EDMONTON – RCMP investigators from KARE have unveiled new evidence in the missing persons case of Amber Alyssa Tuccaro, who hasn’t been seen since August 18, 2010.
On Tuesday, KARE investigators released a voice recording taken from a cellphone conversation between Tuccaro and an unknown male.
Police are calling the male a person of interest in Tuccaro’s disappearance.
Tuccaro was last seen leaving a Nisku hotel room in 2010. Investigators say the call took place after Tuccaro left the hotel room.
“We know that the voice on the tape belongs to a man who was in Amber’s company after she was last seen, so identifying him is a critical piece in our investigation,” said RCMP Staff Sergeant Gerard MacNeil of KARE in a written release. “We want the public to go online and listen to his voice. Our hope is that someone out there will recognize him and call us.”
Some of the material on the tape is disturbing, as Tuccaro expresses concern about her whereabouts.
Amber Tuccaro is described as an Aboriginal female, 5’6″ in height, and 144 lbs with brown eyes.
In 2010 when she vanished, Tuccaro was 20 years old with black hair with blonde streaks in it.
Anyone who can identify the voice on the tape or who knows anything about Tuccaro’s disappearance is asked to call Project KARE toll free at 1-877-412-KARE (5273) or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Edmonton residents can also call KARE at 780-509-3356.
