CALGARY — Police investigating the alleged murder of a Calgary woman who was last seen more than five years ago are searching east of the city for evidence this weekend.
Calgary police said in a news release that its members, along with the RCMP and the Calgary Search and Rescue Association, will search Siksika Nation lands for potential evidence of the disappearance of Tammie Doreen Howard on Saturday.
Howard, who was 49 when she disappeared, was last heard from on December 24, 2016 and was reported missing by her family four months later.
Police last month announced they believe his disappearance was a homicide after initially believing it to be a missing person case, and they asked the public for information about a colored Jeep Wrangler clear that they believed to be connected to Howard’s death.
They say that since that plea, they now believe evidence related to Howard’s death may be on Siksika Nation land.
Police thanked the Siksika Nation in the press release for allowing them to conduct the search.
This report from The Canadian Press was first published on August 6, 2022.
