Kellie Little (born Richard Little on March 12, 1969) was a transgender Nuchatlaht woman who disappeared from Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. Some databases may spell her name as Kelly or reference her by her birth name.

Case

Prior to disappearance

Kellie was born in Campbell River, British Columbia. Not long after Kellie's parents separated in 1972, she and her siblings were placed in foster care and grew up in the foster care system. At age fifteen, Kellie attempted to commit suicide. During Kellie's adult life, she'd been incarcerated in the Kent Prison for assault and began transitioning into a woman.

In late 1996 or early 1997, Kellie was visiting a friend at the Kent Prison where she met a friend of Robert Pickton's, Gina Houston. The two quickly became friends and Kellie rented a basement apartment from Gina.

At the time of Kellie's disappearance, she was a drug user who worked in the sex trade. Although she resided in Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, she was known to work in Coquitlam and Vancouver. Kellie had two regular customers: a Kent Prison warden and a Vancouver police officer.

Disappearance

When Kellie left her apartment on the night of her disappearance, Gina believed Kellie was going to see the police officer and expected her to return. Gina reported Kellie missing a week later; it was out of character for Kellie to abandon her pet cat. Kellie was also scheduled to attend a job seminar within the next few days in order to receive social assistance, but Kellie never showed up.

Not long after Kellie vanished, police searched Gina's property for Kellie after they received a report of a woman screaming in her backyard. They suspected Kellie was buried in Gina's yard, but there was no sign of her.

Kellie may use the following aliases: Allison, Cassie, Christine, Claudie, Cricket, Helen, Julie, and Kate for first names, and Lee, Munro/Monroe, Nielson, Numro/Numroe, and Savey for surnames.
