Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Bonnie Polwarth went missing on March 15, 1995 from Brandon, Manitoba. At the time of her disappearance she was a ward of Brandon Mental Health Centre and it is believed that she walked out of the facility on her own the day of her disappearance. She did not have a history of any drug use however she had been on medication in the past for depression. According to family members, she drank alcohol but not in excess. All of her family were from the Brandon area however her brother and her father lived in Alberta. The investigation to date has not revealed any clues to her disappearance. There are three possibilities: 1 - she took her own life. Some family members believe that she may have drowned herself in the flood that Brandon experienced in 1995. 2 - Someone murdered her. Some family members believe her ex husband who is now deceased may have killed her however those close to him feel that this was not possible 3 - That she is alive and living somewhere else however as she had two young children at the time she went missing, family members do not believe that she would have walked away from them.
