Olimpia Mikszan, Abbotsford, B.C.

Olimpia Mikszan, 18, was last seen on June 21, 1996, outside her rental suite. Having just completed high school with honours, the talented art student was disappointed she was not accepted into the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vancouver.

Olimpia had recently told friends she was going on a hitchhiking trip across Canada and that she might go backpacking elsewhere in British Columbia.

Police say she left nearly all her belongings at her residence. Her wallet with about $130 cash, a blue backpack and her Canadian citizenship papers were the only things missing.

Olimpia loved jewellery. She may be wearing a delicate gold-coloured chain of small white pearls, spaced about 40 millimetres apart, and a ring made of 14-karat reddish-coloured gold with a coral stone. The ring was given to Olimpia at her First Communion at the age of nine. Most of her jewellery was left behind in her apartment.

Olimpia, who was born in Poland and immigrated to Canada with her family in 1990, speaks accented English. Her most striking feature is her long, naturally curly, chestnut hair.

According to Det. Sherryl Yaciansky of the Abbotsford police, Olimpia?s personal information has been flagged nationwide with police departments, Canada Customs, missing persons? registries and other government agencies. Police are at a loss to explain what happened to her.

Though she?d been living on her own for about a year prior to her disappearance, Olimpia often visited her family for dinners and to take her two younger sisters on outings.

Her mother describes Olimpia as caring, well mannered and clean living, a loving daughter and an ?independent soul.?

?The younger children always ask about their sister. She?s still in our hearts, and we love her very much.?

20 years missing.
