Katy Lynn Mitchell (Born 1979) was a young woman who disappeared alongside Mary Sinclair and Milton Menzies.

Case

Katy and her mother, Mary, were passengers on a single engine Cherokee 140 flying from Poplar River to Fairford First Nation. The pilot was Milton, who was a retired Air Canada pilot that regularly flew to northern Manitoba as a missionaire. At 10:30 A.M., Milton sent out two distress calls due to engine troubles; the plane was heading for the water and he was attempting to land on Reindeer Island.

Several parties carried out a massive search by air, but could not search the water due to the amount of ice. The trio was presumed dead not long after their disappearance; they likely died either from drowning or from the impact of the crash.
