  • Details of Disappearance
    Tucker went missing on Valentine’s Day 1983, after having fled her Lakeshore Road West home following an argument with her mother.

    Six months later, her friend Jinisina ‘Jan’ Stonehouse also disapperared. In 1987 there was a confirmed sighting of Tucker and Stonehouse in the Huntsville area. Investigators are convinced the disappearances are linked.

    Tucker — after discovering she was pregnant — had left her family home in Oakville and moved in with her boyfriend elsewhere in town. She stayed only a matter of weeks because there was conflict over another man she was seeing in Toronto. Tucker, who was in Grade 10 at the former General Wolfe High School on McCraney Street, left her boyfriend’s home, but after a week with no word from her, she was reported missing by her boyfriend’s father.
    After that Tucker contacted her mother through a payphone in Huntsville, Ontario, calling collect a couple of times. So she was alive and well at least a month afterwards. Confirmed sightings continued to come in 1985 in downtown Toronto and in 1987 in the Haliburton area.
