Police have charged a man in the death of a 15-year-old girl from Little Red River Cree Nation in northern Alberta.

Roderica Ribbonleg was last seen July 5 in the area of John D’or Prairie, about 750 kilometres north of Edmonton.

RCMP say clothing was located in a forested area there a week later, and further investigation led to her remains.

Officers arrested Jason Alec Tallcree in John D’Or Prairie, where he lives, on Wednesday.

Tallcree has been charged with first-degree murder and is scheduled to appear in High Level Provincial Court on Monday.

RCMP continue to investigate and ask the public to come forward with any information about the homicide.
