Sinclair Robertson, of Grimsby, officially listed as among the missing crew of the motor ship John Medell, which is believed to have floundered on its maiden voyage from England to Canada recently, was a lad who was known locally as "Ted" Robertson, having disappeared from here about a year and a half ago. The boy was a native of the Orkney Islands. Three years ago, when he was 15 years of age, he was brought to Canada by his aunt, Mrs. James Gunn, a former Grimsby resident. For about 18 months he worked on the Grigg farm in North Grimsby township. He left without mentioning that he was leaving and is still listed as "missing" in police records. Mr. Grigg stated that no word of the boy was received from the time he disappeared until his name appeared in the list of those believed lost at sea. While he was known locally as Ted Robertson, Mr. Grigg said his correct name was Sinclair Edward Robertson. The boy apparently had a love for the sea and ships as Mr. Grigg states he was always talking about boats.
