Friction building between Drag the Red volunteers and Winnipeg police

APTN National News
A group of volunteer searchers with Drag the Red say the police are not taking the group seriously.

The volunteers have been searching for clues to cases of missing or murdered Indigenous women and men.

They have found a number of curious items including four teeth which were discovered Monday night.

But it took hours for police to arrive.
