September 5th will mark the 13th anniversary of the suspicious disappearance of Revelstoke teen Brianne Wolgram. As part of their ongoing investigation into Brianne's disappearance, the Missing Children Society of Canada (MCSC) is asking that anyone with information surrounding the circumstances of Brianne's disappearance to come forward.

"We are confident that someone knows what happened to Brianne and holds the key to bringing the answers that her family has long awaited," said Wendy Christensen, Manager of Investigations at MCSC.

"We know that this long weekend, the anniversary of Brianne's disappearance, will be a time of reflection for anyone who knew Brianne and anyone who knows what happened to her. We are reaching out again to connect with people in the area who hold information, and encourage them to do what's right for Brianne."

Brianne disappeared from Revelstoke on the Labour Day long weekend, Saturday, September 5th, 1998. Brianne was last seen that night before 11:30pm at a 7-11 store in Revelstoke. She was driving her black 1989 Acura Integra, which had distinctive gold rims and was bearing BC license plates GMN 661. Brianne had made plans to meet a friend and go to one of many parties happening that long weekend. She was never seen again. Brianne's vehicle was found 5 days later on a logging road south of Revelstoke.

"It's been 13 years since Brianne disappeared, but it's never too late to come forward and do the right thing for her and her family," Christensen continued. "It is important that people know that they may possess knowledge which they believe to be trivial in nature but in fact could be the link that is needed to solve this case."

MCSC is the only national non-profit organization that actively investigates abducted and missing children. Anyone with information about Brianne's disappearance is asked to contact MCSC confidentially at 1-800-661-6160 or tips@mcsc.ca.
