Suspicious Disappearance of Brianne Wolgram

Brianne Wolgram

Revelstoke, British Columbia — Brianne Wolgram was just 19 years old at the time of her disappearance. Many people viewed her as shy or timid. Those who were lucky enough to get to know her would say she was outgoing, fun, and absolutely hilarious.

Over two decades ago, Brianne seemingly vanished without a trace from her hometown of Revelstoke, B.C.

According to reports, Brianne was last seen on September 5, 1998, around 11:30 p.m at the Revelstoke 7-11. She was in the company of three other young unidentified women. Brianne was supposed to meet up with a friend that night, but never arrived.


Five days later, Brianne's newly purchased black Acura Integra with gold-coloured rims was found in the ditch 16 kilometres up a logging road towards Alkolkolex Falls. Her wallet, drivers license and $200 in cash were still in the car.

Hundreds of people searched the woods, boats scanned the shores of rivers and planes and helicopters provided air support. There was even a $20,000 reward for information that would lead to Brianne, but no one stepped forward.

Brianne resided with her parents, Sheryl and Cliff. She has two older brothers, Troy and Todd, who were not living at home during the time of Brianne's disappearance.

On March 25, every year, her mother burns a candle to commemorate her birthday.

It's to light the way home," said Sheryl Wolgram, mom.

Sheryl said in many ways, it's like her daughter disappeared yesterday. She has good days and bad days.

"It's like a radio dial in my head. Sometimes I need to change the channel."

Sheryl finds going to funerals particularly challenging, because at funerals there's closure. She doesn't have that.

Anna Swayze, friend of Brianne's, started a GoFundMe to collect money to offer a reward for information that will lead to Brianne's whereabouts.

Not long before she disappeared, Brianne had purchased a black Acura Integra with gold-coloured rims that was her pride and joy. It was in pristine condition and she made sure to take good care of it. That last summer was filled with "Slurpees", rocky beaches, and the loud blaring of Beastie Boys from her new car.


Swayze wants the RCMP to release photos taken on scene of Brianne's car when it was found.

"It should get people talking about it again, regardless if it's for good or bad" Swayze said.

Anyone with information about the circumstances surrounding Wolgram's disappearance is asked to contact the RCMP or Missing Children Society of Canada at 1-800-661-6160.

Random violent crime seems less common. There are definitely people caught in the wrong place at the wrong time that end up victims, but generally the serious assaults/stabbings are between people known to each other.
