Despite a continued police investigation into the disappearance of Jenaya Mary Wapemoose, the 22-year-old woman has still not been located.
Wapemoose is originally from Cowessess First Nation, but has been living in Regina since she was 10 years old. She was last seen on the 1800 block of Ottawa Street on March 10, and no one has heard from her through her regular social media channels since April 7, according to the family.
In a press release issued Tuesday, the Regina Police Service (RPS) said it has conducted an “extensive investigation” into Wapemoose’s disappearance. Police said there is still a concern for her welfare, and are asking anyone with information to come forward.
On May 20, community members and Wapemoose’s own family held a search in the city and put up posters of her picture.
In an interview with the Leader-Post, Jenaya’s sister Jackie Wapemoose described her as artistic, loving and “the best person out there.”
“She’s cared for so much. Everybody’s getting together just for her and I want her to come home,” she said.
Jenaya is described as female, Indigenous, five feet four inches tall, weighing approximately 130 pounds with a thin build, shoulder-length light brown, wavy hair and brown eyes. Noticeable markings include a tattoo of stars on her neck.
Anyone with information on her whereabouts can contact the RPS at 306-777-6500 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
