This was the last time he was seen. He has not been heard from by friends or family since that date. His bank account remains untouched.

Taken from a news article written by the CBC on June 1, 2012 "Matheson's family is hoping someone will come forward with information to crack the cold case. Sarah MacDonald, Matheson's mother, said it would give the family closure. 'My biggest thing is to just find his body,' MacDonald said."

An American film maker, Ron Lamothe, raised money through a Kickstarter campaign to produce a documentary on Kenley's disappearance in hopes to help solve this case. The documentary is called Missing Kenley and as of this writing, the documentary is listed as "in production".
