  • Details of Disappearance
    On July 3, 1960, police received a report of a lost child in the Red Lake area, 45 miles Northwest of Kamloops.

    21-month-old Edna Bette-Jean Masters, known to the family as Bette-Jean, was last seen playing with family and friends at a friends residence.

    Edna Bette-Jean Masters was never found and no evidence of what happened to her was located.

    In 1960, the area was searched extensively by volunteers, police, airplane and police dog. The search included the yard, surrounding forests, ponds and roadways.

    The RCMP have also attempted to identify and wished to speak to the male and female who were seen in the area in a rust colored 1959 Chevrolet Car with "cat eye" or "bat wing" style tail lights and with Alberta plates. The couple is described as being in their late twenties.
