Story of Lana Derrick

Lana Derrick, 19, was a college student and visiting her mom in Terrace, B.C., when she went missing in the early hours of Oct. 6, 1995.


RCMP say she was last seen at a gas station on Highway 16, otherwise known as the Highway of Tears, just outside town early that morning, but her family believes the last place she was seen alive was her friend Clarice’s house in Terrace.


Since her disappearance, there has been no sign of her and her case is being handled by E-PANA, an RCMP task force that investigates deaths and disappearances tied to the Highway of Tears. Her case is still open.
