September 21, 2022, Wolfville, Nova Scotia…Today marks 30 years since the disappearance of 20-year-old Allan “Kenley” Matheson from Wolfville.
In September 1992, Kenley was a student at Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. During his first two weeks of university, he had travelled with some friends to Corkum’s Island in Lunenburg County for the weekend. He returned to Acadia and attended a party on campus on the weekend of September 18 and was seen by his sister and others at Crowell Tower (Acadia University) on September 20. He was last seen by a friend walking on Main Street in Wolfville on September 21 wearing blue jeans, a purple t-shirt, a red and black backpack and a ball cap. There has been no contact with family members or friends and there has been no activity on his bank account since.
In 2012, Kenley’s case was added to the the Nova Scotia Department of Justice Reward for Major Unsolved Crimes Program which offers rewards of up to $150,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the disappearance for Kenley. The Provincial Rewards line is 1-888-710-9090. See link: https://novascotia.ca/just/Public_Safety/Rewards/case_detail.asp?cid=80
In 2017, as part of the continuing RCMP investigation, RCMP investigators released an age progression sketch of what Kenley may look like. The RCMP and Kenley’s family continue to ask for the public’s help in hopes of obtaining new information to assist in the investigation.
The investigation is continuing and anyone with information is asked to contact the Southwest Nova RCMP Major Crime Unit at 902-365-3120.
