Has anyone heard the resolve of the Joyce Burns missing persons case. Joyce Burns is a 50 year old from Sudbury area, reportedly missing July 12, 2009. She was last seen with an unknown mail in the Isabel area, reportedly had an unknown internet date taking her to Wasaga Beach, and was to return on July 14th. She did not show up for work. Her family reported her missing and stated the behavior is unlike her. I have tried for a year to find word on whether she was ever found, or whether she came home from her trip. No word.

It seems odd that 50 year-old Joyce Burns and this unidentified male were going to travel 300 kms for a 2-day trip to Wasaga Beach - a place notorious for teens to party and cause trouble 24/7 in the summer.  They would have passed many other nice places if travelling down Highway 69 to Highway 400, which is pretty much the only way to get there.

She was last seen on a Sunday, according to reports, and was to return to work on Wednesday.  Travel would have taken up most of the time.

From what I gather, it seems her internet date may be from the Wasaga area. Or, in the least wanted to meet her there. It doesn't appear by the newspaper articles that any one knows whether she made it there or not, surely didn't come home on time. But, I have not found a mention of her being found, coming home or listed on the OPP missing persons site.

I wonder if Ms. Burns was found and if so, if she was found safely.  In the following police brief there is a LE phone number. I wonder if anyone that lives in the Sudbury area could call the police at that number and receive an update. 705-675-9171

She is not listed on their missing person site at http://www.gsps.ca/en/crimefiles/historicalmissingpersons.asp

I find it odd we never heard anything more.

The public is being asked to help find 50-year-old Joyce Burns, who was last seen on July 12 near Isabel Street with an unknown man, police said.

The pair was supposed to be going to Wasaga Beach, police said. She was supposed to return July 14, but she has not been seen or heard from. She also did not show up for work at 9:30 a. m. Wednesday.

Family members called Greater Sudbury Police because they are concerned for her safety and this behaviour is abnormal. Wasaga Beach OPP has been notified and will be checking the area for her.

Burns is described as 4-foot-8, Caucasian with short, straight, black hair.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 675-9171.
