Leonette Purcell

File Number: 104200136

Grand Lake, Nova Scotia: The Government of the Province of Nova Scotia is offering rewards of up to one hundred and fifty thousand dollars ($150,000) for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the disappearance of Leonette Marie PURCELL.

Leonette Purcell, a 56-year-old homemaker, has not been seen or heard from since she disappeared on December 16, 2004, from her Grand Lake home situated near the Halifax International Airport. Items in the Purcells' home appeared out of place or disturbed contrary to normal routine. An extensive search in the area of Grand Lake failed to reveal her whereabouts. Her personal banking and communications devices have not been accessed since her disappearance.

Investigators are interested in identifying two unidentified males who were seen on a security camera at the Enfield Irving Big Stop, one of whom the camera caught calling the Purcell home on the morning Mrs. Purcell disappeared. Neither of these men were identified. The investigation is ongoing and police are asking for the public's assistance.

Any person with information regarding the person(s) responsible for the disappearance of Leonette Marie PURCELL should call the Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program at 1-888-710-9090.

The reward is payable in Canadian funds and will be apportioned as deemed just by the Minister of Justice for the Province of Nova Scotia. Employees of law enforcement and correctional agencies are not eligible to collect this reward.
