Still no trace of B.C. woman missing 12 years

The parents of a young woman missing since 1998 are hoping a campaign by the Missing Children Society will lead to information about their daughter.

The parents of a young woman missing since 1998 are hoping a campaign by the Missing Children Society will lead to information about their daughter.

Brianne Wolgram, 19, disappeared on the night of Sept. 5, 1998. The Revelstoke, B.C., resident was supposed to meet a friend at a local convenience store but she never showed up.

Her car, a black Acura Integra with distinctive gold rims, was found five days later on a logging road.

Her parents, Sheryl and Cliff Wolgram, say they've lived a "hellish nightmare" for the last 12 years.

"If there is anybody out there who knows anything, just give Crime Stoppers … a call. It's all I can say. I want to bring Brianne home," Sheryl Wolgram said.

The Missing Children Society is conducting a poster campaign in Revelstoke over the Labour Day weekend in an effort to jog people's memories about the case.

Wolgram hopes the posters will help them find information about Brianne's whereabouts.

"Every time we put posters out, it is just like it happened yesterday."

Dan Picken, an investigator with the non-profit organization, said the campaign is a good chance to reach people who may have been vacationing in the area when Wolgram disappeared.

"Someone knows what happened to Brianne," he said.

"It's been a long, long time. [The family has] not given up. They'd like some answers. I think we can all feel their pain when it comes to having a child missing," he said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Missing Children Society at 1-800-661-6160 or Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-8477.
