Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
On August 13, 1967, Sylvia Klayh was at the family cabin at Brereton Lake, Manitoba with her father and two siblings. Mr. Klayah needed a rag to wipe up some varnish and he asked Sylvia to go get a rag from outside. A verbal disagreement occurred between the two and Sylvia went into her bedroom for a short time and then left the cottage without saying anything at approximately 11:00 a.m. When she did not return by 2:00 p.m. for lunch, her father became worried and reported that she was missing. Sylvia left the house wearing only a blouse, shorts and sandals. She did not take any other belongings with her. A ground search of the bush area surrounding the Klayh's cabin was done a week after she went missing. This search failed to locate any trace of Klayah. No trace of her has been found to date. As Sylvia left her parents cabin on her own accord, she was initially considered a "runaway". It is possible though that she met with foul play as she never attempted to contact any of her family members again. She has now been missing for 40 years.
