Story of Amber Tuccaro

Amber Alyssa Tuccaro, 20, was a mother to one son, Jacob, from Mikisew Cree First Nation.


She was last seen on Aug. 18, 2010, in Nisku, Alta. On Sept. 1, 2012, horseback riders found her remains in the same area. In 2012, the police released a recording of a phone conversation Amber had with an unidentified male, hoping it would help identify the man. A few women came forward claiming to know the man’s identity; they all identified the same man. RCMP say they’ve looked into him, but he is not a person of interest.


In 2017, the Tuccaro family increased the reward for information to $5,000 and started a Justice for Amber campaign on social media. In March 2014, Amber’s mother, Vivian Tuccaro, filed a complaint against the Leduc RCMP saying they downplayed her disappearance, including taking her off the missing persons list after one month, despite no one seeing her.
