Through a community tip, we have learned of an individual who may hold valuable information about Thelma’s disappearance. This person, who was in a position to observe Thelma, may not yet realize that they saw or heard something of value and for that reason, we want to speak to them. This individual is a driver of a gold-coloured 4-door sedan (believed to a 2005-2010 import, such as a Toyota, a Hyundai or a Honda, and was in good condition).
They may not live in the area surrounding the Civic park or even in the city of Winnipeg.
