This event takes place two days prior to the anniversary of Michael’s disappearance.
On March 24, 1991, at approximately 12:30 p.m., four-year-old Michael Dunahee disappeared from the area of the Blanshard School playground, just a short distance away from his family. Many families and spectators were in the area at the time for a touch football game. An extensive search was launched for Michael which involved hundreds of volunteers and police from multiple agencies.
Michael was never found.
This became the largest investigation in VicPD history and remains one of the largest missing child investigations in Canada.
“We continue to investigate this file as we utilize new advancements in forensics and technology,” said Detective Sgt. Michelle Robertson of the Historical Case Review Section. “We are grateful for the assistance of the public in providing tips, and we remain committed to solving Michael’s disappearance.”
