(LAMBTON, ON) - Karen Ann CAUGHLIN was last seen alive on the night of Friday, March 15, 1974. Undaunted, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) continue to actively seek a resolution for precisely 45 years.

Karen CAUGHLIN was a popular teenager in her hometown of Sarnia. After attending social events with friends on a Friday night, the 14-year-old's lifeless body was discovered the next morning -- some 22-kilometres away from the last place she was seen alive. Karen was left near the side of the then-6th Sideroad or Freer Road, now known as Plowing Match Road, between Churchill Line and Lasalle Line in Lambton County.

In 2017, police revealed science-based information that Karen's injuries were consistent with that of being hit by a motor vehicle. Karen was then moved from the location where she sustained the fatal injuries to where her body was ultimately discovered.

Anyone with new information on the Karen CAUGHLIN case may call Lambton County OPP at 1-519-882-1011. If a caller prefers to remain anonymous, they can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or submit information online at https://www.tipsubmit.com/.
