Story of Cecilia Nikal

Cecilia Nikal was 15-years-old and new to Vancouver when she vanished. She arrived in the city on Aug. 1, 1989, to visit her mother, but she soon left home to live on the streets.


Her mom says she saw her daughter for the last time in October 1989. Another family member reported Cecilia moved to Vancouver Island, but that was never confirmed.


Cecilia’s cousin, Delphine Nikal, vanished near Smithers, British Columbia on June 13, 1990.
