    On June 6, 1979 James Gordon Nevin departed from his residence in Amherstburg, Ontario heading west for a 2 week vacation
    with the intention of visiting relatives. Nevin had a grandson in Winnipeg, Manitoba and a son in Prince George, British
    Columbia. Neither relative had prior notification of Nevin's intentions to visit. On June 14, 1979 the RCMP responded to a
    call and Nevin's vehicle, a 1974 white/maroon Dodge Coronet, was located in a ditch between Rocanville, Saskatchewan and St.
    Lazare, Manitoba. Inquires reveal the vehicle was at this location since June 8, 1979. Nevin has never been seen again and
