  • 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.
