Michelle Lise Wedge

File Number: 104200196

Moncton, New Brunswick - Michelle Lise Wedge had been left in the care of her older siblings and was riding her bike in the neighborhood as dusk was approaching.

Her older brother who was watching her, had friends over and no-one noticed that Wedge had disappeared until her sister got home around 21.00 and realized that Wedge wasn't in the yard playing.

Initial interviews with friends and neighbors determined that Wedge had last been seen at around 21:10, about 40 minutes after her brother recalled having heard her exiting the house to play outside.

Someone had seen her riding her Mustang-style bicycle north on Dominion Street, near the intersection with John Street, just a few houses away from her home. Another individual reported seeing the same thing at about the same time. Still another seemed to recall seeing a young girl getting into a car at that corner that night.

This case began as an abduction case, because of the testimony of two girls, who said that they had seen Michelle get into a car with a man, who had earlier tried to coax them into his vehicle. The girls gave a detailed description of this suspect, helped produce a composite sketch, and a Canada wide warrant was issued for the suspect. The suspect was described as follows:

Male, mid to late twenties, thick black hair and eyebrows, dark complexion, 2 inch scar on right side of face, thin mustache with full beard, dark, thick rimmed glasses. Speaks with a strange voice. Suspect drives a small, dark green car, with a black interior. (source: Telegraph-Journal)

In the July 11 newspaper article, Moncton police were expressing doubts about the statements of these two witnesses. They had indeed found a suspect matching the witnesses' description, and had questioned him, but then released him. The article suggested that the RCMP did not completely dismiss the statements of the two girls, but given that the RCMP website simply lists Michelle as a missing person suggests that they did not regain any confidence in their claims, over the course of their investigation.

Also, the suspect described by the girls is of such conspicuous characteristics, it is hard to imagine anyone matching that description evading detection for long, with a Canada wide warrant out for his arrest. Nevertheless, the other witnesses did corroborate the bit about the suspected vehicle being small and dark green in color.

Although it's been over 45 years since since she disappeared, the RCMP believe it's a case that can still be solved. If someone somewhere thinks of something, please contact the RCMP or Crimestoppers.

Jack Nutter

File Number: 104200133

Moncton, New Brunswick: The RCMP New Brunswick Major Crime Unit is seeking the public's help with an ongoing missing person investigation.

In April 2009, the family of Jack Nutter of Dieppe reported him missing. He had limited contact with his family and the last time they had heard from him was in July 2007.

Police consider the disappearance of Jack Nutter suspicious as he was no longer attending routine appointments or attending a rental property he owned on Universite Avenue in Moncton. Police have been actively following leads over the years to locate Mr. Nutter. At this point of the investigation, it is hoped someone may have information to assist police in locating him.

Jack Nutter was 65 years old in 2007. He had a thin build, weighed approximately 145 pounds (66 kg) and was approximately 5'7" (173 cm) tall. He has brown eyes and gray hair. He would now (2020) be 78 years old.

Police are asking anyone that may have known Jack Nutter, either personally or through business, and may have information on his whereabouts to contact them at 506-851-7281. Should you wish to remain anonymous, please contact Crime Stoppers toll free at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), or by Secure Web Tips at www.crimenb.ca.
