    Tina and her daughter, Bethany 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. Tina and Bethany have never been heard from again. They were not reported missing until February 10, six days after their disappearance.

    The Sinclairs have not contacted any of their loved ones. There has been no activity on Tina's bank account, cellular phone, or credit cards since her disappearance. There has also been no activity on either Tina's or 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.

    Divers search near dam in Sinclair investigation
    Mother, daughter went missing in 2001

    Updated: 1:40 AM EDT Jun 18, 2014

    [​IMG]

    HINSDALE, N.H. —
    Police divers were searching an area near the Vernon Dam in Hinsdale on Tuesday as part of the ongoing investigation into the 2001 disappearance of Tina and Bethany Sinclair.


    The Attorney General's Office said state police and Fish and Game crews planned to search the area Tuesday and Wednesday. Officials said there was no new information that prompted the search, but divers now have new techniques, training and resources that allow them to search new areas.

    “This is an area we have always wanted to search. This is an area that we have always been interested in,” Assistant Attorney General Ben Agati said. “Not only the people who interacted with them, but the community wants to know what happened.”

    Divers searched both sides of the Vernon Dam and focused on a half-mile area. Police have searched for the two for years, but now they have side-scan sonar and sector sonar to make things easier.

    The water is more than 50 feet deep, but the visibility is only 4 feet.

    Despite all that, searchers were still able to go farther with the search than they ever have.

    “Today, we had scuba teams out that were beyond the barriers and they could touch the side of the dam,” Agati said. “That’s how close they were able to get, and new spots that were not able to get to before.”

    Bethany Sinclair and her mother, Tina Sinclair, were last seen together in Chesterfield during the weekend of Feb. 3-4, 2001. Tina Sinclair last went to her job and Bethany Sinclair last attended school on Feb. 2, 2001. Tina Sinclair was 36 years old at the time, and Bethany Sinclair was 15.

    Before that weekend, Tina and Bethany Sinclair lived in West Chesterfield at the home of Tina Sinclair’s boyfriend, Eugene Van Bowman, at 182 Mountain Road.

    Photos: Massachusetts unsolved mysteries

    Tina Sinclair of Chesterfield was 34 when she disappeared Feb. 3, 2001; her daughter, Bethany, was 15. Authorities searched the home of Tina Sinclair's boyfriend, where she was last seen. Eugene Bowman told police he left the house one night after arguing with Sinclair. When returned, mother and daughter were gone.

    No arrests have been made in connection with their disappearance.

    The attorney general's office says the searches conducted on land and in the area of Vernon Dam aren't because of any new leads. New techniques have made it possible to search areas not previously accessible.

    Age Progressed

    Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance

    Missing Since: February 4, 2001 from Chesterfield, New Hampshire

    Classification: Endangered Missing

    Date Of Birth: October 15, 1985

    Age: 15 years old

    Height and Weight: 5'2, 120 pounds (some agencies may list her height and weight as 5'7 and 135 pounds).

    Distinguishing Characteristics: Brown hair, brown eyes. Bethany has a U-shaped scar on her forehead. She wears eyeglasses.

    Details of Disappearance

    Bethany and her mother, Tina 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 may have been wearing a crucifix pendant necklace at the time of her disappearance. She 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 vanised), 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.
