We left Sudbury on Saturday September 17, 1966 to go camping at Grundy Provincial Park.

The park gate was unattended after Labour Day weekend. The Ministry of Natural Resources would come around at night and collect the camping fees. So there was nobody at the gate.

In the afternoon, Claire and I and our four kids, Joanne, Claude, Lise and Diane decided to go to the beach. I went fishing on the dock about 500 ft away from our camping ground, while Claire, Joanne, Claude, and Lise looked for frogs. Diane was scared of the water so she played in the sand closer to the bushes. After awhile Diane wanted to go back to the trailer to be with her grand-parents (pepere and memere) and I said I would bring her back. One of the kids had tangled the line on the fishing rod. I work to fix the line but when I looked back Diane was gone so Claire ran back to the trailer to see if she was there but she wasn´t.

We all started to run around and shouting her name but with no luck. After a while we called in the O.P.P.

When the O.P.P. arrived at the park I asked them to put road blocks and notify the USA and Canada borders because I had a feeling that she wasn´t in the park. The police said we would find her in the park. They concentrated their search by the lake. All night we kept driving the roads yelling and listening but were met with no answer. The next day the O.P.P. brought in divers to search the lake but I kept telling them she is not there because she was afraid of the water but they kept searching the lake.

After a few days, they brought in about 20 O.P.P. officers to head the ground search that lasted about a month and no clues were found as to what happened to her or her disappearance.

They also brought in blood hounds dogs to see if they could pick up her scent or any trace of her. The dogs kept going back and forth to where our trailer was parked because Diane had walked that trail a few times that day.

Every spring and fall I would go back and look around in case something would come up.

There were all kinds of rumors going on but nothing concrete came out. A few years later there was a rumor that bones were found in an outhouse at Grundy Park and they thought it was her. This turned out to be false. It was bones from a dog.
