For 365 days, RCMP investigators have been following up on leads, creating timelines, conducting interviews and actively searching for Mekayla Bali. We've received over 200 tips from the public.
To the community of Yorkton we ask: What were you doing one year ago today?
Did you meet friends for coffee at Tim Hortons? Were you driving on Gladstone Avenue North that morning, in the common area at Sacred Heart High School or on Broadway Street East near the TD Bank?
Did you notice a young female – with a distinct mint or teal coloured infinity scarf and blonde wavy hair worn down?
Mekayla purchased a small beverage from Tim Hortons, sat in a booth and may have been talking on her cell phone. She may have been listening to something and had white earbuds in her ears. She was wearing jeans and a ¾ length burgundy or purple coat.
Did you have lunch at the Trail Stop Restaurant at the bus depot and see her order a poutine?
These are some of the last things we know Mekayla Bali did before she went missing on April 12, 2016.
We're asking you to please – think back.
There are people who know something about Mekayla's disappearance – whether they saw her or overheard all or part of a conversation she was having that day.
Any information you have – if you saw Mekayla April 12, 2016, if you overheard her say anything that day or in the days leading up to her disappearance – please share these details with us. If you've been hesitant, or think we may already have the information, call us anyway. Don't assume we know.
If you want to share information, but are scared or unsure, or if you don't want us to know who you are, call, text or submit a tip online to Saskatchewan Crime Stoppers (1-800-222-8477). The only way someone will find out that you called Crime Stoppers is if you tell them.
