Story of Lora Frank

Lora Frank, 19, was the youngest of five children. Her family and friends called her Lora.

She was diagnosed with schizophrenia and was living with her brother and his spouse in Watson Lake, Yukon, where a revolving door of psychiatrists visited every month.

Lora moved to Whitehorse to live in assisted living several months before she disappeared. She was last seen in the Yukon between late 1988 and early 1989.

Her family tried to report her missing right away, and say the police didn’t take it seriously and she wasn’t officially reported missing until 1993. Her case remains open.
