Man still searching for clues four years after daughter vanished

WINDSOR-- Ron Corbin sits in his living room surrounded by a maze of computer parts. A rollie cigarette hangs from his mouth as he fiddles with a circuit board.

A hobby he's picked up recently, fixing computers, keeps his mind off his daughter, Rhonda Wilson, who's been missing since August 7, 2002.

Rhonda Wilson, 31, a mother of three, was last seen in Kentville on Aug. 7, 2002. She was wearing dark blue jeans with gold zippered pockets, a jean jacket with an embroidered emblem, black high-heeled sandals and carrying a purse with little money.

That was the description released by police. And in many ways, that's the last thing the world learned about Rhonda Wilson.

Her father believes she was murdered, perhaps by someone she knew.

For the first year after she was gone, her dad never stopped looking for her body. Sometimes with friends, often alone, he scoured the woods around Kentville in search of her.

In the second year, he was still driven to find her. But over time, while the yearning to find his daughter hasn't lessened, searching has taken more and more out of him.

Last year, he suffered a nervous breakdown which he attributes to the stress of Wilson's disappearance.

``The desire has gone down a bit,'' he said. ``The first year it was a really big pull, the second as well. Now I just feel sort of defeated, you know. After a while it gets a little more discouraging.''

The search for Leslie Ann Conrad, who went missing from her Lower Wolfville, N.S., home on Oct. 5 and whose body was found near a remote road on Melanson Mountain on Nov. 22, brought all the nightmares back for Corbin.

He doesn't resent the police support Conrad's family had, but is angry his daughter's disappearance seemed to be almost ignored by authorities.

Conrad ``had more media attention and more search support than my daughter had in four years,'' Corbin said. ``There was no proper search done for my daughter.''

Corbin still believes his daughter was murdered and he's outraged the police didn't take that seriously.

``If someone's reported a missing person, it's their job to find them. That's what you call `to serve the public.'

``You have to get out there and do some leg work. They're not just going to pop out of a computer screen,'' he said, his voice cracking with emotion.

RCMP Const. Les Kakonyi said Wilson's type of case is especially difficult because police have no evidence to suggest she was murdered.

Kakonyi said investigators made several unsuccessful efforts to contact Corbin, who says police didn't keep him up to date on efforts to find his daughter.

``If he wants an update, he knows to contact us,'' Kakonyi said. ``She's not the only missing person in the province.''

Corbin's desperation has pushed him as far as contacting psychics in Nova Scotia, the United States and as far away as Australia.

The Women's Network's show, Rescue Mediums, which helps find lost people, shot a special segment on Wilson's disappearance and it aired Oct. 30.

``Do you know what it's like living in limbo not knowing where my daughter is?'' Corbin asked. ``It's torture.''

Episode 11 - Searching For Rhonda (Kentville)

An unassuming home on the East Coast harbours several spirits in this surprising episode. Jackie and Christine indentify several family members of the homeowners who have passed over in to the spirit world. The home's occupants have seen manifestations on their walls and in glass doors and have actually taken a photograph of what appears to be a ghostly soldier standing outside their home. But a far more significant spirit visits the Rescue Mediums. The spirit of Rhonda Wilson. Rhonda went missing from her Kentville home 31/2 years ago and has never been found. Police are now considering that the woman was murdered. Jackie and Christine become very connected and seem to be receiving messages from beyond the grave. They create a psychic drawing of her murderer and visit a location, covered in snow, where they believe her body is buried. As a result of these actions, the police have agreed to perform a groundsearch of the area as soon as the earth thaws in the coming Spring. [Top]

Cold Cases

A Letter from the Producers

During the filming of Season One of the show, Jackie and Christine came across two Cold Case files; that of Lois Hanna and Rhonda Wilson. To our knowledge, at this point, their whereabouts are still unknown. We have contacted the Ontario Provincial Police in Lois’ case and still have an on-going dialogue with them in the hopes of being some assistance to the police and to her family. In the case of Rhonda, we have sent information to her family and to the local RCMP detachment and the officers there have been very responsive in looking at our findings.

All of us at Rescue Mediums would like to see some resolution in these cases and in any other case that we come across. We will post any updates on our website as soon as we discover new developments. If you have any concrete information about either case, please get in touch with the OPP or the RCMP directly. You might be able to help.

This is a very emotional area for any family to deal with and we wish these two families Godspeed in finding answers to their questions about the disappearance of their loved ones.

Due to the nature of Rescue Mediums, we are unable to investigate any more Cold Cases during this Season or in Season Three.

Thank you for watching the show.

The Southwest Nova Major Crime Unit continues to actively investigate Rhonda's disappearance in the hopes of bringing the person (s) responsible for her disappearance before the courts.
