About Brianne

Brianne Wolgram

One of the last known photos of Brianne (hair straightened).

Brianne Ruth Wolgram was a soft-spoken, sweet, and attractive young woman.

She was just 19 years old at the time of her disappearance.

Many people viewed her as shy or timid.  Those who were lucky enough to get to know her would say she was outgoing, fun, and absolutely hilarious.

She was employed at McDonald’s restaurant and The Ol’ Frontier’s Supersave gas station, both located on the Trans Canada Highway in Revelstoke, BC.

Brianne resided with her parents, Sheryl and Cliff.  She has two older brothers, Troy and Todd, who were not living at home during the time of Brianne’s disappearance.

Like many young women, Brianne spent most of her time working and hanging out with her close group of friends.  Her schooling, two jobs, and older brothers led her to make a variety of different friends and acquaintances throughout Revelstoke.

Brianne led an active lifestyle; playing sports throughout high school and working-out at the gym.  She occasionally consumed alcohol at parties but did not smoke cigarettes or “do drugs”.

She had dreams of going to college, travelling, getting married, and having children.  Though she was not romantically linked to any particular boy, Brianne did have “crushes”.

Not long before she disappeared, Brianne had purchased a black Acura Integra with gold-coloured rims that was her pride and joy.  It was in pristine condition and she made sure to take good care of it.  That last summer was filled with “Slurpees”, rocky beaches, and the loud blaring of Beastie Boys from her new car.

The summer of 1998 came to a tragic end when our dear friend was taken from us on September 5.  Brianne disappeared that evening without a trace.   Her family and friends have been deeply missing her for a very long time and are no longer willing to sit around and wait.

We are coming for you, Brianne.  We love you and will not give-up.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
– Margaret Mead

    Was the 200 in cash hers? Why 200.00? Very few people have an exact amount like that on them?

      Yes, the cash was hers. She cashed her pay cheque that day.

    After watching the Owen Rooney Story on 60 Minutes, I researched it leading me to Brianne’s story. I must admit that I feel for the family and friends of Brianne, and I was wondering if there were any updates, or is the case closed with the Police? I will pray for answers for you all. God Bless You.
