavement in Vancouver's downtown East Side. Fifteen women are confirmed dead and Robert Pickton has been charged with their murders.
Miner began taking drugs after her husband's suicide in the late 1980s and gravitated to the downtown East Side from Nanoose Bay in the early 1990s. Her family knew something was wrong when she didn't show up for Christmas dinner with the family.
Police were reluctant to add Miner's name to the list of missing women until November of 2001.
