HALIFAX: The RCMP have released an age progression sketch of Allan Kenley Matheson, who went missing 25 years ago.
Matheson was last seen September 21, 1992 on Main Street in Wolfville, wearing blue jeans, a purple t-shirt, a red and black backpack, and a ball cap.
“It is the 25th year since he disappeared,” said Cpl. Jennifer Clarke. “It’s a good time to maybe bring the matter to the public’s attention, to try and renew interest in the file, not that there isn’t any interest in the file.”
Clarke said they want to find out what happened to Matheson.
“I can’t really speaks to specifics on the investigation, but I can tell you we’re using this opportunity to do a release again on the anniversary of the disappearance and also make use of our forensic sketch artist,” said Clarke, adding it is an active investigation.
A release from the police stated there has been no contact from Matheson to family members or friends and there has been no activity on his bank account since Matheson went missing.
“Not knowing what happened to my son has been devastating for our family and has made it extremely difficult to move forward,” stated Sarah MacDonald, Matheson’s mother, in a press release. “I believe someone out there knows something that may help piece together what happened. I’m urging anyone who remembers anything, regardless of how insignificant it may seem, to please come forward.”
Police added the case to the Nova Scotia Department of Justice’s Reward for Major Unsolved Crimes Program in 2012.
Anyone with any information on the file is asked to contact the RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
