Members of the Saskatoon Police Service Victim’s Services Unit will be joining the family of Ashley Morin in support.

Ashley Morin was last seen one year ago on July 10, 2018, in North Battleford. Members of the SPS Victim’s Services Unit have been providing ongoing support to her family since that time.

“When it comes to the families of the missing, one community can support another," said Victim’s Services Manager Dorthea Swiftwolfe.

Wednesday, Saskatchewan RCMP said, based on the investigation to date, including numerous Crime Stoppers tips and witness statements, they believe Morin was the victim of a homicide.

Saskatchewan RCMP is releasing an image of a two-tone van (lighter on the top, darker on the bottom), which appears to have no windows. We hope that the public can help to identify the van or the occupant(s) of the van, as they may have valuable information that can help us find Ashley.

The van was on the corner of 96th Street and 16th Avenue in North Battleford on Tuesday, July 10, 2018, at approximately 9:30 p.m. CST. This was one of the locations Ashley was last seen.

Saskatchewan RCMP is focused on determining what happened to Ashley and where she is. To date, officers have found no mobile phone usage, no social media usage, and no bank account activity linked to Ashley throughout the year.

Anyone with information regarding Ashley’s whereabouts is asked to contact RCMP Major Crime Unit North at 306-975-5153, or Saskatchewan Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or www.saskcrimestoppers.com.
