APTN National News
The commissioners in charge of leading the national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women start their work in September.

They’re tasked with getting to the root of the disproportionate number of Indigenous women who are either murdered or go missing in Canada.

In the lead up to the commission’s work, APTN is taking a look back at some of the stories we’ve reported on – stories as they originally aired.

In this report, three families  in Saskatchewan explain how they tried to get help from police to find their missing loved ones.

This story originally aired in 2001. The reporter was Vera Houle.
