On the weekend of September 11th, Kenley Matheson had travelled to Corkum's Island in Lunenburg County with some friends.
He returned to Acadia, attended his classes for the week, and then attended a party on campus on September 19th. He was seen on September 20th at Crowell Tower by his sister and others. His residence was located on the ninth floor.
On September 21st, according to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, he had been to the Royal Bank in Wolfville and was last seen walking down Main Street near the Acadia Arena.
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".
UPDATE - 13 October 2021: The World Premiere of Missing Kenley is October 22 and 23, 2021 at Neptune Theatre Scotiabank Stage in Halifax. It will air in Wolfville on October 29 and 30th at Acadia Cinema's Al Whittle Theatre.
