Noreen Anne Greenley (born May 16, 1950) was a teenager who was last seen leaving a friend's house.

Case

On the night of Noreen's disappearance, she spent the night with her friend, Bonnie Wilkins, and Bonnie's boyfriend, Gary Woolner. The trio played bowling at the Liberty Bowl on Baseline Road, ate dinner at Sam's Restaurant on 14 Division Street, then went to Bonnie's house at the corner of Waverly Road and King Street, the latter being Highway 2 at the time.

Bonnie and Gary wanted to spend some time alone, so Noreen left Bonnie's house around 11:00 to 11:30 P.M. for the bus stop across the street from Bonnie's house. While waiting at the bus stop, Noreen went back to Bonnie's house to speak with her one last time, and left again. Noreen hasn't been seen since and the bus driver said she never boarded the bus when he was interviewed.

Around the same time Noreen was last seen, a witness saw a young girl get into a vehicle with a man wearing a black fedora. The car was blue, in good condition, and either a 1957-1959 Ford Prefect or Renault automobile. The same vehicle was seen by Noreen's 12-year-old sister, Joyce, and one of Joyce's friend's near the Greenley family home on Holt Road. The vehicle swerved by and nearly hit them. Joyce believes she heard a scream from inside the vehicle, presumably Noreen. Noreen's father and brother attempted to chase the vehicle, unaware of the possibility of Noreen being inside it, but couldn't find the car.

A couple of months after Noreen's disappearance, her parents flew out to Calgary, Alberta, due to a possible sighting of Noreen "working as a domestic" in the city. It's unknown if Noreen was actually in Calgary. If she was in Calgary, she might've dyed her hair black and lived in an apartment on Carlton Street.

Noreen's parents passed away before Noreen could be found. Her father died of an aneurysm several years after her disappearance and her mother developed an alcohol addiction. Noreen was the third child of seven children and her three youngest siblings ended up in foster care when their mother could no longer take care of them.
