Police continue search for Shirley Lee Clethroe

The Fort St. John RCMP detachment is continuing the search for a woman that went missing three years ago.

Local mother of five, Shirley Lee Clethroe, went missing on June 9th, 2006. She was 45 years old at the time of her disappearance.

Clethroe was reported missing on June 17th, after she did not show up for work, and friends and family hadn’t seen her or talked to her. This was unusual for Clethroe.

At this time, police say they are not ruling out foul-play as a factor of her disappearance. Her file, however, remains a missing person case.

The Fort St. John RCMP detachment says police have exhausted numerous means of investigation, and is strongly urging anyone with information to come forward.

Clethroe is described as an Aboriginal woman. At the time of her disappearance, she had long black hair, weighed 120 pounds and is 5 foot 3 inches. She also had a small scar on the left side of her mouth and usually wore glasses.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the RCMP at 250-787-8140 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-222-TIPS.
