RCMP say human remains found near Dawson Creek, B.C., have been identified as a woman who was reported missing late last year. Renee Didier, who also goes by Supernant, was found on May 18.

The Cree woman, a mother of two, was last seen on gas station surveillance footage from Dec. 3, 2023.

Her family members were searching for her since that time and reported her missing person to the RCMP.

Her grandmother, Verna Cardinal, was pleading for people on social media to call her if they had any information as to her whereabouts.
Didier, who was 40 when she disappeared, is one of four people to go missing from Dawson Creek — a city in the Peace River region around 740 km north of Vancouver and 20 km from the Alberta border. The city has a population of 12,000.

The Mounties say their North District Major Crime Unit is now investigating her death along with another case of unidentified remains discovered in April along a rural road.

Statements from Dawson Creek RCMP over the last year show Didier is among four people to go missing from the area since March 2023.
Police say another Indigenous woman, Darylyn Supernant, was reported missing in March 2023, while a 24-year-old man, Dave Daniel Domingo, disappeared last August, and Cole Hosack was last seen on New Year’s Eve.

The statement appealing for information about Darylyn Supernant says she was 24 at the time she was last seen on March 15, 2023.
Late last August, RCMP issued a statement saying Domingo was missing after a “possible shooting” in the Rolla area, just outside Dawson Creek.

And in January, they issued an appeal for the public’s help in finding Hosack, who was last seen leaving the Lonestar Nightlife bar in Dawson Creek on Dec. 31.

The statement said 24-year-old Hosack is not from Dawson Creek and he was set to leave for Medicine Hat, Alta., for a new job on Jan. 5.
Dawson Creek RCMP issued a statement last month saying officers had responded to a report of human remains found along 219 Road near Saskatoon Creek.

The BC Coroners Service and major crime investigators were looking into the death, they said. Authorities have not yet publicly identified who those remains belong to.

Anyone with information about Didier’s death or disappearance is asked to call Dawson Creek RCMP at 250-784-3700 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
