“Bring Ash home,” a group of Ashley Morin’s family and supporters shouted as they walked through North Battleford July 12 after walking from the Saskatoon Police Service.
About 50 people made the 138-kilometre, three-day trek aimed at raising awareness about Morin’s disappearance in the hopes someone with information will come forward.
Morin, who is from Ahtahkakoop Cree Nation, was 31 when she disappeared from North Battleford two years ago. Police say she was last seen at about 9:30 p.m. in North Battleford on July 10, 2018.
In 2019 the RCMP said they believe Morin is the victim of a homicide. They said they didn’t find any social media, mobile phone or bank account activity linked to Morin.
RCMP said they received information indicating Morin may have been travelling to Lloydminster or Edmonton, Alta. but this hasn’t been confirmed.
Saskatchewan RCMP haven’t stopped investigating Morin’s disappearance and the case remains open. Police released an image of a two-tone van (lighter on the top, darker on the bottom), that doesn’t appear to have any windows. They say the van was at the corner of 96 Street and 16 Avenue in North Battleford - one of the last places police say Morin was seen. They believe the van, or the people who may have been inside it, may have valuable information.
Family and friends have raised more than $20,000 for a reward for information that leads to finding Morin or that leads to someone’s arrest.
Morin’s sister Janine Morin said they would never give up looking for Morin.
“We need whoever is responsible for her disappearance to know this family is not giving up.”
Anyone with information about the disappearance of Ashley Morin is asked to contact their local RCMP detachment. Information can also be submitted anonymously through Saskatchewan CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
