Saskatchewan Missing Persons

Police agencies in Saskatchewan have jurisdiction over Missing Persons cases. For several years, all police services have been working together to share information on historical cases, which includes missing persons and cases of found human remains.  This information is now being shared with the public in hopes of generating more tips to find missing persons.

Hundreds of people go missing every year, but most are returned safe and sound to their loved ones.  In some cases, however; missing persons do not return or contact their families and, consequently, the fear is that they have met with mishap or foul play.  This site features their profiles. One of the requirements for inclusion on this site is that the persons have been missing for more than six months. 

Long-term missing persons are men, women and children from all areas of the province.  Police continue looking for missing persons until the case is solved or until all investigational avenues have been exhausted.  We invite everyone to view the information on this site.

Child Find/Runaways – Thursday, May 8, 2014

This release is posted on behalf of the Provincial Partnership Committee on Missing Persons as part of Missing Persons Week in Saskatchewan.

Theme 4: Runaways
Focus: Runaways: Encouraging youth to re-think the impulsive urge to run.

Children and youth runaways are at serious risk of physical and sexual exploitation and often become involved in a life of crime as a means of supporting themselves. This risky behaviour can often be the cause of runaways going missing.

This year, the Provincial Partnership Committee on Missing Persons has created powerful videos and materials to help raise awareness about some of the ways people can go missing.

Drowning – Tuesday, May 6, 2014

This release is posted on behalf of the Provincial Partnership Committee on Missing Persons as part of Missing Persons Week in Saskatchewan.

Theme 2: Drowning Incidents
Focus: Minimizing the risk of drowning incidents in Saskatchewan.

Boating, hunting or other water related activities can lead to a person going missing.

This year, the Provincial Partnership Committee on Missing Persons has created powerful videos and materials to help raise awareness about some of the ways people can go missing. Review of the 118 missing persons reveals that approximately 22 are persons presumed to have drowned. They are those where a body has never been recovered. We have on average, 20 individuals in Saskatchewan that drown annually. It’s important to recognize the sad reality is that most of these cases are preventable.

This release is posted on behalf of the Provincial Partnership Committee on Missing Persons as part of Missing Persons Week in Saskatchewan.

Theme 1: Foul Play
Focus: Safety tips, awareness and education for people participating in risky activities to minimize risk of incidents of foul play.

As of April 1, 2014, there are 118 missing person’s cases in Saskatchewan. Some of these cases are a result of foul play. Missing persons week focuses on high risk activity and providing safety tips because these activities are occurring and it’s in everyone’s interest to take whatever steps are possible to mitigate or to lessen the chances that people do go missing.

This year, the Provincial Partnership Committee on Missing Persons has created powerful videos and materials to help raise awareness about some of the ways people can go missing and how to prevent or minimize the risk of going missing.
