WATCH: Saskatoon police say they are is entering into a homicide investigation in regards to the disappearance of 30-year-old Megan Gallagher – Jan 22, 2021

The Saskatoon Police Service (SPS) says it’s investigating the disappearance of a 30-year-old woman as a homicide.

Megan Michelle Gallagher was reported missing in September 2020.

“It’s challenging, for sure. We were definitely hoping for a different result, but it is a little bit of movement,” father Brian Gallagher said.

“As it’s gone on for so long, it’s less of a shock.”

The major crime section has been assisting with the suspicious missing persons file and has spoken to several people, according to a press release on Friday.

Police said there remain others who they wish to speak with.

Gallagher has several tattoos, described as:

  • large owl from shoulder to elbow
  • cross behind her ear
  • rainbow-coloured feather on her ankle
  • “Jake” and “Adam” beneath her arm
  • #13 on her hand

“If anybody has any information that will help with a resolution, please let Saskatoon Police Services know as soon as you can,” Brian Gallagher said.

“If you think it’s insignificant, you never know. It might be just the piece that they’re looking for.”

“We sure do miss her.”

Brian Gallagher described his daughter as a wonderful, caring and humble woman with a daughter who just turned three years old.
