She had been in the North Battleford and Thunderchild First Nation areas to attend a funeral on April 27 and said after the funeral that she planned on returning to Edmonton.

“Investigators are working to determine if Tiki left the North Battleford area, as she did not have a known mode of transportation or the means to leave. Investigators are concerned that she may have attempted to hitchhike back to Alberta.”

Battlefords RCMP and the RCMP Major Crimes Unit continue to investigate what happened to Laverdiere and are asking anyone who may have seen her or come into contact with her since April 29 to contact them or Crime Stoppers. They also want to hear from anyone who may have seen a woman walking along Highway 16 in an attempt to hitchhike since that date.

Laverdiere is five-foot-four and 140 pounds. She has burgundy hair and usually wears grey contact lenses. She also has small tattoos on her neck and eyebrow as well as nose piercings.

“At the time of her disappearance, she may have been carrying a Louis Vuitton handbag and had been seen wearing bright white shoes and a black jacket/pants with unique red and white stripes,” police said. “Tiki walks with a slight impediment.”
