British Columbia’s Cariboo Gold Rush trail was a bustling, wild and often violent place in the 1800s.

Notes to Editor:
CORINE CAREY (headshot here)
Corine (pronounced “kor-een”) had a gift for communicating with ghosts since she was three years old, but years of being subjected to doctor’s consultations requested by her parents who were concerned about her mental state, caused her to keep quiet. But, the visitors never stopped coming… no matter how hard she tried to ignore them. Eventually Corine was left with no choice but to accept that, like it or not, she had a gift. Since accepting that truth, Corine has dedicated her life to connecting with spirits, and has traveled the globe solving paranormal mysteries and quieting voices from beyond the grave. Corine has been to some of the most haunted locations in the world.
LEANNE SALLENBACK (headshot here)
Like her sister Corine, LEANNE SALLENBACK has been able to communicate with ghosts since she was a young girl. Unlike her sister, she never doubted her abilities for a second. As soon as she witnessed her first spirit, she knew it was legit. She’s been seeking out haunted locations ever since. The two sisters grew up ghost hunting together, playing “spot the spirit” as children, and have witnessed (and recorded) some truly amazing paranormal phenomena. Leanne is a fierce believer who tirelessly works to get to the bottom of what these spirits are trying to tell her.
KELLY IRELAND (headshot here)
From the age of two, KELLY IRELAND had an innate ability to connect with spirits from beyond the grave. Her first such memory is of her dog coming to visit her, long after he had been put down. Unfortunately, this ability was squashed rather than nurtured by her overprotective parents, and she soon learned to keep quiet about her visions. Once she met Leanne and Corine, Kelly learned to embrace this gift, rather than run from it. Since then, she’s joined them on countless ghost hunting missions and loved every minute of it!
