Missing and Murdered Aboriginal Women and Girls in Alberta

From CBC:

Leduc RCMP are asking the public for assistance in the case of a Fort McMurray woman who went missing a year ago.

Amber Alyssa Tuccaro, who would be 21 years old now, was reported missing by her mother on Aug. 18, 2010, when she failed to return to the hotel in Nisku where she and her two-year-old son and a girl friend were staying.

The Leduc RCMP have been investigating her disappearance for almost a year.

The Stolen Sister’s Awareness organization and the Tuccaro family will host the Amber Alyssa Tuccaro Awareness Walk this Saturday at the Sacred Heart of the First People’s Church basement.

The awareness walk will begin at 3 p.m. and a vigil will follow at around 4 p.m.

As well, I recently found this site the contains a huge list of missing and murdered Aboriginal women in Alberta – it isn’t entirely up to date, but do read through it.
