Historical missing person case from Bonnyville highlighted on Canada’s Missing website

The Bonnyville RCMP currently has an open investigation into the disappearance of Margaret Mildred Batoche who has been missing since May 26, 1967.

This historical missing person case was chosen to be highlighted on the Canada’s Missing website associated to Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women & Girls initiative.

The start of the campaign in October was chosen to coincide with the Sisters in Spirit Vigil held by the Native Women’s Association of Canada each October 4, when the lives of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls is honoured.

For a period of 11 weeks, Canada’s Missing is highlighting 11 cases.

Sgt. Sarah Parke is the Detachment Commdar for the Bonnyville RCMP.

“This initiative is an opportunity for communities across the country to be involved by sharing information that may generate tips for investigating officers,” Sgt. Parke said. “With the public’s help we hope to bring these missing women and girls home, and seek justice and closure for families.”
