Tina & Bethany Sinclair: Missing Since 2001

Mother and Daughter have been missing for over 5 years from West Chesterfield, NH. They were last seen on Feb. 3, 2001. They were living in the home of Tina’s boyfriend, Eugene Van Bowman, at the time. According to Mr. Bowman, he and Tina had a fight late that night and he left. When he returned both Tina and Bethany were gone.

Last known movements of Tina & Bethany:
Feb. 3, 2001 Tina Sinclair picked up her daughter, Bethany from the Movie Theater and brought her home. That was around 11:30 PM. Bethany spoke with her boyfriend on the phone just before midnight. She excused herself from the phone conversation saying she had to finish washing her clothes. That was the last known communication with Tina or Bethany Sinclair.

Tina's car, cat, and both women's possessions were found still at the home. Eugene Van Bowman is considered a person of interest in this case.
