Tina and her daughter,Bethany Sinclair,resided with Tina's boyfriend, Eugene Van Bowman,on Mountain Road in Chesterfield,New Hampshire..


Bowman,who goes by his middle name Van,told authorities that he and Tina had an argument on February 4, 2001..


He claimed that he left the house and returned later in the day..Bowman said that Tina and Bethany were not at home when he returned..


Bowman stated that all of their clothes were missing,but the remainder of their personal belongings,including Tina's fifteen-year-old cat and her vehicle, were still at the residence..


Bethany and Tina have never been heard from again..


They were not reported missing until February 10,six days after their disappearance..


An unidentified woman called Keene High School on February 5,the day after the Sinclairs disappeared,to report Bethany was ill and would not be attending classes..


Authorities are uncertain of the caller's identity...


Tina and Bowman's relationship was troubled at the time..


Tina's sister said that she was concerned for Bethany's safety because Bowman has a record as a sex offender (he served two years for molesting a relative in the 1990s after Tina and Bethany vanished),and wanted Bethany to live with her in Connecticut..


She and Tina had an argument in October 2000 regarding the situation and had not spoken since that time..


According to her sister,Tina said that she would get herself out of the relationship with Bowman..


Tina's sister said that she believed Tina was preparing to leave Bowman,but she doesn't think Tina left of her own accord with Bethany in February 2001..


The Sinclairs have not contacted any of their loved ones..


There has not been any activity on Tina's bank account,cellular phone,or credit cards since her disappearance...


There has also been no activity on Tina's and Bethany's Social Security numbers...


Bowman's home bordered the Connecticut River,but an extensive search of the area produced no clues as to Tina and Bethany's whereabouts..


Authorities suspect that foul play was involved in their cases..


There have been no arrests related to the Sinclairs' disappearances..


Bowman has reportedly refused to cooperate with investigators..


He has not been named as a suspect but is being called a "person of interest."


Tina and Bethany's cases remain unsolved.

A memorial for Tina and Bethany Sinclair, the mother and daughter who went missing eight years ago today, is seen Monday on Mountain Road in West Chesterfield...

Eight years on, the sudden disappearance of Tina and Bethany Sinclair remains a mystery.


CASE OF MISSING MOTHER, DAUGHTER IS STILL COLD


By PHILLIP BANTZ

Sentinel Staff


Published: Tuesday, February 03, 2009


The world is a different place today than it was when a West Chesterfield mother and daughter disappeared eight years ago...


New wars,presidents and technologies mark the passing of time..

.

Each tick of the clock slowly covers the remaining tracks of Tina and Bethany Sinclair like footprints disappearing in the snow...


No bodies. No activity on bank accounts..The house they lived in off Mountain Road has been demolished...


The only remaining traces of the Sinclairs are haunting photographs, forgotten belongings,a slew of questions and a lingering sadness among those they left behind...


Family members of Tina Sinclair,who was 34 when she disappeared,and Bethany Sinclair,who was 15,remain vigilant in their quest for answers and some sort of closure to a painful mystery that has dragged on far too long...


Tina Sinclair worked at the Keene Beauty Academy and as a visiting nurse for a quadriplegic man...


She picked up her daughter,a Keene High School student,from a local movie theater and drove her home the night of Feb. 3, 2001..


They were never seen again..


“I still look at their pictures and talk to them..


I’m not crazy, but you do that.I miss them terribly and I still wish they would come home,” said Tina Sinclair’s mother,Mary E. Lewis..


“Just the idea of them being gone for eight years ...


I get discouraged sometimes, but then I think,‘Maybe we’ll find them.’


You just have to keep going.”


Searchers with the police,private organizations and the Sinclair family have combed forests and explored the Connecticut River with divers and sonar equipment,but remain empty-handed...


One private search party brought in cadaver-sniffing dogs in the fall of 2007...


They trekked over hundreds of square miles in Chesterfield for seven days, eventually locating a spot where their dogs detected the scent of human remains...


“We ended up getting an excavator and going out and digging in the woods off Route 9 in the Old Chesterfield Road area,” N.H. State Police Sgt. Russell B. Lamson said..


“We must have cut four or five cords of wood just to get the excavator back there.We were there all day, but we didn’t discover any evidence.”


Police investigators have entered the Sinclairs’ dental records and other identifying information into a national database that is used to match unidentified remains with missing persons,Lamson said..


“A few unidentified remains have popped up on the radar..


Any time a police agency finds something they call us because they know we’re looking..


It happened a couple times last year. Nothing matched,” he said...


“We’re also still getting tips and we always follow up on those..


It’s just with each year the number of tips we get decreases.”


The desperate Sinclair family consulted a California psychic a few years ago who claimed to have seen a pair of bodies in a cave on the side of a mountain in Chesterfield..


The vision never panned out...


They also hired award-winning private investigator Gil Alba, who worked for 27 years as a New York City police detective...


“We’re still active on the case,” Alba said. “Every time we get a lead we follow it up...


I went to Chesterfield in April and did some more interviews...


We’re also looking for evidence: body parts,clothing,maybe a murder weapon..Anything we can find.”


Alba is also looking at Eugene V. Bowman Jr. Bowman was dating and living with Tina Sinclair before she went missing..


Police have called him a person of interest in the case...


“The problem with a case like this is joining the evidence together with the person of interest,” Alba said. “You have to keep working on them and that’s what we’re doing.”


Bowman is still living in New Hampshire,according to Alba..


He said he has not spoken with Bowman...


Attempts to reach Bowman for comment were unsuccessful...


Police searched Bowman’s residence a few months after the Sinclairs disappeared, but what they seized and what they were looking for may never be made public because the state Attorney General’s Office refuses to release the warrants...


The Keene Sentinel won an argument in the city’s District Court to view warrants that detailed the search,but the state’s Supreme Court reversed the decision..The Court ruled that the warrants should stay sealed while police are working the case..


Tina Sinclair’s sister,Sharon Garry,stated in an e-mail that she and her family remain disturbed by the disappearances and are frustrated by the lack of information..


“The anger,hatred,confusion and nightmares have shredded through me and made me into a person I don’t even recognize anymore,” Garry wrote. “The holidays, birthdays and family gatherings were like a bad dream because Tina and Bethany weren’t there.”


A memorial for the Sinclairs will be replaced at a bend in the Connecticut River off Route 9 in West Chesterfield to mark the grim anniversary,Garry said..


The first two memorials,a cross and a photograph of the Sinclairs mounted on a plaque,were stolen..


Garry urged others to visit the memorial and light a candle in memory of her sister and niece.

 

She said she will never stop searching for them...
