  • Details of Disappearance
    Runningbird was last seen on March 26, 1995 on a hunting trip with her common­law husband and her sister­in­law at Swan Lake, Alta. She brought along her 18-month­old son. The 25­year­old mom of three reportedly set out on her own when the group's truck got stuck in mud. Runingbird’s common­law husband told police that Runningbird put on his size 10 shoes over her size 8 shoes before trying to walk to find help. Eventually, he and his sister also went for help. They found help, but Runningbird was never seen again.

    She was extremely ill, she had a colostomy bag following a brutal beating the week before and was scheduled for surgery shortly afterward. No one has been charged in Runningbird's assault. Despite extensive searches, she was never found.

    She is Blackfoot and from SikSika First Nation.
