Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Ernest Robert Pfaff left home at approximately 8pm on December 31, 1973 to purchase a loaf of bread.
He was driving a 1972 Ford Maverick, light blue in colour, with red pin stripes on the sides, with possible licence plate CNH 175.
Pfaff was going through a tough time, especially with the recent death of his infant son. He had previously made a suicide attempt.
Former Chatham police service never received any tips or information about Pfaff's disappearance. The case was looked at in 1997 and information was submitted to the Violent Crime Linkage System. The case has been reopened again in 2015.
