Volunteers with the Bear Clan Patrol and family members were out in Winnipeg’s West Broadway neighbourhood on Wednesday afternoon, searching for any tips about a woman who went missing early last year.
Ashlee Shingoose, 31, was last seen on March 11, 2022, around Henry Avenue, between Main and Martha streets, according to a post by the Southern Chiefs Organization.
Her father, Albert Shingoose, spoke briefly to CBC News to say his whole family is concerned for her wellbeing.
“My wife is worried about her daughter and also me, her sisters. They want to know where their sister is. My wife wants to know where Ashlee is. We’d like to find her,” Albert said.
“Please, anyone, call us. Let us know where she is.”
Kevin Walker, the interim director of Bear Clan, says her disappearance is a mystery.
“It’s becoming a concern that she hasn’t contacted anybody in a long time. So we’re going to be out today with the family and hopefully that we can drum up some leads with getting the posters up and having it on our social media platforms,” he told CBC News.
Bear Clan Patrol volunteers are continuing to search on Wednesday evening to search for another woman — Latanya Tait.
Thunder Bay Police Service said in an update on Wednesday that the 25-year-old from Sachigo Lake, an Oji-Cree First Nation, had been seen in Winnipeg on the evening of Jan. 16.
Previously, Tait was last seen on Jan. 1 in Thunder Bay. Her family said they haven’t heard from Tait since before Christmas.
