  • Details of Disappearance
    Ms. Dene was reported missing to the EPS by a family member on November 8, 2013. The last time anyone saw Shelly, a band member of Alberta’s Fort McKay First Nation with family ties and a stronger connection to the Mikisew Cree Nation, was mid-July 2013 in Edmonton, Alta. Shelly’s grandmother asked her to watch her home because she was going on vacation. But when the elder returned, there was no sign of Shelly.

    She has been out of family contact since approximately August of 2013. Shelly’s cell phone was disconnected at that time.

    Family is concerned for her welfare as it is unusual for her to be out of contact for this length of time. At the time of her disappearance she was living at a residence in the area of 114 Street and 102 Avenue.

    She was mother to a son, and after dropping out of school at a young age, she finished Grade 12 in 2010. Before Shelly moved to Edmonton, she was living in Kelowna, B.C. She grew up in Fort McMurray, Fort McKay and Vernon, B.C.

    Edmonton police say there’s no indication of foul play.
