Updated: Jul 7, 2022

Missing Since December 24, 1991

Featured in Episode 208

Shirley Lonethunder was born Jan. 3, 1966, and grew up in Saskatoon, which is a city in Saskatchewan, Canada. She was the oldest of five children and her siblings remember their big sister as stubborn and strong-willed. After the kids were grown, most of the family moved to the reserve in White Bear First Nations.

Shirley was back and forth between White Bear and Saskatoon, and by 1991, she was staying with her mom in Saskatoon with her two children. At the time, 25 year old Shirly had been struggling with drugs and it was rumored she was working in the sex trade as well, but this cannot be confirmed.

It was Christmas time in 1991 and the Lonethunder family was getting together in Saskatoon. Shirley’s son’s birthday was also on Christmas, and on the afternoon of Christmas Eve, Shirley went out to buy birthday presents and she never came back. Shirley was reported missing and as of today, she is listed as a historical missing persons case on the Saskatoon Police Service's website.

Shirley was 5'3 and 130 pounds at the time of her disappearance. She has black hair and brown eyes. She has a 4cm scar on her left cheek and a tattoo of a heart on her ankle. Shirley is a member of the White Bear First Nation near Carlyle, Saskatchewan.
