Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
On February 7, 1971, Selina Wallace disappeared from the Cape Mudge Village. She had spent the day with family and friends socializing in Campbell River, BC.
Cape Mudge is located on the southwest tip of Quadra Island; and it is the traditional land of the We Wai Kai Nation. Selina is a member of the We Wai Kai First Nation.
In the evening, Selina and friends went to a pier near the family home. The family last saw Selina on the pier with a male friend.
When Selina did not return home the following day, family and community members searched the nearby area.
The tidal currents near the pier are extremely strong and any person in the water could travel a great distance in a short period of time.
Although her family resided at Cape Mudge, Selina also lived in Alert Bay and Campbell River. There is no information to indicate foul play was involved in her disappearance.
