  • Brown, curly hair that parted in the center and had bangs.
  • Green eyes.
  • A faint scar is on her left cheek.
  • Two moles are on her abdomen.
  • Thin build.

Clothing and Belongings

  • A long, maroon and pink dress with faint white flowers, short sleeves, a drawstring that crisscrossed at the back, and front buttons.
  • Brown and red, closed-toe sandals.
  • Dawn might've had a dark duffle bag with her.


Around eighteen years prior to Dawn's disappearance, Dawn suffered from a brain clot that stopped her heart. She was revived, but the brain damage from the cardiac arrest caused her to have short term memory loss and would easily become disoriented. She was then placed into the North Bay Psychiatric Hospital.

At approximately 5 P.M. on the day of Dawn's disappearance, hospital staff noticed she did not come out to the common room for dinner. They immediately started searching the hospital grounds and along Highway 11. The North Bay Police Service were informed the next morning about Dawn's disappearance.

Dawn had run away from the hospital multiple times in an attempt to see her children, but was always found either on hospital grounds or hitchhiking along Highway 11. She might've attempted travelling to Kirkland Lake, where her children lived, or Sudbury, where her children's guardians planned on moving them to.
