SASKATOON – It’s been just over four months since Sheree Fertuck was last seen leaving the family farm near Kenaston, Sask. Mounties are now calling the Saskatoon woman’s disappearance a homicide investigation.

Investigators said they came to their conclusion following lengthy searches and an analysis of the evidence.

Fertuck, 51, was last seen leaving the family farm east of Kenaston on the afternoon of Dec. 7, 2015. Her semi truck was found at a gravel pit off Highway 15 the following morning.

Since she was last seen, Fertuck has not had any contact with her family and there has been no banking or cell phone activity.

“Sheree’s family, like so many other families, have said that every possible scenario of what happened runs through their minds,” said Staff Sgt. Murray Chamberlin from the RCMP’s major crime unit.

Investigators said they will be searching specific locations in Saskatchewan starting Wednesday in an effort to locate Fertuck and evidence related to her disappearance.

Landowners will be advised of the searches and police are not asking the public for help.

“Our mission is to find Sheree and bring her home,” said Chamberlin.
