Missing persons week is an opportunity for police and partner agencies to raise awareness about missing persons and investigations.
The theme of this year’s Missing Persons Week is “safety for all.” The Saskatchewan RCMP’s goal remains to prevent, intervene, and provide support in all missing persons cases.
Missing Persons Week will include scheduled events in Regina, Saskatoon, La Loche, Wadena, Prince Albert and Yorkton.
“It’s an unfortunate fact that there are families out there who are still waiting for their loved ones to come home,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Don Morgan said in a news release. “It’s important that we, as a province, continue the work being done to find missing persons and to address the reasons people go missing in the first place.”
There are 134 long-term missing persons in Saskatchewan, according to the Saskatchewan Association of Chiefs of Police.
It is important to remember that if you ever have to report someone missing, it is imperative that you provide any and all information pertaining to the situation to police. This will assist with their investigation.
