September 8th 2007

Bonnie was last seen in Vanderhoof on the afternoon of 8 September 2007 by her cousin Joanne. Joseph was seen hitchhiking from Vanderhoof to Prince George, where she had a court date the next day. She was nearing the end of a series of court dates to get her children back from the government. She was close to getting her children back and never missed a single court date until 9 September. She was reported missing in December 2007 by her aunt Rose Joseph. Police say she led a high-risk lifestyle and was known to hitchhike alone between Fort St. James, Vanderhoof and Prince George.

Her family considers her disappearance to be out of character. According to her cousin Vanessa Joseph, before Bonnie was reported missing and after she was last seen, her wallet and ID were found near a lake with an un-cashed cheque still in it. It was turned in to the RCMP, who reported this discovery to Bonnie Joseph’s sister Sharon a year later.


Bonnie was 5’4 and 120 pounds at the time of her disappearance. She has brown hair and eyes. She wears her hair short. She has a tattoo of an “X” and dots across her knuckles on her left hand. She has blotches on her face and an impetigo infection on her face and head. She was also known as Bonnie M. Joseph and was part of the Yekooche First Nation.
