Thirteen years ago, Abigail Andrews vanished without a trace from Fort St. John, British Columbia. The details of her disappearance prove how uncharacteristic it was for her to not return home. It's clear that there was foul play involved, but authorities have been tight-lipped and the case seemingly gets colder by the year. What happened to Abigail and when will justice finally be served?


It's been nineteen years since 35-year-old Elaine Frieda Alook was reported to be last seen just outside of Fort McMurray, Alberta. Her last known whereabouts immediately made her disappearance extremely suspicious to her friends and family. Elaine's image would begin an online movement between artists, activists and politicians alike. Bringing attention to a haunting history of a nation's missing and murdered indigenous women, a collective trauma still palpable throughout generations and a list of questions waiting to be answered.


On February 22, 2016 Caitlin Potts would be seen for the last time on a glimpse of security footage. It was as if the 27-year-old walked into the Orchard Park Mall in Enderby, British Columbia and vanished into thin air. But, of course, Caitlin left the mall somehow that day. Seven years later, authorities seem no closer to figuring out what happened to Caitlin than they did that day. Is Caitlin's disappearance connected to other cases involving missing women in the Okanagan area, or is the person who hurt Caitlin much closer to home?
