Story of Shannon Alexander

Shannon was born on March 29, 1991. She was a member of Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg Nation, Maniwaki, Quebec. Shannon disappeared with her friend, Maisy Odjick on September 6th, 2008.


The two were to have a sleepover at Shannon’s house after attending a dance. They never returned home. The following day their belongings were located, however they remain missing.


Police originally declared that the friends were considered runaways and the families believed that stalled the investigation. In 2017, police received new information about Shannon’s disappearance which led investigators to conduct a search of Kitigan Zibi reserve however no evidence was found.
