Michelle Lise Wedge

File Number: 104200196

Moncton, New Brunswick - Michelle Lise Wedge had been left in the care of her older siblings and was riding her bike in the neighborhood as dusk was approaching.

Her older brother who was watching her, had friends over and no-one noticed that Wedge had disappeared until her sister got home around 21.00 and realized that Wedge wasn't in the yard playing.

Initial interviews with friends and neighbors determined that Wedge had last been seen at around 21:10, about 40 minutes after her brother recalled having heard her exiting the house to play outside.

Someone had seen her riding her Mustang-style bicycle north on Dominion Street, near the intersection with John Street, just a few houses away from her home. Another individual reported seeing the same thing at about the same time. Still another seemed to recall seeing a young girl getting into a car at that corner that night.

This case began as an abduction case, because of the testimony of two girls, who said that they had seen Michelle get into a car with a man, who had earlier tried to coax them into his vehicle. The girls gave a detailed description of this suspect, helped produce a composite sketch, and a Canada wide warrant was issued for the suspect. The suspect was described as follows:

Male, mid to late twenties, thick black hair and eyebrows, dark complexion, 2 inch scar on right side of face, thin mustache with full beard, dark, thick rimmed glasses. Speaks with a strange voice. Suspect drives a small, dark green car, with a black interior. (source: Telegraph-Journal)

In the July 11 newspaper article, Moncton police were expressing doubts about the statements of these two witnesses. They had indeed found a suspect matching the witnesses' description, and had questioned him, but then released him. The article suggested that the RCMP did not completely dismiss the statements of the two girls, but given that the RCMP website simply lists Michelle as a missing person suggests that they did not regain any confidence in their claims, over the course of their investigation.

Also, the suspect described by the girls is of such conspicuous characteristics, it is hard to imagine anyone matching that description evading detection for long, with a Canada wide warrant out for his arrest. Nevertheless, the other witnesses did corroborate the bit about the suspected vehicle being small and dark green in color.

Although it's been over 45 years since since she disappeared, the RCMP believe it's a case that can still be solved. If someone somewhere thinks of something, please contact the RCMP or Crimestoppers.

Chipman, New Brunswick: The West District RCMP are continuing to ask for the public's assistance in relation to a missing 58-year-old man from Chipman, N.B.

James Austen MacKey was reported missing to the RCMP after his vehicle was found abandoned on the Harley Road in Redbank, N.B., northeast of Chipman, on November 29, 2012. At the time, an extensive search of the area was conducted with the assistance of the RCMP helicopter, RCMP Police Dog Services and York-Sunbury Ground Search and Rescue, but nothing was found to indicate the whereabouts of Mr. MacKey.

In 2018, the photo (shown) police have released of James Austen MacKey was taken in 2012. He is described as approximately 5'8" tall, weighing 180 lbs with brown hair and green eyes.

"We have not given up trying to locate Mr. MacKey," says Cst. Phil Brannon of the Chipman RCMP. "Now that spring is here (2018), there will be more people out and about and perhaps in the woods. If anyone is in the Redbank area near the Harley Road and comes across anything unusual that they think may help us, please call police."

Anyone with any information on the whereabouts of James Austen MacKey or who may have seen or spoken to him prior to his disappearance is asked to call the West District RCMP at 506-357-4300.

Sabrina Polchies

File Number: 104200174

Sabrina Polchies, 22, was last seen alive on July 1, 2010, and found dead in a Salisbury, N.B., apartment five days later. RCMP officials ruled no foul play was involved. But her mother, Mary Polchies, says she thinks Sabrina ran into the wrong crowd.

Mary Polchies said she received a phone call from her daughter the day she died, and could hear men yelling abusive comments at her.

"She called me and she said, 'Mom, your worst nightmare came true.'" Mary said Sabrina told her she had befriended some people, but they had become mad at her. She said Sabrina didn't know where she was.

"In the background you can hear men talking, 'What the fuck you fucking squaw.' The phone went dead and I never heard from her again. I called the cops. My poor baby laid there for three days."

Sabrina's body was found on July 5 in a Salisbury, N.B., apartment. New Brunswick RCMP said there was no foul play in her death, and the case was concluded.Her friends and family were left with plenty of questions about her death.

Sabrina told her friends on Facebook that she was leaving for Moncton to "start a new life." "Its a big world out there and I want to c what it has to offer," she wrote to her friends.

In a Facebook group titled "Restinpeace Sabrina Polchies<3," a member wrote, "Who was the last to see her alive? What happened? When are the questions going to be answered?"

Mary said she can't remember whether RCMP officials explained their findings to her, but she knows she never received a coroner's report.

"It's like a blur," she said. "I don't know what happened to her. I really want to know. My poor baby never got justice."
