  • Details of Disappearance
    Norman M. Hennel, in his 60s, of Yellowknife was last seen on Monday, September 3, 2007 when he was dropped off by plane in the Keel Lake area located approximately 80 kilometres northwest of the MacMillan pass on the Yukon/ Northwest Territory border. Hennel was first reported missing on October 1, 2007. The RCMP immediately attempted multiple air searches of the Keel Lake area which were hampered due to poor weather conditions. The area is not accessible from the ground at this time of year due to snow/ ground conditions. On October 8, 2007, a thorough search of the area's camp and cabins showed no signs of human activity. RCMP investigators are unable to determine if Hennel is still in the Keel Lake area. It is possible that Hennel may have obtained a ride on the North Canol highway and travelled to British Columbia, Alberta or Northwest Territory.
