Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Leonette Purcell, a 56-year-old homemaker has not been seen or heard from since she disappeared from her Grand Lake home near Fall River on the morning of December 16, 2004. The family home is situated at 5560 Highway 2, a few kilometres from Halifax International Airport. Items in the Purcells' home "were discovered to be out of place or disturbed contrary to normal routine and appeared to be of a suspicious nature". Police believe she has met with foul play and are keeping the file open. An extensive ground, air and water search, in Grand Lake, over several days failed to reveal clues about her whereabouts. Her personal banking and communications devices have not been accessed since her disappearance." Investigators are interested in identifying two unidentified males who were seen at about 10 am on a security camera at the Enfield Irving Big Stop, one of whom the camera caught calling the Purcell home on the morning Mrs. Purcell disappeared. That call lasted up to four minutes. Her husband saw the security video and didn't recognize either of the men. Her family is filing a court application to have her declared legally dead.
