The family of Helen Claire Frost is still seeking answers as to the whereabouts of their sister and daughter who went missing on October 13, 1970 … 45 years ago today.

Helen’s family will never give up hope of finding out what has happened to her said Sandy Barnet, Helen’s only sibling, in a press release. We don’t know if she was taken by someone or left on her own accord and doesn’t know how to resurface. Is she alive or deceased? We just know that we miss her each and every day, for all these many years.

The RCMP have not given up hope and are seeking answers too.

Of all the many investigations that we are involved with over our careers, missing persons weigh on us more than most others; and this case is no different said Sgt. Todd Wilson of the Prince George RCMP’s Serious Crime Unit. We want to find Helen and be able to bring her home to her family. Someone out there has information that can help us; that can bring answers to Helen’s family.

During the late evening of October 13, 1970, Frost left her apartment located in the 1600 block of Queensway in Prince George. She had told her sister she was going for a walk. Helen did not return home and has not been seen since.

The Prince George RCMP conducted an extensive search, but were unable to locate any evidence or information that could lead to Helen’s whereabouts. Although Helen had faced a number of emotional challenges in her life at that time, investigators have continued to look at all possible reasons for her disappearance.

Frost was 17 years old at the time of her disappearance. At that time she was described as:

  • 165 cm (5’5)
  • Slim build
  • Blue eyes
  • Short brown hair
  • Fair complexion

She was last seen wearing a 3/4 length navy blue coat and blue pants.

In 2004, an aged enhanced image of what Helen might have looked like at age 52 was created.
