December 16, 2019, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia… Today marks the 15th anniversary of the disappearance of Leonette Purcell.

On December 16, 2004, 56-year-old Leonette Purcell of Grand Lake was reported missing by her family. She was last seen on the morning of December 16 at their Grand Lake residence but was not home later in the day when a family member returned home.
