Hi lostlinganer,

I'm not sure if you are aware but we no longer allow links to facebook or other blogs where people comment. One can enter facebook, twitter, etc when viewing most newspaper articles. That will take you to those sites but you would still have to log on.

Greenley Family has posted the name of the facebook page and (I believe) other groups as well.

I did find a facebook page, but not very detailed ... just support page.  I did notice someone asked about what crews were working on the highway development in the area at the time;  that brought to mind the fact that I read somewhere that rail lines had been abandoned in May of that year.  I wonder if those lines were being torn up in places that summer.

jmcc .... I wonder if you considered these old newspapers as a source of 1963 activities in the area at that time.... road construction, etc.   just thought it wouldn't hurt to throw it in for those who have the time to "dig".   http://ink.ourontario.ca/browse/acton/reel36/00373

Can anybody recall how far back in this thread (I can't remember for sure the discussion, but I know it was out there.... and I have always felt there was a lot of coincidence with this other case) .... I am wondering if those working Noreen's case at the home front has ever totally illuminated this man.

Many, many similar tragic God-forsaken cases indeed ... that leave us troubled and consume us forever... and mostly because of sealed lips. imo
 .... many could have been solved when they happened, if it weren't for fear, guilt, and/or lack of backbone and integrity.  ... and possibly karma already took down a few of the guilty.

A tip from a grown child pointing a finger at his/her father has occurred in this case. I hope this works out for the Greenley family.

Police investigating potential new lead in 55-year-old Bowmanville cold case.

A tip from someone in the community emerged, alleging their now-deceased loved one may have been responsible for Greenley’s death and disappearance.

Durham Regional Police said a man came forward to suggest that his father may have been involved.

The missing girl’s family worked with the Cold Case Society, who initiated a magnetic scan of a rural area near Highway 57 and Concession 8.

It is alleged that’s where Greenley’s body lies inside a ditched vehicle buried many years ago.

Police said officers are now investigating the credibility of the tip and the possibility that the girl may finally be found.

“We have information that there is a magnetic anomaly in the area,” Det.-Sgt. Mitch Martin told Global News.

“We need to investigate that a bit further. There’s other investigative techniques we can use to see if there’s anything in that area. We have our forensic identification specialists who specialize in recovering items that are hidden, so to speak.”

Martin said they reached out to the family that now owns the property where the site of interest is located.

“We’re going to look at whether it’s worth our time to look at using a ground penetrating radar, or if we’re just simply going to work towards excavation,” he said.

“It is private property … we need their consent or their permission to dig, and we’re working towards getting permission from them right now.”

If they receive approval to dig, they will need to then find someone to perform the excavation. Police said it could take another three weeks for the process to get under way.

Thanks for this update!
I’m hoping some answers come for the Greenley family with this development.
