Family Still Looks For Answers In Niram Shouldice's Death

Bruce Peninsula | by Claire McCormack  

Please Bring Me Home founder Nick Oldrieve hopes to find out why Shouldice died.

The family of Niram Shouldice of Northern Bruce Peninsula is looking for help in finding answers about his disappearance and death.

Nick Oldrieve, founder of the website is planning to help the family find some answers through his anonymous tip website.

Oldrieve is also looking to solve the 33 year old case of 22 year old Lisa Maas who went missing in 1988 from a Woodford area party.

Oldrieve is not a police officer, but a civilian with a goal of finding people who have gone missing from Grey Bruce over the years.

In the case of Niram Shouldice, Oldrieve says parts of his disappearance in March of 2017 and his death don't seem to make sense to Shouldice's family.  

Shouldice's remains were found in June 2017, scattered throughout a wooded area along Lakewood Country Lane in Northern Bruce Peninsula.

What Oldrieve says is most confusing is his boots, coats, hat, mitts, wallet and phone have never been found, "It doesn't seem plausible to me and the family that he went there with no boots, no coat and without his wallet and phone and hat and mitts."

"It's very different form what we've done before," says Oldrieve whose mission statement is to bring people home and while Shouldice was found, Oldrieve says there are few answers about what happened to him and why.

Oldrieve relates what Shouldice's father told him, "If you lose a child in a car accident it's horrific, it's an awful thing to go through and you have an answer. You know what happened, you know how it happened, they're gone and it doesn't bring them back but it gives you an answer, whereas this, you know that Niram is no longer with us but you don't know why and you don't know what happened."

Oldrieve says anyone with information should really contact the OPP detachment in Wiarton. If that's not an option, go to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or online at

Oldrieve says if a person is uncomfortable with that, they can can submit a secure web tip at or by mail at PO Box 74 Owen Sound, Ont. N4K 5P1

Oldrieve and his team were also instrumental in finding Terry Schope of Owen Sound who went missing in June of 2018 and was found deceased the following month.

Oldrieve also helped find 20 year old Nolan Panchyshyn of Saugeen Shores who disappeared in December 2017. His remains were found in March, 2018 at a property in the Dornoch area. 22-year-old David Beattie is charged with second degree murder in the case, as is 46 year old Dwayne Hammond. Both accused men are Chatsworth residents.  

Meanwhile, Oldrieve and his team are planning on starting two new cases, one to locate Shawn and Leslie Jones who went missing from Cape Croker in the early 1990's.

He also plans to look for answers in the disappearance of Kristina Rhodes of Hanover who went missing roughly 27 years ago.

Oldrieve says his current search for Lisa Maas is changing course. He feels they've been able to disprove a number of locations on an Annan property they searched in-depth over the summer, and he notes the OPP are getting more deeply involved in the case again.


"We've been able to provide them with some information and we're happy about it and the OPP seem to be happy about it, and we're just going to let them take that where they think they can take it."

Niram Shouldice's family has a facebook page that accepts tips as well.
