Story of Angela Meyer

Angela Meyer, 22, loved to be hugged and loved to talk to people, but struggled with schizophrenia, said her family.


She was last seen in Yellowknife on Nov. 27, 2010. The Yellowknife RCMP is investigating the missing persons case, but her family wonders why it took a month for officers to conduct an air search. In 2015, a different officer took over Angela’s case.


In January 2018, the family spoke about Angela’s case at the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls inquiry in Yellowknife, saying the biggest issue in the north is not having enough supports for mental health.
