A mother whose daughter went missing more than two years ago spoke to an early morning audience in Saskatoon at the 4th Annual Child Find fundraising breakfast.
Paula Bali, the mother Mekayla Bali, who went missing from Yorkton on April 12th 2016, says several tips have come in from the west coast including Vancouver of possible sightings but nothing ever came out of her three trips to that city. She says tips come in quite frequently.
“There’s always, always in Mekayla’s case tips coming in. I think in the last week, there have been two new tips again. So those are investigated and you know unfortunately we’ve never had one that was, you know, a certain lead.”
Paula wants to see a new mobile emergency response task force that would be made up of military personnel to assist the RCMP when a child goes missing.
Her family has put up more than 6-thousand posters across Canada and in the United States to bring awareness of the missing teen.
The family has offered a reward of $25-thousand for anyone who finds her. Mekayla was last seen in Yorkton at the STC bus depot at 1:45 on April 12th, 2016.
Right now in Saskatchewan, there are 126 long term missing persons cases.
