On the day that Aielah disappeared, Feb. 2, 2006, she left home with her brother and sister for a day at the mall.
Indigenous COLD CASE

Prince George, British Columbia - Aielah Saric-Auger was born on December 30, 1991 in Edmonton, Alberta. A member of the Lheidli T'enneh First Nation, she was the youngest of six children.

Aielah didn't have an easy life growing up. When she was young, she and her mother, Audrey, were driving when their car slid on black ice. The pair ended up in the ditch and Aielah is said to have temporarily lost consciousness.

Then, in 2000, the family learnt that she was being abused by a relative who had come to stay with them. Despite Audrey removing the children from the situation, they found themselves living in various motels until CPS caught up with them and separated the children, with Aielah in particular being sent to live with her paternal grandparents.

In 2004, Audrey made the decision to relocate the family to Prince George, British Columbia, where her older brother resided. While she went to find a place to live, the children went to live in Enoch, a Cree Nation reserve located approximately 35km west of Edmonton. Once in Prince George, the family lived in a rented trailer just off Highway 16, on the western edge of the city.

On the day that Aielah disappeared, Feb. 2, 2006, she left home with her brother and sister for a day at the mall.

She has been gone just over a week from her home, and her family has plastered "Missing" posters all over the downtown Prince George area, where she was last seen. But Aielah Saric-Auger is not coming home.

About a week after she went missing, on February 10, a motorist travelling east to Prince George on Highway 16 contacted police after seeing something in the ditch, near the Tabor Mountain ski resort. When officers arrived on location, they discovered the nude body of a deceased female.

According to the website firstnationsdrum.com, her "small body was found and identifiable, but so much of it was missing that the family had to have a closed casket funeral."

Through the necklace found around her neck, her mother was able to positively ID the body as Aielah. The public were notified of the identification on February 15, 2006.

The highway on which Aielah's body was found is known as the Highway of Tears. It's a 725km stretch of desolate road between Prince George and Prince Rupert and has been the site of many murders and disappearances, starting in the late 1960s and continuing to this day.

The majority of the cases involve Indigenous women and girls, and many remain unsolved.

Those with information regarding the murder of Aielah Saric-Auger are asked to contact the Prince George detachment of the RCMP at 250-561-3300. Tips can also be submitted anonymously via British Columbia Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Just a few murders in RCMP files for Thompson, MB...Jacob Stokman, 58, who was killed July 27, 2008 in a Cree Road trailer, and Chantel Rikhiem, who was slain on Feb. 2, 2005. Plz look it up.

Many unsolved here in BC. A lot of these crimes happened a long time ago... Most of the victims don't get found, some get found but not right away and evidence is completely lost. Sad!

- Tristan W. (Vancouver, B.C.)

What is really important for these families is to know that as Canadians, is that we remember these murdered or missing people and keep our eyes and ears open.

- Sarah M. (Kamloops, B.C.)

What really happend to Franklin Shoofey, shot and killed outside his Montreal law office on Cherrier St?

- Janvier S. (Montreal, QC)

I am following up on a possible homicide investigation dating back to June 15, 2005. The body of Angus McLeod Stirling was found in a residence at 5456 Vedder Road. I lost touch with the conclusion of this incident. I was a previous neighbour when I lived in Chilliwack.

In 1982 a man claiming to be a professional race car driver talked his way into NASCAR's Winston 500 and then disappeared, leaving a trail of bounced checks and confused victims in his wake. This is the story of L. W. Wright: NASCAR's Mystery Driver. How about a non-violent sports mystery?

- Bacary T. (Windsor, ON)

Some unsolved crimes here in Thompson still have an investigation going on. We know that sometimes these investigations might take too long but the pressure must go on for justice!

- Kerrick A. (Thompson, MB)

Hi. Lots of unsolved cases here in Winnipeg that I don't see on this site. Maybe we all should come out and speak up, starting with ME! :)

The bizarre case of Helen Doe, an unidentified car crash victim from 1991. Who is Helen Doe and is she part of the epidemic of Missing and Murdered Indigenous women?

Hi there, I've grown up and lived in south okanagan for many years, I also remember in the North okanagan a young man associated with a VW car ,maybe selling it? Went missing, north of Vernon. The okanagan is a nice place but it attracts many criminal types.

- Sharon J. (South Okanagan, B.C.)

My kids father has gone missing for over a year. We have two children together. It isn't like him to not show up for the kids. His car was found abandoned. His car on and door open in Cheekeye. The police did not search for him then but took his car cause the keys were in it anx it was still running with him no where in sight. His name is Daniel Lee Reoch and he would be 30 now and turning 31 this year in March. He was declared missing January 7th I believe. I just want to put his story out there in hopes we can find some answers. SAR and RCMP and also family friends and the community did a ground search but it snowed so hard.

- Key-le-la H. (Squamish, B.C.)

Another year comes and tina Fontaine case is still unsolved. Senseless murders and violence against indigenous women :(

- Hillary W. (Winnipeg, MB)

Evelyn Cook case will forever haunt Alberta. Someone out there knows something...it's never too late to come forward!

So sad that still there is no updates on Mary Hammond!! Missing since 80s from Brantford, Ont.

- Patrick M. (Milton, ON)

Any information about Angie Hartmann? Angela a high school student has been missing since 1983 from Ottawa. There seems to be very little information available in this case. All I could find is an Ottawa Sun article from 2003, basically the only contact anyone has had with someone involved with Angela is a boyfriend she had briefly in early 1983 in Germany, who gave what information he had to the Doe Network.

- Nicole H. (Ottawa, ON)

It is unbelievable how many unsolved murders in Canada, especially in northern BC. May all R.I.P. They will never be forgotten.

- Lisa V. (Prince Rupert, B.C.)

I hope many of these cases will be solved. Families want justice or closure.

- Anna V. (Vancouver, B.C.)

My nephew has been missing for 12 years now but we have never given up. We are hoping and hoping!!

- Ernest H. (Winnipeg, MB)

I sometimes think that some unsolved cases are not really unsolved. They have been solved but no enough evidence to convict the perpetrator.

- Julie N. (Toronto, ON)

We lost our lovely daughter. Disappeared mysteriously 14 years ago in Calgary. She was 11 years old. This case is still unsolved today. Please keep the word out. We hope that she is somewhere... Alive!
