Henrietta Millek's mother Verona Ittulak

The young woman from Nain went missing in St. John's thirty years ago. No trace of her has ever been found. Police believe she met with foul play, and they have had suspects over the years, but have lacked the evidence needed to lay a charge. Now, they're hoping new forensic techniques will allow them to get useable DNA from the purse she left in the bar where she was last seen. Henrietta Millek's family has had to live with the mystery of her disappearance for three decades. Recently, her mother, Verona Ittulak, did an interview about her daughter. She spoke through interpreter, Gordon Obed. She began by talking about what led to her daughter's decision to leave Nain for St. John's.
