Investigators continue to canvas the area, as residences and businesses in the downtown area surrounding 53 Street may have video footage from security cameras, “Nest” cams and vehicle dash cams. Residents are asked to review their footage between the hours of 3:00 p.m. and midnight, December 26, 2019 and provide police with any sightings.

The Yellowknife Ground Search and Rescue (YKGSAR) have been actively patrolling the downtown area, including back alleys and checking yards.  Please be aware these patrols may continue.

Additional to the YKGSAR patrols and RCMP canvasses, downtown residents are asked to report anything that may appear unusual in their backyards and outbuildings.

Sladjana has been known to visit Calgary and Edmonton in the past.  The RCMP Yellowknife Detachment is working with partner agencies in Alberta. The media release was shared with Alberta, should Sladjana be making her way from Yellowknife to Alberta.

The investigators of the Yellowknife RCMP General Investigative Section continue to work on this priority investigation.  They have been supported by the NT RCMP Police Dog Services, Yellowknife RCMP and resources from other units as required.   At this time, despite the dedicated, multi-level police investigation, there have been no confirmed sightings, interactions or activity from Sladjana Petrovic since she was last seen on December 26, 2019 at 3:40 p.m.
