Story of Emily Osmond

Emily Osmond disappeared in 2007 when she was 78 years old. RCMP say she lived a reclusive lifestyle on a small acreage on the Kawacatoose First Nation, Saskatchewan.


She didn’t have much contact with family or friends. The last time they saw her was Aug. 29, 2007. A man who helped her chop wood last saw her on Sept. 9, 2007.


RCMP said her disappearance was unusual since her vehicle, personal belongings, medication and her dogs were still there.


RCMP said there was nothing to indicate foul play. She lived happily in a shack without running water or electricity. Extensive searches were conducted in a 25-kilometer radius around her property, with no luck.
