REGINA – Eleven years ago five-year-old Tamra Keepness went missing from her own home, but she hasn’t been forgotten by her family or the community.
“I was just driving by myself in this morning and thinking ‘oh my god, how can some people live with this for 11 years,’” said Lucinda Toto, Tamra’s great aunt. “How do they sleep? Do they have a conscience?”
The eleventh annual BBQ to mark Tamra’s disappearance was attended by Regina Police members, as well as concerned citizens at Core Community Park.
The reward for information regarding the case was doubled to $50,000 last year on the tenth anniversary of her disappearance.
The case remains open and Regina Police Deputy Chief Dean Rae says the investigation is ongoing and that police haven’t lost hope.
“It is never too late to bring that closure to the family,” he said. “Let the family know that we’re still caring, that we’re still committed to this investigation, and will continue this until we hopefully get a resolution.”
Anyone with information in this case is asked to contact the Regina Police Service at 306-777-6500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
