RCMP seek assistance in disappearance


It has been nine years ago today that Jennifer Catcheway was supposed to celebrate her 18th birthday surrounded by family and friends. Instead, her family and police began what has turned into a nearly decade-long search for answers into what happened to Jennifer.

The last time Jennifer was seen was on June 19, 2008, in Grand Rapids, Manitoba. After numerous searches were conducted and numerous witnesses were spoken to, RCMP ruled Jennifer’s disappearance a homicide, but her remains have never been found.

“This has been a very long road for the Catcheway family,” said Cpl. Sean Farrell of the RCMP Major Crime Unit and lead investigator into Jennifer’s death. “I cannot imagine what they have had to endure during the last nine years. We work closely with the family and continue to investigate. We encourage anyone with information to come forward and contact police. Please don’t assume we know what you know. If you know anything, please reach out.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact their local RCMP detachment or call Manitoba Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477, submit a secure tip online or text “TIPMAN” plus your message to CRIMES (274637).
