In September 1992, Kenley was a student at Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. During his first two weeks of university, he had travelled with some friends to Corkum’s Island in Lunenburg County for the weekend. He returned to Acadia and attended a party on campus on the weekend of September 18 and wasseen by his sister and others at Crowell Tower (Acadia University) on September 20.

He was last seen by a friend walking on Main Street in Wolfville on September 21 wearing blue jeans, a purple t-shirt, a red and black backpack and a ball cap. There has been no contact with family members or friends and there has been no activity on his bank account since.

“Not knowing what happened to my son has been devastating for our family and has made it extremely difficult to move forward,” says Sarah MacDonald, Kenley Matheson’s mother. “I believe someone out there knows something that may help piece together what happened. I’m urging anyone who remembers anything, regardless of how insignificant it may seem, to please come forward.”

In 2012, the case was added to the Nova Scotia Department of Justice’s Reward for Major Unsolved Crimes Program (https://novascotia.ca/just/Public_Safety/Rewards/case_detail.asp?cid=80).
